Whether you’re renovating your home or you just need to replace an old faucet, there are a few questions you can ask to help identify the right model.
It may be tempting to choose a nice-looking faucet out of a catalogue. But, unfortunately, looks aren’t everything when it comes to choosing the right faucet for your whole family. By asking yourself five simple questions, you can be sure to choose the faucet that meets all your needs, so that it will be a long time before you need to replace it again.
Who will be using the faucets?
Where will the faucet be located?
What type of sink do you have?
How important is sustainability?
What’s your budget?
If the faucet will be in the kitchen, whether you have a dishwasher is important. If you do, you will need a model with a dishwasher valve. Also, consider whether you need to wash large pots and pans by hand. If so, you will need a higher spout.

If the faucet is for the bathroom, again, consider whether you need a washing machine valve. If the faucet is for the utility or laundry room, what tasks will you use it for? If you wash large machinery or equipment, you will need a higher spout. If you use the room for changing or bathing your baby, perhaps a washbasin faucet with a Bidetta hand shower, like a shower kit, such as HANSADESIGNO Style 51682281 is a good idea.
In all three cases, it’s important to consider how much space is above and behind the basin. Is there a cabinet just above? How close is the wall? These variables could place limits on the height or type of faucet control you can choose.
