Single-hole faucets are a great fit for many sink styles. These faucets take up very little space and mount directly into a single hole. In both bathrooms and kitchens, single-hole faucets continue to be a popular style.
For homeowners interested in installing a new single-hole faucet, it can be hard to know which of the many options on the market to choose from. Whether it’s time to upgrade an existing single-hole faucet or a new faucet is being installed in tandem with a new sink, the following quick guide will help make the process of picking a faucet simple.
1. Determine Your Bathroom or Kitchen’s Style
Too often, faucets and other fixtures are a second thought. But, while they are small, faucets play a big role in the overall style and design of a kitchen or bathroom space.
For this reason, they should be chosen in conjunction with the rest of the room’s style. Before simply adding a single-hole faucet to one’s cart, spend time determining what style the room is aiming for.
Examples might include:
- Ornate and elegant
- Modern and sleek
- Simple and traditional
By taking the time to first determine the bathroom or kitchen’s style, homeowners can better match a faucet to the intended motif.
2. Pick a Matching Finish
After determining the overall style of the room, the next step is to filter single-hole faucet options by finish. While not all fixtures in a bathroom or kitchen need to be an identical match, it’s helpful to match warm finishes with warm finishes and cool with cool.
A quick guide to finish tones is as follows:
- Warm: Brass, oil-rubbed bronze, copper, gold
- Cool: Polished chrome, stainless steel, brushed nickel
Keep in mind that a matte black finish is a neutral option, which makes it a good pair for either cool or warm finishes.
3. Consider Additional Upgrades
Choosing a single-hole faucet is a great time to consider additional upgrades. For example, when examining the style of a kitchen, a homeowner might decide that the existing hodgepodge style isn’t desired any longer. Rather than simply purchasing a single-hole faucet that matches the current style, they might instead opt to upgrade the sink, spray nozzle, and other fixtures.
Similarly, in the bathroom, adding in a new faucet is the perfect chance to consider swapping out the shower head, towel racks, and sink console.
