12 Bathroom Faucets In The Marketplace Now (PHOTOS)

For the most part, installing new bathroom faucets is an often overlooked task that seems more tedious than necessary, unless there's a serious water leakage problem. But if you've been using the same faucet for a while, it may be corroded or tarnished on the inside. Moreover, new faucets can easily update and refresh the look in a bathroom and powder room, and installation is actually relatively easy.

Bringing in some new bathroom faucets has definitely been on our to-do list for some time now, and if you're in the market for some new ones, keep these two very basic general points in mind to start:

- Decide on the type of faucet you want. There are two types: Centerset (one-piece faucet that comes with the handles) and widespread (faucet and handles are separate).

- Make sure you have the right size faucet, which can range from 4"-12" and would depend on how far apart the holes are in your sink.

With that in mind, check out the range of faucets that we're eyeing right now, and make sure to watch the full tutorial video at the end on how to install a bathroom faucet.
