design and materials, types of doors

As for materials - pan made of cast iron, steel, ceramic, artificial marble and acrylic.

Recently less buyers choose cast iron or steel. First they create a lot of noise.Secondly iron is slowly heated and enamel with the steel pan obluschivaetsya over time.

Ceramic trays undoubtedly beautiful, but like any piece of pottery - brittle.

marble bathroom is a classic, the only question in choosing - the price.
