Picking a New Faucet for Your Bathroom

1 Hour Service for Plumbing in NYC and Manhattan

New York City apartments are known for their luxury and interior design. In most bathroom renovations, the most revered alteration is changing the faucets. Faucets are available in a myriad of designs, shapes, and finishes. They are the most used aspect of any bathroom and can give a washroom a more luxurious finish. There are a few things to consider before you purchase a new bathroom faucet.

Faucet Types:

Whether you are adding a new faucet to an existing sink, or buying a new ensemble, you will have to match the type of faucet to the opening in your sink.

Single-holed Faucets:  Single-holed faucets operate by combining the mixing handles and spout into a single unit that only needs one hole in the sink. If you are retrofitting an existing sink, with two or three holes, you will need to purchase a bottom plate to cover existing openings.  Single-hole faucets are appropriate for smaller bathrooms and sinks. For those who need to optimize space, it is best to purchase a one holed faucet.

Center-set Faucets:  Center Set faucets are affixed to three holed sinks. These faucets have two handles mounted on six-inch plates. You can find center-set faucets in most bathrooms, as they are compatible with most bathroom sinks.

Wall Mount Faucets: Wall mounted faucets are considered to be more luxurious than standard sinks. These freestanding sinks have gained popularity in modern themed homes and have long spouts that extend well past the drainage basin.  These sinks require professional installation. It is best to contact an emergency plumber in NYC to install this particular faucet.

The next criteria to consider are different types of faucet finishes.  As a result of protective clear coat sealers, faucets are able to come in a wide array of finishes. It is possible to purchase polished chrome, brass, ceramic, stainless steel, bronze, or even nickel faucets.  When deciding upon which finish to select it is important to remember these key factors:

Focus on the look, instead of the metal. If you have an affinity towards a specific finish, select it for your home. It is best to purchase something based off of aesthesis than metal types.

Make sure to coordinate and match your finishes. Towel racks, faucets, and lighting fixtures should all have the same finish.
