The faucet is the focal point of the bathroom, which is why many people believe it’s important to find the right one. If you are upgrading your bathroom fixtures, it’s important to find a plumber who is qualified to install them safely, cost-effectively, and in a reasonable amount of time. Learn more about your options for bathroom fixtures in the following article.

Inspiration

Look through magazines, blogs, and Pinterest for photographs of bathrooms you find most attractive and can show to your plumber. Pay special attention to the style and material of the plumbing fixtures, as well as how the rest of the bathroom compliments the look of the fixture. Plumbers can help you learn more about different options

Style

The most economical option is the drop-in sink, but these sinks can be difficult to clean because they have a lip where the sink meets the countertop. Under-mount sinks, on the other hand, are easy to clean and can be installed underneath a countertop. Vessel sinks tend to be the more expensive option; these sinks look like bowls that rest on the countertop, and create a distinct look in the bathroom. Another option is the integral sink, where the sink and countertop are one piece. If you have a small bathroom, consider a freestanding pedestal sink. You can also find bathroom furniture that integrates vanity and sink.

Material

Vitreous china is a popular choice for bathroom fixtures because it is inexpensive and easy to maintain. If you have a taste for modern bathroom fixtures, a bowl made from stainless steel, copper, or some other metal is a great choice. But keep in mind that metal is more expensive and requires more maintenance. Glass is a high-end choice that elevates the style of the bathroom, but can be expensive and fragile. Made from marble and polyester resin, cultured marble is another popular choice for high-end, stylish bathrooms. Cultured marble can scratch, so this is not an ideal choice if durability is important to you.
