When an architectural project enters the final phase, it’s time to put the smaller details in the bathroom and kitchen together, that is, picking the finishes for the walls and floors, as well as the countertops, and choosing the right fittings. These elements are essential for a well-designed space, regardless of the style.

Plumbing fixtures are devices that plug into a plumbing system to supply and drain water inside and outside the home. Each faucet can have a different function and use, including components such as faucets, valves, shower heads, and other accessories. The fittings are also defined according to the type of hot water preparation, for example with natural gas, solar energy or even electric showers. In addition to functionality, the right fittings with their shape, workmanship and type of installation also contribute to the mood of the design, which is why they are often treated as a decorative element.

Faucets are important elements when choosing faucets. In general, they can be fixed to the wall or countertop and can be metallic, polished or brushed, or even painted in different colors to match the other fixtures. Most kitchen faucets are mounted on deck and installed on the countertop, as seen in the Barista’s Kitchen / Estúdio Mineral + Cynthia Silva and the Estúdio Elã / Natália Lemos + Paula Pupo, both of which have tall taps with a matt black finish. The Apartamento Equador 201 / DC.AD and the apartment in New York / Crosby Studios also have colorful fittings in white and matt blue.

The Kentaro Yamada Apartment / Bernardo Amaral Arquitectura e Urbanismo and the Sardenya Apartment / Raúl Sánchez also use counter-mounted faucets, but with a chrome finish, while the Mo-Tel House / Office S&M uses a brushed metal finish. On the other hand, some projects use wall-mounted faucets, like in Apartamento BM32 / EstudioReciente, or even in the kitchen sink, like in Menir House / Très Arquitetura.

When it comes to bathrooms, there are more faucets and surface options to choose from, including shower heads and bidet showers that can match the sink faucets. In the Sardenya Apartment / Raúl Sánchez, the wall-mounted faucet and handle are in a matt black finish, as can also be seen in the Estúdio Elã / Natália Lemos + Paula Pupo and in the La Vida Residencial Building / Todos Arquitetura, while the Menir House / Très Arquitetura and the Mo-Tel House / Office S&M both use a brushed metal surface and the Apartamento Equador 201 / DC.AD a matt white color. The Kentaro Yamada Apartment / Bernardo Amaral Arquitectura e Urbanismo, on the other hand, like the Function Walls / Lookofsky Architecture and the Apartamento BM32 / EstudioReciente, uses a chrome finish.

Apartamento Itu / SuperLimão Studio takes a different approach by using recycled pieces from junk yards and construction rubble, leaving the bathroom pipes exposed. The faucet on the kitchen sink consists of leftover sanitary fittings, which shows us how different and also unexpected the selection of fittings and fittings in kitchen and bathroom design can be.
