Bathtubs have come a long way, baby. Where once, the only choice was a built in tub/shower or a claw foot tub, today there are endless choices for both built-ins and freestanding tubs. If you're remodeling your bathroom or simply replacing your tub, it's a grand time for tub shopping.
If you're in the midst of a kitchen or bathroom makeover you will find yourself facing an endless string of design decisions about colors, styles and finishes. What goes together to form a cohesive and appealing look with your hard-working faucets, taps, handles and showerheads? It may be best to determine your favorite style and dial things in from there.
Handheld showerheads used to be designed for kids, and those who needed extra control over showering. No more. Handhelds now are designed for anyone who wants to train water on every part of their body, especially the ones that ache and need some hot water soothing.
In bathrooms, we recommend a mixture of light sources. Many designers suggest using fluorescent lights in showers and in lighted bath fans since once you put the lens on, you can’t tell the difference, but some prefer incandescents in the bath bar around the vanity where women apply their makeup. That blend of sources works perfectly with Moen’s bathroom lighting fixtures in the Waterhill, Iso, Rothbury and Eva collections, all of which will take a maximum of 100-watt, medium-base incandescent bulbs.
