It’s no secret that our house needs an upgrade every now and then. However, sometimes the area that needs the most improvement often gets the least one. This is usually the case for our bathrooms which can be odd considering starting and ending the day wouldn’t be complete without using our bathroom for personal hygiene activities as well as relaxation. Give your bathroom some love by knowing how to pick out accessories that compliments your bathroom aesthetics as well as you daily needs.

Check Out 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.

Check Out Water-Saving Options
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. It will improve your house quality and rating if you decide to go green with your bathroom fixtures. Water saving shower heads like Aerial Shower and Aerial Pulse that promotes comfortable and enjoyable experience while reducing water consumption. 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.

Choose Space Saving Bathroom Fixtures That Is Functional But Stylish
If you have used a sink and tub that are streamlined, then use faucets and shower heads that would go along with it to get a modern look like a goose neck faucet. If your fixtures are embellished, then you can get porcelain-brass combos for a traditional look. Don’t just pick what looks nice, think about how everything in your bathroom looks and works together.

Don’t Forget About Safety
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? It doesn’t matter if you live alone, or with small children, elderly folks, or loved ones with disability, having these safety items in your bathroom is something you’ll never regret. Since slips and falls often occurs due to the room’s constantly wet nature, going ahead and installing all these will prove to be advantageous, probably not now, but definitely when you need it most and least expect it to.

A wall-mounted safety bar for your shower or next to the toilet is a great idea to add stability and safety in your bathroom. In Fullsun, we provide several different series of high quality Louis Grab Bars which are highly durable.

Ensure Quality Of The Products
Buying online can save you some time as compared to going down to a showroom, but check that websites are trusted and that products sold are authentic. A safer alternative would be to purchase directly from websites of manufacturers or authorized dealers. Remember to check for the warranty of your products. It also pays to learn about the materials of the fixtures. Depending on how you maintain your fixtures, most material should last you quite a while.

Reasons Why You Should Have A Shower Seat In Your Bathroom

You’d be surprised how much of a game changer a shower seat can be and how much you've been missing out the whole time you didn't have one.

Have you ever thought of having a sitting area in your bathroom? Ever heard of other people using a shower seat before? Or does this all sound odd to you because it never occurred to you that this is a thing? Well then maybe it’s time you consider renovating your bathroom to create more space for a shower seat or if you already have enough space then simply install one. You’d be surprised how much of a game changer a shower seat can be and how much you’ve been missing out the whole time you didn’t have one. If you need more convincing, here are the benefits that will make you get a shower seat for your bathroom right away.

Helps Improve Safety
Instead of sitting on the edge of the tub or using the toilet as a chair while in the bathroom, why not install a foldable shower seat? At Fullsun, we have various shower seats for you to choose from. For example,  Louis Shower Seat with backrest that is made of heavy duty reinforce aluminum pipe internally and covered with nylon. This way you can sit comfortably without any risk of slipping.

If you have a combined bathtub and shower area, equip your shower with a hand held or adjustable shower head. You can maneuver it where you want it, minimizing your movement in the shower. Also, you can use it while sitting safely on your bath seat or bench.

Makes People With Mobility Issues Feel More Independent And Feel Empowered
Do you have a family member who can’t stand for too long or can’t stand at all? Although you can always help them in the bathroom, you can bet that they still want to handle it on their own as much as possible. Having a sturdy shower seat in there is one way to do that. It allows them to take care of themselves while in the bathroom and not have to ask for help every time so they won’t feel like they’re bothering anyone.

Improves The Quality Of Your Life
Elderly people or those with disability already rely a lot on their family since their movements are limited. They may not voice it out but the sense of needing and becoming dependent on other people, even family, have a negative effect on them emotionally and mentally. Helping them have a bit of independence can boost their morale and make them feel happier and comfortable at the same time.

Shower and bath time are one of the most relaxing things that anyone can do. It can also help loosen up sore muscles and relieve aching joints. However, it’s no question that the bathroom is also one of the places where slips and falls often occurs. This is especially true for elderly folks or those who have mobility issues. So making the shower area be more accessible and safe for them is a huge help.

Allows You To Relax
Having a spa-like bathroom is a common trend with homeowners. Remodeling a bathroom that allows you to have enough space for a shower seat is an excellent opportunity to create that spa environment in your house. This is not only beneficial for you but can also impress guests that will stay over. People don’t think of the shower as relaxing because you have to stand up especially if you don’t have a tub and shower combination. It’s difficult to relax while you’re standing. But if you use a shower seat, the shower can be an even better place than a tub to unwind and loosen up. What’s more ladies (and some men!) if you want to shave your legs, it will be much easier when you’re already sitting. Especially when you don’t have to worry about slipping off.

Reasons Why Better Sanitary Ware Design Is Crucial In Hospitals

Choosing sanitary ware and fittings for hospital use can literally be a life or death decision and is a responsible decision to make.

If most household take a considerable amount of time when designing their bathrooms, it’s even more crucial for hospitals especially when it comes to sanitary wares and fittings. This is because choosing sanitary ware and fittings for hospital use can literally be a life or death decision and is a responsible decision to make. The need to deliver water and remove waste efficiently, reduce cross infection and cater for the physical limitations of patients demands a lot from every sanitary installation.

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. To better understand why this is such a big deal, here are some factors that would explain this further.

To Avoid Spreading Bacteria And Viruses
Did you know that splashing of water when taps run into clinical basins causes spreading of bacteria and viruses into the air, onto the face, clothing and the surrounding area, such as hospital beds? This may seem like a simple issue but sometimes it can also be the most difficult to solve. While a good product design is important, the material and the overall execution of the hospital sanitary facility play a big role too in effectively reducing spread of infection.

Ease Of Cleaning Means Increased Hygiene
To ensure cleanliness all the time, regular cleaning is required for hospital bathrooms especially in wards where a number of patients usually share one bathroom. But this becomes difficult when the sanitary wares and fittings aren’t designed with ease of cleaning in mind. In Fullsun, we provide several different series of high quality Louis Grab Bars which are not only highly durable, but are also made of heavy duty reinforce aluminum pipe internally and covered with nylon that has antibacterial features to make it more difficult for bacteria to cling to the surface.

Aside from that our TOTO Tornado Flush toilet allows you to flush both the rim and bowl in an innovative way where it project three powerful jets of water from inside the bowl so you won’t have to flush twice and clean manually. Moreover, we also have TOTO toilet bowl’s rimless design that helps ensure that dirt and bacteria aren’t able to collect in the first place.

To Prevent Slips And Falls
Grab bars increase accessibility and safety for people with a variety of disabilities or mobility difficulties. Louis Grab Bars, for that matter, can come in handy as it provides extra stability, minimizing the tendency to slip on any wet surface. Installing them near the toilet allows them to have something to hold on to when sitting or getting off the seat too. This is also why Louis Shower Seat is being used in hospitals so that patients who can’t stand too long can shower while sitting comfortably without any risk of slipping.

To Better Accommodate Elderly, Disabled, And/Or Wheelchair Bound Patientsf
While some patients are okay with their family or hospital staffs assisting them whenever they need to use the bathroom, there are some who like to be as independent as possible. Fullsun’s, TOTO Wall Hung LW137Y/ LW136HFY hand wash basin with half pedestal is designed to enable better grip for wheelchair user. Even our shower set comes with exposed shower mixer with indicator of high visibility, hand shower; shower hose with anti-twist features and sliding rail is great for those with mobility difficulties to maneuver easily themselves in the shower while minimizing their movement to avoid accidents.

To Enable Hand Free Usage
People try to avoid touching anything in the bathroom, especially in public ones, to avoid cross contamination. This i s why TOTO sensor taps and TOTO sensor flush valve are perfect for hospitals. Because they don’t just conserve water but they also enable hand-free usage.

If you are interested in any of our products or have any inquiries, please feel free to stop by our studio. We have invested in this studio to allow our customers to have a look and feel into the possible sanitary products available in the market, including our past projects that we have set-up in various hospitals.

Top 5 Tips To Make Your Bathroom More Elderly Friendly

Top 5 Tips To Make Your Bathroom More Elderly FriendlyShower and bath time are one of the most relaxing things that you can do. However, it’s no question that the bathroom is also one of the places where slips and falls often occurs, especially for our elders who have difficulty in moving around. To keep that from happening, here are some tips that can help make your bathroom a lot safer for them.

1. Install Grab Bars
Consider installing 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. It’s also a good idea to install them near the toilet for them to have something to hold on to when sitting or getting off the seat. In Fullsun, we provide several different series of high quality Louis Grab Bars which are highly durable.

2. Take Off Shower Stall Threshold
If you live with any family member who has difficulty in moving around, like an elder suffering from arthritis, it best that you bathroom doesn’t pose any risk of entrapment or hindrances like a shower stall threshold. This way they can easily come in and get out on their own. If you’re still on the process of building the bathroom, the best way to design it would be to come up with a layout that will easily accommodate a wheelchair to avoid future difficulties.

3. Avoid Locking The Door Or Opt For Bathroom Doors That Opens Out
Sure it would be uncomfortable for the rest of the family members if the bathroom can’t be locked. But if you live with an elder that has a problem with balance or easily get dizzy, getting in or out in case of emergency will be difficult with locked doors. A good compromise in this situation would be to have bathroom doors that open out to the room.

4. Opt For Adjustable Or Handheld Shower head
If you have a combined bathtub and shower area, equip your shower with a handheld or adjustable shower head. This way even family members of have mobility difficulties can maneuver easily, minimizing their movement in the shower. Also, they can use it while sitting safely on a Louis Shower Seat with backrest that is made of heavy duty reinforce aluminum pipe internally and covered with nylon. This way they can sit comfortably without any risk of slipping.

5. Make The Commode The Right Size
A commode or toilet chair is a portable toilet on a chair like frame with a hinged flap concealing a chamber pot designed to be placed at the bedside of a disabled individual with limited activity that may not be able to easily travel to the bathroom. So if you’re using this you should make sure that it’s not difficult for your elderly loved one to sit on. Older adults often begin to have mobility issues relating to arthritis and other conditions, or problems with hips, knees, or back. Stooping low to sit on many standard-model 15- to 17-inch commodes can be a challenge. To remedy that, you can purchase GEWC141A-a toilet lift available at Fullsun. This powered elevating toilet seat lift is designed for use by individuals with lower extremity or mobility disabilities or arthritis. This is works by gently lowering and raising (slant or vertical position selectable) the user on and off the toilet in a way that mimics the natural body motion.
