Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes. Harnessing that inspiration and using it as a starting point to guide you through your choices can invigorate everything you do, including the spaces you inhabit.
Maybe you love Victorian novels or have a favorite pottery collection? Or a recent trip or simple walk around your neighborhood energized both your legs and imagination? Perhaps that meal you ate last night delighted all of your senses? A simple idea can spark a fresh new approach to designing a dream space that fits you perfectly. With help from Kohler you can tap into that inspiration to realize your dream kitchen or bathroom.

To get you started, here are six Kohler bathroom and kitchen ideas that find inspiration in many places.
Favorite Paint Color
Browsing paint chips could be your catalyst for a desert escape. Taking cues from Benjamin Moore’s “Blue Hydrangea” paint chip, the feeling of open space and endless blue skies abound in this midcentury modern kitchen.
Kohler’s sleek Polished Chrome and stainless steel finishes add modern panache to a pared down space. The industrial-style faucets bend into ingenious angles that make it a great cleanup tool. The cast iron sink’s subtle dimensional white, reminiscent of tiny salt crystals, echos the countertop’s flecks.
Use your travel photos as inspiration for pops of color, and balance the room’s aesthetic with a mix of iconic vintage furnishings to perfectly capture mid-century modern style.
Handcrafted Ceramics Collection
The rise in popularity of exquisite handmade ceramics is a huge trend in both handmade and interiors right now. Local, handcrafted pottery make stunning pieces to covet, and a wonderful starting point for your home improvement project. The items you collect reflect your aesthetic, and connect with you on an emotional level. Utilize this as inspiration to design your space and your space can become a gallery showcase for your collection.
To punctuate a neutral space with color, choose cast-iron sinks in a rich hue that complements the overall room shades and provides eye-catching interest. Add sparkle sparingly, via a shimmering chandelier and faucets in a polished chrome finish.
With soft hues, matte finishes, and clean lines, this contemporary kitchen emanates an understated feel, perfect for highlighting a few of your favorite things.
We’ve likely all been inspired by Hollywood at some moment in time. Maybe it was dreams of stardom as a kid, or a favorite recent movie that captured your imagination, or perhaps you spotted some architecture strolling around your neighborhood, that got those wheels turning in your mind. Why not bring a little Hollywood glamour home?
With its iconic color palette, classic details, and architecture on a grand scale, this Hollywood master bath is as sophisticated as it gets. Add modern elements like midcentury-inspired lighting and a pared-down, wall-hung toilet for a look that’s eclectic, playful and #NeverTooChic. Marble, crown molding, and sprays for days: Who wouldn’t feel every inch a star in this shower?
Downton Abbey fans can re-create their modern spin on the hit TV series with the Victorian-Edge inspired bathroom.
The bathroom features an abundance of built-in storage from the shower to the vanity. Faucets and fixtures from a single collection help to unify the various elements of the room. The only piece missing is, where is Carson when you need him?
Did you fall in love with that wallpaper because you love hummingbirds? Or maybe you’ve never really thought much about hummingbirds but were intrigued by the fanciful and cheerful patterns? Art and wallpaper can inspire and delight us on a daily basis. How better to start your day while enjoying your cup of coffee?
An eclectic blend of textures, colors, and materials takes center stage in this warm, livable kitchen, where pattern is seriously at play. Balance it with the strong, simple lines of a straightforward faucet and a sturdy farmhouse sink. Peek out the window and a real hummingbird might just drop by to say hello!
Can’t let go of your childhood memorabilia, granny’s suitcases or your 7th grade gymnastics trophy? Don’t squirrel away your prized keepsakes. Shop your old school trunk, and you’ll soon discover a trove of collectables that make great decorative statements.
Create a nostalgic, preppy chic bathroom inspired by your school days, starting with Kohler’s heritage-style fixtures, claw-footed cast iron tub and chrome faucet, as a starting point, pairing with a herribone timber floor, and girly ditsy decorative accents to enliven the space. Complete this glorified junk shop look with vintage paintings in gilt edged frames, with contrasting a patterned wallpaper.
Kohler’s rich heritage as a bathroom and kitchen innovator boasts many industry firsts, including the world’s first cast iron bath tub; the first colored bathroom suite; ground-breaking print ads during the 1970s; and more recently the first tank-less toilet; the carbon-fiber Karbon articulated faucet, and the most advanced smart toilet, Numi. Kohler’s legacy strengthens its position as a thought leader in the home décor industry.
