Selecting The Best Faucet For Your Sink

There are a number of variables to consider when choosing sink faucets. Take a look at the variety of finishes, styles, and more.

Faucets in our bathrooms and kitchens offer a clean and stylish method to wash our hands, food, and dishes. They are a functional element but it doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Nowadays, manufacturers provide a diverse collection of designs and finishes, making it challenging to decide which one would look best in your house. When choosing a faucet, consider the maintenance requirements, durability, and suitability.

Let’s take a look at the variety of finishes, styles, and more when it comes to selecting a faucet for your sink.

Faucet Finishes

There are numerous attractive finishes available when it comes to faucets, such as:

  • Copper
  • Nickel
  • Brass
  • Chrome
  • Pewter
  • Stainless Steel
  • And others

Each one is appealing since it has unique qualities and aesthetics. And of course, they can come as polished, brushed, matte, flat, or burnished. Some finishes are easier to keep clean than others. 

Be sure to consult with your designer before making your choice, and give yourself enough time to look over the hardware and other materials you’ll need so you can find something that complements the faucet you’ve chosen. It’s fine to mix and match different finishes, they just need to work together.

Faucet Styles

Farmhouse, modern, minimal, and even vintage faucet design styles are currently available from manufacturers. Consider the style of your home before choosing to make sure the designs won’t clash. You probably don’t want a modern faucet if you are trying to create a vintage feel in your home.

Do you want separate handles for hot and cold water a single handle? Some faucets have features like a pull-down sprayer and even touchless options. Then there are the styles of handles like levers and ​​cross handles. If the faucet and its handles are going to be used by children, consider what would be easiest for them. Consider the faucets’ reach as well as the height. Think about the function of the faucet to determine the style you need.

Faucet Durability

As a homeowner, you value durability in practically any feature. You don’t want to invest money in something only to have to replace it after a few years. Due to mineral accumulation from the water, it is advised that you replace your faucet every ten years or so, although, with proper maintenance, they can last longer. 

Brass tops the list of materials for durability. Although they cost a little more, brass faucets are less likely to rust or leak.

Keep in mind that replacing a faucet is not too difficult, so you can opt for a different material that might not last as long but will give your bathroom the aesthetic you want. There is also the possibility of using the warranty that some faucets may have, which may cover an exchange after a number of years.
