How to Choose Shower Tapware
Choosing any tapware takes careful consideration, but choosing shower tapware deserves even more attention. The shower isn’t only a place to wash down and clean up. It’s a place to relax and unwind. Therefore, you want to make sure your shower tapware allows for both these things.
Shower tapware today is more abundant than ever before. There are so many types of tapware in so many styles and finishes that choosing just one daunting. Selecting the right shower tapware for your actual needs can easily be disregarded for something more trendy.
Selecting the right shower tapware is easy, providing you know what to consider in the decision-making process. As long as you consider the application, finish and style, you’ll have no trouble selecting the right tapware for your shower.
Shower Tapware Application
The first step in choosing shower tapware is settling on the type of shower tapware you need to help you wash, relax and unwind. If you look forward to having a shower and like to spend a long time in the shower, a shower set or a twin shower that offers both a shower and hand shower may be the best choice. A relaxing rain shower head may be another option.
On the other hand, if you just want to get in and out of the shower, a more conventional shower head may be more practical.
Shower tapware comes in many types, including shower heads, rain shower heads, handheld showers, shower arms, shower sets, and shower rails. Knowing the difference between each and how you intend to use your shower will allow you to select the right shower tapware.
Shower Tapware Finish
Once you select the type of shower tapware, you can then concentrate on the finish and style, starting with the finish. The best way to choose a finish is to match it with existing tapware in the bathroom or throughout your home. If you’re renovating or building a new home, match it with the design of your bathroom style.
For example, if you’re designing a Modern or Contemporary bathroom, a brushed gold, brushed nickel, or gun metal grey finish would be a suitable choice as they’ve very much on-trend. If your bathroom is Hamptons of Coastal, consider something more subtle such as matte black, chrome or brushed nickel.
There is no right or wrong finish to choose; it really comes down to personal taste. However, keep in mind that some finishes will offer better durability than others.
Shower Tapware Styles
Like all tapware, shower tapware is available in many styles and ranges. Round and square tapware are the two leading style choices, which is why they’re in abundance. However, luxury tapware ranges like the Sky, Bianca, and Opal offer more contemporary styles, which are ideal for Modern and Contemporary bathroom designs.
