Sanitary ware made of ceramics, with good care, is ready to serve for at least 20 years. Ceramic products can be decorated with various ornaments and patterns in different styles.
In addition, the sinks can be made of stone, cast iron, steel or glass. And even from a tree. Thus, the wishes of all consumers, not just a single group, are taken into account.
