Vessel sink faucets can add drama and striking beauty to any bathroom design. These fixtures are often wall-mounted, meaning they give the impression of floating freely above the sink vessel, creating an artful, airy design.

One thing to keep in mind if you're installing a vessel sink faucet is that it needs to be precisely aligned with the sink drain. If it's misaligned even marginally, you could end up with a very messy vessel sink, with lots of splashback. You don't want guests emerging from the bathroom having received an impromptu spritzing from the sink, so be sure to measure carefully and align the faucet and sink drain properly when installing your vessel sink faucet.

Once the faucet is installed and properly aligned, it's time to install the vessel itself. Vessel sinks come in a variety of materials, styles and colors. Common materials include porcelain, glass and stainless steel. Vessel sinks tend to be more expensive than their more traditional counterparts, such as pedestal or console sinks.

In terms of the style and materials for your vessel sink faucet, there are many possibilities. Plated metal or stainless steel are common choices for a sleek, stylish vessel sink faucet look, as these can be easily shaped to add curves or angles to the faucet for added visual appeal.
