How to Choose Your Bathroom Plumbing Fixtures

bathroom plumbing fixtures

Struggling with bathroom plumbing fixtures?
Choosing bathroom fixtures could be exciting at first, however you could easily end up getting stuck between aesthetics and practicality. There is no point in having the best functional fixtures if it visually looks horrible. Aesthetics and functionality need to work together so that your bathroom can have a pleasant atmosphere. You want your bathroom to be a place where you can relax after a hard day of work or before a busy day in the office. Choosing the right plumbing fixtures for your bathroom will ensure both a pleasant and functional atmosphere.

First step to choosing your bathroom plumbing fixtures
First things first, you need to decide what look and style you want for your bathroom. Once you have that sorted you can move on to selecting a style of sink, toilet, shower and tub that best suits your style and comfort. This seems simple, right? However, having to choose the right fixture could end up becoming a confusing and extensive search. There are so many types to choose from. In addition you must be able to find the bathroom plumbing fixture that not only fits your design scheme but also fits in with the size of your bathroom. Choose what is best for you by visiting a bathroom showroom where you can see and try everything.

Sink fixtures

  • Vessel sinks are a very popular type. It is made to look like a large bowl. They have a modern look to them. However, they do take up quite a bit of space. These types of sinks would not be suited for a small bathroom. You should also keep in mind that these sinks tend to be a bit harder to clean than traditional ones and are prone to chipping or damage.
  • Top-mounted sinks: These fit nicely in a cutout area on the top of a counter.
  • Under-mount sinks: these sinks have an uninterrupted surface between the top of the counter and the sink.
  • Pedestal sinks: a very visually attractive choice. They are attached to the floor via a pedestal. If you have a small bathroom this could be the one for you.
  • Wall-mounted sinks: these are the best types if you are extremely limited for space. They come in a variety of colors, styles and designs that will coordinate with your bathroom plumbing fixtures. These sinks allow for a storage place underneath it.

Shower fixtures:

  • Body sprayers: if you are looking for a shower that can massage your body or create a beautiful and relaxing mist you have found the one.
  • Rain shower heads: These resemble the feeling of standing under a waterfall or heavy rain.
  • Wall-mount unit: This is the basic fixture. These are probably the most practical sprayers that you can get.
  • Hand-held unit: These have a very functional feature. You can remove the shower head for cleaning hard-to-reach spots.

You don’t necessarily have to limit yourself to only one of these bathroom plumbing fixtures. You could have more than one type at the same time. Dual fixtures allow for more than one person to enjoy the shower at the same time. These features are becoming more cost effective and more people are starting to use them in standard bathrooms. In addition to the sinks and shower fixtures you should also look at different cabinets, mirrors, toilets, towel racks, and tiles.
