Waterfall faucets come in variety of shapes and materials, but what they all have in common is the way the water flows from them.
Waterfall faucets come from wide opening or faucet to create small waterfall effect as the water flows down the plate and into the sink or bathtub. The plate and base of the sink can be made from the same or different materials. Different faucet designs have different features as well, so homeowners should check out available models and consider the benefits of each before making final purchase.
To choose the best waterfall faucets, homeowner needs to consider the style of her bathroom, or the room in which the faucet will be used.
The two most popular materials used on waterfall faucets, and possibly on the sink basin if the homeowner decides to replace the entire sink, are glass and metal. Silver is the traditional color for metal, while glass is available in the traditional clear style or in a mixture of different colors. Homeowners who want more modern or contemporary look often choose clear glass with metal accent pieces, while those who want something little brighter choose colored glass. For minimalistic style, solid metal waterfall faucets are available.
The size and installation of waterfall faucets also plays an important role in how well it will function in the home. Choosing waterfall faucets that fits in with the size of the room and doesn’t get in the way is one consideration, but it’s also important to consider how well the new faucet and sink will match the scale of the current bathroom or kitchen furniture. Small, cozy rooms can become overwhelmed with giant pieces, and giant rooms with smaller pieces may feel too empty.
In terms of installation requirements, easiest is best as long as it doesn’t compromise quality and safety. Typically waterfall faucets are simple enough in design that the homeowner can install it herself. She should ask a worker where she buys her faucet for installation advice and instructions. Hiring a professional is another option and is recommended for more complicated or larger faucet models.
