The bathroom area is small, but it needs to be equipped with sinks, cabinets, washing machines, showers and toilets. There is a new way by changing the water route in advance to move the basin outside the bathroom!
Simplify the Bathroom
If you want the washbasin to be outside the bathroom, the most feasible way is to move the door of the bathroom inward to ensure the privacy of the toilet and bathing area.
This approach is actually the traditional "dry-wet separation".
But the difference is that the original washroom door does not need to be installed, and the basin area and the outer area are more integrated.
A sliding door can be installed between the toilet & the shower area and basin, or a specially customized water resistant door. The floor tiles at the basin area can be designed as a unified design with the outside of the bathroom.
The laundry area and the basin are integrated on the outside, because it is not afraid of moisture, the towel basket does not need to be stuffed in the cabinet.
The overall space has not become more crowded by adding walls. Entering the door, the bathtub and shower head are immediately visible and easy to use.
Generally, ultra-thin lightweight partition walls are used, and waterproof coatings are also applied, so there is no need to worry about the partition walls being too thick or not moisture-proof.
Move the basin outside the door
The size and layout of the bathroom are not satisfactory, so let the washbasin truly stand outside the bathroom door!
Where should I install the basin outside the bathroom door?
First of all, it is recommended to be as close as possible to the original sink drain pipe, which is convenient for construction and saves labor and money.
Secondly, consider the habit of daily use of basins. For example, every morning, if you and your family can't wash and go to the toilet at the same time, put the basin near the bedroom.
You can brush your teeth and wash your face when you get up in the morning and go out.
If there is a corridor end or a concave wall near the toilet, it is most suitable to install the sink cabinet.
But it doesn't matter if there is no concave wall, self-built partitions are equally beautiful.
The lockers for bathing products can be placed above the basin together. In this way, the remodeled bathroom will be more refreshing and easy to take care of.
The wash basin can be placed on the balcony.
The wash basin is placed on the balcony because it does not occupy the kitchen and bathroom space, and it is convenient to dry the towels after washing.
Now that the water pipe has been connected to the balcony, you can also plan a good-looking basin. In addition to washing, water for watering flowers and boiling water can be obtained here.
For a family with one bathroom but three generations living together, one more basin can reduce a lot of inconvenience in life.
Make a simple-style balcony hand-washing area. It’s more convenient to wash your hands and fruits now.
Wash basins can be hung on the wall.
The washbasin can also be hung on the wall to play its function, but it will involve all kinds of wall drilling. And it can’t be moved after it’s built, so consider carefully before decorating it.
The best place to put a basin in the bedroom.
The cosmetic storage cabinet can be installed under the basin. Daily skin care, makeup, and makeup removal can be done easily.
If the toilet is close to the hallway, install a basin beside the hallway to enrich the functions of the hallway.
The dining room can also be equipped with an independent basin, and the water pipe can be taken from the kitchen at the beginning of the decoration.
Installing the basin outside the bathroom, in addition to being practical and convenient, can also match the overall style of the home. The washbasin can be integrated into the design of the cabinet, and the surrounding waterproof treatment should be done.
Those who pursue a quality life will never let go of every detail in life.
Although the bathroom faucet is just a small object, it plays an extraordinary role. Faucet will be used when girls wash their faces, brush their teeth, wash their hands, skin care, make-up. The use is extremely high. The epidemic has quietly receded, but the spread of bacteria through contact has left a deep impression on people. The importance of contact-free faucets is also particularly prominent in preventing the spread of contact with bacteria.
So how do we choose the bathroom faucet? How do different groups of people choose their own faucet? Next, let us analyze one by one through the comparison of several bathroom faucets.
If you go to a store to choose a faucet, we can tell the quality of the faucet by turning the handle, observing the appearance, and listening to the sound. The high-quality faucet has fine processing and good surface finish, which can be close to the mirror effect without distortion. When you switch the faucet by the normal use force, there is no excessive gap between the faucet and the switch. The opening and closing are easy and unobstructed. There is no slippage. The inferior faucet has a large gap and a large sense of resistance. When you tap on the faucet, the sound is dull, which is because the faucet is made by integral casting and the material is copper, indicating that the quality is better.
If you are shopping online, please pay attention to the following factors:
1) Installation Location
Most bathroom faucets are a combination of basin + faucet. The faucet style you choose is directly related to the style of the basin. We can choose the appropriate faucet height according to the installation location. For wall-mounted basins, you can choose a medium-height or low height faucet, and for the countertop basin, you can choose a higher height faucet.
2) Decoration Style
The basin faucet is a very frequently used sanitary ware in the bathroom. It is used for daily washing such as brushing teeth, washing face, washing hands, receiving water, etc. When purchasing, consider practicality and ensure that it matches the overall decoration style properly.
3) Outlet Design
As we all know, the faucet discharges water vertically, but it is easy to touch the basin when washing hands when the water is discharged vertically. Therefore, when purchasing, choose a faucet with an outwardly inclined outlet. When the faucet is turned on, the water will accurately rush to the hand. Of course, pull-out bathroom faucet is a very good choice. Farewell to the fixed types. A wider range of water outlet, free pull, 360° free rotation, easy and convenient operation, meet the multi-directional cleaning, allow you to enjoy every comfortable refreshing.
Seeing this, you may have a question. Is it easy to pull the faucet? What are the precautions when decorating? Today, we will bring you three bathroom faucets in combination with different users
01 Fashion Girl
Every day before going out, fashion girls always do their morning washing seriously. You can often encounter various confusing conditions when washing your face: in order to prevent the cleanser foam from contaminating the handles, you can only leave the faucet without turning off and let the water flow. Don’t know how much water was wasted; in order to save time, wash in the basin. It’s very inconvenient to bend over and turn your head, and it’s hard to wash your hair close to your neck. After washing, a lot of hair is easy to remain in the basin and become a hotbed of bacteria... With the Aquacubic pullout wash basin faucet, these problems are all non-existent!
Innovative drawing design + dual water flow mode, free to switch water flow, 360° free rotation, easy to freshen up. The water outlet can also be moved at will, cleaning dead corners in multiple directions, washing away foam and residual hair, and keep the water area clean at all times. And the faucet height can be adjusted. It is very convenient to wash your hair or fill the basin with water, and it can easily respond to different washing needs.
02 Full-Time Mother
When washing the children's hair at home, I believe that the mothers must have encountered such troubles: the children are too short to reach the faucet, and they are busy finding the right angle to wash their hair. Not only do they have a sore back but also all kinds of uncomfortable crying ceaselessly. Now that you have a home artifact, it can easily help the mothers.
Wash basin faucet pull-out design can meet the cleaning of different heights and multiple directions, and it is convenient for mothers to wash their children's hair in the basin. The dual-flow mode can switch the water flow at any time, the faucet can be adjusted in height, 360° freely rotating, flexible, and meet different needs, wash away the foam in all directions, bringing the child just right cleanliness.
03 White-collar Workers
In fact, the faucet is the focus of the details of the bathroom, which will not only affect the comfort of washing, but also affect the simple style of the bathroom. Therefore, when white-collar workers choose bathroom faucets, they often choose simple styles. After all, in this age of justice, beauty is long enough to be selected.
Every angle of this faucet is born for minimalism, and every color looks shining with noble light. The difference is that this faucet has a variety of spout options, which can be matched with two different color handles to form an eight-inch faucet. The extremely simple design is suitable for any bathroom decoration style. Its confident coating is corrosion-resistant and scratch-resistant, so it can be used with confidence.
All in all, there are thousands of bathroom faucets, and we only choose the one that suits us. The best life is to suit yourself. In Aquacubic, there are a large selection of well designed, high-end manufactured faucets. Please contact us to find more.
In addition to the living room and kitchen, the bathroom that we use every day must not be sloppy in design. No matter if it is more than 10 square meters or less than 2 square meters, you must plan well to use practical and safe bathroom equipment: whether to arrange full bathroom equipment (including bathtub) or half bathroom equipment (excluding bathtub), independent or combined hand washing basins, what materials should be used for floor tiles and walls, and how to effectively use small and distorted spaces without waste, how to place multi-functional equipment without being crowded. If you are being worried about these, you can refer to these 5 bathroom design ideas from style to function, and collect them as inspiration for future designs.
Bathroom Design One: Tiles
For a water-filled bathroom, the easiest way is to attach tiles, which are not only waterproof, but also dry quickly. Common 30*30cm tiles are easy to construct and easy to clean; mosaic tiles can be arranged in patterns, and wood grain tiles solve the problem of solid wood prone to moisture and mildew. Textured bamboo tiles also have anti-slip effects, which are both functional and can create multiple styles of bathroom design materials.
Bathroom Design Two: Cement wall
Using cement as the theme of the bathroom space makes the space pure, visually extraordinarily refreshing and clean. And there is no need to worry about the accumulation of scale in the crevices of the tiles. For maintenance, as long as the bottom is waterproof, the upper transparent waterproof paint is basically unlikely to have sanding problems.
Bathroom Design Three: Black Frame Glass
Industrial style can not only be used in public spaces. For small-sized houses and the bathroom of the master bedroom, black-framed glass can be used instead of solid wall partitions. Not only is it visually more open and transparent, it has its own style compared to ordinary glass compartments.
Bathroom Design Four: Separation of Dry and Wet
Similar to hotels and Japanese residences, sinks and showers can be separate. The independent design not only alleviates the problem of insufficient bathroom space, but also makes the sink a part of the room or public space, and it is also more convenient to use.
Bathroom Design Five: Shower Curtain as A Cubicle
If you want to have both a shower and a bathtub in a small bathroom space, try replacing the glass compartment with a shower curtain. In this way, the basic dry and wet separation can be achieved, and the space occupied by the fixed partition door can be avoided. It has high appearance and can change the pattern style according to the mood.
In China some people say that the struggle in the big city is so hard. Why not go to work in a small town? Is it worth struggling to afford a small apartment for a lifetime? I believe many people will find it worthwhile, because in big cities there are opportunities that cannot be found in small towns. The small apartment is not terrible. We can remodel it. As long as we have a dream, everything is possible. The owner Mr. Zhang who lives in Shanghai, like most ordinary citizens, worked hard all the way from the small hometown and finally settled in Shanghai and bought an apartment of 70 square meters. After having a child, Mr. Zhang took his parents from his hometown. A family of 5 squeezed into a small apartment. There was only one bathroom. Every morning and every evening, they were faced with taking turns to line up to take a bath and wash. They had no patience after some time. So he thought about making another shower room, and he can make the most of the balcony. Looking at the balcony that costs him a lot, only used to pile debris and dry clothes, Mr. Zhang felt it was a pity. He had heard of a case of transforming a balcony into a shower room before, so he wondered why not give it a try. If it fails, it will be dismantled after all. After talking to his wife, Mr. Zhang started serious research. After careful study, he summarized the following points to note:
First of all, it must be waterproof. Due to the special location of the balcony, the back may be the living room or bedroom. Considering that moisture may cause mold and peeling on the back wall, it is recommended that the waterproof layer of the wall where the shower is installed is painted as high as possible. The waterproof coating is generally brushed 2~3 times.
Second, make sure that the ground has a slope. The ground also needs to be waterproofed, and it is also necessary to ensure that the ground has a certain slope so that the sewage from the bath is discharged to the drain and will not flow back to the living room or other places.
Third, strengthen heat preservation. There is a big difference between the balcony shower room and the indoor shower room. Generally, the indoor shower room has only one wall with windows, and it can be kept warm by installing a heating system.
Finally, pay attention to the issue of privacy.
After studying how to install it, the next step is to choose a good shower room. Which products can meet this special demand? Because the balcony shower room is unavoidable from the wind and sun, we must pay attention to its material and anti-rust, anti-corrosion, and anti-fading ability. At the same time, pay attention to whether the frame is strong and stable, and the wall of the shower room must be strong.
After comparison, Mr. Zhang finally chose this shower room. This shower room is based on apartment space. The large apartment frame glass curtain wall, angular and cylindrical surfaces make the entire bathroom space richer.
At the same time, automotive-grade toughened glass has a thickness of 10MM, can withstand 700° high temperature, and has a high strength about 5 times that of ordinary glass, with outstanding impact resistance and thermal stability. In addition, EPM steel mold protection is added, so you don't have to worry about the risk of glass bursting. Even if it breaks, it will still stick to the debris to prevent the glass from splashing and hurting people. You can take a shower without restraint.
The door frame, handle and hinge outside the main body of the shower room are all made of high-quality aluminum alloy, and the surface should also be treated with anti-corrosion, anti-rust and anti-oxidation. In this way, there will be no signs of paint falling off after being exposed to the wind and sun on the balcony, and the structure is relatively strong and not prone to deformation.
In addition, the shower room is installed on the balcony. We will most worry about water will flow everywhere. This shower room has a overflow channel and magnetic tape, which can lock the water in all directions. Don't need to worry about getting the living room wet.
Many years later, people who use black frame shower doors and windows will surely be grateful for this choice.
The black frame has always been loved by people because of its beautiful industrial style. We believe that it is only a matter of time before people find the elegant beauty of a bathroom with black frame shower doors and windows. Black-framed doors and windows made of aluminum or steel look very beautiful in the factory. Whether it is used in the bathroom or other places, it will receive fascinating results. Let's directly look at 8 display pictures that reflect the advantages of black frame shower rooms. I believe there is always one suitable for you.
1. Black frame bathroom doors and windows are the eye-catching emperor of the decoration industry!

Matched with herringbone parallel pattern floor tiles, a small white marble dressing table and a tall dressing mirror. The overall effect is so elegant and restrained.
4. The black frame shower room makes the large white areas appear clearer.
White floor tiles + white bathtub + white sink, the bathroom can easily become monotonous. At this time, we can use black frame shower room and black hexagonal tiles in the shower room to enhance the contrast with the white environment, making the whole room more layered and three-dimensional. Finally, brass showers, brass faucets and geometric chandeliers are used to make the finishing touch.
5. The black framed doors and windows make the walk-in shower room stand out.
An open shower saves space in a small space. It is hard to imagine how elegant a shower room with framed doors and windows is! Due to the good closure of the black frame doors and windows, the slate wall panels and the mosaic wall tiles on the upper wall embellish them, the whole shower room is like a small room fully decorated.

Some faucets are used two or three years, and the water flow is intermittent or rusted into green. The handle is hard to be used for opening and closing. The size of the water flow depends on luck.
Some faucets have been used for 20 years, and the surface is still as smooth as new. The feel when adjusting the angle of the handle is still as silky as the chopsticks in a honey jar. The speed of the water flow are still adjusted as you like. So how can we pick a faucet that can last 20 or 30 years or more?
First, the kitchen faucet can be rotated 360°.
For ease of use, the kitchen faucet should be taller, and the spout should also be very long. It is best to extend above the drain and not splash water. If there is a hot water line in the kitchen, this type of faucet should also contain hot and cold hoses. In order to meet various needs, most of the kitchen faucets can rotate the body of the faucet left and right. The sprayer part of some faucet can be pulled out, which is convenient for cleaning to all corners of the sink.
Second, if the budget is enough, the material of stainless steel is preferred.
The material of kitchen faucet is generally brass, which is the most common faucet on the market. However. Due to the characteristics of the kitchen environment, pure brass faucets are not necessarily the best choice. All pure brass faucets have electroplating on the outermost layer, and the function of electroplating is to prevent corrosion and rust of the brass inside. There is a lot of oily smoke in the kitchen, and the greasy hands and cleaners on the hands when washing the dishes make it often necessary to clean the faucet. If you do not use the correct way to clean, it is likely to damage the electroplating layer of the faucet, causing the faucet to be corroded and rusted. If you want to choose an all-brass kitchen faucet, you must be sure to have excellent electroplating, otherwise it will easily cause the faucet to rust and corrode.
And now some manufacturers use high-quality 304 stainless steel to make faucets. Compared with pure brass faucets, faucets made of high-quality stainless steel are free of lead, acid, alkali, corrosion, and harmful substances, and will not pollute tap water. This is very important for drinking water in the kitchen; and the stainless steel faucet does not need electroplating, it is extremely difficult to rust, and the hardness and toughness are more than twice higher than that of brass products, so it is very convenient to clean. However, due to the high difficulty of stainless steel processing, the current high-quality stainless steel faucets are usually relatively expensive.
Third, pay attention to whether the length of the tap can clean the sinks on both sides.
When buying, pay attention to the length of the basin and the faucet sprayer. If it is a double sink, pay attention to whether the length of the faucet can clean the sinks on both sides when rotating. Most kitchen faucets can rotate the body of the faucet left and right, which is convenient for cleaning to all corners of the sink.
What kind of faucet is good?
Is it expensive? Seriously, price is one aspect of course. We must also consider these:
1. Faucet Cartridge
Cartridge is the heart of the faucet. According to the material, there are ceramic cartridges, stainless steel cartridges, and brass cartridges available on the market.
After the faucet has been used a long time, there may be a dripping problem. We may think the handle is not closed tightly or the handle is loose. In fact, the problem is often not the handle, but the cartridge hidden inside is beginning to age. The quality of the cartridge is a decisive factor affecting the service life of the faucet.
Ceramic cartridge is currently the mainstream cartridge on the market. It is wear-resistant, high-temperature and aging resistant, not easy to rust, good sealing, long service life, and less water pollution. Stainless steel and brass cartridges are also good choices. But bad brass and stainless steel materials are easy to rust, accumulate scale and affect water quality.
The Aquacubic cartridge is of higher quality than ordinary cartridges. It is made of ceramic and is integrally sealed with glue. It can adapt to various environments to ensure that the faucet will never leak under any severe conditions. It is durable, energy-saving and environmentally friendly.
2. Surface Coating
The surface coating is related to the corrosion resistance of the surface of the faucet.
In this regard, the electroplating corrosion resistance test in China is divided into 1-10 grades, and the tenth grade is the best. Aquacubic faucet can pass 24-hour acid salt spray test. The surface treatment reaches the highest tenth level. The surface should be smooth, and there is no uneven rough feeling. And it is corrosion resistant.
Of course, if you want a better coating, you can choose anti-fingerprint brushed nickel finish. Through a special process, the surface of the faucet is not easily stained with fingerprint. The best choice for cleaning enthusiasts.
3. Main Material
The main material is the main part of the water flowing through.
If the main material is not good, it will affect the quality of the water we drink! Two materials, brass and stainless steel, are more common on the market. It is worth noting that 59 brass is relatively high-quality brass material. Inferior brass may cause water pollution. Aquacubic faucet body uses 59 brass. In order to let customers use healthy water, we use low lead brass to minimize the precipitation of harmful substances in waterways and remove harmful heavy metals. Drink healthily and rest assured.
