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.
Your show stopper area can be big or small, it's up to you. The good majority of this bathroom is done in pretty basic white tile, but they added a wow factor with this beautiful tile at the top. Again the colors in this bathroom are pretty neutral, but the focal point is definitely the back wall of this shower. I love the idea of going with a really fun tile on the floor of a bathroom and keeping the rest of the space neutral. I don't like to clean. I especially don't like to clean the tub and shower so when choosing tile for these very wet areas you will probably want to go with porcelain or ceramic tile since they are virtually maintenance free. (You will want to double check to see if they need to be sealed.) Tiles make from natural stone require more maintenance and do have to be sealed. They are definitely more pours so they tend to hold on to dirt and grim more. If you are wanting to add texture with stone, it may be a good idea to use it on the floor or in a less wet area. Lastly, glass tile is so pretty and makes a great wall or accent tile. It is super slippery, so it doesn't work well on the floor.
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.
