Bathing culture around the world

The world has never seen anything like the bathing culture in ancient Rome. For three centuries, the Romans competed to build the most prestigious baths – with each building bigger and more magnificent than the last. In the fourth century AD, there were 11 imperial bath houses and 856 smaller establishments in the city, and the largest had room for 3,000 bathers.

Welcome to the world of Gustavsberg!

With this page we want to share inspiration and information that can be of help when you are about to renovate or build a bathroom. We want to challenge your creativity, but also give you the latest updates on trends and tell you more about us and our broad product range of smart, high quality products.

Inspiration has been one of the driving forces in this company for about 190(!) years. Without it we would not have been here today. With the help of inspiration, the bathroom has gone from being a room for only hygienic matters to a room for enjoyment, luxury and relaxing quality time at its best.

If inspiration were a gift, I personally think it's one of the finest things you can give away. So I give it to you. Enjoy!
