Jika Mio Close Coupled Eco Friendly Toilet Suite

Everyone should try to use water sparingly in their bathroom. Some good tips include things like not running the tap while brushing your teeth. A dripping tap leaking ten drops per minute will leak 170 litres in a month so leaky taps should always be fixed as soon as possible. Taking a shower instead of a bath saves an incredible amount of water a quick shower uses 50 litres of water instead of a bath which uses 150 litres. A water-saving shower head can be fitted to prevent heavy water flow and saves a lot of water per household.

Installing an economy flush on a toilet is a good idea as it allows the toilet user to select a light or heavy flush, instead of always flushing a large amount of water each time it is used. The cistern of the toilet should be checked regularly because leaking seals can also waste massive amounts of water.

Modern Bathroom Lighting

If you have a bathroom that is sorely in need of some extra lighting there are lots of options for you to create your perfect bright and breezy bathroom. You must first look carefully at the bathroom and detail what lighting is already in place; you will soon be able to turn those dark corners into a bright and luxurious paradise without too much effort. Importantly, you must remember that if lighting fittings are not intended for use in a bathroom they should not, under any circumstances be used.

One of the best ways to light a bathroom and to add some extra storage space as well is to fit an illuminated mirror. Roper Rhodes make a stunning range of illuminated mirrored cabinets and one example is the Absolute Cabinet with a triple mirror. This has a sleek light fitting incorporating 28 LED lights and a shaver socket. It also has 6 adjustable glass shelves. Lighting is controlled by an infra-red sensor on / off switch and is finished in aluminium colour.

Schneider Graceline 3 Door Mirror Cabinet

Most bathrooms contain the usual array of toiletries – soap, shampoo, toothpaste and brushes etc – which can quickly make the way a room look cluttered, especially when you add in all of the other cosmetic and cleaning products. By installing plenty of bathroom furniture the clutter can be stowed away to give your bathroom a more open appearance while remaining practical and functional.

Fitting a Schneider Graceline 3 door mirror cabinet will resolve these issues and give you a pleasant lighting effect as well. The profile is natural anodised aluminium, 3 hinged doors with soft door closure, door dimensions are 50/30/50cm. There are mirrors both inside and outside the cabinet, and it is comprehensively fitted out with intermediate walls, continuously adjustable glass shelves, accessory box and magnifying mirror, dummy plate left and socket right above, double pull switch above centre. Indirect lighting is achieved through fluorescent tubes with electronic ballast.
