It used to be that when renovating a bathroom, you had very limited options. A toilet was a standard item that may have a few options for colours, but it was never thought of as an element of style. While bathroom furniture pieces like vanities were an opportunity to show a little personality and were customizable to a point, they were mainly solid wooden blocks with drawers and countertops.
Today, however, the options at Robinson Lighting & Bath Centre seem to be limited only by your imagination. The colours finishes and styles for bathroom fixtures are nearly endless. One trend we’ve seen developing in the world of bathroom décor is wall-hung fixtures. More common in Europe, this trend is starting to take off in North America. If you’re renovating and want a clean look that adds space to your bathroom, wall-hung toilets and furniture might be for you.
Wall-Hung Toilets and Furniture Create Space
One way to create a more open and spacious-looking bathroom is to find wall-hung fixtures. With its water tank sitting inside the wall, a wall-hung toilet is more compact. The Duravit ME by Starck is a perfect example of a wall-hung toilet with a simple, compact design. It also frees up floor space, for a more spacious feeling to the bathroom.
With wall-mounted bathroom furniture, you’ll have no wasted space with big, clunky vanities. The L-Cube series from Duravit has numerous style and size options, so you’ll only have the storage you need, and nothing more.
Get a Cleaner Design
Aside from the physical space benefits, the tight, compact design of wall-hung toilets and furniture has an aesthetically-pleasing simplicity to it. Not only do these options provide more space, but they give the sensation of spaciousness, especially in a smaller bathroom where space is at a premium.
As an added bonus for wall-mounted bathroom furniture, you can also stand closer to the mirror to apply makeup or shave, since your feet can go under the unit.
Nobody likes cleaning behind a toilet. Fewer corners, nooks and crannies means less time spent cleaning. Simply wipe down the surfaces, and you’re done. Sweeping and mopping is no longer a chore either, especially in smaller bathrooms with tight corners. You’ll have access to the entire floor space.
Duravit Makes Life Simpler
These options from Duravit are just a few of the styles and configurations available that can match your vision for your bathroom. It’s plain to see, though — wall-hung fixtures create an elegant, practical solution to the issue of space in the bathroom.
