Polo Bathroom Set | Britain offers quite a bit to respond to for when you are looking for state housing. I had an associate that lived with a council estate which has been clearly built to remind the inhabitants with their 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 which has 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 in to my humble but well lit and open home a couple of miles away.
So imaginable my surprise when on visiting Bolzano – a little alpine town in Italy, I discovered that their state housing looked a lot more like a personal block which you may get in the greater elements of London.
The buildings had light coloured exteriors and huge balconies, covered in window baskets and so the tenants could fill them with colour. And this they did with gusto. They were lovely and go to demonstrate that basic things doesn’t have to be unattractive which if we invested additional time in good design we could lift the spirits of people less fortunate than ourselves.
I noticed exactly the same thing with another latin proponent of fine design. This time it turned out a Spanish Bathroom manufacturer called Roca, who’s basic 4 Piece Bathroom set called the Roca Polo demonstrates basic doesn’t always have to mean unattractive, or lacking quality. The simple toilet and basin have been built to look good in just about any environment but have not been over engineered, so they’re still eminently affordable.

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