Choosing a bathroom faucet for your style

Like kitchen faucets, the variety of bathroom faucet styles and finishes can get dizzying. When buying your perfect faucet, you need to keep a couple of concepts in mind. Start with the type of handles you prefer, like one handle or two handles, think about your personal style and personality for that matter. Give some thought to the finish you want and does it complement your existing bathroom fixtures? Will the faucet you choose fit easily into your current bathroom sink, or will you have to hire a plumber or call your Uncle Bob to install it? Lastly, think about how much George Washington you want to spend. Do your research and read what you get in the box, some manufacturers package the bathroom faucet separately from the handles so you may need to purchase the faucet handles separately. Those crafty makers! There is nothing like getting a nice gift for yourself and finding out that there are only two-thirds.

The price difference for some faucets is not their outward appearance, it’s what’s inside that counts, and that doesn’t just apply to faucets! Some faucets look great at first, but then they start to leak due to the plastic parts inside. This means that you will have to put in the effort and spend the money that you should have spent on a quality faucet in the first place. Again, do your homework and call the customer service department if necessary to find out what exactly you are getting.

Now, I’ll break down the most popular styles so you can get a better idea of ​​what’s out there. Oh by the way or by the way, for all young people, the proper term for the sink faucet is sink faucet. So in your search, if you can’t find what you are looking for under “sink faucet”, try searching under “sink faucet”.

Two-handle basin faucets are the most common and come in a multitude of flavors. There is the traditional core set, the mini-generalized, the generalized, and the wall mount. They range from a traditional style like Moen Brantford’s pervasive two-handle basin faucet to the contemporary side, like the American Standard Green Tea faucet, which is discreetly disguised as a pull-out bathroom faucet – great!

The next two are the single handle core assembly and the single hole core assembly. Single handle styles stretch from the 1980s with the oblong shaped plastic pop-up handle like Moen Chateau’s single handle center basin faucet (I think this was in my house when I was a kid!) super elegant Price Pfister Bernini Basin Faucet.

Lastly, we have some pretty taps that are the epitome of relaxation. The Roman tub and claw foot tub faucets. Roman bathtub faucets are a really nice piece for that built-in, freestanding, or whirlpool tub. Clawfoot bathtub faucets are nice if your style is very classic, like the early 1900s, and you have a good budget to play with. These faucets look extremely stylish and are intricately detailed; Check out the Elizabethan Classics Hand Shower Phone Tub Filler for a good example.

Finishes are: Chrome, Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Satin Nickel, Polished Nickel, Polished Brass, Antique Brass, Bronze, Stainless Steel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Platinum, Acrylic, and Copper.
