Even if you're not installing new fixtures, you can still accessorize.

Tub and shower
It is essential, and possible, to fit comfortably in the space where you bathe. When selecting a tub, be sure that you can submerge comfortably, with your shoulders well under the rim and legs extended. Today the sizes have increase greatly from vintage and mid-century designs. The shower may be sited with the tub or given its own stall, but either case you can place the shower and head at the height you want.
Sink and toilet
sink present tremendous design opportunity with a range of shapes, sizes, materials, and structures to choose from: old, new, or repurposed, porcelain, metal, glass, or stone. When choosing a sink, consider the height of those who will be using it. When selecting a toilet, choose a model that flushes powerfully and fills quietly.
Faucet and fitting basics
"fittings" is the technical term for all faucets, spouts, spigots, handles, tub fillers, and other hardware that move water to and away from a fixture. Lower spouts, whether straight or curved, offer an increased rush of water but less clearance, and so require deeper bowls. To avoid splashes, make sure the spout is log enough to overhang the rim of the basin and pour directly into the drain.
