Pairing a Vessel Sink and Wall Mount Faucet

Vessel sinks remain one of the hottest trends for bathroom remodels and new construction alike in 2021 and beyond. Yet, it is not enough to pick an attractive vessel sink and install it.
The faucet must also match this unique type of bathroom sink since it is much taller on the sides than most models. While there are extra tall counter-mounted faucets available for these sinks, they’re expensive and can be tricky to install. If there is space for mounting the faucet on the wall instead, consider it for these reasons and more.
Due to the height of the vessel sink that makes it so iconic, it’s not the easiest design to match to a faucet. Not only does the neck of the faucet need to rise high enough to reach over the sides of the sink, but it must also be the right height above the bowl not to cause splashing. Wall mount faucets offer more control over both of these characteristics. It’s easy to adjust the height to prevent splashing and make the most of the bowl of the vessel sink.
Most vessel sinks are modern in style, or they may offer an eclectic style if colored glass or other unique materials are used. This means the wall mount faucets paired with them should also offer a modern-like style. Choosing a retro or vintage faucet might clash with the vessel sink. Eclectic glass and porcelain vessel sinks may work well with vintage faucet designs, but that is best determined on a case-by-case basis.
Don’t forget to move the mirror up to allow extra wall space for the wall mount faucet. A smaller mirror may be needed to create the free space above the sink. Cutting an existing mirror down is not something a homeowner can generally do, but swapping out a full-sized mirror for a smaller framed model is easy enough with basic tools. Bathroom mirrors stop at a higher point with vessel sinks in general, but a few extra inches will be needed for the wall mount faucet.
