Faucets That Suit You Best: Let Your Imagination Flow Freely

ProSource | 9/3/2015 | Product Information

There are certain items in our homes that we take for granted over time, because we use them every day. We only notice them when they aren’t working, or we suddenly decide they look ugly. Faucets are like this. As long as the water runs freely and at the temperature we need, there are more pressing matters to which to attend.

With your visit here today, faucets must now be on the forefront of your mind. Is a move motivating you to replace all existing fixtures? This morning did you reach for the bathroom faucet handle, only to have it come off in your hand? Or did the kitchen sprayer greet your houseguest with water in the face from a side leak?

Whatever the reason, there are a few items to think about before buying a new faucet. The evolution of faucets has accelerated. They now come in a wide range of styles, finishes and functionality. They can be as unique as your cabinets, countertops  and flooring.

Whether modern or rustic, there are faucets to suit your particular taste. Simply put, these days faucets do far more than just pour water.

General Considerations

  • Room/function
  • Sink/countertop, vanity
  • Style
  • Color/Finish


  • For resale value, consider using the same style and finish throughout your home; otherwise, feel to mix it up as you wish.
  • Brushed finishes are great for hiding water spots and fingerprints.
  • Choose between manual or automated control of the water temperature.
  • Low-flow faucets are available to address drought conditions or preference to reduce water waste.
