There are many great designs around for bathrooms and toilets where space in not an issue. But not all of us have the luxury of an enormous space in which to accommodate these fantastic products. Those of us who live in small apartments or houses often have to deal with a lack of floor space, which requires some degree of creative thinking when it comes to configuring our rooms.rnrnBathrooms and toilets in particular can be tricky and the configuration is often dictated by the plumbing outlets to a certain extent. But here at Freshome, we are always on the lookout for innovative and creative ways to transform small homes into practical, workable and enjoyable spaces.

W+W from Spanish bathroom manufacturer Roca is a rather unusual design with a number of unique features and benefits. Designed by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, W+W actually stands for Washbasin + Watercloset and that is exactly what it is – a washbasin that has been merged with a toilet to create one singular and innovative new product for the bathroom.

The W+W unit combines functionality and water-saving benefits with an attractive design. The unit is ideal for homes, offices, or for use in public bathrooms.Roca’s commitment to sustainability and environmental matters comes to the fore in this design. Featuring Roca’s “water-reuse technology”, the unit reuses wastewater from the washbasin to fill the toilet cistern, thereby reducing total water usage in the bathroom by up to 25% in comparison to a standard 6/3-litre toilet. This eco-friendly, space-saving design led to Roca receiving the ISH 09 Design Plus award in recognition of the innovation that went into creating this design.We would love to hear what you think about this washbasin toilet combo.
