Plumbing fixtures are usually the chief accent of an attractive bathroom. You can get creative with all kinds of different style shower heads, sinks, faucets, and bathtubs to give your bathroom the details that will elevate its look. Depending on which aesthetic you’re going for (traditional, modern, vintage) you can mix and match different materials to go well with your existing theme.
Choosing a shower head is much more complicated than going with trend: you should first consider water pressure, body coverage, your budget, and the types of showers you enjoy. Someone looking for a restorative experience might install jets and have several shower heads, while someone just looking for a quick cleansing shower might want a more powerful shower head. Some people prefer sliding bar shower heads, while others might get more use out of handhelds.
Rain Shower Heads
Rain shower heads are all the rage, for the way in which they mimic the effect of an outside shower. They surprisingly use less water because most of them feature an air-injection technology that makes the flow of water feel stronger. Some people install it in the ceiling, while others install it off a long arm attached to the wall. This shower head has to be properly installed so that the water is perfectly distributed throughout the whole shower head.
Dual Shower Heads
For those who spend an exorbitant amount of time in the bathroom relaxing, dual shower heads might be the solution. Whether side by side or on opposite walls from each other, you can install different types of shower heads for a dynamic experience.
Maybe you’re not into taking showers at all, and baths are more your thing. In that case, you might want to invest in a really nice bathtub to make your daily experience a soothing one. There are standard tubs, whirlpool tubs, or combination tubs which, again, depend on the type of bathing experience you’re going for.
These luxurious bathtubs contain jets that are positioned at ideal spots to massage certain muscle groups. Think of a jacuzzi in your bathroom; you’ll get the same general relaxation and benefits from this tub. It may be difficult to find a stylish whirlpool tub option, but there are certainly ways to dress up the dull white.
Alcove tubs are typically nestled between three walls and are great at creating more space in the bathroom. People usually opt for alcove tubs when they still want the option of showering, since it’s easier to do without getting water everywhere. However, you don’t have the option of switching its location like you do with freestanding tubs.
If you’re looking for something more visually striking, you might want to invest in something like a clawfoot tub or washtub in stylish copper. These options look simple and stylish, and can be a great focal point for your bathroom. However, they may be less practical if you’re set on function over style.
Sinks & Faucets
Sinks and faucets can be a great way to make a statement in the bathroom. Faucets are available in a wide variety of styles and finishes, and you can get really creative with your bathroom sink and highlight (or hide) the countertop.
Vessel sinks sit on top of the counter and are regarded by some as the more comfortable option. This type of sink can highlight other aspects of your bathroom and there are countless colors, textures, and finishes to choose from.
Antique faucets work beautifully in a more traditional-style or modern vintage bathroom. Brass and bronze are increasingly popular for the way they create contrast and pop against darker colors. Many are combining these colors with black for a vivid and elegant look.
