When you select a new bathroom faucet or replacement, one of the first things you need to decide is if you want a single handle bathroom faucet or a faucet with two separate handles. A single handle faucet only needs one hole in your sink or vanity for installation, so you might hear it referred to as a single hole bathroom faucet.
Pros of Single Handle Faucets
Single-hole sink fixtures feature a compact design and water-mixing valves within the faucet housing, which gives you the ability to control the temperature of the water with only one hand. You can find the temperature easy and free up your other hand for teeth brushing or other getting-ready tasks. They’re also easier to install because they don’t require multiple holes to be drilled into your countertop or sink vanity.
Faucet Finishes and Styles
Today’s single-hole bathroom faucets come in a wide array of finishes and styles to fit your space. Whether it’s a bronze fixture with a rustic hand pump design or brushed nickel with a sleek, modern feel, the options are endless.
