Bathroom Fixtures

Get info on bathroom fixtures, and choose the styles and designs that will work best for the bath space in your home.


No matter how small a space; it can be visually stunning. In this small powder room, the mirrored shapes and hard and soft colors make it a unique space.



Bathroom fixtures are often one of the top style considerations when planning a bathroom installation or redesign. Sinks, tubs and their respective faucet fixtures are the most prominently featured aspects of a bathroom, so ensuring they work well with—or even help define—the overall bathroom design is a high priority.

There are several basic bathroom sink and fixture styles that are commonly found in homes. They're available in a wide range of materials and prices.

A Touch of History

To warm up this contemporary black-and-white space, designer Candice Olson added an antique storage hutch. A modern print of a classic chandelier further bridges the old and new.

Old Meets New

The design team at De Meza Architecture wanted to combine traditional and modern elements in this 1920s-era bathroom. Designers Gregg De Meza, Jennifer Gustafson and Michelle Nelson nodded to tradition with black-and-white tile, but updated the look with a glass tile mosaic that features a whimsical message in pixilated type.

Bursts of Color

A Touch of Glitz

A washstand is a great choice in a bathroom where storage isn't an issue, like this feminine powder room. Designer Christina Stillwaugh of Jessica Lagrange Interiors combined the gold sink and sconces with a dramatic, large-scale wallpaper that celebrates the pink tones in the stone floor.

Water, Water, Everywhere

Effortless Eclectic Style

Designer Ashley Astelford carved an inviting powder room out of a niche under the staircase in this 1920s Dallas home. The art deco mirror pays tribute to the home's heritage, while fresh surfaces modernize the space.

His-and-Hers Luxury

This bath creates a luxurious space for a couple. A freestanding quarter-sawn island centered in the room matches the quartered oak double doors and offers continuity moving into the room. Each spouse has his or her own space with two large, white painted vanities, double medicine cabinets and framed mirrors. Design by Peter Ross Salerno

Modern Country

A soft color scheme of yellow, white and graphite makes the main bathroom in Sarah Richardson's farmhouse feel like a country afternoon: bright and fresh. A vintage bathtub and other timeworn treasures fit the old-fashioned home.

Airy Asian-Inspired Escape

Designer Joseph Pubilones used a combination of neutral tiles — pale peach, copper and bronze — to create a mosaic that adds interest without too much proverbial volume. The floating vanity adds to the room’s airy allure. Photo by Daniel Newcomb

Wow-Factor Shower

More and more homeowners are opting for luxurious showers in lieu of seldom-used tubs. This stunning floor-to-ceiling shower enclosure embodies the trend; it features dramatic chartreuse and pink tile, a shaving bench and steam capabilities. Design by Joseph Pubillones; photo by Daniel Newcomb

Classic and Clean

This timeless master bath uses cool wall tiles and muted lighting to create a refuge from the daily hustle and bustle. Minimal furnishing and accessories keep rejuvenation the focus of the space. Design by Lori Gilder

Rustic Flair

Designer Dan Heldenbrand used a stone bowl sink and a rustic wood-and-iron cabinet to create a Western-inspired theme in this desert home. Oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and a distressed wood countertop complete the look.

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall

Designer Kenneth Brown used a large-scale mirror to make this small bathroom appear more spacious. The large looking glass also provides ample space for two people to get ready in front of the double vanity.

Mediterranean Luxe

Inspired by the Tuscan architecture of this estate, this palatial master bath features custom-designed mosaics. The vine motif on the floor border continues in the backsplash.

Cool Colors

Imagine getting ready for the day in this elegant, spa-like space. Glass tile on the backsplash and in the couple-friendly shower adds playful color and excitement to the room, while a flat-screen TV allows you to be entertained and prepared before you step out into the world.

Earth-Inspired Bath

This organically-inspired space proves that a bathroom can be both relaxing and dramatic. The soft gray hues of the tree-studded pattern combine beautifully with the textured brown wallpaper on the adjacent wall. Design by Erinn Valencich

A Soothing Spa Retreat

The focal point in this expansive bath is a circular raised area that houses the spa bath and open-air shower. Designer Shelly Reihl David paired the polished pebble floor with Durango travertine and multicolored glass tiles. Oil-rubbed bronze hardware, an iron chandelier and unique accessories complete this elegant look.

Global Chic

A round mirror and bi-colored red horizontal tiles mounted in straight lines give this globally-furnished room a contemporary look. Worldly accessories, like the carved wooden mask and tribal-inspired drawing, look right at home against the warm backdrop. Design by Amy Bubier

Modern Minimalism

Sometimes, less really is more. In this contemporary space, a stark, angular sink and sparse furnishings let details like the bubbly pendant lights and textured door shine through. Design by Elizabeth Rosensteel

Colors from Nature

Designer Sarah Richardson incorporated colors from nature in the master bathroom to create a charming cottage look. Mint green, split-face mosaic tile, exotic marble flooring and moonstone details spruce up inexpensive white tiles for maximum impact at a low cost. A marble top and luxurious mirror dress up the charming, quaint vanity, and the two shutter cabinets provide vintage-inspired storage. The transom window above the freestanding tub gives privacy yet fills the space with plenty of natural light.

Modern Meets Deco

Graceful curves and geometric forms meet in this master bathroom. The blue vaulted ceiling was created from unclaimed attic space; its shape is repeated by the soft fabric screen. An antique tub contrasts with custom slate-topped his-and-her vanities. Design by Van Tullis; photo by Beth Singer

Moroccan-Inspired Getaway

This fresh and crips bathroom's white walls and tub make the standout elements — the cobalt blue Moroccan drum table and lattice-print curtains — stand out all the more. Design by Alisha Gwen

Sit Down and Stay Awhile

Designer Sarah Richardson created an oasis of calm in this elegant bathroom with delicate apricot details and an indulgent soaking tub. A vintage chair and vanity next to the tub provide a place to linger and prepare for the day.

A Secret Garden

To get maximum natural light without compromising bathroom privacy, this bathroom features a walled garden outside the picture windows. A contemporary soaking tub provides a spot enjoy the view, undisturbed. Design by Slifer Designs

One of the most common and economical bathroom sink styles it the drop-in sink. This style fits into a hole in a vanity cabinet or sink stand, and it can be easily installed or removed. Pedestal sinks are another common style of bathroom sink—these freestanding sinks are both economical and space saving. Undermount sinks are slightly higher in price, and they sit flush on the surface of the vanity, whereas drop-in sinks fit over the lip of the hole in the vanity. Vessel sinks are a high-end option—these "floating" sinks sit on top of a vanity as a bowl or rectangular vessel.

Regarding faucet fixtures, there are four basic types: Wide-spread, consisting of a spout with separate hot and cold water handles; two-handle center set, with a spout and both handles combined on a single base; single set, with a spout and a single rotating handle, and wall-mounted, which works well with above-the-counter and vessel sinks.

In terms of a finish for your bathroom fixtures, the overall style of the bathroom will likely dictate your decision. Oil-rubbed bronze is a popular choice for more traditional designs, whereas polished nickel is frequently used in modern, contemporary and traditional spaces.
