What Kind Do You Want?

When it comes to buying a bathroom faucet, it is pivotal to know the options available to you, as not all of them work with every sink, so you need to know which one will fit your sink the best.

  • Centerset: made for sinks with three hole configurations and have two handles, spaced 4 inches apart
  • Single-hole: can have one or two handles; an escutcheon plate is needed for sinks with more than one-hole
  • Vessel: taller necks compatible with vessel sinks
  • Wall-mounted: used for above-the-counter or free-standing sinks that need one with a longer spout
  • Widespread: comes with a spout and two handles, spaced between 6 and 16 inches apart

Construction Matters

All faucets have valves that control the flow of water through the spout. The quality of the valve determines how reliable and durable the faucet is. Here are some of the best valve options.

  • Compression-valve: has a stem that opens and closes the passageway
  • Ball: a rotating ball regulates the amount of water that passes through. Metal balls are more durable than plastic balls.
  • Cartridge: use rubber O-rings in a cylinder-shaped cartridge to control water flow. They’re even more reliable when the cartridge is brass.
  • Ceramic discs: two ceramic discs move against each other in a chopping motion, either blocking water or allowing it through. The discs create a watertight seal.

Tips for Buying a Faucet

Here are some things to consider when shopping for a bathroom faucet:

  1. What size do you need? One size does not fit all, and you want to get one that complements your sink. A center-set will work best on smaller sinks, while a widespread would be better suited for bigger sinks.
  2. What are your everyday needs? Consider how you will be using the bathroom. If children are going to be using it, for example, you want something that is durable but easy-to-use.
  3. What technology to do you want? Do you want hands-free? Or touch-sensitive? Do you want one with lead-free construction? One that’s easy to clean or install? Knowing the answers to these questions will save time in your search.
