How to equip the bathroom? First of all, everyone remembers the washbasin and the pedestal under it. Today, you can choose a variety of models and styles, but the kit remains virtually the same. At the bottom is a convenient curbstone with doors, a washstand is built into the top of the countertop. Depending on what the area has a bathroom, the furnishing options can vary. For a small bathroom it is best to use a narrow locker with a sink, above it, place a small mirror with illumination and shelves. If the bathroom is large, then along one wall you can arrange the headset. You can choose a rectangular cube, its table top will not only accommodate a built-in washbasin, but also serve as stylish and beautiful shelves for hygienic supplies.

A mirror above the washbasin can be combined with a hanging cupboard or shelves. It is arranged in such a way that you can see yourself well, too low or high mirrors will be uncomfortable. Such a suite is usually located in front of the entrance door, there is enough free space in the room, on one side of which there is a toilet, and on the other - a shower cubicle or a bath. The location of objects depends mainly on the shape of the bathroom.

The interior of any bathroom can accommodate hanging lockers. In small rooms they can be combined with mirrors. It is better to purchase a case-pencil box, which will be as convenient and practical as possible. It can store towels, linens, hygiene items, household chemicals. Choose furniture in such a way that it is protected from moisture. For example, a tree should be painted or impregnated with special oils.

Hinged lockers can be installed anywhere, but we must remember that in the bathroom all items should be at arm's length. The best place for such furnishings will be a place above the washbasin, toilet, washing machine. For a large bathroom, there are sofas, special chairs, but there is no special need for them. The fabric does not tolerate constant humidity. If necessary, then put a comfortable couch with a coating of artificial leather. Today in stores you can find a set specially designed for bathrooms.

How to choose a towel in the bathroom? It is necessary to determine what exactly it will be. Water devices have their advantages. They are convenient, easy to connect to water supply pipes, but their temperature depends on the temperature of the supplied water.
