When designing your bathroom, you have a lot of choices to make including overall style, color scheme, and layout. Once you’ve determined your style and chosen your primary fixtures, you’ll need to choose those finishing touches, such as faucets, handles and other hardware that tie everything together. There are many options to choose from; not only do you need to take into account shape and style, but color & material as well. Choosing the right hardware style is largely based on the design style of your bathroom. Are you designing a traditional bathroom? You may choose something from Kohler’s Devonshire line or the Monticello line by Moen. Is your design style more modern? Grohe’s Atrio or Tenso lines may be more to your liking.
At One Week Bath, we will help you choose the quality fixtures that will compliment your design and suit your budget.
Among the most popular color / material choices for bathroom fixtures are Chrome, Nickel & Bronze. Depending on the brand and style you choose, other color options may include brass, gold, ceramic, or stainless steel.
Most fixtures require simple care in order to maintain their appearance, such as regular use of common household items like vinegar, baking soda, or a mild detergent and a soft, clean cloth. Hard water stains can be harder to combat, so if you have hard water or other considerations, be sure you know what is required to care for the fixtures you choose for your bathroom.
Moen offers an exclusive non-tarnishing finish called LifeShine®, which is guaranteed for life to not corrode, tarnish or flake off. This finish is as durable as chrome, and comes in a variety of color options, including Brushed Bronze, Brushed Nickel, Polished Brass, and more. Moen is currently offering LifeShine® finish on over 500 fixture sets. Moen LifeShine® fixtures are easy to care for.
