Understanding Bathroom Faucet Choices

November 16, 2010

Although bathroom faucets may seem that they are rather inconsequential in the whole scheme of things that is actually a long way from the truth. The faucets you chose can actually seriously impact the overall look and function of your bathroom and they should always be choosen with as much care as you would a “bigger ticket” item like a new shower or floor.

There are literally hundreds of bathroom faucet styles and models to choose from but they all fall into one of several basic categories.

Wide Set – What is considered to be a wide set faucet is one that has separate handles for hot and cold water that are mounted either side of a central spout. The three elements are more spaced out than some other bathroom faucet options making them a great choice for a larger bathroom sink.

Center Set and Mini Spread – These are smaller versions of a wide set faucet and are best used with a smaller sink to impart a similar sense of easy elegance.

Single Hole – These are the simplest of bathroom faucets, consisting of a single mixing handle attached to the water spout. However these can also be some of the most visually striking options and great for adding that extra “something” to a rather plain bathroom sink.

Basin Faucets – In this set up hot and cold water handles are set apart at opposite sides of a sink. Basin faucets are often a great choice for a bathroom with a vintage theme.

Wall Mounted – The one word that would describe wall mounted faucets is dramatic. The “waterfall” effect can change the whole look of the bathroom and as they are usually used with a bowl sink the look is striking enough to dominate the whole room is so desired.
