Selecting fittings and fixtures for your bathroom

Every home has at least one or two bathrooms. Everyone in the house would use it for taking their daily shower and of course for other business. But did you ever wonder how the taps, showers commodes, sinks and other things have been selected and come together? In case, you are building a new house or renovating your bathroom; it is important that you know how to select the right fittings and fixtures. Here are a few tips to help you make the right choice.

The shower area

Most people will have a shower area in their bathroom. It may be a separate cubicle or even fixed above the bathtub. There are various types of shower heads available on the market, and it may be a little complicated when it comes to selecting the right one. Users pick handheld shower heads over regular ones if they prefer the flexibility of aiming the water where they want while some will also prefer the rainfall type which will deliver water from above. There are benefits of both models, and it is mostly based on individual preferences.

The sinks


Many of us will go to the bathroom sink to brush our teeth or shave. You will find that there are hundreds if not thousands of models when it comes to selecting a sink. You will find them made of ceramic, glass, steel and many other exotic materials too. WE will often also want there to be a mirror just above the sink to help us when we shave or even floss. Make sure you get one that is durable and matches the rest of your bathroom.

The taps

Your bathroom will have taps in two or three locations. The sink, the bathtub or the shower area. When deciding on taps, you must ensure that they all match so that your bathroom looks nice. If you have hot and cold water in your home, ensure the model you choose can handle hot water so that they will last you longer.


The seat that we sit on a few times a day and take care of business. Selecting the right toilet is also important if you want your bathroom to look elegant. There are various models, and the closed couple commode is often preferred as it looks better and comes in many designs. Make sure it matched the sink and bathtub in color and shape so that everything will look amazing.
