How To Match Baths With Other Bathroom Fixtures

     Selecting the right baths involves both functional aspects and aesthetics. The aspect of functionality might be a little bit easier and straight-forward, because it either works or it doesn't.

On the other hand, aesthetics may be influenced by your personal states and you might end up with a look that everyone else in your house detests. So, how do you match you bath choice with the other fixtures in your bathroom?

1. Do You Match Everything to Create a Cohesive Look?

Perhaps, you're already faced with the dilemma, whether to mix-and-match or just to match.

You might wonder whether to create a completely uniform and cohesive look in your bathing space, by installing fixtures that match in terms of design, colour and material. Perhaps, you're thinking of a combination of a white tub with a ceramic, white sink. You might also want a prevailing white or cream colour on the walls and vanities. Would it really look as good as you envision it in your mind?

Maybe you don't really want to go as far as to make a complete white splash. Instead, you might be considering just a uniform material selection for the metal fixtures in the bathroom, including bath faucets, sink faucets and door knobs.

On the other hand, you might consider whether you might actually pull off a mix and match look. How would the bathroom feel with a variety of colours? Would it be ok to combine bronze door hardware with chrome faucets?

The answer to these questions may not be as clear-cut as you may expect. There really isn't any wrong in selecting a cohesive look or an eclectic "collected over time" look.

However, what you need to keep in mind is the underlying reason behind your choice. What kind of atmosphere do you want to create within the room? Do you want to create an exciting and exhilarating feel or a cosy and relaxing air? When you understand this and how different materials, colours and designs can help you achieve it, then you'll be better placed to pick the best option.

Perhaps - if you need a more hard-and-fast rule - you can consider the findings of a 2014 study on fashion, published in the Public Library of Science journal. Interestingly, the study uncovered the fact that most people preferred a colour combination that isn't completely different or completely uniform. If you wish to select a good look that will also be appealing to the rest of your household, this might be a useful bit of information.

2. You Still Need to Consider Utility in Aesthetics

Perhaps, you've already chosen the right products that would offer the best service. Now all you need to consider is the aesthetic aspect. However, even when you consider aesthetics, you would still need to refer back to considerations of utility.

If a particularly interesting design or finish has caught your eye, you should also think how easy or difficult it may be to use or even clean it. Also, consider how expensive repairs and replacements may be, especially if you opt for particularly expensive products.
