Understanding Bathroom Wastes

Chances are you don’t really care where your water goes once you let the plug out of your bath or basin in the bathroom, but when you are designing a new bathroom these are important things to take into consideration.

For the Basin

When you think of wastes you have no interest, but when you are in the process of designing a new bathroom, the bathroom wastes you choose have an impact on your overall bathroom design.

Basically there are two choices, the traditional plug and chain design which works beautifully in traditional and cottage style bathrooms and then there are the Klik-Klak wastes, these are push designs which are easy to use.

Square Slotted Basin Waste

The push design requires you push down on the plug to seal the unit, enabling you to fill your basin with water and when you want to let the water out, you just give the plug a simple push again. This is ideal for the modern bathroom giving your bathroom a sophisticated and functional element.

For the Baths

When it comes to bath wastes you have more than the plug to consider, there is also the overflow outlet. Obviously you want to ensure your overflow outlet and your plug match in design. There is of course the traditional plug and chain design and then there are the push plug designs from Klik-Klak with matching overflow outlets that ensure your plug and outlet match.

The advantage is that there are some really stylish choices, my favourite for modern bathrooms has to be the square design with the square overflow outlet. These are ideal when you have chosen square taps and products for your new modern bathroom, allowing everything to work together and complement the space.

Take Your Design into Consideration

When choosing wastes you have to take your overall bathroom design into consideration. Think about the items you have chosen, have you got a glass basin, a roll top bath or a modern basin? What will look best with these items?

When choosing always ensure that your bath and basin wastes are matching in functionality and design. If you have chosen push plug designs for your basin, make sure you carry it over to your bath. This is so important, it reduces the risk of your bathroom being out of sync and ensures that everything complements each other and blends in beautifully with your overall bathroom design.
