What type of style faucet should you choose?

If you're going to replace an old faucet instead of starting from scratch, your style options are going to be more limited — you'll need to choose a faucet that matches the holes of your existing sink. If you're looking to start fresh, you can customize your new sink and its fixtures to accommodate the new contemporary look and feel you desire. In general, here are the most popular options:
Single-hole:These units have generally have one handle connected to the spout which controls water temperature. They’re compact, and easy to use, maintain and install.
Center-set: The most commonly used and least expensive faucets, they combine the handles and spout on a 4” base unit. These work well on smaller basins.
Widespread:This option features hot and cold water valves that are separate from the spout. Though a pricier faucet, they’re more flexible in terms of placement, and are usually at least 8” wide.
Wall-mount: These work well with non-traditional sinks that don’t come with pre-drilled holes, such as vessel sinks. They also reduce clutter since they’re generally installed higher than typical faucets.

What do you need to know about internal valve systems?

The internal valve system controls the flow of water through the spout, so it’s an extremely important facet to high-quality operation. This is something you’ll want to invest in to ensure it works properly for years to come. These four available internal valve systems are as follows:
Compression:The most common type, it’s the only system that uses a rubber washer to control the flow of water. However, the washers wear out easily, which can result in dripping.
Ball (washerless): Water through this system is controlled using a slotted metal ball. It’s durable and reliable, but must be paired with a single-handle faucet.
Cartridge (washerless): This system operates on a stem cartridge that moves up and down to regulate flow. Also durable and reliable, it’s compatible with both single- and two-handle faucets.
Ceramic disk (washerless): With two ceramic disks moving against each other to control water flow, this system is virtually maintenance free. It tends to be pricier, but can be used with single- or two-handle faucets.

What type of finish should you consider?

There are many different materials to choose from; as you make your decision, be sure to find one that complements your bathroom’s current contemporary décor. Brass, bronze and copper add a warm, inviting tone to your bath, while nickel, chrome and stainless steel are slick, trendy options. For a more classic look, try white, gold or black. Regardless of your pick, keep your eye out for manufacturers that offer lifetime finishes to ensure your faucet remains in top condition over the years.

What additional features might you want to include in your faucet?

Anti-scald protection helps protect from burning, particularly with young children. You may consider adding a filter for drinking water, or installing an adjustable flow-rate restrictor to conserve water.
