Before you purchase a bathroom sink faucet, think about how your bathroom will be used and by whom. Consider what you like and don’t like about your current faucet.

With these thoughts in mind, follow our three steps to choose the perfect bathroom sink faucet for your home.

Make sure you choose a faucet that is compatible with your bathroom sink. First, determine whether the faucet will be mounted on the sink, the counter or the wall. For sink-mounted (also called "deck-mounted") faucets, count the number of hole drillings in the deck of the sink (one, three or none). Measure how far apart the holes are, then choose a faucet that is compatible. When measured from center to center, holes are usually 2 or 4 inches apart.

If you have not yet chosen a sink and the faucet is an important consideration, you can pick the faucet you want and look for a sink that fits the faucet. Faucets are available in single-hole, centerset, wall-mount or widespread styles.

Centerset Faucets Centerset
Many bathroom faucets, especially those for smaller sinks, come in centerset models. Compact and space-efficient, these faucets fit three-hole sink drillings that measure 4 inches from one side to the other. The spout and handles on many centerset faucets are connected. In cases where they are not connected, the handles and spout are usually placed close together. This is called a centerspread or centerset.
Single-hole Faucets Single-hole
Most faucets that are designed for single-hole drillings have a single handle. Some models, however, fit into a single hole drilling and have two handles attached to the spout.

If you like the look of a single-handle faucet but have a sink with 4-inch hole drillings, you may be able to mount the faucet with an escutcheon plate that covers the extra holes and still maintains the faucet design.
