New faucets can give a bathroom a fresh look, but with the wide variety of choices available, it can be difficult to know which to choose. However, a few basic guidelines can help the decision of choosing the right faucet. The first consideration must be the opening configuration in the sink for the faucet. There are four common types that include:

 

Low Down on Bathroom Faucets

A widespread-set has three separate holes that are at least eight inches apart, and are made to accommodate larger two-handled styles.

Standard Center-set contains three separate holes within four inches made for two-handled faucets, which are plate-mounted.

Single-hole sinks are for single-handed faucets typically with one lever, hands-free, or small two-handed faucets extended from one fixture, often used for smaller bathrooms.

Wall-mounted are often used with vessel or freestanding sinks, and often have longer spouts to extend into the bowl.

Choose Your Style and Pick a Matching Finish

Next, consider the style and shape. Determine the bathroom's style, such as industrial, contemporary, traditional, rustic, or natural to name a few. Then, use this to create the right look by pairing a curvy shape with a traditional room or angular with a modern one for example. Faucets are also available in different widths, and even shapes like bamboo, dragon heads or with swan wings. There are many finishes available today, and it's important to coordinate all hardware including towel bars, light fixtures and door hardware to achieve a harmonious effect. Consider hammered finishes for a more rustic style, polished finishes for sparkle, and brushed finishes to hide water spots in higher traffic areas. Chrome, brass, nickel, bronze, stainless steel, ceramic, and gold are all available.

Eco-Friendly Options

Additionally, technology has been incorporated in many to reduce water usage for the eco-conscious. These advances also allow for some modern style innovations such as integrated LED lighting that changes color with water temperature variations.

By considering the configuration of the sink openings, the style, and function of the bathroom, it will be possible to choose a faucet that will be a harmonious and beautiful addition to your bathroom.
