At R & R Bathrooms, we can help you find the right accessories to make your bathroom remodel spectacular.

Types of Faucets For Your Bathroom

There are three things you should always consider when you choose bathroom fixtures style, needs and budget. There are several types of faucets to choose from, so be sure that you have the right setup for the one you want.

Single-hole faucets. A single-hole faucet is just what the name implies; it requires only one hole drilled into the sink. This type of faucet has a single lever to operate the water flow. This type of faucet is great for a small sink in a powder room.

Center-set faucets. This is a very common type of bathroom faucet that fits a standard three-hole configuration. These faucets have either a single or two levers or handles that are mounted on a six-inch plate. These faucets are great for many single- and double-sink bathrooms.

Widespread mounts. These types of faucets consist of three separate piece and can be large, with up to eight inches between the handles, or a smaller mini-spread that fits a standard four-inch configuration. These mounts are great for larger bathrooms as are often oversized.

Wall-mount faucets. Along with free-standing faucets for vessel sinks, these faucets are becoming very popular. However, you should be aware that they require long spouts so they must have overhead clearance. Additionally, when you choose a bathroom fixture, you should think of it as the finishing touch to a total system, not a standalone choice.

Keep It Simple—And Affordable!

One danger in choosing a great new bathroom faucet is breaking your budget. Remember that there are often great options in several price ranges, so do not feel you have to spend your entire plumbing budget on a single fixture!
