The bathroom would also normally include a
A bathroom is a room that may have different functions depending on the cultural context. In the most literal sense nike air max ireland , the word bathroom means a room with a bath . Because the traditional bathtubs have partly made way for modern showers, including steam showers, the more general definition is a room where one bathes . There can be just a shower, just a bathtub or both; and often both plumbing fixtures are combined in the bathtub. The room may also contain a sink, often called a wash basin or hand basin and often a lavatory . In the United States, bathroom commonly means a room containing a lavatory . In other countries this is usually called the toilet or alternatively water closet , lavatory or loo . The word bathroom is also used in the U.S. for a public toilet. In the United States, bathrooms are generally categorized as a full bathroom , containing four plumbing fixtures: bathtub, shower, toilet, and sink; half (12) bath (or powder room ) containing just a toilet and sink; and 34 bath containing toilet, sink, and shower nike air max tn cheap , although the terms vary from market to market. In some U.S. markets, a toilet, sink, and shower are considered a full bath . This lack of a single, universal definition commonly results in discrepancies between advertised and actual number of baths in real estate listings. An additional complication is that there are currently two ways of notating the number of bathrooms in a dwelling. One method is to count a half bathroom as .5 and then add this to the number of full bathrooms (e.g., 2.5 baths would mean 2 full baths and 1 half bath). The other, newer method is to put the number of full bathrooms to the left side of the decimal point and to put the number of half bathrooms to the right of the decimal point (e.g., 2.1 would mean 2 full baths and 1 half bath; 3.2 would mean 3 full baths and 2 half baths). Types of bathrooms A bathroom directly connected to a bedroom is often called an en suite bathroom. Its use is primarily intended for the occupants of that bedroom only. In French the term en suite literally means a following , in this case referring to the bathroom being part of the bedroom to which it is attached. A bathroom adjacent to or directly connected to a master bedroom in a private home is generally called a master bathroom, unless it is shared by other bedrooms or is the only bathroom in the home. An en suite bathroom attached to two bedrooms is sometimes referred to as a Jack and Jill bathroom . Travelers often get confused regarding different types of bathrooms when booking rooms in hotels and bed and breakfast accommodation. Some common questions relate to en suite, private and shared bathrooms (sometimes called facilities ). Both en suite and private bathrooms are for the exclusive use of the occupants of a particular bedroom. An en suite bathroom is accessed from within the bedroom, however, whereas a private bathroom is accessed from outside the bedroom but is normally adjacent or near to the bedroom. A shared bathroom is a bathroom outside of any bedroom that is shared between guests staying in two or more separate bedrooms. Although the word bathroom may be used, this room may have a shower stall instead of a bathtub. The bathroom would also normally include a toilet as well as washing facilities. Design considerations The design of a bathroom must account for the use of both hot and cold water nike air max thea womens sale , in significant quantities, for cleaning the human body. The water is also used for moving solid and liquid human waste to a sewer or septic tank. Water may be splashed on the walls and floor, and hot humid air may cause condensation on cold surfaces. From a decorating point of view the bathroom presents a challenge. Ceiling, wall and floor materials and coverings should be impervious to water and readily and easily cleaned. The use of ceramic or glass, as well as smooth plastic materials, is common in bathrooms for their ease of cleaning. Such surfaces are often cold to the touch, however, and so water resistant bath mats or even bathroom carpets may be used on the floor to make the room more comfortable. Alternatively, the floor may be heated, possibly by strategically placing heater conduits close to the surface. Electrical appliances, such as lights, heaters, and heated towel rails, generally need to be installed as fixtures nike air max 95 , with permanent connections rather than plugs and sockets. This minimizes the risk of electric shock. Ground fault circuit interruptor electrical sockets can reduce the risk of electric shock, and are required for bathroom socket installation by electrical and building codes in the United States and Canada. In some countries, such as the United Kingdom, only special sockets suitable for electric shavers are permitted in bathrooms, and are labelled as such. History of bathrooms Although it was not with hygiene in mind, the first records for the use of baths date back as far as 3000 B.C. At this time water had a strong religious value, being seen as a purifying element for both body and soul, and so it was not uncommon for people to be required to cleanse themselves before entering a sacred area. Baths are recorded as part of a village or town life throughout this period, with a split between steam baths in Europe and America and cold baths in Asia. Communal baths were erected in a distinctly separate area to the living quarters of the village, with a view to preventing evil spirits from entering the domestic quarters of a commune. Not all ancient baths were in the style of the large pools that often come to mind when one imagines the Roman baths; the earliest surviving bathtub dates back to 1700 B.C, and hails from the Palace of Knossos in Crete.[2] What is remarkable about this tub is not only the similarity with the baths of today, but also the way in which the plumbing works surrounding it differ so little from modern models.
