Moen bathroom faucets offer some of the best faucets in quality, style and function. Since its origins in 1937 when Al Moen designed the first single-handle faucet, Moen has become synonymous with excellence. His innovative faucet became so popular that it became a household name within a few short years. The Moen name lives on today, and interior designers and homeowners alike trust it to produce elegant bathrooms.
Durability - It is well known among architects, interior designers and engineers alike that a brass faucet fixture will far outlast any of its plated or non metal counterparts. This is particularly true when you constantly run hard water through your bathroom faucets: hard water will corrode most other metals (even plated ones) yet it will have little to no effect on a brass bathroom faucet. Actually, it is not only the metal itself that lasts a long time, but its finish as well: brass bathroom faucets, especially those that are coated with electroplated chrome or a simple finish that prevents oxidation, are known to last a lifetime with little need for scrutiny in the form of polishes and waxes.
There is a bathroom faucet finish to suit any taste. Traditionally polished chrome has been the most popular. While this gleaming finish can be attractive, it requires more upkeep because of water spotting. Brushed finishes such as brushed chrome or brushed nickel offer less gleam, but nevertheless are very attractive, stylish and far easier to keep up especially in a busy household. There are also many rubbed finishes that add to the styling and give more of a vintage look. Copper and even black faucets are now available.
Choosing the right bathroom faucet for an existing sink. If you are not starting fresh with a new sink as well as new faucets, then you need to match up your faucet with your sink. If the faucets install directly to the sink, then you need to determine if the existing sink is set up for single hole, minispread, widespread or centerset faucets, so you can match up to the existing holes. Centerset faucets are where the handles and spout are mounted to a single base. Minispread and widespread faucets are where each element of the faucet assembly is individually installed onto the sink. And the single-hole is self explanatory.
