Kitchen and Bathroom Fixtures
When people do a renovation on a room in their home, they tend to easily think about the big things - what type of cupboard material to choose for the kitchen or whether to go with a glassed-in shower or claw foot tub. But what about the little personal touches, like the bathroom faucet that you touch multiple times a day or the kitchen cupboard handles that you grab for when you need to set the table for dinner or grab a glass for cocktail hour? How do you decide what works and what doesn’t when it comes to picking kitchen and bathroom fixtures for your Mississauga home? Here are a few things to think about when it comes to adding new fixtures, whether you’re doing something like a full bathroom renovation or just looking for a way to do a quick kitchen update without breaking the bank.
Budget vs Value
We all wish that we could build our dream kitchen or bathroom but something the budget just won’t allow for it. There are ways of getting what you want without feeling like you’re compromising too much. Think about what you’ve always wanted to have and do a little research, ask your local bath and kitchen centre expert, or even ask friends with similar taste what they liked or what they’d wished they’d done when doing their renovations. Think about added value in terms of how long your fixtures will last, both in long-term resilience and look, and make sure you know what materials are on the inside of fixtures, not just what the coating is. There are environmentally friendly options, such as a water saving, low-flow faucets that will give you savings over time.
Personality and Design
Typically keeping to a single design theme throughout a room is best when it comes to design (unless a mismatched look is something you’re going for) but you’re going to be the one looking at and spending time in your space so you want to make sure you’re happy with how it looks. Fixtures and hardware are an easy way to insert some personality without breaking the bank or creating something that will feel outdated in a few years. Pick out some funky handles or a statement light fixture to draw the eye and start conversations. Let your taste and your persona shine through, whether that means brass fixtures and handles throughout your bathroom or a funky yet elegant mix and match style of different metals for your kitchen.
Functionality and Use of Space
Another thing to consider when choosing your bathroom or kitchen fixtures is its functionality within your space. Don’t have a big kitchen or bathroom? Consider a single-handle faucet or something wall-mounted, which gives you extra space underneath.
Not only does updating and upgrading your space make you feel better, it adds value to your home in the event that you sell.
