How will it all fit together?
In yesteryear, each bathroom appliance was attached to the floor and wall, maintenance was a laborious process and leaks could go undetected. Springwave modular baths and showers are freestanding allowing easy access for maintenance and bathroom remodelling. With the dawn of computer aided design we can build up a detailed graphic plan, slotting in each piece of bathroom furniture using precise measurements before actual installation. This allows us a real idea on how our choices will influence the look and feel of our bathroom, before spending time and money on the installation procedure. All of our customers are offered a complimentary bathroom design service to ensure that their choice of bathroom design works for them.
"Modular baths and showers are freestanding allowing easy access for maintenance and bathroom remodelling."
Today's bathroom market offers so much more than the bath, toilet, sink and mirror. Bathroom furniture is designed to integrate storage with beautiful design to bring style and sophistication to your bathrooms. Sink integrated cabinets designed to stow bathroom products discretely and shelving to display soft fluffy towels are available in an array of designs and colours to suit any taste. Modern manufacturing techniques allow the inclusion of waterproofed natural woods and natural stone to bring out the best in our bathrooms and ensuites, and best of all style and sophistication has now been introduced to the once dreary bathroom mirror. Where once a stark reflective glass was screwed to the wall, complementary frames and hidden storage features are now readily available.
"We don't just love selling quality bathrooms we also love fitting quality bathrooms."
The Thoroughly Modern Bathroom
If you're of a certain age, it's not impossible to remember the bathroom of the 80's, 70's or 60's even beyond! A room difficult to design by class or status, containing very much of the same furniture, the only way to define the social status of the owner was by room dimension. Sitting in a starkly lit bath, in the quiet, where the only entertainment was a book, staring at the bathroom product clutter or watching a spider trying to clamber out of the sink.
Back to today and the bathroom is a very different place. As the demand for technology and comfort have risen, bathrooms have become as tailored a room as any other room in the house, reflecting the personality and style of its owner.
Dedicated bathrooms first came about during the 19th century; however, they were the reserve of the rich. The room was furnished with standalone furniture including a freestanding bath and commode.
It wasn't until the latter half of the 20th century that the claw foot or tin bath was updated to the built in units we have in our homes today. The rise in 'in home' plumbing, a result of housing construction after the 1st World War, integrated the design of water carrying pipe work which led to designated bathrooms with built in fixtures including sink, toilet and bath units. In 1921 1% of homes had a dedicated bathroom in comparison to 100% of homes at the end of the last century.
As we move into the 21st century our focus has shifted again to the use of modular bathroom furniture that allow us to mix and match fixtures according to our needs and personal taste. There has been a steady rise in demand for bath or shower pods that can be re-sited for easy maintenance or room re-design. Our expectations for our bathing experience has evolved with this; bathroom music was once a past time of the brave or fool hardy, depending on the length of your electrical cable. Now we have shower and bath units complete with music players, chromatherapy lighting, hydro jets, steam generators and aromatherapy all being controlled by a central integral, modular computer, which can be safely installed to fulfil our desire for invigoration or relaxation, depending on the mood.
As the bathroom revolution takes off, house builders are trying to keep up with the desire of multiple house dwellers finding more and more reasons to linger longer in the bathroom. The bathroom has evolved from a place to attend to personal hygiene to a room to actively pursue emotional wellbeing, health and fitness through the use of hydro-massage jets, steam and colour.
The number of bathrooms in our homes is increasing; the average 4 bedroom house will now usually include an en-suite bathroom, a second bathroom and a cloakroom. As technology progresses and becomes more affordable, home owners are looking to incorporate spa quality facilities in to their bathrooms as well as driving down costs and environmental impact. These expectations are fuelling a bathroom revolution that will fundamentally change the function of our 'smallest room' more over the next 15 years than ever before.
