In predominantly warm countries such as Spain, bathrooms tend to get a lot more use than in colder countries, with many people having a shower or bath more than once a day. Quite a few Spanish households, especially those with private swimming pools, also have an outside shower to rinse off chlorine or beach sand. This is good news for bathroom fitters in Torrevieja, and the builders merchants and plumbing suppliers have come a long way in the past few years due to the increase in demand for bespoke bathrooms. The range of bathroom designs and materials is vast, but some can come at a premium depending on a few factors.
There are a range of standard bath, shower, basin and toilet designs available at most builders merchants and large homeware retailers such as Leroy Merlin, but the term bespoke really means a personal design customised to suit the individuals needs. This can mean special fixtures and fittings, specific tiling or a complete bespoke bathroom of your dreams, designed from scratch. Bespoke bathrooms are a popular choice with those that require disability aids such as a complete wet-room with adjustable shower seating and strategically placed handrails, or for total luxury, an entire bathroom designed around your every need that includes all the latest mod cons and gadgets.
There is a good choice of bathroom fitters in Torrevieja and Orihuela Costa, and the local Facebook buy, sell and info groups are a great source of advertising and asking questions. Most local radio stations are another good source of information, but wherever you search for a builder or bathroom fitter to carry out work, take your time, ask questions regarding their qualifications and experience as well as proof of said qualifications. Most will be happy to supply this information and will even arrange with past clients for you to view the work done in their homes. If they seem unwilling to divulge this information, look elsewhere.
