You have these popular types to look at:
They typically fit sinks with three holes. As the name suggests, they "bridge" the faucet body with the two side handles. They can be either single-piece or have separate bodies for the faucet and two side handles.
Bridge faucets are meant for the top-mount and under-mount styles of sinks. Their benefits:
- They are installed on the sink counter, which makes cleaning easy and hygienic
- The two handles offer efficient water-flow apart from its temperature control
Bridge sink faucets have a period look and feel, with curved bodies and cross handles. They will suit your bathroom with traditional décor. Avoid them if you have a sink of contemporary design.
These faucets are installed on the sink counter and not on its body. They can be either single, double, or 3-hole type. They have either a long, arc-shaped faucet body or a protruding angular one, and they can be operated with cross handles or knobs.
Deck-mounted faucets will match both the classic and contemporary bath decors. The wide range of designs makes them even more versatile, so buy it with confidence. They will not be an eyesore in your bathroom.
They are the high-tech and high-end handles that have a touch-less operation. Fitted with motion sensors, the faucet releases controlled water-flow when it senses your hand under it, and stops the flow as you withdraw it. Advanced models have microchips to program the flow and temperature.
Touchless sink faucets are ultra-modern fittings. They will find a home in bathrooms with other gadgets such as a digital shower, voice-activated mirror, or an electronic defogger. The sinks to go with them are white rectangular, oval, or round ones.
Tip: If Eco solutions are important to you, opt for this handle since it turns off water-flow when you recede your hands.
These are faucets designed for vessel types of sinks that are placed on the sink countertop. They are mostly single-body faucets with either single or double handles. Their installation is concealed behind the vessel sink.
Vessel sink faucets usually have a tall, gracefully curved body. They will match bathrooms and sinks with white elegance. For enhanced aesthetic, opt for a finish that contrasts the sink, for example, a black faucet for a white or marble vessel sink.
