A Guide to Choosing New Bathroom Fixtures

When you are redesigning your bathroom, one of the hardest things to do is figure out which bathroom fixtures to buy. You want to find fixtures that are both efficient that look good as well. If you are struggling with what kind of fixtures to buy, here’s a handy guide. 

Bathroom Updates

Look for Energy Efficient

Everyone wants to have a beautiful bathroom, but you also want to choose fixtures that are energy efficient. For example, you need to choose a showerhead with great pressure, but also that has an EPA WaterSense certification. There are showerheads that are more energy-efficient than others. For example, rain showerheads are popular for people who want a greener bathroom, but if you like a lot of water pressure, this showerhead isn’t for you. If you have a lot of people with different heights, we suggest a sliding bar showerhead. 

A Self-Cleaning Toilet?

As with showerheads, there are lots of energy efficient, low flow toilets. Take a look at those, and see which toilets are right for you. You also have a choice between round toilets or elongated toilets. There are also self-cleaning toilets, which have become very popular, so if you never want to clean your toilet again, this might be your toilet. 

Sinks and Faucets

There are four different kinds of sinks to consider. Undermount sinks are great for bathrooms, especially kids’ bathrooms because they are easy to clean. If you want sophisticated design, you may want to get a top-mount sink. Vessel sinks sit over the countertop and provide an artsy hint in your bathroom. If you want a minimalist look, think about getting a wall-mounted sink. Choose the sink first, then choose faucets to go with the sink.
