Anyone with experience with Wall Mount Faucets?We are in the middle of a down to the studs Master bath remodel...It's an awkward space, we are looking at a 42" rectangular drop in sink,single drain, 4" deep with approx.2" lip,(Scarabeo by Nameeks Art).. the base cabinet isn't deep enough for faucets to be mounted on the cabinet to the back of the sink, there is just enough room on the sides for toothbrushes, and the sink doesn't accommodate faucets...The pix we've seen have wall mount faucets...
My question...How high up should we mount the faucets? I don't want to get a shower when I'm washing my hands! We have pretty good water pressure, which ruled out vessel sinks..I can't really gauge the distance in the pic I've seen of this sink.
Personal opinion: That sink is too large for the base. Wall mount faucets were used a lot in past centuries and those I worked on were a royal pain to repair since they seldom had shutoff valves and they did not have modern valve seats. Newer ones are probably much better but I have never worked on one.
Probably the best way to judge the needed height of the wall-mount faucet is to look at standard faucets in a home center. In a bathroom you don't need much height for a faucet.
Further on a large bathroom sink; the bigger they are the more you have to keep clean. Think of tooth paste and shaving debris.
The base cabinet is 60". It's actually a kitchen sink base cabinet, so the sink should fit length, width and depth. We chose this single sink so that two people "could" be at the sink at the same time.....
My concern is that if the faucets are too high on the wall, water will splash up and over, as happens with some vessel sinks, and I'm not finding any info on height placement.
