Bathroom Faucets

If you're looking for a quick fix to spruce up your bathroom, one of the easiest ways to make an impact is by updating your sink and shower faucets. By trading your outdated fixtures for new ones, you can quickly create a refreshed look, no matter which style you're aiming for. As you consider your next bathroom faucet purchase, be sure to keep in mind all your finish, style and spout options to create a cohesive feel throughout the space.

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 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 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.

huge: this is much much much bigger than the picture...if you have a small sink, or don't like bulky things this is not for you. however, it is a very heavy feeling faucet and it does look cool. i happen to like bigger looking fixtures, however some think this is for a tub not a 24" bathroom sink. i have not installed it yet, so not sure exactly how good it will look. but out of the box it feels nice and sturdy. oh and I wonder how it is going to take calcium build up form the water. we will see!!!

Beautiful, high quality faucet: I ordered two other faucets before ordering this one and the difference in quality was HUGE. This faucet is gorgeous. My comment to my husband was that "we will look cool with this in our bathroom!" Ha! It looks like the ones that are $500. Comes in cloth pouches to protect the finish. Can't say enough great things about it. Can't wait to have it in my bathroom renovation.

Quality Faucet: Was a little hesitant with a online purchase cause a faucet is a touchy feely thing. The faucet is sturdy and with the aerator water won't splash everywhere when you turn it on.

Great price and design: Love this faucet! We wanted a more modern look, but something that wasn't too modern and would look great in the years to come as well. Such a great price for this one and it's super sturdy and love the design of it. We bought two for our double vanity sinks in our bathroom remodel

Great Price; great quality: Works like a charm...at half the price of the big box home improvement store! Arrived in perfect condition days before the quoted time. Unlike other faucets I actually purchase in the store, the description of how tall the spout is--was accurate!

Modern look: I'm pleased with the modern design that this faucet brought to my bathroom remodel. The packaging was wonderful - they even included a pair of gloves to prevent fingerprints while handling the chrome. Installation was straight forward with no problems. I only gave the faucet 4 stars because of a slight difficulty accessing the lift rod in back, but the product is solid and well-made.
Kauai Brass Rain Shower System With Handheld, 1.8 GPM, Oil-Rubbed Bronze

Quality product, great price.: I looked on line for a rain shower with additional hand held head for retrofitting to our existing master shower and this looked like the best option available. I knew when I ordered it the vertical arm would be too long so I ordered the additional short one. The price was great but I do think it’d be nice if they provided the product with a shorter arm option rather than wasting the long one. It was very easy to fit, not requiring drilling holes. Of course you have to get the righr length nipple and I needed a 3” one which I got at home depot without issue. Everything was provided and the instructions were detailed enough. A couple of hours and the job was done and we are very happy with the result.
