Choosing a Wall Mount Bathroom Faucet
Not all faucets are created equal, a wall-mount bathroom faucet is a great idea to pair with a vessel sink, especially in smaller bathrooms or for bathroom countertops that are more narrow, when the sink is positioned closer to the wall. A wall-mount bathroom faucet is also an excellent idea when paired with a wall-mounted sink.
Wall-mounted faucets are available for above-the-counter and freestanding basins that require a long spout for an extended reach.
Even though they can be a convenient space saver, wall-mount faucets are a little tricky to install, you may want to seek the help of a plumber, rather than attempting to install it yourself. Sink-mounted faucets connect to the exposed plumbing lines that run up behind or under the sink. But since wall-mounted faucets are as the name implies, mounted to the wall, the plumbing lines are installed in the wall itself.
A couple more things to consider if you are thinking of going with a wall-mount bathroom faucet. First, when installing the faucet, make sure it is positioned directly over the sink’s drain to reduce the chance of splashing. Also to eliminate getting water all over your countertop and floor, make sure you don’t install the faucet too high above the sink. You want to have enough clearance, for proper and convenient use, but you don’t want the wall-mounted faucet to be so high above the sink that is causes splashing.
