Lilac Bathroom Sets | Britain provides extensive to answer because it comes to state housing. I had a buddy that lived on a council estate that has been clearly made to remind the inhabitants of these station in everyday life. The buildings were pre-war dark bricked edifices with narrow stair wells and dark corners. The waist-high walls from the wind-swept corridors were brick and punctuated every few meters having 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 returned to my humble but well lit and open home a few miles away.
So you can imagine my surprise when on visiting Bolzano – a little alpine town in Italy, I discovered that their state housing looked more like an exclusive block that you could find in the greater aspects of London.
The buildings had light coloured exteriors and large balconies, covered in window baskets and so the tenants could fill these with colour. And this they did with gusto. They were lovely and head to reveal that basic things must not be unattractive and that whenever we invested more time in good design we can lift the spirits of those less fortunate than ourselves.
I noticed the same thing with another latin proponent of good design. This time it had been a Spanish Bathroom manufacturer called Roca, who’s basic 4 Piece Bathroom set known as the Roca Polo signifies that basic doesn’t always have to mean unattractive, or lacking quality. The simple toilet and basin are actually made to look good in basically any environment but haven’t been over engineered, so they’re still eminently affordable.

So there it can be. Manufacturers and architects take note. Good design makes people happy. End of rant.
