What Is The Best Bathroom Faucet For Your Home

Replacing your bathroom faucet is a small change that can greatly impact the look and feel of your bathroom. New bathroom faucets are available in a variety of styles and finishes and are priced to suit any budget. If you’re doing a larger or full bathroom renovation, you can even pick other fixtures that will match your faucet perfectly. We’ll show you how to pick the type of bathroom faucet for your space in this guide.

Bathroom Faucet Types

When looking for a new bathroom faucet, it’s important to decide which type you need. There are a few different types including centreset, single-hole and widespread faucets that can be used on various types of sinks. Here are some of the differences:

Single Handle:

Single-handle bathroom faucets use one handle or lever to control both the hot and cold water flow. They can be on top of or beside the faucet itself, making this a great choice for smaller spaces.

Double Handles:

Double-handle bathroom faucets have a separate handle or lever for hot and cold water control and are ideal for larger bathrooms.

Lever Handles:

For a modern look, add a lever-style handle to your bathroom. They're one of the most common handle types and can even help to make turning the tap on and off easier.

Cross Handles:

Cross-handle bathroom faucets are exactly what they sound like, with cross – or “X”-shaped handles – for controlling water flow. They can help add a more traditional look to your bathroom sink area.

Bathroom Faucet Installation Fit

Depending on how many holes your countertop or sink has, you’ll need to find a faucet that fits over them. Single-hole faucets are best for smaller bathrooms. Two-hole faucets are most common on wall-mount or single handle faucets with a separate spout. Three holes can accommodate widespread, centreset and even a single-hole faucet with a deck plate.

Deck Plates:

If your faucet choice is smaller than the existing number of holes on your current sink or countertop, you can simply cover them with a deck plate. Deck plates are designed to cover unused centreset sink holes but cannot be used with widespread faucets.

Bathroom Faucet Popular Features

While types, fit and finishes are usually your most important choices, there are some other valuable options to consider when purchasing your bathroom faucet.

Touchless Bathroom Faucets:

Touchless bathroom faucets are activated by simply placing your hands underneath to start the water flow. This adds convenience and reduces bacteria build-up and transfer of germs.

Pop-Up Drains:

Pop-up drains can be opened and closed by pressing down on them in the sink basin. This makes it easy to fill and drain your sink when needed.

ADA Compliant:

ADA compliant faucets must be easily activated using only one hand, making them effortlessly usable by anyone with a disability.

Water Saving:

WaterSense faucets use less water and perform as well as – if not better than – traditional faucet models.
