There is such a wide range of bathroom faucets on the market today. I bet you are confused and unsure of which one you want or what faucet would look best in your space. Well let’s start with the different styles of faucets so you have an idea of the uses and looks.
Perhaps you have a small space and can’t fit a large vanity. You might want to select a single hole faucet. They are perfect for bathroom designs that don’t take up too much counter space. You can choose a beautiful single hole faucet while making a statement.
Wall Mounted Faucet
A wall mounted faucet definitely draws in the audience. There are so many beautiful ones to choose from that create a playful old-fashioned vibe to your bathroom. Maybe you are looking for something unique to make your bathroom stand out, or your design is somewhat a farmhouse design. The wall mounted faucet would fit perfectly.
Modern and Sleek
If you are looking to create a modern vibe, you can choose a flat sleek faucet. Make sure you are choosing all similar shapes to make it feel unified and sleek. The flat sleek faucets brings a clean, simple but modern feel to a bathroom.
Exposed pipes are one of my favorite faucets. Typically, when you have a smaller bathroom you would use a wall mounted sink with exposed pipes. This will help the bathroom seem bigger. By using a pipe-style faucet in a finish similar to the actual pipes below, it makes the design look like an intentional statement. Most industrial bathrooms add character by exposing the pipes.
Tall faucets can be absolutely stunning. A great thing about a tall faucet is that it has a lot of versatility. Not only are they visually appealing, but they allow for more room fit beneath them. Keep in mind they do take up a lot of space.
These are just a few of the different style faucet options you have to choose from. You can find these and many more at Plumbtile.

There are many reasons why families decide to renovate their homes. Often times it’s because they can’t afford a bigger purchase. It may also be that they already have a well established life in their community and can’t seem to leave a place they’ve known and loved for so long. Love your home and just can’t see living anywhere else, the kitchen or bathroom just needs a face lift or even the flooring needs to be replaced. Whatever the reason, there are ways to assess the home, see how your family has outgrown it and implement change to adapt to your growing family’s needs.
