London builders: Wall mounted bathroom equipment. Part one.
Not only ceiling can be suspended, and not only one of the seven wonders of the world such as hanging gardens of Babylon. At the beginning of 80's history of development of the bathroom equipment was marked by an appearance of suspended, or wall hung, equipment, with closet basins as pioneers. "Suspended miracle" became an alternative to floor-standing bathroom equipment. Don't think that this innovation emerged as a result of designers' embellishment and oddity. This fashion was formed under the influence of concrete and totally prosaic needs of hygiene, comfort and economy. The first examples of the type appeared in public water closets, where hygienic demands were extremely strict.
In ten years, in 90's wall hung bathroom suits such as closet basins, urinals, bidets, washbasins successfully moved to private bathroom units and increased number in bathroom upgrades including bathroom furniture and bathroom accessories and new bathroom suites. Buying a new house or remodeling your existing one, the bathroom is the place to start with since the bathroom is the most frequent room to use by every member of your family. But before starting your bathroom renovation adventure it is important to consider your bathroom units in terms of usability and place not mentioning the design. If you want to break away from traditional bathroom styles and add a fresh look of elegance to your new bathroom have a look at wall mounted bathroom units models. Every housewife knows that the most hard-to-reach and difficult-to-clean places are the areas around and under the bathroom equipment.
Wall mounted bathroom units allow to clean up the area more quickly and effectively. Bathroom design becomes, owing to the wall hung equipment, more exquisite, refined and airy. You must have managed to look through the illustrations. Such bathrooms look quite unusual, they are distinguished by some airiness and lightness, "hovering" effect. Owing to lack of equipment on the floor, the place looks more spacious. The tile is distinguished, its pattern is clearly visible on the floor and the walls. You will not see any connections, corrodible pipes or lock valves. They are hidden behind the tile, at the same time forming additional useful bathroom space. Sink drainage siphon is covered by a half-column or a half-pedestal, concealing piping and water drain. In case siphon is uncovered, it does not look like itself, but becomes a "modern technologies alloy" created by designers.
Light and refined, it is in fact a continuation of the sink. That is the example of totally coordinated design. Known manufacturers usually offer ready-made models within the collection: the sink is offered together with a siphon and a mixer tap. In the offered collections it is often possible to observe wall hung closet basin model with a built-in flash tank and a model with an external tank. Flash tanks usually have two regimes of water drain. On pressing one button half tank volume is spent - 3 liters, thus saving large quantity of the consumed water. On pressing the other button the full tank volume is spent - 6 or 9 liters.
