Faucet plumbing in your home has a significant effect on your quality of life. Important for cleaning, filling the tub, and doing dishes, faucets need to be durable and reliable to ensure you can start and end your day right. A great faucet is easy to find, but finding the one that's right for you is important to make sure your ideal faucet will suit your needs and your decor.

Bathroom faucets

Bathroom faucets are a necessity; there are certain things you must keep in mind when shopping for one. Existing plumbing capabilities and counter top space and accommodations are a crucial consideration when adding a faucet or changing an existing one. Some sinks come with pre-drilled holes, so make sure you get the right faucet for the corresponding sink.

There are different faucet sizes available: the conventional ones are 4″ center set faucets and 8″ wide spread style faucets. These two types of faucets require 3 holes in the counter top or sink in order to be installed properly. For a truly vintage look, install basin faucets that consist of separate hot and cold-water spouts.

The hallmark single-handle bathroom faucet saves space on the counter top because the hot and cold nozzle gauge and waterspout are all-inclusive and require only one drilled hole. Single handle faucets are also easier for children to use.

Vessel filler faucets are tall faucets that accommodate the unique vessel style sink; a vessel sink and faucet offers an original and trendy accent for your bathroom. Wall mount bathroom faucets can accommodate a vessel or conventional sink. They resemble the widespread bathroom style faucet, but mount on the wall; you will need plumbing available within your walls to accommodate a wall mount bathroom sink.

Remember to check out a full range of shower faucets, available in impressive modern designs with multiple water jets that turn the shower into a real luxury. Also check out tub and whirlpool faucets. Many tub faucets come with separate hand showers for a convenient way to bathe. There are even vintage styled clawfoot tub faucets. Bathroom faucets are available in styles from contemporary to traditional to Victorian in countless finishes to suit your personal style.

Kitchen faucets

Your kitchen faucets, like your bathroom faucets, should suit your kitchen décor themes as well as accommodate your available space, the kitchen sink, and current plumbing capabilities. Single handle kitchen faucets are the all-in-one fixture, with one hot and cold gauge and nozzle piece together; this fixture frees up space on the kitchen counter, and is also very convenient. Two-handle kitchen faucets need three drilled holes in the sink or countertop for the faucet's nozzle and separate hot and cold gauges.

The classic pull out kitchen spray faucet is great for all your rinsing and cleaning tasks; a retractable and flexible hose revolutionizes the kitchen faucet experience, and you may want nothing else but a pull out spray kitchen faucet. Wall mount kitchen faucets require plumbing within your walls to accommodate the faucet. Pot filler faucets are mounted near the range and do double duty as pot fillers and cold-water dispensers. If you like to entertain, remember to check out bar faucets for your home bar.

All of the above come in a range of styles and are offered in a countless selection of finishes to suit your kitchen's décor and your personal tastes.

Your faucets are essential to your way of living. Rely on top faucet brands such as Kohler, Moen, Delta, American Standard or Franke to bring the best into your home at a value that is unsurpassed.
