Evolution of Shower and Tub Fixtures

From basic functionalities to luxurious spa-like experiences, the evolution of shower and tub fixtures reflects the changing demands and tastes of homeowners. Today’s fixtures offer a blend of innovation and aesthetic diversity, catering to a wide range of preferences.

Types of Shower and Tub Fixtures

Shower and tub fixtures come in various forms, including showerheads, tub faucets, waterfall fillers, and hand showers. Each type serves a unique purpose and offers different benefits, from water efficiency to therapeutic features.

Comparing Showerheads, Tub Faucets, and Hand Showers

Each type of fixture offers unique benefits. Today’s showerheads offer a range of spray settings, and tub faucets are made with a focus on filling efficiency. Hand showers provide flexibility and ease of use, especially in cleaning and rinsing. Rocky Mountain Hardware is a  standout choice for luxury tub and shower fixtures, combining functionality with the time-tested elegance of bronze craftsmanship.

Importance of Material Choice

The material of your shower and tub fixtures plays a crucial role in their longevity and performance. While materials like brass and stainless steel are widely available and resist corrosion and wear, nothing stands the test of time like handcrafted, art-grade bronze. Every piece of Rocky Mountain Hardware from mold to finish is handmade in the USA from high-quality bronze. Our hand-applied patinas and polishes ensure each piece ages gracefully, getting richer and deeper in color and character as it responds to your unique environment. The result is a completely personalized, sculptural piece of art you will cherish for years to come.

The Enduring Quality of Handcrafted Bronze

Bronze fixtures are known for their longevity. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for decades. The lifespan often extends beyond that of more common materials like brass and stainless steel. In addition to longevity, bronze is highly resistant to corrosion, which is particularly beneficial in humid or wet environments like bathrooms and kitchens. Regular cleaning with a soft cloth and mild soap helps maintain the appearance and prevent the buildup of grime and tarnish. Applying a thin layer of quality wax can also protect bronze surfaces from moisture and reduce the rate of patina development if desired.

Design and Aesthetic Appeal

Choosing fixtures that complement your bathroom’s style is essential. Whether you prefer a modern, minimalist look or a more traditional, ornate design, the right fixtures can significantly enhance the overall aesthetic.

Shower and Tub Fixture Design Trends

Contemporary trends in fixture design lean towards sleek, streamlined shapes, often with matte finishes. Traditional designs, however, feature more intricate details and classic finishes like polished brass or chrome.


Rocky Mountain Hardware is an environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable business. We were implementing green practices long before it became a trend. We strive for zero-waste processes where possible, the premium quality bronze we use to form our pieces is made from reclaimed products, and our beautiful custom finishes are eco-friendly. We feel good about how our products are made. You can too.

Installing Rocky Mountain Hardware

While some fixtures can be self-installed, we recommend working with a trade professional or licensed contractor to install shower and tub fixtures. This will ensure optimal performance and avoid installation issues.
