Polo Bathroom Sets | Britain has a lot to respond to when ever you are looking at state housing. I had a friend that lived on a council estate that was clearly built to remind the inhabitants of the 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 few miles away.
So you can imagine my surprise when on visiting Bolzano – a smaller alpine town in Italy, I discovered that their state housing looked more like an exclusive block that you could get in better aspects of London.
The buildings had light coloured exteriors and enormous balconies, covered in window baskets so the tenants could fill them with colour. And this they did with gusto. They were lovely and check out show that basic things needn’t be unattractive and that if we invested additional time in good design we can lift the spirits of those less fortunate than ourselves.
I noticed the same with another latin proponent of fine design. This time it had been a Spanish Bathroom manufacturer called Roca, who’s basic 4 Piece Bathroom set referred to as Roca Polo signifies that basic doesn’t have to mean unattractive, or lacking quality. The simple toilet and basin have been built to look nice in pretty much any environment but have not been over engineered, so they’re still eminently affordable.

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