When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, not even the smallest details should be overlooked. While your bathroom faucet certainly isn't a minuscule accessory, it doesn't always receive as much consideration as the vanity, countertop, or flooring style. Yet, a stylish bathroom faucet can go a long way when it comes to creating a luxury bath. While it's important to select a design and finish that complements the bathroom sink and vanity, it's also important to be aware of the different types of luxury bathroom faucets to choose from.
Here, we'll take a closer look at the various types of faucets that can elevate your bathroom remodel.
Types of High-End Bathroom Faucets
Centerset Bathroom Faucets
Centerset faucets are typically centered between two handles, one for hot water and the other for cold water. These two handles are typically about four inches apart from the faucet on each side, which can provide an elegant look and feel. Some centerset faucets are installed directly onto the countertop or vanity, while others are mounted onto a plate that is installed over the vanity.
Gooseneck Bathroom Faucets
Gooseneck faucets may be more synonymous with the kitchen than they are with other areas of the home, but they're beginning to trend in bathrooms, especially in larger bathrooms where their enhanced presence doesn't appear out of character. As the name implies, gooseneck faucets are those that extend longer and with a rounded arc over the faucet. Some can measure more than eight inches in length. Gooseneck faucets are often centerset, with hot and cold handles on each side.
Spread-Fit Bathroom Faucets
Also known as a widespread faucet, these are similar to centerset faucets in that they're usually installed in three holes in the vanity – one for the faucet and two for the handles. However, one big differentiator is that spread-fit faucets usually have extended space between the faucet and the handles – sometimes up to 10 inches. In some cases, you can mount the handles off to the side of the faucet, leading to a more customizable look and feel in the bathroom. Spread-fit faucets are typically installed in larger bathrooms where there's more space to work with or if homeowners want to fully customize the bathroom.
Low-Profile Bathroom Faucets
Low-profile, or low arc, faucets are designed in a way that disperses water closer to the sink than other types of faucets. For this reason, they're less likely to create any spray or splashing in the bathroom. They are ideal for bathrooms where there's limited countertop space.
Single-Handle Bathroom Faucets
Single-handle faucets are exactly what they sound like – they're sinks with just one handle instead of two. While they're often more popular in the kitchen or laundry room, they're a good option for smaller bathrooms or bathrooms with smaller vanities.
Wall-Mounted Bathroom Faucets
These faucets are installed into the wall or backsplash above the sink rather than attached to the sink itself. They offer a clean appearance and are more contemporary in style. They can also help homeowners keep the sink and vanity cleaner.
