Faucet and sink - how to create the perfect duo?

02 of February '22

The faucet and sink form an area in the bathroom that is used intensively by household members, so ergonomics plays a huge role here. However, we should not forget about design either - because it is about important design elements that affect the entire arrangement. What are the most important rules for the selection of faucets and washbasins?

Both the bathroom faucet and the washbasin should not be chosen independently, as they form a closely cooperating duo. The type of basin often also narrows down the options when it comes to purchasing a faucet. Freestanding basins offer the option of locating a high-body faucet on the countertop, or require the installation of wall-mounted faucets. On the other hand, basins with prepared holes coordinate with matching stand mixers.

Convenience and important dimensions

The simplest rule is as follows: a small basin requires the purchase of a small faucet, while a spacious one requires a larger model. This is a seemingly obvious observation, but unfortunately we tend to forget about this rule. A mixer with a compact design and a short spout will work well with a small basin - there will be no annoying splashes of water, and the stream of water will make it easier to wash hands or face. On the other hand, the long spout and higher body of the faucet are perfect for large basins, providing greater convenience of use. The KLUDI PURE&STYLE mixer series includes both smaller, larger and taller basin faucets. In their design, large horizontal planes are harmoniously combined with organic curves, and special attention is paid to the precisely crafted, monolithic form. The great popularity of the PURE&STYLE series prompted the manufacturer to expand the product range with faucets in matte black. So the new year will bring new, interesting color solutions in line with the most fashionable trends.

Another important aspect is the right dimensions and distances. This is especially true for countertop (otherwise known as stilettos) and wall-mounted faucets. The height of the former should be matched to the washbasin - it is recommended that the spout of the faucet reach about 10 cm above the edge of the bowl. It is also important that it is properly profiled, so that the water goes to the very center of the basin. Here a great solution is the s-pointer aerator in KLUDI faucets. It allows you to adjust the angle of the water stream depending on your needs and the depth of the basin. The aerator is located at the end of the spout, so you only need to touch it with your finger to direct the stream. In the case of a wall-mounted basin faucet - it is best if it is mounted at a height of about 20 cm above the top edge of the ceramic.

Stand mixer or wall mixer?

Stand mixers can be mounted on the edge of the basin or directly on the countertop. For free-standing basins, faucets with a high body are used.
For wall-mounted and furniture sinks, edge-mounted faucets are particularly suitable, and for countertop or flush-mounted basins - wall-mounted or countertop-mounted, i.e. behind the basin. Countertop faucets also take on the role of practical bathroom decorations. For example, models from the KLUDI AMEO series are the quintessence of modern design. Their purist form, combined with rounded lines, is perfectly in line with the latest trends.

Wall-mountedfaucets are a recommendable option, especially for modern, minimalist interiors. They can stand out with their simple forms, and can also be largely hidden in the wall (only the spout and handle remain on top). Another advantage? They do not take up space on the edge of the washbasin, where you can set a set of cosmetics. A perfect example of such a fixture is the KLUDI BOZZ wall-mounted faucet. Its design skillfully combines minimalism with delicate lines and classic elegance. Soft, cylindrical shapes work well in both modern and traditional bathrooms. In the KLUDI BOZZ series, we have a choice of chrome or black faucets. The dark, matte surface adds extra elegance to the fixtures; they go well with a white sink, creating an interesting contrasting combination together.

Quality first

Dimensions, installation method, design - these are all very important aspects of choice, but the quality of workmanship of both the basin and the faucet remains crucial. In the case of the latter, attention should be paid to all structural elements, i.e. the body, spout, handles, aerator, heads or gaskets. KLUDI offers a variety of basin faucets that perfectly combine thoughtful design with full functionality, high-quality materials and attention to the smallest details.
