Brass: While brass also has antimicrobial properties, it isn't as fast acting against as copper in killing germs and bacteria. Brass doesn't corrode easily and is a valuable recyclable metal. Many brass bathroom fixtures are fashioned from recycled brass. The highly polished look of the 80s brass bathroom fixtures has given over to an antiqued finish. Stainless steel: The antimicrobial property of stainless steel is much less than brass and copper. This metal is a great look for a contemporary or contemporary bathroom. It is a harder metal than brass and is often combined with nickel for bathroom faucets. Bronze: ORB (Oil Rubbed Bronze) is ageless and very popular. It can go with almost any bathroom style. Nickel: The fifth common element on Earth with 65% of mine nickel used to make stainless steel and 9% used for plating. Nickel bathroom fixtures come in polished, satin, or brushed finishes. Chrome: The chrome is a finish applied to a metal or plastic. The most popular choice is polished chrome. Porcelain and vitreous china: Porcelain is used in many bathroom fixtures and most have a vitreous china coating to give it a sheen finish. Many of these are used in combination with other materials like a chrome faucet set with porcelain handles.
Traditional, Contemporary, and Transitional Styles. Traditional is a popular choice for bathroom fixtures since they will go with most home designs. Transitional and contemporary styles better fit bathrooms of these specific architectural home styles. Transitional is a blend of traditional and contemporary and has simple curved lines that flow in an elegant visual movement. Matching Fixtures. Some homeowners don't like the uniform look of matched hardware while others would never consider mixing styles. Most interior designers prefer the uniform look that matching fixtures give so that the focal point of the room design isn't interrupted. For homeowners, this is considered a personal choice; however, the design rule of thumb is regardless of style, you want to use the same metal and finish for all hardware (fixtures).
Bathroom furniture and plumbing fixtures and fittings are the main event in the bathroom, and therefore it's essential to get these right from the word ‘go'. Planning the perfect superyacht bathroom, if you can dream it, you can create it. First of all, in order to realise the particular style and feel of that dream bathroom, it's a good idea to research the ideas displayed across the brochures and showrooms of the owner's favourite interior designers, as well as taking a look at the bathrooms installed in other luxury homes and superyachts. Following this, create a priority list to ensure the essential bathroom furniture and accessories are not forgotten. Budget. It's important when redesigning anything to create a budget and stick to it: Bathrooms and spas can be inexpensive and yet still have the luxury look and feel about them. The budget will need to be realistic, as there is no point in setting a £1,000 limit when the bathtub itself costs £999.
