bathroom fittings

Fitting the right type of fixtures during your bathroom installation is a key part of the renovation process. Not only do the right fixtures add to the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom, but they also play an important role in the functionality of the room. However, with a huge range of fixtures to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are the essentials you’ll need to know when considering what type of fixtures to install in your bathroom.

Types of Fixtures

The first step is to decide which kind of fixtures are best suited for your space. When choosing, consider your lifestyle and needs as well as the overall style and aesthetic of the room.

You can choose from a wide range of taps, tub and shower faucets, toilet flush valves, grab bars and more.

All of these are made in a variety of materials, including metal, tile, stone, terrazzo, and even recycled glass options. Finally, these fixtures come in a huge array of styles, colours and textures.

Factors to Consider

When making your selection, think about how the fixtures will fit into the planned layout and design scheme. Don’t forget to spend time comparing the different fixtures – their size, shape, design, and other features. Additionally, consider cost and durability.

If you are looking for a more sustainable option, opt for products made from recycled materials such as porcelain or glass. You may also want to research the energy efficiency of the fixtures you are considering.


Installation should be carried out by a qualified professional who knows and understands the local plumbing codes and regulations. Don’t forget to factor in any additional costs, such as labour fees and materials. Make sure the installer tests the fixtures before leaving your home. To extend the lifespan and preserve the beauty of your fixtures, consider adding a protective coating.


Finally, don’t forget about the importance of regular maintenance. This includes cleaning and checking for any leaks or clogs. It’s best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and maintenance to ensure your fixtures are always in top condition.
