Here’s a list of bathroom fixtures to consider while remodeling

Bathroom Sinks

Sinks serve as a focal point of the bathroom. Bathroom sinks and faucets are the most used fixtures with daily use, so functionality should be on top of the list. There are different types of sinks, from vessel sinks that are ideally used for powder rooms, under-mounted sinks, pedestal sinks, and glass sinks. Sourcing your next bathroom sink will be a task as there are tons of options. It all boils down to the style you want to achieve, mainly modern, traditional, or rustic/eclectic vibe as well if you want it under-mounted or wall mounted.

Faucets

Used mainly for water efficiency as its daily use for handwashing, brushing teeth, washing face and a lot more happen in the bathroom sink/vanity. A well-functioning faucet is a necessity. Can be fastened to the lavatory deck, integrated, or even mounted on the wall or floor. I recommend buying a sturdy and functional faucet to last longer. Even on a simple bathroom update, a faucet change can freshen up the bathroom look and complete the space. Consider the countertop space you have as well as the sinks you have when buying your faucet to avoid splashing.

Toilets

Standard toilets are 14-15 inches high (height) some are taller than are 16-18 inches high. You can choose the toilet depending on your preference. Toilets come from a range of different colors and designs. Some toilets are budget-friendly and there are toilets that will cost you thousands of dollars. Japanese toilets with those features are getting popular nowadays.

Bathtubs

This is a permanent bathroom fixture that needs to be reliable because of daily use. If you plan to replace an old one or add this to the bathroom space, make sure it is right for the space and your needs. Whether you want a tub or a shower, choosing the right one for your need is important. Also, the top consideration will be if it will fit your bathroom and the installation that is required. There are different bathtubs to choose from drop-in, undermount, three-wall alcove, freestanding, corner tub, walk-in, and clawfoot. Depending on the experience you want to do with your tub affects your choice. If you just want to soak in the tub or want a jetted -whirlpool experience with water jets that target near major muscle groups for a massage experience or a jetted air with tiny holes for gentle massage. It can also be a combination of whirlpools and air tubs.

Showerheads or shower faucets

Greatly important as this is a major fixture that is used daily at home, you need to consider the height of everyone at home for showerheads. This can be a quick update for any bathroom if you replace your shower faucet. You need to consider the shower arm, shower head, the valve or rough-in valve, valve trim in choosing your new shower faucet. You can replace the shower faucet or the entire shower system. Experienced remodelers choose from spray patterns and rain showers. You need to consider water flow rate and the scald guard which is the setting that balances the mix of hot and cold water.

Summary

Planning is obviously important when choosing the bathroom fixtures, their sizes, and layout of the bathroom. If you are not a handyman or contractor and not sure on how to tackle the bathroom update or renovation. It’s best to hire a professional contractor to be worry-free.
