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).
The Pantone "color palettes" that are released each year can give you good ideas for bathroom color, "and I love them," says Cy. "Next year they'll come out with a whole new set and those will be out." Instead, says Cy, "choose what you like." But he's got a few caveats. "Peach looks like a bad '80s hotel room," he says. "We're not over it enough to laugh at it yet." The light in the bathroom should also influence your decision. "Really dark colors can be fabulous, but you have to make sure the bathroom gets enough natural light, or put in some other lighting, if you want to use them. Otherwise, the effect is just dark, and you need to be able to see to shave and put on makeup." The idea of looking at yourself in the mirror with these colors framing you brings up another issue. "Even when it's just extra color, you shouldn't put anything in your bathroom that will make you look ghastly in the morning, like lime green — a mistake I've made before — and yellow, unless it's a real warm shade." "More than anything," says Cy, "remember that it's your house. The color you choose should express who you are -- unless it's peach.
