When choosing the best contemporary faucets for your home, look for clean lines and fresh design.
You may want to select single handled contemporary faucets or vessel models.
Vessel faucets can be both fun and highly innovative, as they allow water to be viewed from the traditionally closed upper tap section. Having vessel contemporary faucets in your home can create waterfall-like effect since the cut-away tap style lets more water flow outward. Since the flow of the water is increased, the sound is also, so be sure you will enjoy this difference before deciding on this type of faucet.
Single-handled faucet styles are another possibility if you want a contemporary look. The water and temperature control aren’t as easy to adjust as with more traditional, two-handled models, but many people with contemporary homes are willing to forgo this for a cleaner, neater style which may also give a faster water flow. If you’re not sure if single-handled contemporary faucets are what you’d prefer, look for a distributor with working demonstrator models or try these styles at friends’ or neighbors’ homes.
Whatever faucet handle type you end up choosing, it’s best not to pick ones with a lot of detail. Contemporary faucets should appear elegant, yet uncluttered. If you want to keep a contemporary look in your bathroom or kitchen, but need more style, consider a dramatically shaped model such as a goose neck or an unusual finish such as matte black.
Choosing faucets for your contemporary home can be a fun and easy experience if you consider your options before making your final choice. Look for products from brand name faucet manufacturers that offer a warranty or guarantee. Ease of installation is another consideration you should make when picking out contemporary faucets.
