The ritual of washing  has not always been the most popular of pastimes. Throughout the ages societies have fallen in and out of love with the idea of sweet – smelling cleanliness. The Ancient Romans’ love of bathing, both in private and public baths, is well documented and more than a thousand years later numerous   medieval illustrations attest to bathing as a jolly, social and sometimes erotic activity with wooden tubs for two often depicted. Even when bathrooms began very slowly to be installed across Europe, most rich people still bathed in a tub in front of the fire, filled of hot water brought to the tub by someone else.

Today, all is very different!

A confortable bathroom is one where all the necessary accessories, from bottles and jars to bath and shower, have a place. There is no regulation that says you may not hang pictures in a bathroom.
