Most owners of cottages adhere to the opinion that the bathroom in the dacha is not needed and for a comfortable stay in a country house a shower is quite suitable. It should not be overlooked that in the dachas, especially in winter, it is the bathroom that can be very scarce, because this element is able to radically change the convenience and comfort of water procedures.
The bathroom creates comfort for those residents who prefer to live in the country not only in summer but also in winter.
