You’ll need a quality bathroom sink faucet or automatic tap to go along with the aesthetic you’re aiming to accomplish when you get a fantastic sink or vanity set up for your bathroom renovation. Depending upon the features, the price of the bathroom taps will also vary.

A faucet is a device that allows water to be delivered from a plumbing system. Spout, handle(s), lift rod, cartridge, aerator, mixing chamber, and water inlets are all possible components.

Price of faucets

The following four factors govern the price of bathroom taps:

1. Area of installation

2. The general arrangement and size of the product

3. Material of the faucet

4. Any special design or functional features



Below is a list of the four most common types of bathroom faucets used in the home:

1. Ball: Washerless faucet with a single handle that moves over a rounded ball-shaped cap right above the base of the faucet spout.

2. Disc: Modern taps with a single lever over a wide cylindrical body. These mix hot and cold water inside a mixing chamber called a pressure balance cartridge.

3. Cartridge: Washerless half-turn tap with a consistent and smooth feel all the way across the twisting axis.

4. Compression: Traditional, double-handle washer taps with separate handles for hot and cold water.



1. Single handle: Faucets that use only one handle to control temperature and water pressure simultaneously.

2. Center piece: Featuring a small faucet body with one or two handles and a shorter spout for water pressure and temperature control.

3. Wall-mounted: Modern style tap attached to the wall behind the floating basin that extends over the basin.

4. Deck-mounted: The one mounted directly to the countertop, not the wall or the washbasin itself.

5. Touchless: Available in both hard-wired and battery-operated models that mount on a wall or deck.

6. Automatic or sensor: Intelligent faucets that stop the flow of water as soon as you take your hand away.

7. Widespread: Three-hole bathroom taps featuring two handles and a spout having a high ornamental value.
