Change Your Bathroom’s Look With a New Faucet
Bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in the house. Despite this, they tend to get a bit less attention than other rooms when it comes to how they look. If you find yourself worrying that you have a less-than-beautiful bathroom, you’re in luck; the bathroom is also one of those rooms where a relatively simple change can make a big difference in the overall look. In fact, something as seemingly simple as changing your faucet can have a major impact on how you and your guests view your bathroom.
Of course, it’s important that you choose the right faucet if you’re hoping to make a positive change to the look of your bathroom. A cheap or ugly faucet can have as big of a negative effect on the room’s appearance as a beautiful faucet can change it for the better. If you’re not sure what sort of faucet to get to make a positive impact on your bathroom, here are a couple of things to keep in mind while you’re shopping.
Faucet Style Considerations
One of the main things to consider when choosing a new faucet for your bathroom is the style of the faucet. While you might think that one faucet is pretty much the same as any other, there are actually a wide range of styles to choose from. Different styles work better in different rooms, and pairing the wrong faucet style with your bathroom can make it look out of place and really throw off the overall look.
When shopping for a new faucet, think about the color of the faucet, the finish, and even the shape that would work best in your bathroom. Many bathroom faucets are silver or chrome in color, but there are a wide range of metallic shades available and quite a few that offer splashes of other colors as well. Some faucets are taller than others, and some are very blocky and square while others are rounded and smooth. Take pictures of towel racks, wall colors, and other features of your bathroom to help with your comparisons.
Faucet Functionality
Functionality is often overlooked when shopping for a new faucet, since many people just buy a faucet that functions the same as their previous one. There are several different functional options available in bathroom faucets, though, and they can impact the overall look of your bathroom as well. Some faucets have a single handle while others have separate handles for hot and cold water. Some have water-saving features, some are designed to mount through a single hole, and some mount to the wall or are otherwise specialized for standing vessel sinks. Each of these different types brings with it specific quirks of installation.
Some faucets may take functionality changes even further than this. You may consider touch-sensitive faucets that you can turn on and off with a tap of your hand, or faucets that have attached soap dispensers built directly into the sink counter. Other functional features may be available as well, and they will affect not only how you use the faucet but also how it looks as well.
Installing a New Faucet
Once you’ve picked out a faucet, installing it can be a decent DIY project for the weekend. In most cases, faucet installation is fairly straightforward; you remove the old faucet, put the new faucet in its place, then tighten the mounting hardware and reattach the water lines. If you’re making significant changes to the style of faucet in your bathroom or adding new features like a built-in soap dispenser or handles that are separate from the main faucet body, however, there might be a bit more work involved.

Good morning, Norma... no doubt small changes like this can make a big impact... the only problem with changing a faucet is that once you start with one you need to make more changes to ensure all the fixtures match!

Little things can make a big difference and a full remodel is not always necessary for a nice update.

Brian England I totally agree with you and a faucet does spiff the place up a bit too.  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
