Handles

Bathroom faucets come in different styles to give the final touch to your bathroom, and to help you save money. One thing to consider is the number of handles on your faucet. Single-handle faucets are great if you are the multitasking type. You can change the flow and temperature while brushing your teeth, washing your face and even rinsing the sink itself. Two-handle bathroom sink faucets, which especially come with lever type handles, are great for kids and just about anybody with mobility issues in their hands and fingers. Plus, it gives your bathroom a classic look.

Installation

  • Modern bathroom faucets are available in single-hole, center set, wall mount and widespread styles. If you already have a sink in your bathroom, make sure you’re looking for a faucet that is compatible.

  • Count the number of holes, measure how far apart the holes are, and choose a faucet that will fit accordingly. Bathroom sink and faucet compatibility is a very factor to keep in mind when you are selecting a faucet style.

  • Vessel style sinks need to be matched with either a faucet with tall handles and a high-arc spout or a wall mounted type faucet. Wall mounted faucets come in really trendy styles. The single-handle model is also both modern and unique.

  • Bathroom sinks today are complemented with practical solutions such as the Moen soap dispenser which allow you to refill it with up to 20 ounces of liquid hand wash or dishwashing liquid.
