An outdated bathroom can be one of the main reasons a home is passed over by potential buyers. Remodeling a bathroom can be a big undertaking, but with the right remodeling partners a renovation can be simple and enjoyable.
There are certain items in our homes that we take for granted since we use them every day. The bathroom sink faucet can easily be one of these. In the overall scheme of a bathroom remodel, the sink faucet might seem like a subordinate detail, but it’s design can help set the tone for the entire space.
The sink faucet can be a subtle accent matching the rest of your bathroom’s design, or it can be the feature that stands out and breathes new life into your bathroom. You’ll be amazed at the broad range of styles, finishes, and state-of-the-art functions that are available today. Whatever you are looking for in your sink faucet, you can find it in our showrooms.

Selecting A Bathroom Sink Faucet
Are you simply updating your bathroom sink or planning the process of an entire bathroom remodel? If you’re focused only on the sink, your choices will be limited to what fits in your existing setup. You will want the style of your sink faucet to match with the style of the rest of the bathroom.
On the other hand, if you are redoing the entire bathroom, or are changing out all of your bathroom fixtures, the possibilities are endless. Make sure, though, to have an idea of the design of the other elements you will be incorporating in the bathroom like the shower, tub, and toilet. Here are a few of the style choices you can choose from in our wide selection of bathroom sink faucets.

Bathroom sinks generally consist of one to three holes that are in the rim, deck, countertop, or wall above the sink. It’s important to select the right faucet type that will work with where you are planning to install it.
After you have determined where your faucet will be installed for your sink, you should make sure to measure the exact distance between the center of the far-left hole to the center of the far-right hole. This way, you are sure to get the right product to fit your sink the first time around.
The following are the different types of sink configurations and the faucet types that are applicable to each:
- If there is one hole in the sink or counter, a single-hole bathroom sink faucet is needed.
- If there are three holes that spread four inches apart (from the center of the left hole to the center of the right hole), a four-inch minispread or centerset faucet will best fit your sink application.
- If there are three holes that spread eight inches apart (from the center of left hole to the center of the right hole), an eight-inch widespread faucet will be your best bet.
