Bathroom Remodeling Fixtures: Showers, Tubs, Handles

In part one of our two-part blog series, we went over some basics to consider when it comes to two vital fixtures for any bathroom remodel: Sinks and toilets. As two of the most notable features in virtually any bathroom, these are often important starting points for any significant remodel. 

At Crown Finish, we’re happy to provide a huge range of home remodeling services to clients around Orem and nearby areas of Utah, including bathroom remodeling, kitchen remodeling and numerous others. Let’s look at a few other key fixtures that are often a major part of your bathroom remodel, plus what to be considering for each of them. 


Depending on the nature of your existing bathroom and the space you have available, there may be several options on the table for shower installation during a remodel. From spacious walk-in showers to compact corner units, you have plenty of choices available – and you can even choose between shower heads, faucets and other hardware pieces in a variety of colors or finishes. Consider your overall budget here, plus if you’re interested in luxury options like rainfall showerheads or steam showers.


In addition to the shower areas we just went over, some homeowners may also be looking to add bathtub functionality during a remodel. Those who have families with young children, for instance, may be focused on safety concerns and might consider walk-in tubs or similar secure options. For others, the goal may be more luxury-related – think large soaking tubs or whirlpool features.

As you’re looking into bathtub options, don’t forget about the visual element. While white remains popular, today’s tubs come in a wide variety of colors and styles that can really stand out as a centerpiece for your bathroom.

Handles and Faucets

Both for sinks and showers, two of the most important hardware pieces are the handles and faucets you’ll be using. These parts come in a variety of materials and finishes, from traditional chrome or nickel to more modern options like matte black or gold. Carefully consider how these pieces will fit into your overall bathroom design and what kind of statement you want them to make.

For instance, if you’re going for a sleek, contemporary look, you might choose modern angular faucets and handles with chrome finishes. On the other hand, if your bathroom features a more rustic or traditional aesthetic, oil-rubbed bronze or copper hardware could be an excellent fit.


Finally, as you’re thinking about fixtures and hardware options for your bathroom remodel, don’t forget about storage needs. Depending on the size of your bathroom and the number of people who will be using it, you may need to include additional cabinetry or shelving to keep everything organized. And just like with other fixtures, there are plenty of options available for these pieces in terms of style and finish.
