Custom-made Artificial Stone Bathtubs

The bathroom is a special place in the house where we can be alone with our thoughts, relax and rest from the bustle of the outside world.

Quite often, the interior design of bathrooms is not given enough attention, as is done for the living room or bedroom. At the same time, the bathroom is a place of solitude, and it should be no less comfortable than the rest of the rooms of your home.

A feature of the design of bathrooms is the need to combine beauty with convenience and hygiene. In our realities, the bathroom space does not allow you to expand much, and designers have to come up with different ways of placing household items in a limited space so that the aesthetic component does not suffer. It is also important to consider that the bathroom should be functional and easy to clean.

Even the most ordinary, typical bathrooms will look very unusual if you decide to make a custom-made bathroom on an individual project. The main problem of repairing bathrooms is the incompatibility of standard solutions with the parameters of the room, when the factory options are simply not suitable in size.
