Spruce Up Your Bathroom Style with New Faucets

Spruce Up Your Bathroom Style with New Faucets

Many people have a bathroom that is not only outdated but also does not match their décor. A rundown bathroom can be a complex problem for homeowners who want to renovate the space and make it more pleasing to the eye. One of the most important things you should do when updating your bathroom is installing new faucets. 

As you enter the bathroom, it's often the first thing you see. It needs to be functional but also stylish and attractive. This article will provide tips on how to spruce up your bathroom style with new faucets.

Types of Faucets

Bathroom faucets and hardware have come a long way from the standard single-handle faucet that almost every bathroom has. Now you can find a wide variety of faucets, hardware, and accessories to give your bathroom style and function. New types include center sets with two handles attached to a spout, wall-mounted faucets, pull-out sprayers, and traditional units with separate handles.

Different types of faucets include:

  • Widespread - The most common faucet usually has a handle and spout attached to one piece and is perfect for controlling water temperature and flow.
  • Single-Handle - Single-handle faucets contain only one handle used to control both hot and cold water temperatures.
  • Two-Handle - Two-handle faucets offer the best for controlling hot and cold water. These faucets have separate handles so you can mix the perfect temperature for your bath or shower.
  • Center Sets - Center sets are widespread units with separate hot and cold handles mounted on the spout instead of a handle attached to the wall. You can use two handles for temperature control or one handle to control water flow while the other controls water temperature.
  • Wall-Mounted - Wall-mounted units are another trendy option for your bathroom. These stylish fixtures allow you to mount the faucet on your wall for a look that is both sleek and modern.
  • Pull-Out Sprayers - Pull-out sprayers are perfect for washing children or pets because you can extend them out of your tub or shower so you can easily spray them down. They are also great for cleaning the tub without having to get in.

If your current faucets look a little rough around the edges, it's time to replace them with new ones. You can find styles that go along with the décor of your bathroom to update your shower's look. The faucets are available in different finishes and come with all the hardware and accessories needed for installation.

Benefits of Installing New Faucets

New faucets have several benefits that can improve the look and function of your bathroom.

  1. You won't have to worry about corroded or broken knobs and handles. These wear out over time and need to be replaced along with the faucet as a whole.
  2. If you install new hardware, your water will begin to flow more efficiently with better pressure meaning you can use less energy and water.
  3. New faucets add a fresh and updated look to your bathroom. You can find styles that go along with the décor of your bathroom.

How to Install New Faucets

Installing new faucets takes some time because you have to turn off your water main, remove the old faucet, attach the hoses to your hot and cold water lines, turn on the water, and test for leaks. You can do all this work by yourself or hire a professional plumber if you are unsure how to do the job.

Tips for Choosing the Right Type of Faucet for Your Needs

The most important factors to consider when selecting a new faucet are how many holes you have in your sink and which style will best suit your décor.

If you have a single hole in your sink, you will only need a widespread faucet and spout to complete the installation. If you have three holes in your sink, you can choose from various options, such as a two-handle faucet. However, if you have extra holes, you can install other fixtures such as soap dispensers and towel bars.

Possibly the most essential factor for choosing the right faucet is what matches your home decor or your style preference. Bathroom faucets come in different finishes and styles, so you can choose one that will go best with your environment.

Popular finishes include stainless steel, polished nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, antique brass, satin nickel, and copper. Other factors for choosing the right faucet include the rate of flow, shape, and texture.
