New bathroom remodels can be a lot of work. However, they are also an excellent opportunity to pick out new hardware for the sink and bathtub, or walk in shower. Choosing new bathroom taps is a very important step as it can add or take away from the overall design of the bathroom. A roman tub faucet is almost always a single hole faucet, but there are many different options beyond the faucet itself. When looking to buy single hole lavatory faucets, there are many factors a consumer needs to consider. How large is the space where the basin taps will be placed? Is an additional side sprayer necessary? How many tap handles are desired? What type of finish should the tap be? Finally, what type of price range are you working within?
Choosing extra options for a faucet may seem overwhelming, as there are so many options. The easiest way to determine if you want or need any additional features is to evaluate how often and for what purpose the taps and bathroom sinks will be used. Is this the only bathroom in the home? If so, you may want to consider upgrading some features. If there is a second bathroom in the home, consider what that bathroom offers before deciding upon features for these new faucets.
Faucets are available in a number of different finishes and they should match the existing hardware in the bathroom and fit in with the other bathroom decorations. Some available options are oil-rubbed bronze, traditional polished chrome, brushed nickel, polished nickle, and antique copper. Another feature to consider are what type of faucet spout to choose. The spout should coordinate with the other hardware in the lavatory.
Price range is obviously a factor when choosing a new faucet. Prices can range anywhere from 100 to 1,000, but there are many quality faucets in the 200 to 500 price area. Be sure to consider all these features and the style of your bathroom before finalizing your faucet choices.
