If you're installing a brand-new bathroom or redesigning an existing one, you'll want to explore the wide range of bathroom faucets available. These fixtures are so common in our lives that they can become a design afterthought—but it's precisely because of their constant use that it's important to give them plenty of consideration.
First and foremost, when it comes to faucets, quality really counts. Solid brass construction, as opposed to plated metal or plastic, will significantly increase the life span and overall durability of a faucet. Just remember, sticker shock for high-quality faucets isn't uncommon, but sticker shock for plumbers is pretty much universal.
There are four standard configurations for bathroom sink faucets: 8-inch (widespread), 4-inch, single-hole and wall-mount. Except for wall-mount faucets, all of these can be mounted on the sink deck. Measuring the span between the centers of the two outermost faucet holes in your sink will determine which type of faucet it can accommodate. If you have a vessel or undermounted sink, a wall faucet is an option.
If you're starting from scratch, you'll likely want your faucet to match the overall style of the bathroom—whether it's traditional, vintage, rustic or modern. If you're just updating the look, keep in mind that faucets should usually match other hardware in the bathroom, such as towel racks and toilet paper holders.
