Types of Bathroom Fixtures
Beautiful and Functional Bathroom Furnishings
While choosing the wall and floor finishes and plumbing fixtures might not be an architect’s or interior designer’s main focus when designing a bathroom, bathroom fixtures and furnishings add the finishing touches to the space and make it functional for everyday use. Bathroom fixtures include faucets for sinks and bathtubs, as well as shower heads and mixers. Other items that fit into the bathroom fixtures and furnishings category include accessories, such as towel bars, towel rings, soap and lotion dispensers, tissue holders, and robe hooks. Bathroom furnishings include shelving, storage units, and benches and stools.
Bathroom fixtures are typically made of metal that is rust-resistant, and can be finished in a variety of tones to fit any bathroom decor. Popular finishes for bath fixtures include nickel, copper, bronze, and chrome. These finishes can be shiny and smooth or brushed for a more matte effect. The styles of bathroom fixtures also greatly vary, and can be minimal and modern or designed to have a more traditional or old-world look. Typically, a designer coordinates the specifications for all fixtures and chooses a collection of products from the same manufacturer that coordinate and will give the bathroom a consistent look.
