Widespread faucets are designed for 6 inch to 16 inch drillings for three hole
pre-drilled installations. Spout and handles appear as three separate pieces rather than being joined
on a base like centerset faucets. These faucet sets too are available in many handle stylings, with
either short spouts or the longer necked styles, and come in brass, nickel, chrome, rubbed bronze as
well as all other attractive and popular finishes.
This faucet style is more appropriate on a larger sink or deck-mounted for use
with an above counter sink. When paired with a vessel sink, it is important to take note of spout height and
reach. The spout should reach center of basin to avoid unnecessary splashing. Prices vary depending on
selection choice, but are competitive with other faucet systems.
A widespread faucet installation takes up more room, but adds an elegant
and more unique look to a vanity area.
