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.
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.
Where to Install, to install a wall mounted toilet paper holder, the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) advises installing 26" from the floor along a wall beside the toilet. Make sure the hardware you choose will fit in that space. Grab Bars for Toilets, Showers, and Bathtubs. The best grab bar is metal, although many substantial bars are made of plastic. Choose options that color-coordinate with your toilet and shower space if you are going with a plastic option. You can use the ADA (American Disabilities Act) guidelines for disabled individuals as a guide for your home bathroom to help determine where and how to install these aids. The size(s) you choose will depend on the measurements for installation in your home.
