Top Tips for Selecting the Best Bathroom Fixtures



bathroom fixturesMy clients are very grateful for help when it comes to selecting fixtures for their bathrooms. They want to create a custom look for each bathroom without breaking the bank. While your bathroom is not the main showplace of your home, it’s a room that almost all your guests will visit and the fixtures are attached the floor so we all respect the cost and semi-permanence of the situation. If you are selecting bathroom fixtures for your new home or renovation here are some pointers that will give you a custom look that you will be happy with for years to come.

Always Upgrade

An upgrade in bathroom fixtures is more affordable than you think. Figure out what you are comfortable spending and then see what collections are in your price range. Many builders and plumbers use the cheapest and most boring toilets available so they can mark them up and make a little cash. So, do your homework. There are lots of resources on the web to compare prices. Now bear in mind that the low prices you see on the web usually mean the fixture is drop shipped to the curb of your home (or inside if you are lucky) and you will have to be home for the delivery. Look out for hidden cost. Freight and delivery can be substantial on heavy fixtures and your local showroom may be able to give you a better deal on the total package. Whoever is doing the leg work deserves a little markup but it should not be outrageous.


Kohler is by far my favorite vendor. They have a broad selection items that range from the affordable to the extravagant. They also have great customer service and will readily provide you with parts and instructions if anything needs to be fixed. You can create an account for yourself with folders for each room. It’s also easy to browse finishes and search for a product using very specific parameters. They show all the suggested retail prices so you can ask your local showroom what discount they will give you and then you can figure out your budget at home. They do not sell to consumers online but will direct you to a showroom or dealer in your area.
