Fixtures to consider in the BathroomDespite being one of the smaller rooms of your home, it is one of the most frequently used. Remodeling this space can bring a great deal of satisfaction. Did you know that just updating your hardware and handles can already enhance your bathroom’s appearance? To start, create a budget and decide if you will be remodeling the bathroom in its entirety or a few of these fixtures at a time:
Sinks and Counter Tops – There is an endless supply of sink and features on the market. Before purchasing a sink, you must first evaluate your space and measure to see if your selected style is a good choice. Sinks come in two styles, a complete sink system with integrated kitchen equipment, or a sink with a three-hole setup allowing you to choose your own equipment. The sink that allows you to choose your own fixtures is a popular choice, as customizing the sink fixtures adds charm and style to the bathroom. Prior to purchasing this type of sink, be sure to obtain the equipment first, so that you can check the fixture for proper fit.
Countertops are made from many materials. Choices like granite and marble create an upscale look to your bathroom. Synthetic options are also a popular choice due to their price. Synthetic options pour less than natural stone countertops and are less likely to stain. Mounting Options: Sinks can be mounted several different ways, depending on your countertop or vanity style. The first mounting style is known as a drop-in. The sink is placed into a properly sized hole so that the sink sits flush against the surface. An under-mount, on the other hand, is installed under the countertops surface, so that the bowl of the sink starts beneath the surface. Other popular choices include one-piece sinks, vessels, and wall-mounted. One-piece sinks are frequently made out of porcelain and come with a matching pedestal base. Vessels have a unique appearance. They are made to look like a bowl or vessel sitting on a countertop. These vessel sinks often come with their own vanity and integrated faucet system. Wall-mounted sinks work well in small bathrooms or 1/2 bathrooms. These types of sinks sometimes require an additional water supply and drain lines installed so that they can be properly hidden behind the wall. Generally, the type of sink you choose will determine the material it is made of. Common examples of sink materials include glass, marble, copper, vitreous porcelain. Faucets and other bathroom fixtures – Simply changing your bathrooms faucets and hardware can provide a quick facelift, without a great deal of expense. Faucet fixtures come with an array of finishes including chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, steel, brass, brushed nickel, and many other options. This finish makes a powerful statement on the decor of your bathroom. Bathtubs, Showers, Toilets – Proper installation of a new bathtub is vital.
