Sometimes the bathroom is the only place in the house where you can find some peace and quiet so it might as well be a beautiful space to relax. When it comes to bathroom fixtures, they may only be a small aspect of either a guest bathroom or master bathroom, but an important one nonetheless.
Although bathroom fixture choices are endless, you first need to consider your long-term intentions for the house. If this is your dream home, and we hope it is, then you should choose fixtures that not only reflect your style, but are durable and timeless with cutting-edge functionality.
First thing’s first, you need to choose a finish – whether it be gleaming gold or silver, brushed nickel or ebony. According to Houzz.com, metals with matte or satin finishes will be especially popular this year. Brushed stainless steel or brass faucets are overshadowing more traditional bright polished fixtures. With metal being a popular aesthetic of interior design for the past few years, you can use your fixtures to create a theme for your bathrooms.
Another look growing in popularity are white fixtures that showcase a clean, fresh look. When set against a vibrant backsplash, it’s guaranteed to make its own splash!
If you’re having a custom home built from the ground up, one of the areas you will want to splurge on is the shower. When it comes to shower fixtures, the only way to bath vertically is with multiple shower heads. Many showers are being built with an oversized rain shower head above as well as shower heads along the wall, so that you can enjoy the ultimate shower experience. While it won’t save on your water bill, it’s definitely worth it.
One of the latest trends in shower fixtures includes not only the rain shower head above but a separate hand-held showerhead that enables a more customizable shower.
While there are too many great brands to recommend, the majority of high end modern brands are more water efficient and come with features like integrated ceramic disks that diminish leak-causing build-up. Brands like Delta Vero, ROHL, and Maestrobath offer gorgeous sleek designs that will have you coveting your faucets more than your favorite piece of jewelry. When considering which type of faucet to go with, make sure to consider how easy it will be to keep clean.
