It’s Time to Update Your Bathroom Faucet!
When it comes to redesigning bathrooms, sometimes the tiniest details can make a big difference. Updating your bathroom faucet can give your bathroom a refreshing new feel—plus, faucets should be replaced every 15-20 years.
When Should You Replace Your Bathroom Faucet?
If the handles or the spout itself leaks, it’s a good indicator to start looking for a new bathroom faucet. While leaky faucets can be fixed, you can save more money by updating them altogether when they’re a little older. If you notice any rust or mineral buildup, this could also be a sign that it’s time for a new faucet.
Bathroom Faucet Ideas
Deciding to update your bathroom faucet gives you the opportunity to begin reshaping your bathroom in a new way. Here are some design ideas to help you get started!
Different Faucet Handles
There are three main types of faucet handles: lever, blade, and cross. A lever handle is usually moved up and down for water flow and right and left for the temperature. A blade handle is similar to a lever, but the difference is its shape that resembles a blade. This can give a sleeker design to your bathroom faucet. Cross handles have an “x” shape and are twisted for water flow. If you want your bathroom faucet to have a single handle, you’ll most likely find more lever handle options. Double handle faucets can be found for all three types of handles.
New Faucet Finishes
A fun way to update your bathroom faucet is finding a new finish that will make it shine. There are a variety of finishes to choose from, such as brass, bronze, chrome, and stainless steel.
A brass finish is perfect if you want a golden look to your bathroom faucet. This type of finish is very durable and easy to clean. However, it is a little on the expensive side. On the other hand, a bronze finish is also durable and usually won’t show water spots or fingerprints.
If you want a more affordable option, chrome finishes are the way to go. Chrome is also rust resistant and easy to clean. Stainless steel finishes are also a great option, and they come in more color varieties than chrome.
Updated Faucet Style
There are always new types of styles for bathroom faucets, and you can find a unique variety made by so many different brands. Updating your bathroom faucet gives you the chance to explore new innovations from top designers. You could go modern or try out a timeless design. The possibilities are endless!
