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.
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.
