Choosing Faucet for Your Bathroom
Faucets are one of the most used fixtures in your house and a new faucet is like a great piece. Selecting faucets for your bathroom doesn’t have to be a difficult task, though it’s true that there are a lot of options available and several important things to consider.
You will want a style that suits your décor but you also need to consider the faucet’s structure, the type of finish it has and the shape of sink your new faucet will be attached to.
Understanding your needs and knowing what’s available will help you to make good decisions by striking a balance between your needs and your budget.

Different Types of Faucets
- Single-hole Faucets- Single-hole faucets are best for small sinks. They are easy to maintain. They are easy to install because only a single hole is required in the sink you want the faucet to be mounted to. If you want to buy this faucet but you have a sink with 3 pre-drilled holes then you can use an optional plate to cover up the holes. These faucets may have different handles for hot and cold water.
- Center-set Faucets- Center-set faucets are mostly used in traditional bathrooms. They can be used on sinks with 3 holes set at 4’’ apart. They will have a single lever or two handles mounted on an escutcheon plate. They are ideal for small bathrooms with small sinks and limited space.
- Widespread Faucets- Widespread faucets are available in deck-mounted and wall-mounted form. These faucets have two handles that are separate from the spout. These faucets can be used on sinks with 3 holes set at 8’’ apart. These faucets are mostly used for pedestal sinks.
- Wall mounted faucets- These faucets can be used with freestanding or vessel type sinks that require a long spout for extended reach. If you are going to buy this faucet, keep this thing in mind that this faucet require a separate wall mounted valve and drain for installation. If your sink has pre-drilled holes then this faucet will not work on your sink.
