Tips for Choosing Hardware for Your Bathroom Remodel

A bathroom remodel is a great way to create a relaxing retreat where getting ready for your day is always a pleasure. From choosing a new bath and shower to deciding on a bathroom cabinet design, you’ll have plenty of decisions to make during the redesign process. But one of the toughest decisions for some homeowners is which bathroom hardware design to land on. From bathroom faucets to showerheads, the right bathroom hardware can make a real splash as part of a well-designed bathroom.

At Home Pro Transformations in Rochester, we love helping homeowners with beautiful home transformations that add value and comfort to their homes and lives. In this post, we’re taking a closer look at some of the things you should consider when choosing hardware for your bathroom remodel. To start creating your dream bathroom call and talk to our design team today!

 1.  Use a unified design for all of your bathroom hardware.

One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when designing their bathroom is purchasing hardware pieces individually without considering whether the completed look will be a cohesive one. To make sure your design looks unified, decide on a style and finish for your bathroom hardware and commit to making sure everything matches. The exception to this rule is if you’re dreaming of an eclectic bathroom design where mixing things up is actually a good idea, although this can be a difficult look to pull off without the help of a professional design team.

 2.  Shop from a reputable source.

These days, you can buy almost anything cheaper online. The problem? Most of the time, this means making a purchase from an overseas seller without many of the guarantees or quality control standards you would have when purchasing from a trusted retailer or through your contractor. This is especially important when you’re investing in bathroom hardware that carries water since any amount of lead used in the manufacturing process could lead to significant health problems for members of your household. 

 3.  Consider eco-friendly designs.

Anytime you’re replacing your old home fixtures, it’s important to consider environmentally-friendly solutions. One of the most common misconceptions is that water is a free and limitless resource that doesn’t need to be conserved. But in reality, cleaning the water supply requires energy and leads to environmental pollution.

And here’s another good reason to conserve water: you’ll save on your own home water bill each month. When you’re looking at faucets and showers for your bathroom, look for indicators that you’re purchasing a more sustainable design like the EPA WaterSense seal. According to the EPA website, homes that make the switch to WaterSense can save as much as 45 showers’ worth of water in the course of a year!
