Origin Bathroom Collection from Solo Building Supplies

The psychology of desire around kitchens is relatively straightforward, interest in good home cooking has soared, and television, the internet and lifestyle magazines expose us constantly to aspirational kitchens.

They may be open plan, urban loft style or shabby chic retro country but they have replaced the sitting room as the hub of the house. If families ever congregate anywhere in these splintered times they tend to do so at mealtimes in the kitchen.

Bathrooms, on the other hand, take a little more explaining. It’s true to say that thirty years ago, they too could become a hub, albeit unintentionally, because most houses had just one, containing a rudimentary basin, bath and lavatory, and arguments often ensued as family members, literally foaming at the mouth, fought over the sink. Something has changed though, the most private and functional of rooms has gone public, the bathroom is as much a statement of taste and aspiration as the kitchen, and a sanctuary from the hurly-burly of 21st century living.
