Sink faucets may be one of the most overlooked and presumably small details of a bathroom renovation. However, a bathroom faucet can be the perfect, functional piece to showcase the style of the homeowner. Available in a number of different styles, designs and colours, it can actually be much more tricky to decide which is the best addition for your bathroom. With a myriad of faucet options that can complete your space, it’s helpful to browse through the main types to choose from to help make your selection process much easier.
To give you a sense of what bathroom faucet finish design types and styles are available, here is a look at the four main types of bathroom faucets you could choose from.
1. Bridge Faucet
The bridge faucet is a perfect crossover between traditional, old-fashioned design and modern technology. Bridge sink faucet design includes a lever and faucet branch off from one singular part of the faucet. The design has two holes implemented in the bathroom countertop instead of three. Bridge faucets are a popular design for undermount sinks. The combination offers the bathroom owner a sense of uniqueness and individuality as well as functionality. This type of faucet is often mounted onto the bathroom countertop, which helps keep the bathroom sink area easier to clean and far more hygienic.
Centre-set bathroom faucets have basins with three-holes installed. This type of bathroom faucet has handles, which are often four inches apart and include a spout, two handles on either side of the unit. Some different centre-faucet designs have two handles mounted onto the plate of the bathroom sink. Available in a variety of different designs and finishes, centre-set faucets are a popular choice for homeowners that want to portray a simple, timeless and sleek design.
3. Single-Handle Faucet
Single-handle, or single-lever faucets are designed with a single handle that controls both the water temperature and the water pressure simultaneously. This type of bathroom sink faucet is arguably the most common and popular for both kitchens and bathrooms. Most single-lever faucets have just one or two sinkholes, however, some faucets do have additional holes and come equipped with a mounting plate to cover said holes.
Wall-mounted faucets are commonly attached to the bathroom wall as opposed to being attached to the sink or faucet counter. This type of bathroom faucet commonly extends over the sink and is available in a variety of different shapes, sizes, colours and finishes. Many individuals choose the wall-mounted sink fixture because of its clean, sleek appearance, which is stylish and modern. The primary advantage of a wall-mount faucet is that it also helps keep the sink area clean and hygienic similar to the bridge faucet.
