Vessel Faucets Styles. A vessel facet is typically taller than traditional sink faucets. These are usually in the waterfall or spout style. Some vessel sinks come with a faucet designed just for that style of sink. This eliminate the need to match a faucet to the sink design. Shower and Tub Faucets. It's best to match the tub/shower faucet with the sink faucet. Tub and shower knobs and controls should be mounted 33" measured from the floor. The controls should be accessible from outside and inside the tub/shower, so be sure you're choosing hardware that can fulfill this requirement. Showerhead Styles. If you prefer a special showerhead, such as a rain showerhead, then stick with the same finish so it will match the rest of the tub hardware. The showerhead should clear the tallest person's height, so be sure you measure before you buy and install it.
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).
Conserve Water by Purchasing WaterSense Products. You may also want to purchase a WaterSense label faucet. This type of faucet reduces 30% or more of water usage in a bathroom. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) home faucets account from more than 15% of the water used inside a US home. This translates into over a trillion gallons of water per year for the nation. Look for this label to conserve your water use. Overall Hardware Style Scheme. The style of your home design will determine how you intend to decorate your bathroom. This will in turn dictate the style of bathroom fixtures that will go best with your creation. The goal is to design a cohesive bathroom décor. When you select the appropriate hardware/fixtures that follow the style of your interior then you can be assured of a beautiful bathroom design that looks as though it belongs together.
