Wall-mounted faucets have been around for centuries. In fact, prior to the advent of the flexible hose most taps had to be wall-mounted out of necessity. With water lines running through wall interiors it simply made sense to hook fixtures up directly to the pipes.
But today’s wall-mounted fixtures are not your grandfather’s faucet. They’re trendy, stylish and sure to give your bathroom that luxury look.
Fixture design used to be focused on durability and functionality but nowadays your bathroom faucet is truly an expression of self.
Great looks are nice, but they’re not everything
Along with making bathrooms look like something out of the Ritz-Carlton, wall-mounted faucets carry plenty of other benefits.
Wall-mounted faucets are easier to clean and easier to keep clean. You know that dirt and grime that collects at the base of a top-mounted faucet? You won’t have to worry about it any more. Handles are also less likely to become spotted with water marks as they won’t be speckled with spray splashing out of the sink.
Without the base and handles taking up space along the countertop, you’ll have more area to store bathroom and beauty products. All the extra room translates into a less cluttered vanity.
Versatility is the name of the game
Unlike top-mounted faucets that generally need to be installed into pre-determined holes on your sink, a wall-mounted fixture can be installed at any height you prefer (provided you properly account for water flow into your sink).
You’ll enjoy further versatility because should you wish to, you can be totally creative with your sink as it is installed completely independent of the faucet. From a gorgeous ceramic bowl to a timeless copper basin, wall-mounted taps allow you to get in touch with your artistic side.
You simply can’t go wrong with a vessel sink
With a much longer throw or reach from the wall, wall-mounted faucets are the perfect match for vessel sinks. What makes a vessel sink different is that they are installed on top of the counter as opposed to being inset into a hole cut into the furniture.
The result is a fun, contemporary, cutting-edge look.
Vessel sinks come in all shapes and sizes and are available in an endless array of materials. From cast iron to glass, natural stone, marble, stainless steel and even bronze, you’ll be sure to find just the right style to provide a stunning central feature in your new bath.
