What Decorative Plumbing Means to Us

Plumbing by its very nature has long been more about efficiency than about aesthetic. Over the years, preferences in designs have explored just about every option for bathrooms that have no choice but to feature plumbing in one form or another. Since bathrooms have the task of producing water, as well as taking away waste, many homeowners have taken to using clever ways to either disguise their plumbing, or make it look as beautiful as possible.

Plumbing Tools

Therein lies the heart of decorative plumbing. There are many ways to implement decorative plumbing into your bathroom remodeling plan, especially if you start with small, easy-to-replace accessories like bathroom sink faucets and other fixtures. Those that want to go further might want to consider replacing any visible pipes with plumbing that looks similar to your furnishings in order to make it blend in as much as possible.

Regardless of exactly how much you want to dress up your plumbing (some bathrooms do well with a rustic "bare bones" design), there are lots of avenues to take during the planning process. Doubling as works of art, decorative plumbing pieces can be found in the following categories.

Decorative Faucets

One of the most common features to be replaced during the bathroom renovation process, decorative faucets come in just about every style, shape, and color imaginable. Really, the only question is the theme that you want to impose on the room’s plumbing. The faucet is an instant character setter for a bathroom, which is no doubt the reason behind the high variety of options.

Whether you want a single or dual handle system will depend on your own preference, as will the style of the neck and spout type of the faucet. Many even come in an array of finishes and ceramic patterns. A wall-mounted fixture opens up a whole other dimension of possibilities.

Dual Sink Top

Finished Plumbing

Those who have decided to feature their plumbing as a part of their bathroom design would be well served by choosing a consistent finish to ensure that guests understand that it’s all part of the decor. One of the most popular (and least expensive) finishes is chrome, since it has a habit of matching just about any color scheme. Also, the reflective surface adds a sense of cleanliness to the atmosphere. For a more refined look, you may also consider finishes like bronze, copper, or polished nickel.

Other Decorative Plumbing Fixtures

Some decorative plumbing features exist simply to mask the perceived ugliness of indoor plumbing. For instance, a mounted kitchen cabinet could be designed to look like a wine barrel with a built-in sink. Although such fixtures don’t necessarily highlight the plumbing in your home, they add a new dimension to your design scheme that cannot be ignored.

While planning out the steps you’ll take to complete your bathroom remodel, be sure to consider your current piping configuration and decide whether you want to dress up, dress down, or hide your plumbing.
