WHAT YOUR FAUCET IS MADE OF
Faucets are usually made of hardened metal. However, sometimes they are made using alternative materials, such as marble, glass, and other composite materials. The most common raw material used to make faucets is brass. In addition to brass, faucets can also be made of other fine metals, such as stainless steel or bronze.
THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING
Before you breakout the drill, you need to consider a couple of important factors:
Knowing the Dimension
Using a ruler or tape measurer to determine the actual size of the faucet before starting to find the perfect faucet. Knowing the correct size is a key step in achieving a balanced finish. Generally, a large space is more suitable for a larger sink, but sometimes a small sink looks good in a mismatched space. Finding the right balance between the countertop and the sink is an important aspect of designing a great bathroom, so before you choose the sink of your dreams, be sure to consider all options.
Quality & Feel
Bathroom faucets are one of the most commonly used items in your bathroom, so when you choose your next faucet, quality and durability are paramount. Although all modern faucets have a certain appeal, don't be fooled by the charming sinks that cannot withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. High-quality faucets are made up of reliable fittings and more durable valves, which can prevent leakage or noise after the faucet is worn and break down. When you are trying to find the right faucet, please do your best to evaluate the quality and durability before the final purchase.
Styling your Design
When considering buying a new faucet, choosing the style and design of the bathroom is the most important step. The large curves and delicate silhouettes complement the modern design and modern atmosphere. However, taps with a corner and a traditional appearance are more suitable for Art Deco style.
Consider how your new faucet will match the mirror and countertop style, the whole bathroom. Think about how it accentuates paint colors and existing decorations. Also, keep in mind that classic-looking designs usually have two handles, so if your plumping has been set up for single-hole installation, you may need to adjust your design.
No matter which style you decide to adopt, make sure it is the style you really like. After all, this will be one of the most commonly used hardware you have. Choose something that will evolve with the trend and maintain a lasting style in your home.
Choosing a finish for your faucet is almost as important as choosing a style. Whether you choose a classic polished brass finish or a more modern finish, there are more choices than ever before when choosing a finish. Chrome, stainless steel, satin gold, brushed nickel, antique brass, and matte black are just a few available options. Black faucets are a great way to add beautiful details to the bathroom. Some materials also have heat and oxidation resistance, so it's best to be familiar with the available options.
Faucets with high-quality finishes will last longer and will be more durable over time. If you are looking for a more cost-effective material, then your best choice may be stainless steel, especially if you have hard water in your home's water supply system. Stainless steel has natural resistance to mineral deposits, so it is easier to clean and maintain.
Most faucet installations can be performed by the homeowner. Completing the installation yourself is a great way to reduce costs and keep your final price below your budget. However, making mistakes can be very costly, so make sure to consult a professional before you get in over your head.
