Wall-mounted faucets can refresh kitchen and bathroom life. These sleek faucets cover the whole spectrum, from minimalism to modern style. Since they are no longer as common as they were before, they have a very elegant design. However, installing wall-mounted faucets is much more difficult than installing the most common deck sinks. There are a few challenges you should be aware of before you try.

In theory, wall-mounted faucets should be easier to install than any other type of faucet. Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. Installing faucets on the wall poses many unique problems, and while it is not insurmountable, it complicates the situation. First of all, the faucet is usually the last thing installed in a major renovation, and it's almost the finishing touch. In the case of wall fittings, however, the hardware must be installed in such a way that the wall is still exposed at the beginning of the construction work. Standard faucets can be installed directly into pre-drilled holes in sinks or counters. Wall faucets, however, require more or less manual installation (later installation). This means that you need to have everything ready before any installation - faucets and water pipes, sinks, plasterboard, spray panels. Worst of all, the wall-mounted faucet has to be installed between two wall-mounted studs. If the bolts on the wall behind the sink are not properly aligned, they will need to be moved.

Mounting the faucet at the correct height is just as important as setting the distance correctly. There is no set standard for the installation height of the wall mount faucet. Unfortunately, there isn't much room for trial and error as you need to install the installation hardware before you can connect (test) the faucet yourself.

Perhaps the biggest complaint about wall-mounted kitchen and bathroom faucets is that they are more prone to splashing water. Deck-mounted faucets are usually installed in pre-drilled holes, which means that the faucet is always perfectly aligned with the drain pipe. However, a wall-mounted faucet is much more difficult to balance the correct height, depth, and orientation, especially when used with unusual sinks or sinks without a countertop, or when cascading. Install the water tank too far in either direction. When the water tank is opened, the water hits the curve of the water tank at the wrong angle and splashes and splatters.

The installation of wall mount faucets on outside walls (may not be allowed in all areas - be sure to check local regulations) presents unique problems. If you live in a colder climate, the pipes will be more exposed to these elements and will freeze more easily. It is important to take steps to ensure that all hardware is properly isolated and to be aware of the risks, especially in very cold weather.

Although replacing the standard faucet is a very simple and easy self-service job, once you have a wall-mounted faucet installed it can really be kept. The pipes are built and usually tiled on the wall, which means that to replace the faucet you will at least have to tear down the tailgate and replace it. It's not just about changing the style: it's the same when the faucet is broken. You really want to make sure that the faucet you buy is of sturdy brass construction and is of high quality, which will extend the life of the faucet. And do your research: buying a faucet from a well-known and well-known company that can easily provide replacement parts means the difference between repairing the faucet and replacing the entire wall.

In summary, it can be said that the challenges that wall fittings bring with them are not insurmountable. Knowing what they are before starting a project is the best way to minimize many of them. Wall-mounted faucets are beautiful, stylish, and timeless, and well worth the extra effort for many people.
