Your bathroom is a sacred space. Sometimes – especially if you have children – it's the one place in your home you can go to have a moment to yourself! It should be a relaxing environment, a space where you can pamper yourself and get ready in peace. But it should also be somewhere that reflects your own personal style. An easy way to add some modern flair to your bathroom is to install waterfall faucets, which allow water to pour from the spout like a waterfall.
Of course, like other bathroom faucet types, waterfall faucets come in a variety of styles – from single-handle to double-handle models, thin to wide faucets, wall-mounted to counter-mounted – so you can find one that matches your specific style and décor. They also are available in several finishes, including brushed nickel, bronze, chrome, and brass.
Here are a few other reasons to consider waterfall faucets on your sinks and bathtub:
Calm. Waterfalls and fountains are often found in spas and other such places to promote relaxation. Likewise, waterfall faucets bring a certain sense of peace to your bathroom that's very zen.
Green. While not all waterfall faucets are eco-friendly, there are several options that abide by the EPA's definition of "green products." Simply look for the WaterSense label and you'll find environmentally conscious faucets that could save you money on your utility bill every month.
Fun. Browse waterfall faucets online or in a store and you're sure to see some funky designs – from spaceship-like disks to LED-lit faucets that change color with different temperatures. These will almost certainly bring a smile to your face and help you have fun while you wash your hands or run your bath.
While waterfall faucets are beautiful and stylish, they can develop problems such as water leaks over time. However, this can usually be prevented by regular maintenance of your entire plumbing system. Learn how to maintain these faucets yourself or call in your local plumber to do so.
