When it comes to building or remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, the first thing you need to decide on, besides the shape and size of the room itself, is its plumbing. But plumbing isn’t just about drains and waste water! Your plumbing fixtures can say a lot about your style and the atmosphere of your home. When mapping out the design of your kitchen or bathroom, consider installing eye-catching features that you can build the room around. Don’t neglect style! Below are a few great ideas for plumbing fixtures that will make your plumbing design the center of attention.
A Standout Sink
When it comes to sinks, don’t opt for boring. A faucet that comes out of the sink itself is outdated. To create a unique design in your home, consider installing a sink with the faucet emerging from the wall. The sink’s basin should also be a centerpiece, giving you enough room to wash things but complementing your bathroom or kitchen as well.
A Bold Bathtub
You don’t have to settle for a bathtub that’s stuck to the wall! Consider designing a fixture that makes your tub the center of the room. Not only can it be romantic, but your bathroom will feel roomier once you give it an island. When deciding on the tub’s shape, consider your style. You could go with a traditional look, something more circular, or an unusual design!
Pipes That Peek
Not all of your pipes have to be hidden. Some could even hang from the walls or ceiling! While they’re usually not visible, adding some exterior pipes can create a unique, mechanical feel in your bathroom or kitchen. You could even hang decorative or practical items from the pipes, with the go-ahead from a professional plumber, of course.
What’s the best finish for all of these awesome design pieces? You have a few good options to choose from, depending on your budget. A chrome finish tends to be the least expensive and is quite reliable. However, if you want to splurge a little, nickel or oil-rubbed bronze are a few fantastic considerations. Your pipes will typically get a brass or plastic finish. There are plenty of fairly simple ways you can arrange your plumbing to get the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams and impress your visitors. If you need some advice or you’re planning on redesigning a room’s plumbing, be sure to reach out to a professional plumber.
