Installing a new bathroom faucet is a quick and easy way to change the look of a bathroom without spending a lot of money. However, some people may be a bit overwhelmed at all of the options available when they start to shop for a new one.
According to Kohler.com, there are three steps that make choosing a new bathroom faucet simple. First, it's important to choose one that is compatible with your current plumbing. Faucets are available in single-hole, centerset, wall-mount or widespread styles. Once it's determined what type is needed, it's also important to measure how far apart the holes are.
The next step, according to the faucet manufacturer, is to choose how many handles the faucet will have as well as the handle style. It's important to think about who will be using the faucet on a daily basis when making this decision. Kids, for example, may have a harder time operating a faucet with two handles and may be better able to use a lever handle.
The final step involves choosing the finish. There are many faucet finishes available to fit in with any bathroom décor including polished chrome, brushed chrome, polished nickel, brushed nickel, brushed bronze, gold and oil-brushed bronze. Choosing one that complements your bathroom accessories can help to make the room seem more cohesive and provide a finished look.
