Faucets play an important role in how your bathroom looks and works. So you’ll want to think about design style and functionality as you start looking at your options.
When selecting a faucet for your lavatory sink, shower or Roman tub, consider first your design style. Are you creating a sleek modern space or a warm traditional one? Do you prefer single-handle or two-handle faucets? Do you have a pedestal sink or a vanity? Vessel sinks are growing in popularity and offer the opportunity for wall-mounted faucets.
The style and finish of your faucets will make a design statement, and you’ll want them to be in keeping with the overall look you have chosen for your bath. Stainless and chrome finishes are popular choices for contemporary spaces, while bronze and pewter finishes are well suited to more traditional designs. Asian influences are popular today, along with designs inspired by nature. And many faucet styles have coordinating accessories, so you can carry your style right down to the towel bars, toilet tissue holders, and even robe hooks.
You’ll also want to consider the functional features of available faucets, since these let you customize your bath experience around your lifestyle. If you bathe young children, a handshower is handy for rinsing hair. If you do a lot of gardening or other messy activities, an electronic faucet that comes on with just a touch is convenient and saves a lot of clean up. If showering is your bliss, a massaging showerhead and shower jets will create a personal spa experience. And if you have ADA or Universal Design needs, take advantage of the options offered by handshowers, temperature control valves, electronic faucets, and shower systems with built-in seats and safety bars.
Our friends at Delta Faucet offer bath faucets and accessories in a wide range of styles and finishes. Many feature their touch on, touch off Touch2O® Technology. Take a look at their In2ition® Two-In-One showerhead and handshower options. And Delta Faucet’s exclusive DIAMOND™ Seal Technology uses a valve with a tough diamond coating to bring you a faucet built to last up to 5 million uses – plus it keeps water inside the faucet out of contact with potential metal contaminants.
Whatever faucets you choose, keep your style and functional needs in mind and you’ll end up with a bathroom you’ll love using every day.
