Bidets

Bidets

Bidets are no longer very popular, but they are a useful addition to a larger bathroom, giving a balanced look to other sanitary ware. Apart for their obvious use in washing the ‘nether regions’, I know some people use them for washing their hair, rather than using a basin or having to fill the bath. Read More

Basins

Freestanding Baths

Freestanding Baths

Freestanding baths are beautiful focal points in any bathroom, but it is important to look for a bath which is strong enough to be self supporting. Obviously cast iron is a material ideally suited to this type of bath, however nowadays good quality acrylic coated baths have additional reinforcement, (some with triple layering), to compete with their cast iron cousins. This type of bath is not restricted to older type designs, you can now get beautiful modern and futuristic styled versions, some of which require a dedicated panel. It pays to think about the rigidity of the panel and accessibility for maintenance when choosing a bath with this type of cover. Read More

When I look at a bath I see the most important part of a bathroom suite. I agree that basins and toilets shape and design makes a bathroom look special but a good quality bath makes your suite last, the only other part of a suite which varies massively in its day to day performance is the toilet seat. Both the bath and toilet seat need to be well designed and strong enough for constant use. Read More
