Depending on your budget, style preference and sink size, you have a few different choices when it comes to the type of bath faucet that works best for you. These include center-set, wall-mount and widespread options, as well as single-hole faucets that combine the spout and handle into one unit.
Center-set: A popular and least expensive option, this design combines the handles and spout on a base that is mounted to the sink. They are easy to install and work well with smaller basins or non-traditional sinks, such as vessel sinks.
Widespread: Also known as "mini widespread" or "mini center-set" designs, these offer greater flexibility in placement and come with hot and cold water valves that are separate from the spout. They're usually at least 8 inches wide and often use unique escutcheon plates that are sized to the individual handle and spout base, rather than a one-piece escutcheon for all three parts.
Brushed Nickel: This durable metal faucet is a great choice for traditional, contemporary or luxury homes that want to add a touch of class without breaking the bank. Its sleek finish is a good match for a variety of fixtures, and it's compatible with three-hole set-ups, making installation a breeze.
