Make Your Bathroom Beautiful with the Right Faucet

When you’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom, there are multiple fixtures that need to be taken into consideration – one of which is the faucet. You use your bathroom faucets daily and want to choose something that not only fits your bathroom but is also reliable.

Below we will explain some of the basic types of bathroom faucets.

Center-Set Faucet

Center-Set Faucets

Center-set faucets are easy. This type of faucet is made for a sink with three holes in it with handles spaced four inches apart. The center-set holds the spout and handles together in a single unit, making this faucet an ideal option for any bathroom. The center-set comes with the option of either a single handle or two handles mounted on a six-inch plate, thus allowing for more flexibility.

Center-Set Faucet

Single-Hole Faucets

Simplicity is key and that’s what single-hole faucets offer to a bathroom. This type of faucet is essentially just what it sounds like, a faucet with a single hole drilled in it. These faucets typically only have one lever but can be equipped with two if desired. Get in contact with a bathroom remodeling contractor from The Bath Haus’s directory and learn how they can help you make remodeling decisions.

Widespread Mount Faucet

Widespread Mount Faucet

Update your bathroom during your remodel with a widespread mount faucet. This type of faucet is similar to a center-set faucet, because it’s made for a sink with three holes. The difference between a center-set and a widespread mount faucet is the handles of a widespread are at least eight inches apart while the center-set handles are only four inches apart. This faucet has three separate pieces of hardware instead of just one like most of your other faucet options. While choosing a faucet, keep in mind each type of faucet opens up an array of finishes and styles to choose from.

Wall Mount Faucet

Wall Mount Faucets

Wall mount faucets are a bit different from other faucet options. This type of faucet is mounted on the wall over the sink and has gained popularity with sinks that require long spouts. Wall mount faucets require the water supply lines to be above the sink rather than below the sink. This is an area where your bathroom remodeling contractor or plumbing contractor will be very helpful because they will be able to help you decide if this particular faucet is the right fit for your bathroom or not.
