Contemporary bathroom faucets can bring a sleek, up-to-the-minute look to any bathroom space, and help increase the value of your home.

There are many styles of contemporary bathroom faucet designs to choose from, and they're available in a variety of materials. Solid brass and nickel are two commonly used materials in contemporary bathroom faucet design—both can be shaped into the striking, artistic designs common in contemporary bath spaces.

Materials matter when it comes to your contemporary bathroom faucet—when considering which to choose, it's best to err on the side of solid metal construction, as opposed to plating. The appearance of each may seem to be the same, but solid construction will last considerably longer and likely present fewer repair challenges during the life of the faucet.

In terms of style, contemporary bathroom faucets are available in both wall-mount and sink-mount styles. With the rise in popularity of bowl-like vessel sinks, wall-mount styles have become more common, as much for their convenience as for their high style.
