While some may be overwhelmed just by the thought of a bathroom remodel, others, like myself, see the countless possibilities that lie ahead. It’s an opportunity to get your creative juices flowing and trust me, when it starts it, won’t stop. Choosing the right faucet design is just one part of the many decisions that you will have to make. So, if you’re already rolling your eyes, this is for you. Below are three steps to choosing the rightfaucet design. This will hopefully make your job a bit easier and give you the motivation needed to start that bathroom remodel you’ve been dying to get done.

Regardless of the faucet design you ultimately choose, go for quality and integrity of the faucet’s parts. You want something that’s durable, but also within your price range. With that said, consider the following design elements when choosing the right faucet design for your remodeling project.

Style & Design

When looking to imitate an Old World or Tuscan style design, Barbara Kaplan, interior designer and principal of Design Dimensions in Phoenix suggested choosing oil rubbed finishes. In her interview with HGTV, Kaplan states that because the finish offers a brownish, burnt tone, it stands out wonderfully in a cabin or cottage setting.

In the above photo, oil rubbed fixtures are paired with a white marble countertop, marble backsplash, neutral paint and a gold framed mirror to create a warm and inviting space.

Let’s say you want a Scandinavian style bathroom, then you probably want to go with chrome fixtures. On the other hand, nickel hardware allows for a more elegant design. This type of fixture is best used in a guest bathroom or powder room, where you get to be more creative because of the smaller size.
