Kohler has revealed a smart new bathroom must-have that allows you to celebrate sci-fi-inspired style – and cut your water usage by 40% in the process.

Showerheads conventionally use 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute); however, the Statement VES Showerhead is different. The sleek bathroom fixture, which debuted at the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in February, has a 0.5 GPM (gallons per minute) pause – meaning you can limit your water usage by 40%. 

At first glance, we wouldn't blame you for thinking this showerhead came straight out of the space age, this design is focused on the future.

The fixture is a pioneer in the world of bathroom ideas – from its sustainable assets to its sleek design that will stand as a talking point in all contemporary spaces. However, alongside its good looks and eco-friendly qualities, this showerhead could also save you money on your bills too. 

If you use less water (in this case, 40% less) it can potentially save on energy bills because you will use less energy to keep your water heated. The idea that you can cut your water bill by having shorter showers if you're on a water metre is equally relevant in this case. However, with this shower head, you will use less water without cutting your shower short.

But how is this possible? We hear you ask. This modern bathroom idea uses Katalyst air-induction Technology, which promises to maintain that luxury shower effect. It claims to ensure that the water you do use retains heat, and also offers strong coverage. So, you don't need to worry about cold, weak showers if you make the switch.

Alongside its ability to lower your bills, the eco-friendly showerhead has made exciting strides into improving sustainability in the bathroom, without sacrificing experience. 

'Wellness, sustainability, and interiors with a distinct sense of personality have been prominent trends throughout 2021, and this will continue through to 2022,' says interior designer Tom Howley (opens in new tab). The emphasis on sustainability and wellness is expected to reset interior design trends of the future.

The fixture combines both wellness and sustainability whilst offering the opportunity to use less water. So, we expect we could soon be hearing a lot more about the Statement VES Showerhead. 

The fixture in question isn't available on Kohler.com (opens in new tab) just yet. However, you can preorder via Kohler Signature Stores and Experience Centers now.
