Try not to drool over these luxury plumbing fixtures

Santa Monica homeowners aren’t unfamiliar with luxury appliances. Whether you live near the swanky shops along Montana Avenue, or just like to keep up with the latest and greatest in home décor, residents put a lot of time and effort into making their homes sleek, modern, and eco-friendly. Of course, you don’t have to decorate your house like a catalogue to appreciate the finer things. Whether you prefer to admire luxury fixtures from afar, are planning to upgrade, or actually live the lifestyle yourself, here are some popular plumbing and water fixtures found in elite households.

Shower thermostats

Getting the temperature just right in the shower can be harder than it sounds. Traditional showers rely on levers or nobs to control the temperature, and let you decide your comfort level based on how hot or cold the water is. But for those of us who are selective about our ideal temperature and prefer to set it ourselves, certain luxury brands now offer manually controlled shower thermostats. Now you can tell the shower precisely how hot or cold you’d like it to be. Additionally, some brands even allow you to control the amount of water used, so that not a single drop of H2O is wasted.

Vessel sinks

Nothing says sleek and modern quite like a vessel sink in your bathroom. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, these high-end, ultra modern sinks look more like basins. They’re typically rectangular or square, but are mostly characterized by their length. They’re a testament to minimalist design and people often choose them when undergoing a bathroom or household remodel. While they don’t have much depth, they’re block-ish design catches the eye immediately upon entering the room.

Walk-in showers

Walk-in showers are increasingly becoming the norm for new homes or full-blown remodeling projects. If you’ve never seen one, it’s the equivalent of a shower in surround sound. They’re more spacious than traditional showers and many feature benches as well as multiple showerheads.

Shower performance – for your kitchen faucet

Perhaps the most popular innovation in luxury plumbing fixtures is the kitchen faucet that more closely resembles a showerhead. More and more brands are making ergonomically comfortable, extendable faucet heads, which give you full flexibility when cleaning vegetables or washing dishes. Officially referred to as handsprays, these fixtures come in two jet types. By simply pressing a button, you can choose between normal and shower spray, depending on what and how you’re washing. The varying degrees of pressure give you flexibility, and minimize splash while you’re standing at the sink.
