When designing your bathroom one of the important decisions that you need to make is the style of your bathroom basin. There are a selection available from those that have a full pedestal to those with a half pedestal and then there are those that fit into a vanity, on the counter and those that use bottle traps.
If you are unsure what a bottle trap is, check under your kitchen sink. Now don’t get a fright, the bottle traps available for bathroom designs are not ugly plastic traps that will ruin your overall design. The traps available for bathrooms are finished in chrome offering a minimalistic design for the modern bathroom.
These days it’s stylish to put your bottle traps on display, the advantage to this is that you maximise your space. You can place your basin on the wall, have a bottle trap below and plenty of space below that adding to the spaciousness of your design.
Bottle traps do offer advantages though, they are not only available to look elegant and sophisticated. These traps do what the name says, they trap debris that goes down your bathroom drain and the best thing is that they reduce the risk of blockages and unwanted smells.
Bottle traps are probably the most functional choice when installing a basin in the bathroom. You can clean them out with ease on a regular basis, all you need is a bucket to place under the trap, unscrew it and clean it out. You’ll find all the hair and debris that would have blocked the drains and it’s clean and ready to collect all the debris all over again.
With so many basins available on the market today that are ideal in finishing your bathroom to perfection, bottle traps are useful additions which help you add that sophisticated edge to your overall design.
The full pedestal bathroom basins are the more traditional design, they are the ones you used to see in all bathrooms. The half pedestals are stylish and offer more space, making it much easier to clean below them.
The bottle traps are used on your wall hung basins, vanity basins and many of your counter top basins. Leaving the trap to be seen by all who enter the bathroom may not be your first choice, but with a range of designs to blend in with your bathroom style and finished in chrome, they can look spectacular and really add that finished look to your bathroom.
