Jack Skellington Bathroom Set | Britain provides extensive to answer because you are looking at state housing. I had a pal that lived on the council estate that was clearly built to remind the inhabitants of these station in your life. The buildings were pre-war dark bricked edifices with narrow stair wells and dark corners. The waist-high walls of the wind-swept corridors were brick and punctuated every few meters using a small opening covered in iron bars. Every time I visited this friend I would leave feeling quite depressed and breathed a sigh of relief when I got back to my humble but well lit and open home a number of miles away.
So imaginable my surprise when on visiting Bolzano – a small alpine town in Italy, I discovered that their state housing looked similar to an exclusive block that you could discover in the greater areas of London.
The buildings had light coloured exteriors and enormous balconies, covered in window baskets hence the tenants could fill them colour. And this they did with gusto. They were lovely and go to show that basic things needn’t be unattractive and that as we invested added time in good design we can easily lift the spirits of the less fortunate than ourselves.
I noticed the same with another latin proponent of good design. This time it was a Spanish Bathroom manufacturer called Roca, who’s basic 4 Piece Bathroom set referred to as the Roca Polo demonstrates basic doesn’t always have to mean unattractive, or lacking quality. The simple toilet and basin are already built to look great in just about any environment but haven’t been over engineered, so they’re still eminently affordable.

So there it’s. Manufacturers and architects take notice. Good design makes people happy. End of rant.
