When your creative bug is biting, and you feel the urge to remodel your bathroom, there are several things to consider. From the floors to the ceilings, there are many things you can do to revamp your bathroom. However, one of the least common factors considered in such a remodel are the fixtures. Whether it is the shower head, tub handles, sink handles, or any other fixture, you shouldn’t overlook these small plumbing details. These little things will make a big difference in how much you enjoy your bathroom. Consider putting these fixtures at the top of your bathroom to-do list:
Relaxing in the shower after a hard day’s work is a great way to relax and unwind. A new and/or updated shower head can rejuvenate the energy in your bathroom. One example can be installing a hand-held shower head. WIth a tangle free, extendable hose, your shower can offer several stream options and the mobility you crave. You can also try installing a ceiling-mounted rain shower for that natural feel in your bathroom. Another popular option is an LED shower head with temperature reading capabilities, bringing an extra light source and ambiance into the bathroom area.
Today’s faucets focus on water conservation and simplicity. They are often used to add a touch of sophistication to their design. For example, you can install a single bathtub handle that controls both the temperature of the water with one device, simplifying the design. You can also have these fixtures mounted on the wall instead of on the side of the tub, leaving the tub design to speak for itself. Speaking of tub design, installing a stand-alone tub can become your new statement piece in your bathroom.
Out with the old and in with the….older? Once obsolete brass and gold fixtures are now trending in bathrooms with modern designs. These fixtures can bring in a luxurious feel in a simple way. In a similar way, finishes such as matte and satin add sophistication and style as well as the functionality of thwarting fingerprints. Industrial bathroom fixtures are also becoming more popular. From metal finishes to wood accents, this style is bold and unique, sure to impress your guests as soon as they walk in the door.
Though your toilet may not seem like an obvious point of style in your bathroom, recent trends are focusing more on the toilet and its fixtures. With the modernization of most appliances in our homes, it is no surprise that the toilet has been upgraded to meet the needs of modern bathrooms. The fixtures on these toilets can range from bold colored piping to a lack thereof. “Smart toilets” are becoming more popular, hiding most of the piping and fixtures of the toilet, giving a sleeker look to a once unsightly and unimpressive toilet.
Bathroom fixtures may seem like small items, but small changes in your bathroom remodel can make all the difference in the space. Whether you want to draw more attention to them or the opposite, technology and style trends have options for even the pickiest and most unique homeowners. From shower heads, sinks, and toilets, to towel rods, shower curtains, and storage areas, bathrooms are no longer lacking in style for the sake of functionality. Make your bathroom the new focal point of your home!
