Not all bathroom sink faucets work with every sink, so it's important to make sure the faucet you choose will fit your sink or basin. Standard faucet drillings are centerset, single-hole or widespread.
4-Inch Centerset Faucets
4-inch centerset faucets are made for washbasins with three holes and have handles that are 4 inches apart. They combine a spout and handles on a single base unit. Some centerset faucets may have two handles mounted onto a 6-inch plate.
A single-hole bathroom faucet can have a single handle or two handles. If your sink has already been drilled for extra holes, use an optional plate to cover them up.
Vessel Sink Faucets
Wall-mounted bathroom faucet options are available for above-the-counter and freestanding basins that require a long spout for extended reach. They won't work with basins that have drilled holes. Wall-mounted faucets require a separate wall-mounted valve and drain for installation. Make sure the spout is long enough for adequate basin clearance. Check that the sink is deep enough to prevent water from splashing on your floor or countertops.
Widespread bathroom faucets work with three-hole basins. They have three separate pieces, two handles and a spout, and the spacing between the handles ranges from 6 to 16 inches.
