A wall mount faucet can save space and looks very stylish. In order to choose the best one for your kitchen or bathroom, you need to consider functionality, appearance, and size. The most important factor is whether or not your wall mount faucet will fit with your sink. It should also be functional and work for your particular needs. If you use the sink a lot, you may want to choose function over form.

There are many styles of wall mount faucets available, both in stores and online. The style you choose will ideally match the rest of your bathroom or kitchen décor, unless you want a more eclectic look. Most stores have a variety of styles in stock, but if you want a faucet that is specialized, such as one that is an antique or made of expensive material, you may need to go to a specialty store and be prepared to pay a higher price.

A wall mount faucet may have one handle or two. Both styles are available, but there is typically more choice when in the two-handled variety. You will need to consider how you will be using the faucet to make the best choice. There is no particular advantage of one over the other.


If you use the faucet a lot, especially one that is in a kitchen, you may want to consider purchasing a commercial wall mount faucet. These types of faucets are used in industrial environments as well as commercial kitchens. They are usually very durable and easy to use.

Commercial wall mount faucets also offer extras, such as an aerator to control water flow. They can also come with infrared sensors that allow for hands-free use as well as a specialized temperature control. Many times the nozzles are adjustable, which make them easier to clean.

The drawback to commercial wall mount faucets is they are often expensive. You will also need to have access to a store or online site that specializes in commercial equipment, as most hardware stores and other stores that cater solely to consumers won’t have them for viewing. If you use the faucet a lot, it may be worth the extra money and effort.

With the prevalence of online shopping, the choices available for wall mount faucets are quite large. The specifications of your size needs as well as knowing what style you want will make choosing one easier. If you do obtain one online, be sure and verify that it will fit your sink type.
