There are four standard configurations for lavatory faucets: 8-inch (widespread), 4-inch, single-hole and wall-mount. Except for wall-mount faucets, all of these can be mounted on the deck of the sink. Measuring the span between the centers of the two outermost faucet holes in your sink will determine which type of faucet it can accommodate. If you have a vessel or undermount sink, a wall faucet is an option—and wall faucets can also add a distinctive visual flair.
If water spots drive you crazy, matte finishes can solve the problem. Also look for faucets featuring physical vapor deposition, also called PVD, the latest technology for bonding a finish to the standard brass faucet. With PVD, the finish becomes an integral part of the faucet itself, resisting tarnish, scratches and corrosion and keeping the faucet looking good longer.
To avoid that, Barbara says to blend your finishes with other items in the room. Mixing and matching the finishes can work as long as they blend well, she says.
Faucet finish is an important design element that once was overlooked. But new technology and the public is widespread appreciation for the overall look in the kitchen and bath have made the faucet an important feature. Any sink in the house becomes another opportunity to introduce a new design element.
