Seashell Bathroom Sets | Britain provides extensive to resolve because it comes to state housing. I had an associate that lived on the council estate that has been clearly designed to remind the inhabitants of their 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 got in to my humble but well lit and open home several miles away.
So imagine my surprise when on visiting Bolzano – a smaller alpine town in Italy, I discovered that their state housing looked more like a private block that you might discover in the greater parts 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 whenever we invested more hours in good design we can lift the spirits of these 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 called the Roca Polo signifies that basic doesn’t have to mean unattractive, or lacking quality. The simple toilet and basin have been designed to look good in just about any environment but weren’t over engineered, so they’re still eminently affordable.

So there it is. Manufacturers and architects please note. Good design makes people happy. End of rant.
