Bathroom fixtures are all about the faucets for sinks, showers and tubs, towel racks, rings and bars, toilet paper holders, soap dispensers and more. A few tips can help you make these decisions easier and faster. Choose Safe and Environmentally Friendly Faucets. Bathroom faucets include those designed for sinks and showers. Both have three things that are important to understand before setting off to your local hardware store or shopping online. Install Only Certified Lead Free Faucets. Unknowingly, you could purchase faucets that contain lead or other harmful elements when buying online from manufacturers outside the U.S. that don't adhere to certification manufacturing principles. Faucets sold in U.S. stores like Lowe's, Home Depot and other hardware stores as well as online stores must sell certified faucets.
Fixture Metals and Finishes. It's best to stick with the same type of finish for all the bathroom hardware. Most people also choose to go with the same style. These two factors ensure your bathroom has a designer look and a cohesive design. However, some people prefer a more eclectic look and often go with a mix of styles in the same finish. This is a purely personal choice. If you decide this is your personal style, be sure to keep the style mix balanced. Otherwise, the eclectic look will elude your design leaving only a hodgepodge look that doesn't work. Popular Fixture/Hardware Metal and Finishes. Most metal finishes used in bathroom fixtures are available in brushed, satin, polished, antiqued and satin. The metal finishes can be high-end expensive solid metals or plated metals known as PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating of thin layers of metals, such as aluminum, chromium, titanium, and other metals. Copper: Copper is used in many hand-crafted sinks and tubs. The hammered finish is a popular style for this metal. If you want a unique metal that's also antimicrobial and resists mildew and mold, common problems with bathroom, this is it.
For smaller bathrooms with tighter quarters, sometimes a smaller multipurpose vanity or a custom vanity with open shelves can make the room feel bigger. Another way to get the most out of a smaller bathroom is to choose an open vanity without cabinets. Mounting cabinets to the wall as opposed to having them under the sink will give your eye some breathing room, create easier foot traffic and potentially keep the doorway from being blocked by cabinet doors. Once you know how you want the space to function, you need to figure out the look and feel you want your bathroom to have. Use your cabinets and vanities to drive home the design, whether modern or rustic. Floating your cabinets is ideal in small bathrooms or as a way to make your room feel more open. Use vessel sinks that sit on top of your bathroom vanity to create a more luxurious look.
