Bath Faucets

Give your bathroom a spa-like feel when you choose from our collection of bath faucets at Pottery Barn. Crafted with high-quality materials for longevity, durability and reliability, each of our bathroom fixtures comes in as many styles as there are personalities in the world. From midcentury classics to modernized works of technological art, we make it easy to shop for faucets to match current or new decor. Choose from a variety of installation and faucet styles with finishes in attractive colors like warm rose gold, oil-rubbed bronze and glittering high-polish chrome and make your bathroom an inviting paradise that’s also functional and easy to use.

Not sure which faucet to choose? Start by assessing your space. Most of our bath faucets come in one of two styles, wall-mounted or surface-mounted. Wall-mounted fixtures work best in bathtubs and large, roomy sinks, while surface-mounted fixtures attach to the countertop, usually directly behind the sink basin itself. Be sure to measure your counter or tub space and current sink if replacing existing hardware, as each fixture is made to fit a specific size. You can find the sizing information in the product description for each individual faucet – look for the words “fits sink openings” and heed the measurement provided.

Once you’ve chosen the style and size of your faucet, it’s time to choose your preferred features. An aerator will expand water, allowing you to use less for many of the same tasks, and is an excellent choice for anyone who prefers to live green or who relies on a well. Braided stainless-steel hose on the interior of your faucet is often preferred, mostly because it increases the fixture’s ability to resist rust and mineral deposits, thereby extending its lifespan. Overall water flow rate will be expressed in the product description as GPM; this stands for gallons per minute. A lower GPM will use less water over time, but may not feel as forceful as bath fixtures with higher GPM ratings. If you prefer the pounding water of a forceful shower, choose a fixture with a higher GPM instead. Finally, check the type of drain assembly as well – pop-up drains are permanently fixed into place, often with a screw-on top and lever behind the faucet that allow you to lift or depress them in seconds. Conversely, regular drain assemblies don’t contain a drain cover, and should be used with a standard rubber or stainless-steel plug instead.

You picked your style, you picked its design. You chose the features that work best for your home – now it’s time to select a finish that blends well with your other décor, or to begin a new decorating trend in your bathroom. Your bathroom faucet’s finish impacts how it looks, but it can also impact its durability in certain circumstances. Stainless-steel provides an additional layer of protection against moisture, while cast brass is thicker and better able to withstand use over time. Other finishes are for aesthetics only, and simply serve you by making your fixtures look nicer when installed. These finishes include chrome, polished nickel, satin nickel, antique bronze, oil-rubbed bronze and brass.

For most bathrooms, high-polished chrome or stainless-steel is an excellent all-around choice that blends well with everything from clean, crisp white bath towels to bright, bold shades like wine red and deepest black. Next in line are polished and satin nickel; both offer a muted, pearly surface that reflects subtle light from nearby lamps and sconces. Polished nickel appears more silvery-white, while satin nickel reflects a slightly warmer shade that resembles a very light rose gold. Choose antique brass or oil-rubbed bronze when blending your new bathroom faucet with antique furnishings and midcentury décor; their dark, industrialized appearance makes the perfect match for warm, natural wood elements.
