You may think that a faucet isn’t a big deal, but using this every day multiple times a day will change your mind.  These Tips for Choosing a Faucet for Your Bathroom are just what you need to make the best choices for your home.  Check out our tips before making the final plans for updating your bathroom.

Tips for Choosing a Faucet for Your Bathroom

Match to your aesthetic preferences. 

Compare the faucet options from TOTO to your overall design theme.  Various colors, styles, and aesthetics are available to fit your personal preferences.  This is one of those fun little things that you can control.  Polished nickel, brushed nickel, and polished chrome are all great options that can make the theme of your bathroom come together seamlessly.

Invest in something classic for long-term use. 

We mentioned above picking something you love aesthetically, but that doesn’t mean you should throw caution to the wind. A beautiful but classic design can stand the test of time.  Even when you prefer a different color on your bathroom walls in 5 years, the right faucet will last a lifetime.

Choose a water conserving option

We love a bright and shiny faucet, but if it costs more money to use, then it’s not worth the beauty.  That’s one of the things I love about the TOTO Upton, Guinevere and Wyeth High-Efficiency Faucets.  They make washing up super easy to manage, but don’t use too much water.  As drought is a real issue for many areas of the country, this is even more important to consider.

Durability for long-term usage

A faucet is used more than most of the items in your home that you update when remodeling or when building.  A quality faucet is a must. Especially if you will have children using it on a regular basis.  Your faucet will be turned off and on at least 4-5 times per day.  This is being used around 1500 times per year at the minimum.  You want that to stand the test of time.

No matter what you decide, you can count on the quality of TOTO Upton, Guinevere and Wyeth High-Efficiency Faucets in your bathroom.  Using these to pull together your bathroom design is easier than you think and will create a beautiful decor that you will love to years to come.  We have been extremely happy with our TOTO faucets and their high-quality craftsmanship will last for years to come.
