You also need to decide on a style and a color that will not only match the existing decor in your bathroom, but bring its own features to the table as well. There are many different options available to you, so you should do all that you can to help narrow down your choices prior to going shopping and making this a smooth transaction.

If you are interested in purchasing a new bath tub shower faucet but are unsure of what you should be looking for you, you may want to consider the following information.

How Much Are You Willing To Spend on A New Tub and Shower Faucet?

Tub and shower faucets, as well as tub and shower combination units, can range greatly in price based on a number of different features. First of all, brand name faucets will cost much more than lesser known brands regardless of the difference in quality if there even is any.

You should also take into consideration what type of material you would like the faucet to be made from, as more expensive materials can drive up the price of the shower and bath faucet quite quickly. Have a set budget in mind, and try not to go over that when you go shopping. The average price of a shower and tub faucet can be anywhere from one hundred to three hundred dollars based on the specifications mentioned above.

What Material Would You Like The Faucet to Be Made From?

The most popular material that is used for shower and bath tub faucets is chrome. Chrome gives your bathroom a very sleek look and hardly ever sticks out like a sore thumb among the existing decor in your bathroom. However, faucets can come in a range of different styles.

Another popular option that many individuals have been looking for in recent years is the 'aged' look. The aged look usually takes a bronze color, and makes it look dated, aged, or almost antique. It can give your bathroom a very olden times feel that the chrome material is just not able to achieve.

How Many Handles Would You Like The Faucet To Have?

Shower and bathtub faucets come in three primary styles. The first style is the single handle. This is usually a handle that is placed directly below (although several feet below) the actual faucet, and allows you to set the temperature using one handle.

Turning the handle to one side will release the hot water, while the other side will release the cold water. Usually pulling these handles directly out or pushing them upward will change which faucet the water comes from (bath faucet or the water faucet.)

The two handle design is similar, and the only change is that both hot and colt receive their own handle. The three handle design is nice because it allows you to not only control the hot and cold water release, but the faucet that will release the water as well, using the third handle.
