Some bathrooms have both a tub and a shower, some only have one or the other, and some have neither. But one thing every bathroom has in common is the sink.
When you’re working on changing some of the details of your bathroom, you might want to get rid of that same old boring faucet.
WHAT ARE YOUR CONCERNS?
There are so many different styles and finishes out there on the market. It all depends on what you’re aiming for in terms of style and function. Here are our suggestions for faucets that may work for your bathroom, depending on your needs and concerns.
- Ease of Cleaning: Some faucet materials are easier to clean than others. Natural brass, for example, avoids oxidations, which means less frequent cleaning than, say, a chrome-and-brass finish. In addition, a wall mounted faucet is a great way to avoid having buildup at the base of a faucet.
- Germs: A hands-free motion-activated faucet is the way to go if you want to avoid germs.
- Functionality: Take your pick. It’s easy to find a faucet that fits your needs, you just need to ensure you have the right faucet type. A single-hole faucet, center-set faucet (with three holes), or widespread mouth with three separate pieces may be the best choice for you.
- Style: Check magazines, online images, and your friend’s homes to find a sleek faucet that’s the perfect fit for your design vision!
CAN YOU DO IT YOURSELF?
We don’t recommend it. Even if you’re only making small changes to the layout of your bathroom, it’s better to call in a plumber to handle the installation. This way, you can have pipes moved around as needed, if necessary.
And a faucet that is professionally installed is less likely to leak and need repairs in the next few years. You can feel confident water flows out smoothly and that the installation is clean when you call a professional plumber to help with your bathroom remodel.
