Faucet Fun: Designs and Trends in Bathroom Faucets

Faucet Fun: Designs and Trends in Bathroom Faucets


You probably don’t think about how many times a day you touch your bathroom faucet. But if you stop and add it up, you’ll quickly realize that your bathroom faucet is a big part of your day. That’s why – when choosing one – it’s critical to pay attention to quality, design and detail.


Here are three design tips that make choosing your faucet fun and simple.


1. Quality counts!


Sticker-shock for faucets is not uncommon. But quality really does matter when choosing a faucet. The additional cost of having a plumber replace a cheap and faulty faucet a year or two down the road will much exceed the cost of investing in a quality faucet from the get go.


2. Scout out design trends


Your faucet should match your overall design look and feel for your bathroom – be it traditional, modern, or vintage. Generally speaking, there are two places you can mount your faucet: on your sink deck or on the wall. Each will provide a different aesthetic.


Design trends that are hot right now include sleek and modern looks, with unique on/off options. Also trendy are faucet designs that gain inspiration from nature. This includes unique shapes, finishes, and features which mimic natural looks and lines.


Scout out the trends before you take the plunge.


3. Focus on your finish


There are many design choices when it comes to the finish of your faucet. As a rule of thumb, always choose a finish that is durable enough to handle the daily traffic in your bathroom. Some options you have for finishes include:



  • Polished chrome – this is a classic finish that coordinates nicely with all types of decor and styles. It looks particularly stunning in a vintage bathroom, but it also fits contemporary styles.



  • Polished nickel – similar to polished chrome, polished nickel is a very versatile option. It offers a sophisticated look that pairs well with elegant finishes.



  • Brushed nickel – this finish has a distinctive warmth and elegance to it. It looks wonderful against white, granite, and slate countertops and backsplashes. Also, since it has a matte finish, brushed nickel tends not to show water-spots or fingerprints as much, so it is good in high traffic bathrooms.



  • Bronze – this is another classic finish that is versatile. Often found accompanying traditional decor, it can also be stylish and unexpected twist in a modern, sleek bathroom. Bronze comes in a variety of shades, from a lighter colour to a richer, darker tone.



  • Hammered nickel – this finish can be unexpected and unique. It is provides a rough, rustic feel that looks wonderful in a Craftsman or Mission style bathroom.



  • Black – a black faucet is a fun and dramatic choice. It looks great against most colours and provides a statement piece in a modern, playful bathroom.


The sky is the limit when it comes to bathroom faucets. Keep these design tips in mind and your faucet selection can be fun and simple. Enjoy!
