Top 4 Features Your Bathroom Accessories And Fittings Should Have

Before, many bathroom accessories were finished in chrome. The problem with chrome is that although it offers a highly polished aesthetic,

If you’re thinking of renovating your bathroom and are currently looking for the best accessories and fittings for your bathroom, this article is for you! The question is, what really makes the best sanitary wares and fitting out there? Is it the design? Brand? Price tag? Well, actually if you try to go and shop for them yourself, you’ll quickly realize that those things hardly matter compared to these following features. Sure the ones that you soon will find that suits these criteria may usually come from popular brands and are priced higher. But what we’re trying to emphasize here is the quality product and not the maker or the price tag.

1. Water Savings
Did you know that a faucet leaking 10 drips every minute wastes 526 gallons of water per year? Lack of water is the greatest challenge humanity faces in many parts of the world. It’s best to conserve water as much as we can before it’s too late. Check the faucet you plan on buying to see how much volume of water it will use in a minute. There are shower heads like Aerial Shower and Aerial Pulse that promotes comfortable and enjoyable shower experience while reducing water consumption. Choose the one that most suitable for your needs as well as your bathroom’s overall appeal that you want to achieve. Touch less electronic faucets like TOTO Self Power technology are fantastic too! These sensor taps’ accurate hand detection means only the minimum necessary amount of water is used, while located inside the unit is the second technology, a generator that harnesses the energy from water flowing through the tap to make the micro-sensor energy-self-sufficient.

2. Thermostatic Capabilities
Do you know what’s worse than running out of water in the middle of showering? It’s getting scalded by a sudden rush of hot water! This could happen when someone else in the house flushes the toilet or uses a faucet, the cold water get redirected there and with less cold water “tempering” your hot water you end up with much hotter water than you’d like. Prevent this from happening again by installing high-efficiency toilets should help alleviate this problem by reducing the amount of water needed to flush them. Another fix involves installing a thermostatic mixing valve in your showers. This device will modulate the hot- and cold-water flows, whatever the usage by other fixtures, to keep the temperature of the shower consistently safe as well as comfortable.

3. Ease Of Cleaning
At first, you may not think this will be an issue but wait until you’re down on all fours and have been scrubbing surfaces for hours and you’ll think otherwise! It would have been convenient if all your sanitary items, especially toilets, in your bathroom have a self-cleaning feature. TOTO toilet bowl’s rimless design helps ensure that dirt and bacteria aren’t able to collect in the first place. Not to mention that CeFiONtect is a glaze applied to all TOTO ceramic products, including our toilets, leaving them with a long-lasting finish that prevents the build-up of mold, limescale and waste matter.

4. Surface Protection
Before, many bathroom accessories were finished in chrome. The problem with chrome is that although it offers a highly polished aesthetic, there is a possibility that it would flake and peel. Nowadays, the material of choice is stainless steel as it doesn’t rust, flake, peel or dull, and it is strong and easy to maintain and clean. Stainless steel bathroom accessories come in two main finishes – polished (shiny) and brushed (matt). Another major benefit of stainless steel is that it’s the best material if you’re trying to go green in your bathroom. Many homeowners want to be environmentally conscious but they don’t want to sacrifice style or functionality either. Stainless steel accessories offer you the ideal way of doing this as it is 100 percent recyclable. Unlike glass and paper, as long as you don’t add any other products into the stainless steel mix, it can be melted down and used again as is.

Things In Your Bathroom That You Wouldn’t Regret Going High-Tech

Things In Your Bathroom That You Wouldn’t Regret Going High-Tech

When going for the high-technology bathroom, it’s easy to go overboard that it no longer feel like a bathroom you’d actually enjoy. But when done right and in moderation, it makes a bathroom look really modern but it also helps people relax better and can be convenient most of the time. Here are some ideas if you’re leaning towards the tech trend.

Underfloor Heating
If you’re like most people who go straight to the bathroom after waking up, stepping on cold floors especially in the bathroom is not a good way to wake up. Although wearing bathroom slippers should solve this, there are people who are too half-asleep to even bother with it so they go barefoot. So adding necessary warmth with underfloor heating can be a wonderful upgrade. They are also quite reasonable in price and can be easily installed before laying your tile. Controlled by a simple thermostat on the wall, they allow you the pleasure of a warm bathroom and even help to reduce moisture.

Communication
If you hate missing an important call or like to really take your time in the bathroom while browsing the internet, staying connected is possible. Many hotels have telephones in the bathroom for these reasons and so can you. Aside from that, you just have to ensure good home WiFi signal that reaches the bathroom.

Entertainment
Many homeowners nowadays like to have entertainment even in their bathrooms, because why not. Besides, a bathroom is no longer a place for utility but a place to relax as well. If you’ve also been contemplating about this, waterproof television and shower iPod dock are now widely available in the market.

Upgrade Your Sanitary Wares And Fittings
It is important to give the choice of sanitary ware lots of consideration – not only must you be sure to choose items that will be used but it’s also essential that they help make your shower and bath experience even better.

1. Bath
You now have the time to include in luxury every day. TOTO’s wide range of bathtubs is specially designed to maximize the little time you have for yourself. Our Bathtubs not only cleanse your body but also entice you to soak in supreme comfort and tranquility.

2. Faucets
Fullsun’s TOTO EcoCap offer flow rate of as little as 3.6 liters per minute. It allows you to wash your hands without guilt because it significantly reduces water consumption. This is made possible by mixing air with water which saves water without any loss in stream volume. Sometimes, people worry that while sensor taps may save water, it may also increase their energy usage. But with TOTO Self Power technology, accurate hand detection means only the minimum necessary amount of water is used, while located inside the unit is the second technology, a generator that harnesses the energy from water flowing through the tap to make the micro-sensor energy-self-sufficient.

3. Toilet
Have you heard about “aerosol effect” of germs when a toilet is flushed? This is when bacteria get projected into the air and surrounding surfaces whenever you flush the toilet. This is why it’s important to practice shutting the lid when flushing to prevent spreading germs all over the place. Having said that, if your toothbrush is too close to the toilet, you risk contaminating it in case you forgot to close the toilet lid before flushing. Better yet, if you or other family members keeps forgetting to shut the lid before flushing, why not switch to a toilet that does it automatically for you? Fullsun’s Neorest Toilet automatically opens and closes every use so you wouldn’t have to worry about spreading the germs and contaminating everything.

Know The Secret To The Perfect Bathroom Sink

While choosing a bathroom sink, two major factors have to be put into consideration when it comes to the material that you decide to go for.

Your bathroom may be out of other people’s sight but that doesn’t mean you get can get away with carelessly buying just any sanitary wares and fittings. It also needs creative input and thorough attention as you would give your bedroom or living room. This is because aesthetics is not the only goal here but to also build a comfortable and functional bathroom. Here are some tips that will help your choose the best basin for your bathroom that suits your needs.

Work With What You Have
Sure you can completely redo your entire sink area if you want to if you’re set on a specific kind of sink. But reconstructing the whole space for that would be impractical. So it would be better to evaluate your space and work within the limitations that you have.

The Available Space
When choosing sanitary wares and fittings for your bathroom, you also have to consider the available space. A sink can either take all the space or fit just right depending on the type of sink you decide to choose. If you have limited space, wall mount, freestanding or console sink would be best. All of them keeps the room from looking cramped because it free up a lot of floor space although you’ll have to deal with limited storage underneath them. But if you have abundant space to work with then counter mount sink and vanity top sink or even a double vanity won’t be a problem.

Know Your Style
Are you trying to go for a specific theme for your bathroom? If that’s the case, you have to figure out the style that you like best so that you can choose a sink that goes well with that. Be it rustic or classic theme, Fullsun’s TOTO products have several series that you can choose from. You can rest assured that all the products are not only high quality but also stylish.

Sink Holes
Sinks need faucets, and faucets come in different hole numbers: one hole, two holes or three holes. If you already have a certain faucet in mind, you can pick a sink to match it. If you don’t, choosing a sink with three holes is your safest bet — as it works with the greatest number of faucet options.

Know Your Options
Knowing what options you have will make it easier for you to decide because you can compare them with each other and learn which among them fits your requirements. Do not limit yourself with what the famous brands or the cheapest possible bathroom sink. There are wall mounted sinks, counter mounted sinks, floor mount or freestanding sink, console sink, and vanity top sinks. Know what kind fits well for your bathroom.

 

Shop Around
Even if you already have decided on the style and material that you like for your bathroom sink, it’s still best to see them in person. Sometimes, what we have in mind is not exactly how it is in reality. You may even realize that you don’t actually like what you’ve originally picked when you were just looking through sinks online once you’ve seen and touched them.

Consider Universal Design
Last but not least, think about universal design when you’re shopping sinks. While you may not need a handicap-accessible bathroom day to day, will anyone in your family? Would making your bathroom more accessible be an asset when it comes time to sell? One small step you can easily take is to install the sink as close to the front of your countertop or vanity as possible.

3. Silicone Based Wand Jet
Even though the wand already has a self-cleaning feature to ensure sanitation, the material itself is silicone-based which is extremely resistant to dirt.

4. 43 Degrees Angle Wand Jet Position
The washlet wand jet will extend at an angle, which keeps it from getting dirty. The soiled water will fall directly into the toilet bowl at angle of 43-53 degrees which keeps the jet clean.

Bathroom Trends You Don’t Wanna Dip Into

Trends are fun but when it comes to something permanent in your life and house, like your bathroom, you may wanna be careful in trying them out.

You don’t have to renovate every time a new bathroom trend or design comes out. But if your bathroom no longer look cohesive to the rest of your house or some of your sanitary wares have become way too old looking to look presentable then it’s probably time to upgrade. But if you’re planning on updating the look of your bathroom with a trend in mind, it doesn’t hurt to reconsider and research more.

Trends are fun but when it comes to something permanent in your life and house, like your bathroom, you may wanna be careful in trying them out. This is especially important if you don’t want to renovate often and plan on selling your house in the future.

Over sized Tubs
Over sized tubs looks and feels luxurious. But they’re also impractical in a lot of ways like the space they take up and amount of water it needs to be able to be filled. So, if you don’t really have a particular reason for wanting an over sized tub aside from following the trend, better stick with the standard-sized ones.

Even better if you go for a shower area instead, especially if you want to conserve water in the long run. Fullsun’s TOTO Technology offers two shower heads which are the Aerial Shower and Aerial Pulse that promotes comfortable and enjoyable experience while reducing water consumption. Aside from that, they also have faucets equipped with self-power feature and EcoCap that allows you to enjoy satisfying water stream while washing your hands while reducing water consumption.

White Everything
The all white look is definitely popular, especially for those who are trying to go for the minimalist look. But if you don’t have the time to clean regularly to keep every space as white, you’ll have a hard time maintaining the pristine look it’s supposed to have. So if you’re adamant on white walls, then try a different neutral color for the floors, other surfaces.

Tacky Colors
While the all-white look can be boring and hard to maintain, bold ones can be an eyesore after a while too! If you’re going for colors, at least don’t go for those that looks dated quickly like shades of mustard, salmon and avocado.

Copper Materials
Rose and copper finishes have been the thing for the past couple of years but that’s starting to decline lately. If you’re planning on remodeling around the end of the year, either look up the latest material trend or stick with those that stand the test of time.

Man Fut Tong Nursing Home: Showing Love To Our Elder In Light Of The Celebration Of Mooncake Festival Event

Go deep into your past moments of life, there always stands an elder who has helped you. Elders are diverse in wisdom and knowledge and can pass them on to

The population of elders are increasing worldwide. Citizens in each country gives different perspectives about what elders really mean to them and why elders are so much important to them. Importance of elders can be seen in two different views: Firstly, elders’ importance in the family and secondly, their importance in the society. In the families they play an important part as “great role models”. In the society they are very influential. Go deep into your past moments of life, there always stands an elder who has helped you. Elders are diverse in wisdom and knowledge and can pass them on to younger generations. So we should give prime respect towards them.

Although staying with their families would make them happier, there are some elders that have to stay at nursing homes due some instances. But we can still help make their stay at nursing homes feel better for them by visiting and doing some volunteer work.

Following TOTO’s mission of the continual commitment to research and development of new products for senior citizens and disabled people, our products are centered on comfort, safety and functionality. As caring for the disabled and elderly has become a key pillar of our company, Fullsun had expanded to set up a Heorte studio that showcases sanitary products to meet the needs of the elderly, disabled and patients in hospital. We’ve also done projects in a couple of nursing homes in order to provide quality sanitary wares and fittings for the benefit of elderly individuals.

Aside from that, we make it a point to give back to our society and uphold our moral responsibility to care for the disabled and elderly by participating in events like Man Fut Tong Nursing Home Event last September 14, 2018 for the Mooncake Festival Event.

It was such a heart-warming experience to make them happy even for a short while. Seeing their smiling faces during our visit while we distributed goodie bags, assisted them with their dinner and entertained them by singing to them while dressing up as 财神 (god of fortune) was worth all the time and effort.

Our company used to supply Man Fut Tong Nursing Home with sanitary wares too, so they already feel closer to our hearts. However, the fulfillment feels different when you interact with them and make them happy even with simple gestures like this.

Honoring and appreciating our elders and their contribution to the society doesn’t require grand deeds, all that matters is that it came from your heart. So go ahead and offer what you can. As the saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts.”

Expert Advice For Those Who Are About To Build Their Dream Bathroom

With all the pretty bathroom inspiration you can see online, especially on social media, it can be a challenge to choose the bathroom unit that will suitWith all the pretty bathroom inspiration you can see online, especially on social media, it can be a challenge to choose the bathroom unit that will suit you. This is because it can be easy to get swayed by the trendiest styles nowadays. But to make sure you’re choosing the right one for YOU, here are the things that you should consider when looking for bathroom units along with sanitary wares and fittings.

Identify Your Requirements
Before anything else, you need to determine how much space you have to work on, how much storage space you need, or if you need to have both bath and shower or you’re okay with just either of them. These kind of things needs to be set first and foremost to get the most suitable goods and layout for your bathroom.

Visit A Showroom
Once you’ve settled with the tip above, visit a showroom armed with a plan of your bathroom. It is important to have the sizes of your room, doors, windows and soil location. This way you’ll have a clearer idea on what you want for your bathroom.

Our Heorte Studio is our showroom that specially showcases sanitary products suitable for the elderly, disabled and even patients in hospitals. Through our years of providing sanitary products to various hospital projects, we have come to realize that information about sanitary care products for the elderly, disabled and patients are very limited, not only in Singapore but even in the region. So if you live with loved ones that require special care, you’ll find our showroom helpful.

Avoid Scheduling An Installation Date With Your Installer Before You Receive Your Goods
Make sure you have all the goods on hand before you schedule for installation. Otherwise you’ll be dealing with delays, stress and waste of time if the fitter is already on site but with nothing to work on.

Try To Check Upon Collections And Deliveries
To be 100% sure that the sanitary wares and fittings that you get are actually the ones you ordered and are in good condition. This should minimize the chances of conflict if any future damage or mishap was identified.

Be Aware Of Size Variations
Be aware that in the bathroom industry, baths, units, shower doors and trays can have quite a lot of size variants. For example, a 900mm shower door could have an adjustment from 865mm-885mm, this is to compensate for the use of using boarding, tiling or untrue walls. A 1700mm bath may could also be 1695mm or even 1705mm so if a product size is critical, communicate it right away.

Keep All Boxes Safe Until Installation Is Complete
This is for possible returns that you may have to do if you weren’t satisfied with the goods you received. Items usually needs to be returned in a re-sellable condition so keeping the boxes safe until everything is done is good practice.

What Every Wet Room Needs

Glass shower door is best for a wet room because it doesn’t just make your bathroom look modern and luxurious but it can make access in and out

Traditionally, bathrooms were only needed for personal hygiene and excretion. However, times have changed which also altered how people view and utilizes their bathroom nowadays. Today, bathrooms have become a place where people retreat to when they want to relax and soak their stress away. But what if you have very limited shower space? Can you still feel relaxed? The answer is yes, provided that you know how to maximize the space that you have. So here are some tips to make your shower area feel more spacious that it actually is while maintaining a luxurious vibe.

Try To Separate This Area From The Rest Of The Bathroom
Glass shower door is best for a wet room because it doesn’t just make your bathroom look modern and luxurious but it can make access in and out to the shower easier. Plus in can make the entire space look more spacious because it gives continuity in the visual sight line. So while it helps create a zone for your wet room, it doesn’t exactly cut off the space and make it look cramped! Bonus part is that it prevents anything else from getting wet which is exactly why you want to kind of section of this area.

Before Anything Else, Make Sure The Area Is Waterproofed
While you’re at it, get a professional to do the job for you. Sometimes DIY-ing can cost you more money than save if you’re not sure how to do it properly. Better seek a certified-waterproofing tradesman to ensure it gets done the right way in first go. Attempting to DIY may lead to a lot of trial and error which just waste materials and money you spent on them.

Don’t Forget About The Exhaust Fan
You don’t want to deal with molds and mildew smell when the walls and ceiling were just newly painted. Avoid this by using oil-based or mold-resistant bathroom paint to prevent mold from easily forming. Aside from that, installing an exhaust fan help with proper air circulation too which avoids moist from lingering and causing problems like molds later on.

Consider Additional Comfort And Safety Features
Yes the wet room is mainly for its function but it doesn’t hurt to add features that will make showering more comfortable and safe too, right? Sometimes, the showerhead can make or break your shower experience. Just head over to Fullsun’s product section and you’ll see different types of showerheads, from shower column, fixed shower head, hand shower to shower fittings. Fullsun’s TOTO Technology even offers two shower heads which are the Aerial Shower and Aerial Pulse that promotes comfortable and enjoyable experience while reducing water consumption. Choose the one that most suitable for your needs as well as your bathroom’s overall appeal that you want to achieve.

Moreover, since this is the wet room then you should consider things like grab bars too since they come in handy for young or old. When climbing out of the bath or shower, the grab bar provides extra stability, minimizing the tendency to slip on any wet surface. In Fullsun, we provide several different series of high quality Louis Grab Bars which are highly durable.

Pros And Cons Of Getting Freestanding Tubs

Since freestanding tubs are available in various styles which gives you a lot of flexibility in choosing one you really like aesthetically-wise

Bathtubs can be either a necessity or not depending on your needs. But we can’t deny that they can definitely elevate an entire bathrooms look and value not to mention comfort especially for those who like taking long warm baths after a long day at work. However, we also have to recognize the disadvantages that freestanding bathtubs may bring. To help you decide whether you should go for it or not, here are the pros and cons that you should consider.

Pros

Luxury Appeal
If you want your bathroom to look like hotel bathroom, putting a freestanding bathtub can definitely achieve it. That’s because freestanding tubs are often associated with spacious and luxurious baths.

Available In Various Styles
Freestanding bathtubs are great focal point for a bathroom because you can definitely find different styles and design of it from classic to unique shaped one. Because they’re not limited by the constraints of walls along the sides, so you can totally go for whatever shape you like. TOTO’s wide range of bathtubs is specially designed to maximize the little time you have for yourself. Our Bathtubs not only cleanse your body but also entice you to soak in supreme comfort and tranquility.

Easy To Install
Freestanding bathtubs basically just have to be placed on the space allocated for it in your bathroom and it’s done.

Cons

Price
Since freestanding tubs are available in various styles which gives you a lot of flexibility in choosing one you really like aesthetically-wise, its design intricacies can cost more though. So you’ll have to spend more compared to built-in tubs.

Larger Space Requirements
In contrast to a built-in tub, a freestanding tub usually requires open space on all four sides. (Otherwise, what’s the point?) Thus it takes up more space in a room that typically has precious little square footage. This can be a problem is you have small bathroom space.

Less Efficiency
Unlike built-in tubs where you can store toiletries and other bathroom essentials on the edges, freestanding ones doesn’t allow for that. So you may have to use a wheeled bathroom trolley to house your essentials which will make it easy for you to move it around the tub too for easy access.

Weight
Freestanding tubs are usually heavier than built-ins, which means they can require the expense and effort of reinforcing floors.

Now that you know all these, time to go shopping for your bathroom! Visit us at https://fullsun.com.sg/ to get some ideas or reach us at 62950966 and we’ll surely help you get quality sanitary wares and fittings as well as accessories for your bathroom!

Things You Should Not Keep On Your Countertop

Some things should be off limits your countertop. This is due to the humid environment that bathrooms generally have which doesn’t work well with most

We like having everything we need in the bathroom within our reach, which is probably why our countertops are always filled with a lot of stuff. However, you may wanna rethink that because apparently, some things should be off limits your countertop. This is due to the humid environment that bathrooms generally have which doesn’t work well with most of the items that we tend to use on our daily bathroom routine. Learn what those items are and start making adjustments on your entire grooming and cleaning habits.

Medication
You’re probably thinking, “Then, what is the medicine cabinet for?!” Well, heat and humidity, which the bathroom often is, can damage your medicines and reduce their effectivity. So it’s either you stay stubborn about keeping them in your medicine cabinet or take a safer route and store them in a cool and dry storage area.

Razor
It may be easier to keep your razor on your bathroom countertop, especially if you only use it in the shower or bath, but that may not be practical. The humidity in the bathroom makes the razor blades rusts and get dull quicker and easier than if you keep them in a cool and dry place.

Toothbrush
This one may not make sense at first. Besides, you brush your teeth by the sink so it’s more logical to have it nearby right? However, there’s something called “aerosol effect” of germs when a toilet is flushed. This is when bacteria get projected into the air and surrounding surfaces whenever you flush the toilet. This is why it’s important to practice shutting the lid when flushing to prevent spreading germs all over the place. Having said that, if your toothbrush is too close to the toilet, you risk contaminating it in case you forgot to close the toilet lid before flushing. Better yet, if you or other family members keeps forgetting to shut the lid before flushing, why not switch to a toilet that does it automatically for you? Fullsun’s Neorest Toilet automatically opens and closes every use so you wouldn’t have to worry about spreading the germs and contaminating everything.

But if you’re confident about being able to stick with the habit of closing the toilet lid before flushing, another toilet option for you would be TOTO Tornado Flush toilet. With it’s completely new flushing system that cleans and flushes both the rim and bowl in an innovative way where it project three powerful jets of water from inside the bowl, you won’t have to flush twice and clean manually every after use. Not to mention that CeFiONtect is a glaze applied to all TOTO ceramic products, including our toilets, leaving them with a long-lasting finish that prevents the build-up of mold, limescale and waste matter.

Makeup And Makeup Brushes
It’s okay to do your makeup in the bathroom, but you should always move your makeup and brushes in a cool and dry place when you’re done. Letting them sit on your countertop forever can breakdown your makeup and shorten its shelf life. As for brushes, it’s the same idea as for your toothbrushes. They becomes a perfect breeding place for bacteria and fungi because of the humidity.

Nail Polish
The heat of the bathroom will break down your nail polish and make it unusable. If you want your nail polish to last longer, you either keep them in room temperature or store them in your fridge because the cold prolongs their shelf life.

Extra Towels
Sure these are not on your countertop but they’re probably near it. Do you know why your towels smells funky when you haven’t even used them yet? That’s because they’re absorbing humidity in the bathroom without getting the chance to dry properly since they’re just stored in there. The solution? Just bring one in, dry yourself, then hang it to dry somewhere else. And keep your towels in a linen closet away from the bathroom.

Jewelry
Jewelry does not do well in a humid environment. Metals tarnish faster in humid environments than dry ones. So once you’re home and in your PJs, do yourself a favor and put your jewelry back into your jewelry box, which is ideally located in your bedroom.

Perfume
Humid environment causes perfumes to oxidize faster. So instead of them lasting for at least around two years, they’ll end up going bad in less time than that. So you might wanna start moving your perfumes in your bedroom instead.
