Best Material for Bathroom Sink Faucets: Solid Brass

A bathroom faucet made from solid brass, the best material for sink faucets for durability.
Featured Product: Central Park West™ Sink Faucet, Arch Spout, Lever Handles

Brass is known for its unmatched durability, with warm coloring and rich history dating back to the Victorian Era. It is currently enjoying a resurgence in design circles—providing golden, inviting tones in both traditional and modern spaces.

Solid brass bathroom faucets will never corrode or rust, unlike plated steel or aluminum. As a result of avoiding constant replacements, homeowners typically save money over the long haul with the finest quality bathroom faucets constructed of solid brass.

What Is Unlacquered Brass?

Unlacquered Brass, often referred to as a living finish, is brass in its purest form with no protective lacquer to prevent it from aging. It has an organic beauty with a deep, golden color. It dulls in sheen with age and contains visible texture variations as the product is buffed and burnished during regular use, a feature which is impossible to replicate in any manufacturing process.  

As the metal ages, it is prone to the natural process of oxidation—darkening in color and developing a distinct yet elegant character. However, if you desire the brilliant golden shine of freshly polished brass, an Unlacquered Brass faucet can be polished by hand to its original state at any time.

FAQs About the Finest Bathroom Faucets for Your Luxury Oasis

How do I know if my bathroom faucet will fit?

When searching for the best quality bathroom faucets, you will need to understand what type of sink setup you have. Widespread faucets have traditionally been the most common, with a faucet in the center with two handles flanking it on either side. The sink will have three holes drilled to accommodate this style. 

The single-hole faucet style is becoming popular with designers and architects due to the ease of installation and space efficiency with a single hole.

What faucet materials and finishes last the longest?

The best quality bathroom faucets are constructed of solid brass for long-lasting reliability throughout years of use. KALLISTA offers an array of durable PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finishes to ensure your fixtures maintain optimal beauty.

How many types of faucets are there?

Choosing the best bathroom fixtures depends on your sink type. If you have existing drill holes, you will want to stay with that configuration.  When starting from scratch with a new bathroom sink, the most common types of bathroom faucets are widespread, single-hole, and wall-mounted. There are advantages to each of these. The best-rated widespread bathroom faucets are those that are made of solid brass with an array of finishes to fit your personal design needs. 

Single-hole faucets are good for easy installation. Additionally, this will take up less space on your countertop. Finally, the wall-mounted faucet, either single or double handled, is a chic choice and frees up even more counter space and allows for easy cleaning as water won’t pool up behind the sink top faucets. 

What is a valve on a bathroom faucet?

Valves control the flow and temperature of the water coming from your bathroom faucet. Additionally, a valve maintains a seal to prevent water leakage. When you purchase your new bathroom sink faucets, choose the valve that’s appropriate for your configuration. The best quality bathroom faucets have premium valve construction. KALLISTA offers premium valves with quarter-turn washerless ceramic discs and solid brass construction. 

Should I get a single or double-handle bathroom faucet?

With so many choices in bathroom faucets, installing a single or double-control faucet is a personal style and design choice. If you have existing faucets and are making upgrades, the selection is best made by what exists in your current configuration. With one or two holes, you may need to opt for a single handle. Three holes will require a double handle arrangement. 

If you are designing your bathroom sink from scratch, you have the option of researching bathroom faucet reviews and deciding which is best for you. With a smaller bathroom countertop, a single handle has the advantage of taking up less space. In a bathroom with more space, or a dual sink layout, a double-handle widespread faucet is a common choice.
