Bathroom Faucets in Kansas City Metro
The bathroom faucet is a key element in your bathroom design. Selecting the right bathroom faucet can be a daunting task. The bathroom remodeling experts at Mission Kitchen and Bath have extensive knowledge about bathroom faucets and can help guide you toward the perfect faucet for your bathroom as well as install it. There are several factors to take into consideration when selecting a new bathroom faucet including faucet configuration, mounting style, handle configuration, bathroom style, available finishes, and your budget.
All of the styles and configurations of bathroom faucets available can make it overwhelming. The bathroom remodeling experts at Mission Kitchen and Bath will be more than happy to work with you and make recommendations for selecting the best bathroom faucet for your bathroom remodeling project. Mission Kitchen and Bath can also recommend the best places in Kansas City to purchase your new bathroom faucet.
If you have already purchased a sink, the bathroom faucet you select must fit into the holes in the sink. If you have not purchased a sink, you have more flexibility. The two faucet configurations are widespread and centerset. Widespread bathroom faucets have the handles separate from the spout. With centerset bathroom faucets the handles and spout are combined into a single piece.
There are two types of mounting styles. Deck-mounted bathroom faucets, which are installed on the sink deck, are the most common, but wall-mounted bathroom faucets are gaining popularity. Wall-mounted bathroom faucets work great with wall-mounted and vessel-type sinks and free up sink space.
There are two types of handle configurations: single-handle and double-handle. Single-handle bathroom faucets are easy to use, offer a sleek design, and work well with smaller sinks. Double-handle bathroom faucets offer greater control over the ratio of hot and cold water output.
Your new bathroom faucet should also match the style of your bathroom. For example, if you have a modern bathroom, you will want to select a more modern style faucet. You’ll also want to make sure it coordinates with the style of your sink and vanity and other bathroom fixtures. If your bathroom has a bathtub, consider selecting a bathroom faucet from a collection that has a matching tub faucet.
Multiple Finishes Available
Mission Kitchen and Bath recommends selecting a bathroom faucet with either PVD coating or chrome plating as these coatings are highly durable and scratch resistant. PVD coatings are available in a variety of finishes, including stainless steel, brass, nickel, chrome, and bronze. Again, consider the style of your bathroom when selecting a finish.
Perhaps one of the most important factors will be your budget. Bathroom faucets are available in seemingly endless options at all price points, from budget bathroom faucets to premium luxury bathroom faucets. You don’t have to spend a lot to get a quality bathroom faucet, however Mission Kitchen and Bath does recommend that you avoid purchasing a bathroom faucet with plastic interior components as they do not tend to hold up well to heavy usage.
