There are many reasons why homeowners purchase sanitary ware like wash basins, toilet bowls and taps. Some wish to replace the old ones that they have, or maybe their bathroom is new. Whatever the reason may be, sanitary ware is an essential part of every bathroom which means its demand is great. Due to this demand, there is an overwhelmingly large amount of options available. To help you with your purchase, here are some factors that should be considered when choosing sanitary ware.
In most product buying guides, budget is one of the key factors to consider when purchasing home appliance products. Many homeowners who are looking to buy sanitary ware have different budgets for varying reasons such as income level and lifestyle. Therefore, it is advisable to finalize the budget first before starting to search for reputable home appliance brands that offer sanitary ware.
Color and Design
Sanitary ware products are available in different colours and designs. This is so that they cater to different customers’ wants or needs. Generally, any sanitary ware you buy should match the overall mood and decor of your bathroom. Although neutral colours like white are popular, it’s best that you consider which colours match the doors, tiles, and other fixtures in your bathroom.
One thing you should know about sanitary ware is that its function can only be appreciated if it fits the need of its owner. Therefore, the personal needs of you and your family members should be heavily considered. With this in mind, make sure that products you’ll use daily like toilet bowls are comfortable, durable, and easy to clean. This is vital for products used by more than one person.
Your lifestyle will determine how often a certain type of sanitary ware will be used. If the product is heavily used, then it should be durable enough to withstand heavy usage. Otherwise, the buyer can opt for more affordable alternatives. Take note though that local hardware stores only stock a limited range of bathroom products. On the other hand, a bathroom supply store in Singapore can provide a larger array of products for a customer’s different needs. Thus, consider this a reason to engage a specialized bathroom supply store instead.

Sanitary ware can be quite an investment. This is why it is best to purchase products that have good features, are reliable, and are comfortable.

Not only that, any shower set you buy should be able to last long.
One shower set you can consider buying is the Fidelis-Ligero Series M87 Series Elevated Shower/Bath Mixer (Chrome) FL-M87A.

Most brands manufacture different sizes of sanitary ware to cater to the different specifications of their customer’s bathrooms. Since every bathroom is different, a tip for buying from a bathroom supply store online is to first measure the area where you want to install the fixture and obtain the dimensions of the product itself. This is to ensure that the product will function properly and that there will be enough space for you to move around.

Sanitary ware is usually installed in the bathroom which is one of the most frequently used areas in the home. As such, the risk of them sustaining damage is great. You should therefore invest in sanitary ware that is durable and will not break easily. Try to search among the best-selling bathroom products in Singapore as they can be indicative of the product’s quality. Low-quality sanitary ware will make you spend more on repairs compared to high-quality products.
Since washbasins are a frequently sanitary ware product, it is important to invest in a quality piece that will last. The Rubine QTRO 60M Countertop Rectangular Wash Basin is an excellent choice. This is made out of vitreous china coating which makes it tougher, denser, and shinier than most basins. On top of that, it is water-repellent and corrosion-resistant.
Ease of Cleaning
Rubine Piz Fora PF-106S10 1 Piece Toilet Bowl
The sanitary ware you buy should be designed in a way that it can easily be cleaned. There should be no places which are difficult to reach especially those where dirt and other bacteria can accumulate. Ease of cleaning is an important consideration, as products that are hard to clean could pose significant health risks to you and other members of your household. Among the reasons why rimless toilet bowls are popular in Singapore is that their rim can easily be cleaned. This is because, unlike a traditional toilet bowl that uses water jets, rimless toilet bowls release water from a diverter.
The Rubine Piz Fora PF-106S10 1 Piece Toilet Bowl is a good example of sanitary ware that is easy to clean. Its pan and cistern are composed of vitreous china while its seat is built with urea. Thus, it is highly resistant to bacterial accumulation. Not only that, it is a washdown toilet bowl which means it uses gravity for more powerful flushing.
One indicator of the quality and durability of a sanitary ware product is the warranty provided by the manufacturer. It is advisable to opt for sanitary ware that offers a warranty for at least one year. During the warranty period, any damage to the sanitary ware should be covered through repairs or replacement at no additional cost.
