A bathroom suite is what makes up the lion's share of your bathroom. It includes the toilet, basin, bath and shower and, in some cases, bathroom suites can include bathroom accessories.
At Victorian Plumbing we sell three varieties of suite to complete your bathroom, cloakroom or small bathroom. Deciding on which type of suite you need is simply a case of the space you are working with.
Bathroom suites have the full luxury you need in your main bathroom; space is no object, these bathrooms can be roomy, decadent sets with full toilet, cisterns and pedestal basins.
A cloakroom suite is ideal for compact bathrooms where intelligent use of space and maximising floor space is important. A toilet and basin are the key pieces to creating a functional and stylish bathroom. This suite is perfect for en suites, guest bathrooms and second bathrooms.
Small bathroom suites are again focused on using and maximising minimal space - this can include compact suites, close coupled toilets, wall hung units and even compact shower baths.
4 Piece Suite: These suites consist of four parts, most commonly a pedestal, basin, toilet pan and cistern. A 4 piece bathroom suite allows you to get a complete bathroom quickly, stylishly and cost effectively, with lots of design options and combinations.
5 Piece Suite: A 5 piece suite is ideal for main bathrooms, as they include all of the items within a 4 piece and a bathtub on top, so with one purchase you can gain a complete master bathroom.
Some bathroom suites come with a vanity unit, this will typically take the place of a pedestal, so the basin will sit within the vanity unit. This is a great way of adding storage space to your bathroom as well as style.
The two main suite styles for bathrooms are modern (contemporary) and classic (traditional). While there are alternatives, customisable options and bespoke styles available, you can broadly decide on what kind of bathroom you want from these 2 categories.
A traditional bathroom suite will lean towards beautiful, elegant designs, recessed details and Victorian-inspired style, while modern suites will utilise geometric designs, unusual styles and typically have more space-saving features available.
The most important parts you'll need to add to add to your suite are the taps - bath taps, basin taps and waste/overflow systems. These are another opportunity to customise your bathroom in your own unique way and give it a bespoke feel, so choose something that suits your bathroom motif.
If you're confused by the use of 1th and 2th then your not alone. Although at first glance it does look like a mathematical equation it quite simple. It basically means how many tap holes (th) your bathroom suite has.
1 tap hole (1th) suites will require a tap that fits into one hole in your basin for example a mono tap, while 2 tap hole suites require taps with 2 connections.
