How to Shop for Bathroom Sink Faucets
Ideas from http://www.us.kohler.com
Once you’ve chosen a sink, you’ll need to choose a faucet that fits– both aesthetically and functionally. Choices are:
Widespread faucets feature separate hot and cold handles that are independent from the spout. They can be mounted on the countertop or on sinks with three holes that fit 8″ to 16″ from one side to the other.
Compact and space efficient, centerset faucets fit sinks with three faucet holes that measure 4″ from one side to the other. The spout and handles make up one compact connected piece.
Single-handle faucets allow you to control water volume and temperature with a single handle – typically placed above the spout. They’re designed for sinks with a single hole or, when combined with an escutcheon plate, for sinks with three centerset holes.
Mounted on the wall behind the sink, wall-mount faucets work well with Vessels, wall-mount and under-mount sinks. They provide a streamlined look and help keep countertops clear.
