Choosing The Best Bathroom Faucet For You

When you decide to remodel a bathroom there are many different things to consider, including the tub, the toilet, the flooring, the color of your walls and of course, the faucet. All of these things are important in making your bathroom look just right. If you’ve decided to redo your bathroom, then you should see what JRP Design & Remodel bathroom remodeling has to offer. With so many important decisions to make, you’ve come to the right place.

How To Choose Your Ideal Bathroom Faucet

Although a faucet may not seem as important as the flooring or the cabinets, choosing just the right faucet can really add a special touch to your bathroom. Of course, there are hundreds of different types to choose from, so how do you go about choosing the ideal faucet for your bathroom? First, you need to make sure that your faucet will fit your sink basin; not all types work together. When selecting a faucet there are several mounting types to choose from. They include:

  • Single-Hole Faucets – these can come with two handles or a single-handle lever. They can also be motion or touch activated.
  • Widespread Faucets – these come with two handles for both hot and cold water, and a single spout for the water.
  • Wall-Mounted Faucets – these are freestanding from the sink and usually require a longer spout so they can reach the sink basin.
  • Center-Set Faucets – these are typically a combination of valves and a spout on a unified base unit. They can either have a lever for both hot and cold or two separate handles.

Faucet Controls And Finishes

After you’ve selected the type of mounting you want, you also need to consider the color and finish, as well as the controls. It’s a good idea to match your color and finish with the rest of the bathroom fixtures. Faucets come in many colors and finishes, including:

  • Antique or Ceramic
  • Platinum or Gold
  • Copper or Bronze
  • Iron or Black
  • Brass or Chrome

There are many different controls to choose from as well, including:

  • Knobs – These are common in many faucets and typically function with a turn
  • Motion Censored – you don’t have to touch anything with a motion-censored or touchless faucet.
  • Touch-Activated – these are similar to motion faucets, however you do have to gently touch them to turn them on and off.
  • Lever Handles – these are usually easy to grab and turn.
  • Joystick – these are similar to a lever, but they have a different design and feel.
  • Push Button – get your water easily with the press of a button instead of a handle.
