Bathroom Ceramics

by Fehed Nicass on Feb 17, 2014

When you first walk into someone’s bathroom, what are you immediately struck by? If they’ve fitted their toilet in the wrong place, then you might be whacked across the knees by that, but otherwise, the gleaming, pristine whiteness of the ceramics will undoubtedly grab your attention.

Most people would be able to live their lives completely oblivious to the rudiments of these units, but if I was to speak to them about bargain ceramic suites I am sure their ears would prick up. Or at least open.

You see, to me, cheap bathroom suites is not necessarily about the lowest price. No, cheapness is relative, and I do not like the negative connotations that hang about the word cheap. Basically, I asseverate that I can get a cheap price, but not cheap products, i.e. I will get value. This is partly due to knowing that White Vitreous China is the finest ceramic material there is, promising you resilience, cleanliness and an enduringly white finish.

But, when you’re looking for cheap bathroom sets, what should come with? Well, the below…

Sinks

The only place to wash your hands, unless you are some sort of animal and don’t mind the second flushing of the toilet. Or the bath, I suppose. But that would just be awkward. Anyway, sinks are essential bathroom units, if only if they act as a lovely bright bowl upon which to fit some ultramodern taps. Be sure to check on your specific model, as some are engineered solely to fit a single mixer tap as opposed to separate faucets.

Bidets

Along with sinus-shredding smelly cheese, existentialism and expert shrugging, the French gave us the word bidet, which is the French for pony. The animal, of course, not the slang definition of the word. Presumably, the name was given because the unflattering pose you adopt athwart and atop the bidet is similar to that of riding a pony. These have dropped from popularity somewhat in the UK, as I haven’t seen many in new design recently. Still, if you want something a little different, bidets are still available.

Baths

Baths do tend to be formed of fibreglass or acrylic, it’s true, but some manufacturers, from their big baths to small baths, still go for ceramics. The advantage is that they retain that vintage essence and look, but the downsides are that these baths chip far easier and also do not retain heat, cooling that bathwater very quickly.

Toilets

This is probably the last thing you would forget when it comes to ceramics, but in the interests of completeness, I have gone ploughing in. One of the easier decisions, toilets tend to come in back to wall and close coupled toilet options, a welcome binary decision I should imagine after perusing four and a half million paint samples. If we are looking to go a little further, and if you are looking to save some money on your household bills, I would heavily recommend a dual flush toilet. Why? Well, with these lavatories allow you to choose from a brief or longer flush, corresponding to – ahem – what you’ve done. This way, there is no water wastage, which is good for the environment and your pocket.
