If you ask homeowners what “plumbing fixtures” are, they’ll most likely say “faucets.” Plumbing fixtures are all of the exchangeable parts of your plumbing system. That means everything, visible and hidden, that comes into contact with water qualifies as a plumbing fixture, including showers stalls and bathtubs.
Bathrooms are renovated more often than kitchens, maybe because it’s a smaller, seemingly less complicated project. If you’re planning a remodeling project or new construction, soon, here are some bathroom plumbing fixtures upgrades and designs that are trending now:
