Designer-approved combinations

GROHE BestMatch™ makes designing your own bathroom even more fun. Simply click through the best combinations on the website or the app, save your personal favourites and post them on Pinterest or Facebook to discuss them with your friends.

GROHE BestMatch™ is not based on a simple formula for the calculation of spout length, washbasin depth and the angle of incidence of the water. To make this online tool available to its customers, GROHE installed various faucet lines on the current washbasin lines from different manufacturers and subjected them to extensive tests. The tests were designed to establish the amount of splashing when the faucet is opened and during hand washing, the amount of space remaining between the spout and the basin as well as the visual coherence of a combination.

Paul Flowers, Senior Vice President Design of GROHE, personally examined all combinations prior to the tests and matched faucets to basins based on their shared design features. Some 3,000 combinations have already been tested in the GROHE Lab – more will follow.

A few clicks take users to the dream team for their bathroom

And this is how GROHE BestMatch™ works: The user chooses a faucet or a washbasin. Filters such as style, product type, form, installation and type of operation gradually narrow down the search. Products range from standard washbasins to built-in and under-counter basins to countertop basins and from faucets of different heights to free-standing single-lever mixers to wallmounted spouts. Straightforward navigation, a convenient search window, numerous decision-making aids and explanatory charts provide quick orientation. The search results can be narrowed down further by adding factors such as price range, brand, product line, faucet size and the style of the combination product, so that only the best variants will be shown. The result: no more annoying splashing of water, excellent comfort in use and great looks.

Thanks to the realistic presentation of the products, everybody can evaluate the possible combinations without requiring a lot of imagination or the capacity to think three-dimensionally. This way, even combinations, which are nowhere to be found in local showrooms can be explored and shortlisted. This allows users to find the perfect bespoke solution for their bathroom.

What has long since been taken for granted in many spheres of everyday life such as fashion, living, food, electronics or automobiles now also comes true in the bathroom industry thanks to GROHE: an easy-to-use configurator offering genuine added value for the design of bathrooms. GROHE BestMatch™ makes splashing water and unsightly design combinations of washbasin and faucet a thing of the past - GROHE will find the dream team for any bathroom.
