Top Plumbing Fixture Trends in Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay homeowners are constantly upgrading their plumbing fixtures. Below, are some of the hottest trends in plumbing fixtures that Cass Plumbing of Tampa Bay has been installing throughout the Greater Tampa bay region.

Apron Front Kitchen Sinks

The popularity in apron front kitchen sinks can be attributed in large part to the farmhouse design trend. There is something about these deep sinks that undoubtedly evoke romantic notions of country living. Apron front kitchen sinks are available in a myriad of colors, as well as eye-catching hammered copper or nickel, apron sinks are truly one of those “old is new again” types of trends in the Tampa Bay market.

Sensor Faucets

It is somewhat ironic that the kitchen faucet has long been both the cause and solution for the spread of germs within the kitchen. While in the heat of meal preparation, it’s almost impossible for the time-pressed cook to avoid contaminating their faucet by direct hand contact. Realizing that a lot of germs can be taken out of circulation by a touchless faucet, manufacturers have developed new sensor driven faucets that can be operated with a simple touch. It is not surprising that the technology has been expanded to include bathroom applications as well. If you are interested in getting a new touches faucet in your Tampa bay home installed, call the plumbing fixture experts at Cass Plumbing of Tampa bay today.

Freestanding Tub

In Tampa bay, the bath tub has been a fixture of the bathroom that remained the same for too long.  Today’s freestanding tubs are helping accentuate their space by adopting an array of new shapes, styles, and materials. While the cast iron clawfoot design may always remain an iconic favorite, today’s lighter, acrylic tubs are able to provide just as good a soak. Cass Plumbing of Tampa Bay is always available to install your new tub.


Curbless Showers

The growing number of homeowners choosing to age in place have made the curbless walk-in shower one of the most popular must haves in contemporary Tampa Bay bathrooms. Originally designed to help seniors avoid serious slipping accidents, this trend has found growing appreciation among the general population. By removing the shower door and threshold, designers can now provide cleaner lines and a more spacious look for even the smallest of bathrooms.

Air Tubs

A whirlpool or air tub is becoming more essential as bathrooms continue their transformation into spa-like retreats. The overall therapeutic experience is becoming more enhanced with the inclusion of aromatherapy products in the bath, coupled with soothing chromotherapy lighting systems.


Glass Vessel Bathroom Sink

Old is becoming new again, and this can’t be better illustrated than with the installation of a vessel bathroom sink. Many bars and restraints started installing these fixtures throughout the Tampa Bay region 10 years ago, and now many of the Tampa bay homeowners have caught on and having them install in their homes.


Modern Shower Heads

New shower heads are becoming really big in Tampa Bay homes. Modern shower heads work differently than older shower heads, so there are many advantages to purchasing a new shower head from Cass Plumbing and having it professionally installed. An older shower head’s interior often was a cavity that filled with water, forcing the water through the tiny nozzles, meaning the individual nozzles had very little water pressure. A newer shower head installed by Cass Plumbing has individual channels that feel the nozzles, increasing the ability to deliver water pressure.

With all of the different options and features in shower heads, you can pick exactly the type of shower you’d like to have, including rain-style, pulsing jets, or steady spray.
