There’s truth to the saying, "it’s the little things that count." But in the bathroom, little things equate with hardware. Bathroom hardware consists of fun details like towel hooks, towel bars, towel rings, knobs and accessories, shelves, and everything you need to install them. Here’s what you need to know about bathroom hardware.
Generally, hardware costs between $35 and $100 to outfit your entire bathroom, although this can vary quite a bit depending on the quality and type of hardware you buy. Expect to pay more if you need extras like a towel rack or a shower bar. Get help on your bathroom remodel by getting in touch with a contractor.
The durability of bathroom hardware depends on the manufacturer and the style you choose to go with. However, most drawer pulls and knobs will last the lifetime of your bathroom since they receive minimal wear and tear.
There is little to no maintenance associated with bathroom hardware. Simply wipe it down with a cloth while cleaning to ensure that your hardware looks its best.
It seems pretty straightforward, but you can choose between a bar, double bar, swivel bar, ring, rack, hook or shelf. Towel bars can be positioned in a variety of places to suit roomy or small bathrooms. They can even be mounted directly onto your sink.
Each of the above selections can be broken down further. Take hooks, for instance. There are single hooks, double hooks, and hooks mounted in a series against a backing. If you’re tight on space, hooks conveniently turn your bathroom door into handy storage space.
Make sure to take note of the style of your major bathroom fixtures to ensure that everything will coordinate nicely. You can certainly create an eclectic design, but it should still be somewhat cohesive.
