How to Choose a Bathroom Faucet

We are almost ready for our bathroom renovation reveals. When renovating and remodeling, there are so many decisions that need to be made, we talked about choosing the toilet, WASHLET and vanity for the bathroom, but I did not mention the faucet yet. When choosing a faucet there are several things you need to consider.

Faucet Type

First off, if you are updating and keeping the same vanity top and vanity, you are limited to what you can choose. You cannot install a single handle faucet if you have widespread faucet. Well, you can but it will have to have a plate that covers the other holes so you won’t have the same look. If you are starting from scratch, you have all the options you want. I chose a single handle faucet because I like the sleek look and find them easier to clean.

Sink Type

The type of sink you have is also a factor, if you have a vessel sink, make sure you choose a faucet that will work with it. The type of mount and gallons per minute are other things to keep in mind when choosing your faucet.



The next choice is the finish. Again, if you are not starting from scratch, you need to consider the colors of the other fixtures in the bathroom. We had a clean slate to work with so I went with the brushed nickel.


Next, the hardest part. What style faucet do you want? There are so many styles to choose from! We could not believe all the choices we had in front of us when we were checking out TOTO USA’s website for a bathroom faucet. With so many great styles to choose from, it was hard to decide. In the end, we went with something traditional and elegant. We choose the Guinevere faucet and just had it installed. It is absolutely beautiful.

About Our Faucet

Guinevere as we call her, is more than beautiful, she has a durable brass construction with a ceramic disc cartridge. She has a WaterSense Approved Low-Flow of 1.5 gpm. Guinevere comes in three fabulous finishes: polished chrome, polished nickel and brushed nickel. A metal pop up drain is included.

Our plumber told me that he was very impressed with the faucet. I laughed and told him to handle her carefully and that her name was Guinevere. We both had a good laugh on that, but we still call her by her name. The faucet and pop up drain were easy for him to install without any issues. Guinevere works flawlessly. I will show you how well in a video as soon as we do the reveal.

TOTO Products Take Out Time Out Mat and Star Stash Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

Do your kids tend to test you when you are out?  Do you find it hard to be consistent with your discipline when you are out, traveling or visiting?  If so, then I think you will love these great items I recently received to review from TOTO Products.  The first is the Take-Out Time-Out Disciplinary Mat.  This mat fits neatly in a small drawstring pouch that you can keep in your purse or diaper bag.  Now you have a waterproof time out spot that can be fit to a chair, stair, or even the floor.  The mat is machine washable and very durable.  This is a great way to show consistency in discipline to your child.  It can also be used if 2 or more children are fighting over a toy and can’t agree to take turns, the toy can be placed on the mat until the children agree to share.

The other product is the Star Stash.  The Star Stash lets you reward your child for good behavior at home, out or traveling.  The system includes a Star Stash case for the child and a carrying tote for the parents.  Includes 20, one star coins and 10, ten star coins. This is a great way to acknowledge your child’s good behavior, encourage responsibility and build self-esteem.

So do you think this would be something that could help you show your child the consistency they so need?  If so, you will be glad to know TOTO Products is sponsoring a give-away on Mommy Ramblings.  One lucky blog reader will win their own Take-Out Time-Out Mat and Star Stash.  Thank you TOTO Products for sponsoring this great give-away on Mommy Ramblings!!!
