Tips and Information on Decorating Bathrooms

The joy of innovation – Bathrooms by QS Supplies

Interbreeding ideas is one of the pillars of innovation in today’s bathroom designs and engenders a very important and distinct question of salience: is the innovation at hand really useful? Inviting a corollary question: what aspect of the consumer’s need does it satisfy? The answer would lead us either towards the functional or the fulfillment of the aesthetic quotient.

The product development team at QS Supplies is driven by a quest for innovation that would result in products which exhibit, features that would challenge conventional aesthetics , and enhance functionality: the enthralling results owe a great deal to the burning desire for remodeling of existing conventional items and adding features to obtain more user friendly results; thus innovation is inherent at the heart of every leap towards a breakthrough which holds the potential to transform our bathroom décor and bring more lucidity to our interaction with any chosen element inside our bathroom or during our bathroom visit.

The Barrels

Barrels are associated with storage, capacious by nature and capable of instilling a sense of security. Its modest looking figure would appear prosaic to the oil industry and mundane with a hint of sentience attached in the wine making enterprises. As a vanity unit the barrel would seem an odd choice at first but is able to assimilate itself along with the other elements and assumes a natural posture bringing an unexpected dimension to the contemporary sense of bathroom visuals. Its appeal would be more endearing to those who seek to challenge the conventional norm along with homeowners faced with space crunch and yet desire a vanity unit that would easily fit in small bathrooms.

The Recycle Tyre basin

Many momentous outcomes have been found to be rooted in simple ideas often leading to spectacular transformations where the ordinary no longer resembles the banal and instead of being ignored becomes the focus of all attention. The tyre basin is a similar advancement in the area of wash basins literally bringing the wheel before our eyes to both inspire and awaken our appreciation for one of man’s greatest invention. Besides meticulous functionality the unconventional choice of aesthetics is certain to invite immediate attention and cement the basin’s position as the focal point inside your bathroom.

By “not reinventing the wheel,” which has had the most profound impact on human society, we have covered the entire spectrum of human motivation which both figuratively and literally carried on wheels. From the poor farmers in sub-saharan Africa who aspire to buy a bicycle so as to reach the wholesale market faster to sell their yields, to the upper echelons of the working class in London aspiring to get a set of good wheels and not forgetting all Top Gear fans across the world would bear testament to this fact. So, welcome the wheel at the grooming station.

The Chandelier Shower

We are accustomed to chandeliers in their usual grandiose spraying subtle luminous patterns across the room ricocheting off the ceiling towards the floor and surrounding walls. The idea was to import the ambience produced by a chandelier and blend the soothing visuals with a gentle drizzle, which can be received with varying forces suited to user taste. You are now empowered to create a more artistic and enchanting ambience inside your bathroom. The blend proposes and represents a confluence of medieval charm with modern technology and is a step towards radical assimilation of ideas that were hitherto only imagined.

The Towel Rail with a IPAD Holder

We are very guarded when it comes to our time and are often pressed for it owing to the various demands from multiple quarters. Our rhythm and flow often comes to halt when we are forced to take a toilet break but there are times when we often have to continue working despite nature’s urgent call! Speaking on mobile phones or working on your touch screen tablets while you are on your commode inside your WC is commonplace and exposes these gadgets to the risk of falling in undesirable places. Such accidents can be avoided with the use of a “Tablet-cum-Phone holder” that has been fabricated to assume a fixed position on your towel radiators appearing as an appendage of the existing fixture and extending to your natural seated position ensuring a comfortable browsing or phone session along with the safety of your important data on your multimedia devices.

The Smartphone Tap

Listening to music is perhaps one of the preferred forms of recreation for most people and there are many amongst us who would want that experience to continue while in the bath. It is not a matter for debate that our phones are smart enough to carry all the information pertinent to work and entertainment, including music, however, an element of risk is tied to carrying the phone near the bath without a secured location. And it is this precise vacuum that the “song cradle” gadget is designed to fill. This ingenious device is more than a safe location for your smart phone providing it an output connection with speakers to amplify the sound suited to bathroom acoustics, thus overcoming the inherent limitation of insufficient output which severely compromises music experience on inbuilt phone speakers.

The Digital Toilet Paper

Toilet paper holders have served the purpose of dispensing toilet paper in their traditional forms and have in recent years been allowed to inhabit more appealing avatars. The new formulations have seen shades of humour and elegance, assuming the need for both was immensely felt in the climate of stress and speed, a moment dipped in humour would greatly ease a lot of burden! But, there is also the practical side to life in that we have seen a lot of embarrassing situations occur due to negligence and having no toilet paper in the dispenser would certainly become an embarrassing affair and worse if no refurbishing stock is to be found in your home. The Digital-TP-dispenser is an attractive proposition for the forgetful and dreamy as this gadget ensures no unintentional and unnecessary wastage of toilet paper by rendering a fixed no of sheets at a time which can be prefigured into its system. Further, it auto-computes the dispensing capacity and displays the amount of toilet paper left and gives sufficient warning if the stock is about to exhaust, thus keeping you informed about one of your most important personal commodities in the washroom.

The Log Basin

Consider it an extension of your water mains, which does sound rather unattractive and at first glance seems a little simplistic, but its form is sure to grow on you with repeat encounters. Its solid and encapsulating form covers plumbing work and piping joints beneath its escutcheon like appearance which is fashioned to match contemporary décor laying special emphasis on the abstract theme. The “log-basin” is envisaged to combat space scarcity with its wall mounted design and concurrently offers a wide-mouthed spacious bowl for a comfortable wash and would be welcomed into small bathrooms

The Transparent

From radical fusion to the charms of the translucent—the rectangular dimensions—of the frontal see through basin could have been transparent on all sides modeled along the lines of a fish tank, but that would have undone the novelty of translucence. This basin subliminally draws our attention to the lucid quality of water and harnesses its eloquent nurturing by engaging our vision through its transparent front.
