Why Are Bathroom Fixtures So Important?

Why Are Bathroom Fixtures So Important?

Your bathroom is a collection of design features and functional appliances that (hopefully) create a cohesive, attractive space. Unless, of course, you have bathroom fixtures and hardware that are outdated, unattractive and don’t work properly.

At Stratton Exteriors, we approach each home renovation project with concern for aesthetics, functionality, and craftsmanship. We also place a high value on choosing materials that are top-notch. After all, it’s not just the look of your bathroom that matters–it’s the durability and function of your bathroom’s actual materials.

Here’s why you should never cut corners when it comes to your bathroom fixtures.

Water Causes Damage Over Time

Your bathroom is a wet environment. From hot steam to splashes from the bathtub or shower, the fixtures and structures you choose for your bathroom should be able to withstand the moisture.

Unfortunately, many homeowners seeking bathroom renovations don’t consider the erosive quality of water. They choose cheap particle board for their bathroom cabinets or select faucets that will tarnish or rust over time. They may also choose a contractor who isn’t skilled in effective waterproofing and doesn’t pay attention to the small (but important) details.

High-quality, properly installed plumbing fixtures, cabinetry and flooring are vital parts of a bathroom that will be both beautiful and long-lasting.

Complementary Design and Performance Is Important

When it comes to your faucets, spouts, drain covers, and shower heads, choosing the right finish can be tough.

Chrome is generally the most affordable finish for fixtures, but because it’s so common, it can detract from the unique flavor of your bathroom’s look.

Whatever you do, it’s important to choose fixtures for your bathroom that have a matching finish. For instance, you might not want to splurge on satin brass for your bathroom faucets and then put chrome or nickel in your shower.  You can extend that complementary design feel all the way up to your lighting fixtures or down to your door knobs, cabinetry hardware and more. You will also want to purchase fixtures that conserve water. Water-conserving faucets and showerheads are both good for the environment and good for your wallet.

With Stratton Exteriors, you’ll have a trusted partner in choosing high-quality fixtures that will last, conserve water, look amazing and create a true design story in your bathroom.

Updated Bathrooms Are Important to Homebuyers

Bathroom Fixtures

Bathrooms have always been among the most important rooms in the home. Today, that’s perhaps truer than ever.

A recent study showed that updated bathrooms were one of the top features that homeowners considered when buying a home. And Millennial homebuyers, who comprise up to 35% of the homebuying market, value updated bathrooms and water-conserving bathroom fixtures in particular. This is good news for homeowners who are looking to sell in the near future.

Another bonus of investing in top-quality bathroom fixtures and renovations? These updates are time and again among the highest-ROI home renovations.

Your bathroom renovation can transform your home, and the fixtures you choose are a huge part of that transformation.
