It can possibly be the single most used item in your bathroom – the faucet. As it’s the focal point of the bathroom, it can change the way your entire bathroom area looks. It can be an eyesore covered in soap scum and dripping. Or, you can update the look of your faucet and therefore the look of your entire bathroom. It pays to shop for a new faucet carefully, because if you don’t, you may be forced to replace the replacement sooner than you would like.
Typically, a faucet is replaced about once every seven years. Some of the reasons for replacement can include a desire to have a new style, the faucet no longer works properly, or because the faucet is pitted or peeling.
A faucet with a disk cartridge will cost more up front, but it will provide many years of drip-free service. And because the faucet’s working parts are all contained in the cartridge, replacement is simple. Cartridges are either plastic or ceramic, although we recommend ceramic as it’s the best quality.
Whether you choose a traditional bathroom faucet or let your imagination soar, your budget will undoubtedly play a big role in your choice of material and style. With prices from $50 to $10,000, there will be something out there to suit you.
