Fab Fixtures: The Faucet

<p>Fab Fixtures: The Faucet</p>

A wall-mounted faucet might not be the first feature you consider when redesigning your bathroom or kitchen sink region. But in some situations there isn’t any other choice, and others it is a stunning design choice.

Have a peek at how slick and dramatic these taps can be. You might end up using one for added wow factor in your next home project.

Wall mounted faucets operate well in minimalist kitchens where the less decoration to divert from the simplified materials and shapes, the better. Shallow counter depths that don’t leave clearance for the holes of a centermount faucet dictate the use of a wall mounted fixture. When those situations arise, make it seem intentional and contemporary.

Wall mounted faucets also work well in more traditional kitchens. It may be the perfect solution for an antique sink that you do not want to mar with fresh hole drillings for a centerset faucet.

Potfiller faucets, common in restaurants, are getting more common fixtures near stoves in gourmet kitchens. The articulated arms reduce back strain by being able to fill big pots with water.

An out-of-the-box layout idea: Consider utilizing a potfiller fixture as the principal faucet for a massive bath or kitchen sink.

Shallower counter depths where there is not enough clearance behind the sink for the centerset faucet holes expect a wall mounted faucet. It may be installed at any height you like.

A good idea is to highlight the faucet wall with chalkboard paint for family notes, recipes and grocery lists.

Vessel sinks (versus drop-in or undermount sinks) provide another fantastic program for wall-mounted faucets.

I just had to talk about this case. I stopped in my tracks when I saw the combination of cool shimmery metallic wall finishes combined with the natural pebble-like form of the vessel sink, all on top of a wood floating vanity. Trés chic and modern. Nothing apart from a wall-mounted faucet could do for this original modern combination.

I like the dramatic impact of installing the faucet in the mirror, making an arc in the reflection when the water is running.

When installing the wall-mounted faucet, make sure that the spout will get to the center of the sink basin. Certainly, there’ll be no misses or spillage in this carefully planned installation.

Bringing the tap off the counter top surface and onto the wall permits you to create a fresh and clutter-free area. This faucet choice helped to create spa-like calmness of the bright and sharp bathroom.

Clutter is even more of a challenge in dual-sink vanities. Once again, that the wall-mount faucet saves the day by clearing counter property.

No counter? No issue. You can make the tiny powder room feel larger with a base vessel sink and a wall mounted faucet in a mirror wall. Talk about dramatic effect. Mix in vivid crimson walls and polished brass finishes and we have moved into show-stopper land. And I adore that nautical flavored porthole window opening.
