About Bathroom Fixtures

Everybody loves to have a bathroom that is really beautiful and also comfortable. But in order to achieve that level of perfection, you need to invest in a good set of bathroom fixtures for your bathroom.

Although the quality of a bathroom fixture is mostly about their functionality, that doesn’t take away the fact that people also want them to look good as well. That is why shopping for them is of such a huge concern for people who are renovating their homes. To be honest, finding the right set of bathroom fixtures is not something you can do in a matter of five minutes. There are so many things to consider in them. Read this article to know everything about them. Having a better understanding of these things will help you make the right choices when you are shopping.

Different types of bathroom fixtures

If you have already decided to renovate your bathroom or improve its looks, then you need to know what kinds of bathroom fixtures you would need for your bathroom. But keep in mind that if you consider all the minute parts, this list would be an endless list of complicated bathroom parts. However, to keep it simple and to the point, here is a list of four of the most common types of sanitary ware that are a must-have for every bathroom. In this article, you will also find some really helpful tips that you can use for finding the right sanitary ware.

Toilets

Toilets are essential in every single home. They are part of everyday lives and also an imperative part of bathroom decoration. But the priorities that you have to look for in the toilets are different. These days, more people are interested in buying toilets that do not use much water. You can find plenty of high-efficiency toilets that use less than five litres of water per flush. Another thing to look for is the shape of the toilet bowl itself. There are round bowls, elongated bowls and square bowls. Among these, the elongated bowls will give you the most comfort while occupying slightly more space than round toilets.

Faucets and bathtub taps

Today, you will be able to find at least two or three faucet parts in any home. There will be one kitchen faucet and another toilet faucet, at least. Depending on the size of the house, there can be two or three times more than this. There are shower faucets and outdoor faucets as well. In short, faucets are in a league of their own. Because of this, you will be spending quite a lot of time finding the perfect set of faucets for your bathroom fixtures. However, the most important thing to consider in a faucet is, of course, the design and material.

Showers and shower faucets

There is no way home is complete without a shower or a bath. If you want to keep it simple and inexpensive, you can have just the showerheads and the necessary controls and a shower tray. But it also costs more and makes it much more sophisticated. There are all kinds of other shower accessories that you can buy. These include shower curtains, shower cabins, shower walls, shower enclosures, and walk-in showers. Besides that, it is also possible to install a bath if you have enough floor space in your bathroom.

Bathroom sink fixtures

Sinks are a must-have in your bathroom. But both serve completely different functions and also look different from each other. Some sinks are quite large and are designed with functionality in mind. Because of these, they tend to be mostly of stainless steel or aluminium. On the other hand, bathroom sinks mostly use materials that offer superior finish, like ceramic, glass, and acrylic. Also, bathroom sinks are generally smaller than kitchen sinks. Another differentiating factor is that kitchen sinks come with features like the drying rack and dual bowls to make them more useful in a kitchen. You cannot find it in bathroom sinks.

Tips on how to buy Bathroom Fixtures

The bathroom in your home might not be something people see right away when they come to your house. Nonetheless, you can’t be careless when you choose fixtures for the bathroom. That being said, finding the right sanitary ware can be harder than you might think. As there are many different models out there, choosing one can be quite confusing. However, it can be easier if you know what factors to consider in them. Here are some tips that you can use while shopping for them.

  • Size – Bathroom fixtures come in a wide variety of sizes. There are two things to consider while choosing the size of your sanitary ware. The first one is how big you need them to be for your everyday needs. If you do a lot of cooking and will have a lot of dishes to wash, then you might want a sink with ample space for drying those dishes. Secondly, you should consider how much space you have for sanitary ware.
  • Design – The design is really important for the sanitary ware that you use in the bathroom. It is important for kitchen fixtures as well. You have to look at all the other fittings that you use in your bathroom and kitchen and choose a set that complements their design. This can be one of the hardest parts of choosing a sanitary ware set.
  • Colour – Bathroom fixtures come in a wide variety of colours. If you already have all the other fittings in place, choosing a set of sanitary wares that suits the design of other fittings might not be that difficult. All you have to do is to pick a colour that is already present in those fittings for your sanitary ware.
  • Price and durability – In fact, sanitary ware is generally not cheap. However, within them, there are affordable and expensive models. So, you might be able to find a shower set for a few hundred dirhams or a really high-end shower set that costs around several thousand dirhams. While you don’t necessarily have to go for the highest-end ones, don’t compromise on the quality for the sake of saving a little money.

Question & Answer

How to clean bathroom fixtures?

Bathroom fixtures are notorious for how fast they catch stains. But this is understandable because, in the end, they are dealing with waste materials most of the time. That is why you have to maintain them regularly if you want to keep them looking fresh. The exact way to clean them depends on the material. You can use strong chemicals on ceramic materials. But if it is metal, glass, or acrylic, you should use mild soap detergent and a non-abrasive brush for cleaning. Avoid using chemicals like chlorine for ceramic materials as it can damage the ceramic surface.

How long do bathroom fixtures last?

Bathroom fixtures include a lot of different things. Because of that, it is not possible to say how long they will last without going more specific. Things like toilet cisterns and baths can be incredibly durable. Good quality ceramic baths and toilets can last for over thirty years without any major issues. But when it comes to faucets, their life can be around seven or eight years. But this too depends on the model of the faucet. Other minor things like valves and controls involving delicate mechanisms might need replacement more often.

Why is sanitary ware expensive?

Sanitary ware comes in a lot of price points. But one thing that is true for all kinds of sanitary ware is that even the least expensive ones are not something that anyone would consider cheap unless you are getting some cheap plastic ones. The reason why these fittings are expensive is that a lot of cost goes into designing and also manufacturing them. Materials like ceramic and stone take a lot of effort to bring into shape and finish. But when you consider the fact that these things last for many years, the initial price you place is reasonable.
