Featured Image – SKU: KS2267DX
The new Kingston Brass Constantine two-handle, single-hole bathroom faucet accomplishes many great things. Its unique luster and intriguing design masterfully combine the old and the new, making it a perfect addition to any bathroom design — from minimalist bathrooms to more industrial leanings and modern bath decor.
In this guide, homeowners can learn from five bold design tips for the bathroom, finding inspiration for allowing creativity and imagination to run free in the creation of a new bathroom style.
Make a Bold Statement
If your question is how to make a bold statement in your bathroom design, the Constantine faucet is your answer. It’s not only visually bold, but it also makes great strides in its design. While the Constantine is a single-hole design, you won’t find the controls typically present on standard single-hole faucets. But instead, separate temperature and volume control handles arranged vertically in a clean minimalist design.
The Constantine faucet disrupts previous definitions of a single-hole bathroom faucet with the most current engineering in plumbing fixtures integrated into the design. It gives you the clean, easy-to-install and maintain design of a single-hole faucet with unique operation. The top handle controls water volume and flow, while the bottom handle controls water temperature, giving the user more precise control rarely found in a single-hole faucet design. This control works well with conventional plumbing, and it provides an exceptional compliment to under-sink “instant” tankless water heaters.
Advantages of Single-Hole Faucets
In addition to the beautiful and functional design, the one-hole faucet is much easier to install, requiring only one hole to be drilled rather than three or more.
In addition to ease of installation, the Constantine single-hole faucet is perfect for smaller spaces or where negative space contributes to minimalist decor. This faucet will be a big performer that requires very little space, making it an ideal fit for a powder room or half-baths.
The Two-Handle Faucet
Single-handle faucets operate by combining the hot and cold water through one cartridge operated by that handle. The handle rotation governs the amount of hot or cold water that runs through the faucet and the angle determines the volume of water flowing through the spout. Traditional, two-handle faucets provide a handle for hot and for cold water that mixes together before flowing through the spout. The Constantine faucet’s design controls the mix of hot and cold by the rotation of the lower handle, and flow is controlled by rotating the upper handle providing a precise temperature mix and water volume every time. This feature also allows for the temperature of the water to be set and left for later.
Choosing the Perfect Faucet for Your Space
You’ll need to consider several things about your bathroom before finding the perfect sink and faucet for your space.
First, what is the design of your bathroom? If the current decor would be enhanced by a versatile aesthetic and functionality, the Constantine faucet could be your perfect choice.
You should also consider the available space where the faucet will be installed. The Constantine faucet can accommodate a smaller area due to its modern and efficient design. But it is versatile enough to work in larger baths as well.
Your next consideration is the style of the existing faucet. If you’re replacing just the faucet, you’ll need to consider existing holes that have been drilled. A single-hole faucet will only use one of the holes, leaving the other exposed. There are options for covering the existing holes, like this center-cover plate from Kingston Brass.
Features of the Constantine Faucet
You can expect a variety of features in the Constantine single-hole bathroom faucet from Kingston Brass. In short, the Constantine bathroom faucet eliminates many of the problems faced by owners of traditional plumbing fixtures. From the selection of materials to the exquisite design, you’ll enjoy this bathroom faucet for many years to come.
- Solid brass construction: Brass is versatile, durable, lead-free, and lasts through time and heavy use. Fixtures made from this material will last decades and can stand up to the high-use wear and tear that kitchen and bathroom faucets see day in and day out.
- Drip-free ceramic disc cartridge: This addition allows for precise adjustments of water temperature. It also allows easy and complete shut off of the water tap and eliminates “invisible leaks,” dripping, and rubber washers, and is designed to last a lifetime. Kingston Brass does offer replacements, however, just in case. The ceramic disc cartridge is around the same cost as less effective traditional methods of plumbing and is much easier to replace and more efficient to use.
- Deck mount single-hole installation: This feature allows for easy installation and maintenance.
- Unique temp and flow control handles: The top handle controls water flow volume, and the bottom handle controls temperature. This allows for both precise control and for “set and forget” water temperature control.
- Matching finish pop-up drain: Simply push down on the stopper to stopper the drain and fill the sink. Press again to open the drain.
- Dimensions: The 11-1/4″ spout height, 6-3/4″ spout clearance, 6-1/2″ spout reach makes it a perfect fit for small or large bathroom areas
- Warranty: The Constantine single-hole bathroom faucet comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Choose Your Finish
While the finish of the spotlight faucet is oil-rubbed bronze, Constantine is also available in polished chrome, brushed nickel, brushed brass, and matte black. All are engineered and designed with the quality promised by Kingston Brass to their customers.
