Lavatory Faucets

Get all info you'll need on lavatory faucets, and get ready to install stylish, long-lasting faucets in your bath space.

Knowing your options for bathroom lavatory faucets will help you make better decisions with your bath remodeling project.

Whether you're installing a brand-new bathroom or redesigning an existing one, exploring the full range of lavatory faucets available is a key element of the planning phase. These fixtures' constant use and prominent place in bathroom designs make it important to give them plenty of attention.

Quality is essential when it comes to lavatory faucets. Solid brass construction will greatly increase the life span and overall durability of a faucet. Plated metal is a step down from solid brass, but will still last. You'll likely save in the long run by investing in a quality lavatory faucet construction now, as opposed to paying a plumber later.

There are four standard configurations for lavatory faucets: 8-inch (widespread), 4-inch, single-hole and wall-mount. Except for wall-mount faucets, all of these can be mounted on the deck of the sink. Measuring the span between the centers of the two outermost faucet holes in your sink will determine which type of faucet it can accommodate. If you have a vessel or undermount sink, a wall faucet is an option—and wall faucets can also add a distinctive visual flair.

In terms of finish, oil-rubbed bronze for lavatory faucets works well with traditional styles, whereas polished nickel is commonly used in modern, contemporary and traditional designs.
