Bathroom fixtures and fittings – what’s the difference?

Are you currently planning your dream bathroom renovation, but finding yourself a bit lost amongst all the bathroom terminology?

When it comes to redesigning a bathroom, there are so many things to decide on - from tiles, to taps, to showers and radiators – it can all get a bit overwhelming!

Understanding the jargon can make it a little easier to sift through all your options, and go on to create the perfect relaxing space in which to enjoy a refreshing early morning shower or a long, indulgent, late-night soak.

In this blog, we take you through the difference between bathroom fixtures and fittings, as well as sharing some of our favourites.

Bathroom Fixtures

Bathroom fixtures are fixed firmly in place in your bathroom – think objects that are plumbed or wired in. They are considered to be permanent bathroom features, and only tend to be detached or moved when completely renovating the room.

This includes: baths, toilets, sinks, taps and showers.

Bathroom Fittings

Bathroom fittings are fitted in addition to your fixtures, and are more easily moved or changed. They are sometimes hung, or nailed to a wall.

Examples include: mirrors, toilet seats, shower curtains, and bathroom furniture such as wall cabinets or drawers.
