When remodeling your bathroom, you'll need to

The configuration of a faucet determines whether it can be installed on your vanity or sink properly. There are several different configurations; familiarizing yourself with the advantages and disadvantages of each type can help you make the right choice. First and foremost, you'll need to choose a configuration that works with the style and size of vanity or bathroom basin you've chosen. If you have your heart set on a particular style of faucet such as a wall mount, you may want to choose your Aurora plumbing fixtures first, then choose a sink that works with it. Otherwise, choose the sink or vanity top you prefer, then make sure you choose a faucet with the right configuration to fit seamlessly with it.

Single Hole Or Center Set Faucets

Single hole or center sets are the most common faucet configurations. With a single hole fixture, the faucet and both spigots for turning the hot and cold water on or off are mounted on one base that will fit into a single hole on the edge of your Chicago bath's sink. These are the easiest kind of faucets to install and are relatively inexpensive to replace. If you do your own plumbing, these can save you time and money because they are simple to install.

Center set faucets feature hot and cold handles mounted just to the left and right of the water faucet, but still on a single base. These also work well in any contemporary or traditional bathroom. They are quite popular because they blend with almost any size vanity but offer separate hot and cold handles for precise adjustment of the water's temperature. If you're not sure which kind you'll need, check out a Chicago bath showroom to see which style you like.

Widespread Faucets

Widespread faucets appeal to some Chicago Koehler customers because they appear to be custom designed for larger vanities and sinks. With a widespread unit, you'll need to have three individual holes drilled in the sink top or vanity - one each for hot and cold controls and a central hole for the faucet itself. These require more room because the holes need to be spread over an eight inch width.

Not all vanities have this much available space, so make sure you measure the width of the holes in your vanity. If there are three holes but the spacing is narrower than eight inches across, you'll need to choose Chicago Koehler fixtures that are modified for the smaller configuration; these are often referred to as mini spread faucet sets. Visit a Chicago bath showroom to compare Aurora plumbing fixtures in both styles.

Wall Mount Faucets

Wall mount faucets are extremely popular in contemporary and modern Chicago bath designs. These unusual fixtures are mounted in the wall above the sink basin. You can find Chicago Koehler styles for wall mounting that are either single hole or three hole for versatility. Keep in mind that you'll need to install these in the wall behind your sink, requiring additional plumbing work and a precise fit. In most instances, you'll want to hire a plumber or professional contractor to install wall mount faucets.

Many people who are remodeling Chicago baths turn to wall mount faucets because they free up counter space or because they have installed free standing sink bowls rather than an integrated sink. By installing wall mounts, you create a sleek look and minimize the clutter on the vanity. It can be difficult to find faucets that work with free standing sink bowls, but wall mount faucets are an ideal solution.

Regardless of what kind of Chicago Koehler fixtures you're partial to, visiting a Chicago bath showroom is an excellent way to discover stylish Aurora plumbing fixtures that will complete the look of your bathroom beautifully.
