Choosing the Right Faucet

Trying to give your bathroom a quick facelift or a complete remodel? Choosing the right bathroom faucet can make or break the look. New accessories, floor mats and a fresh coat of paint will go unseen if the faucet is old and tarnished.

There are a few important style and finish factors to take into consideration before purchasing a faucet. Coordinate - Bathtub and sink faucets are often available in sets. Matching faucets pull the bathroom together, giving it a seamless look.

Here's a helpful guide to help you find the perfect faucet for your bathroom sink.

From an antique rustic pewter to a contemporary brushed-chrome, the finish options for faucets are endless. Here are some tips to help you choose the best finish for your faucet.
  • White faucets are popular in the kitchen and a children's bathroom, as they hide water spots and fingerprints better than chrome and brass. 
  • Any bronze (oil rubbed, brushed, rustic, etc.) and polished brass finish will bring a warm, vintage feel to the bathroom.
  • Looking for a touch of class without the clash? A combination chrome-and-brass finish on a lever-handle gooseneck faucet gives a chic look while adding the flexibility for accessories in either finish. 
  • Bridge faucets in a satin-nickel finish make the most elegant statement, but be sure this compliments the remainder bathroom.
Choosing the right style and finish for your faucet never looked so good!
