How to Choose Bathroom Products

Whether renovating or building a new bathroom; there is more to a bathroom’s design than the tile selection. While tiles add much-needed design aesthetics and serve a function, a bathroom is simply another room in the house without bathroom products.

A complete bathroom comprises many bathroom products and fixtures. There’s the bathroom vanity, the basin, the shower, and in most cases, a toilet and bath as well. There’s also the tapware, mirror and bathroom accessories to consider, and each comes with a different set of considerations.

Bathroom Vanity

There are two main types of bathroom vanities: freestanding and wall-hung. Each of which then has two kinds of tops: a flat top without a basin or a top with a built-in basin. A wall-hung vanity requires extra wall support and plumbing in the wall, while freestanding needs no additional support and standard floor plumbing.

Bathroom basin

Bathroom basins come in an array of designs, styles, and types. The most common being above counter basins, inset basins, under-counter basins, semi-recessed basins and wall-mounted basins.


There are also various solutions for showers. You can opt for a traditional shower screen enclosure, which is available in many formats, or a single shower panel. Walk-in wet rooms have proven to be a popular addition to modern bathrooms.


When shopping for toilets, there are closed coupled toilets, wall-hung toilets, back-to-wall toilets, wall-faced pan toilets, and wall-hung pan toilets, which are by far the most luxurious and contemporary.


If space permits, a bath is an excellent addition to any bathroom. There are many types to consider, including contemporary freestanding baths, corner baths, back-to-wall baths, and traditional drop-in/inset baths.

Bathroom Tapware

Never before has there been such a range of bathroom tapware. There are countless designs and styles, and now, many finish options as well. Chrome bathroom tapware will never date, but brushed tapware is currently very much ‘on-trend’.

Bathroom Mirror

A bathroom mirror can play a very functional role in a bathroom. It can also double up as storage by choosing a mirrored saving cabinet over a standard mirror.

Bathroom Accessories

Bathroom accessories add the finishing touches to any bathroom. They are modern in design and add practical functionality. Popular bathroom accessories include toilet paper roll holders, towel rails, towel rings, robe hooks, soap holders, toilet brush holders and toothbrush holders.
