Top 5 Things to Look Out for When Picking Out Bathroom Fixtures for Your Remodel

1. Timeless Details

Fixtures can clash in your bathroom and need to be well thought out. You want each piece to fit together like a puzzle and tie your design together. Those smooth moving faucets are going to be your ASMR every morning.

2. Correct Sizing and Spacing

All bathroom fixtures should be proportionate to your space. You also want to create an accessible experience for your morning routine. From where the shower is placed, to when you need to reach out and grab a towel. These are the things that designers think about and we are blessed to have them at our disposal. They have read countless studies and research about how we move every day. They take their own experiences and others to create stunning layouts that will look beautiful for years to come. 

3. Seamless Design

Doubling down on design here. Design is the most important part of the process, it allows us to develop a timeline to look into the future with renderings and elevations. You want your bathroom to be the best it can be for you. Spend the time working with designers to insure that you are happy every step of the process from start to finish. 

4. Functionality

At the end of the day you want everything to work, drain and dry properly. This can only be guaranteed through professional workmanship and quality parts.

5. Durability

When you get your bathroom done, you are going to want the items that you paid thousands of dollars to ensemble to stand the test of time. Cheap products will cost you more money in the long run and cheap quality will eventually be the start of a bad day. 

If a good contractor believes that you are making a bad decision they will let you know, because they know they don’t want it to be their fault down the road. There are some brands we trust, there are some brands we do not trust(*cough* off-brand amazon *cough*).

4 Reasons Bathroom Remodels Fail

There are countless reasons that bathroom remodels fail, but to save time and energy we narrowed it down to these four reasons. 

1. Going cheap

100% of the time, those luxury looking bargain fixtures are filled with cheap insides and are going to cost you more in the long run. We always recommend going with the least amount of plastic as possible. The age old sayings “Good In, Good Out.” “ Garbage In, Garbage Out.” exists for a reason. We would bet that there is a Latin idiom. It’s probably animated in a cave writing in France.

Just don’t go cheap. 

Pick quality fixtures that are going to last for years to come. 

2. DIY- Yourself to death

We live in a day and age that we have a prolific amount of information at our fingertips and all of us can be a jack of all trades. Home remodeling is not something to take lightly and some twin brothers on TV aren’t going to tell you all the secrets. The secret is, just like with anything, its muscle memory. These professionals that will be working on your home have put in their 10,000 hours. They hit the nail on the head every-time. You want a small leak to go unnoticed until its too late? Then, DIY-it or have someone DIY- it for you. No, hire professionals. We will get the job done right every time. That is at least our motto. 

3. Not Considering existing infrastructure

If your bathrooms layout is completely outdated or you need more space. 

A wall is coming down

What’s behind that wall?

If its nothing you’re fine.

Chances are it’s something!!!

We just have to plan for that is all. Planning is key in any construction project. With new technology you start to hear the word impossible less and less. This also lets us experiment with new ideas and to do something that HAS NOT been done before. 

4. No Design Meeting

“In designers we trust.” Every home has its unique features and obstacles to address. Design meetings are key and allow us to iron out all of the details before breaking ground. This also gives you a pretty clear idea of how all of the fixtures are going to complement one another. 

Professionals who don’t bring you through a design meeting are not professionals. Your remodel should be a smooth experience. Design meetings make that possible.
