Planning an upgrade to your plumbing fixtures is an exciting venture. Whether you are looking at fixtures as part of an overall remodel or just looking to replace pieces that are broken or outdated, you want to make a smart purchase that you will love for years to come.
It may seem like there are endless options for plumbing fixtures in all areas of the home, but that shouldn’t be reason to stress about your shopping decision. This quick guide can help you think intentionally about picking the right fixture for your home.
Choose Your Style
Exploring the range of options available also lets you explore your personal tastes and style. Traditional style fixtures typically are more curved and detailed with copper and bronze finishes. Modern style tends to focus on a sleeker design with chrome or brushed nickel finishes. While there are exceptions to every rule, finding the general style you prefer will help narrow down choices.
Consider Existing Decor
Along with focusing on the overall style that suits your tastes, you want to consider existing decor in the room you’re replacing fixtures. This includes the overall feel you seek throughout your home, as well as features surrounding the new fixture; counters, cabinets, appliances, and wall colors should all be considered.
Function and Design
Once you’ve settled on design components you desire, you want to choose a fixture that will work for regular use in your home. Ease of use and cleaning is important for areas that will get heavy use, and you’ll also want to think of who else will be using the fixtures, including children or visitors to your home.
