Guide to Bathtub Faucets

Installation Types:

Freestanding or Floor Mounted - This type of faucet is for clawfoot tubs and other freestanding bathtubs. It is mounted onto the floor and some styles feature exposed pipes or supply lines. Most floor-mounted faucets require under-floor access for installation, so be sure to check with your plumber to make sure your choice of faucet will work with your set-up.

Deck Mount - The deck refers to the flat surface on the tub rim or a ledge adjacent to the bath. This type of faucet is compatible with many styles of freestanding tubs, and also drop-in or under-mount installations. For most faucet configurations, you'll need to know the center to center measurement of your  faucet hole drilllings or purchase a faucet with variable centers.

Wall Mount - If your bathtub doesn't have any faucet holes, a faucet that mounts on the wall of your bathroom is an excellent choice. A wall-mount faucet is compatible with any style of bathtub that sits adjacent to a bathroom wall. However, when choosing your faucet, you'll need to ensure the spout is long enough to reach from the wall to the bath. 

Tub Wall Mount - This traditional style of tub faucet mounts to holes drilled in the wall of the tub. The faucets are typically mounted on 3-3/8" centers and often feature a gooseneck spout or an antique-style downward spout. 


Style: Most bathtub faucets handles are available in lever or cross styles. 

Number: Bathtub faucets are typically available in two different handle configurations. Two-handle bath faucets have one handle to control the hot water and another for the cold. Single handle tub faucets have one handle that controls both flow and temperature. 


The finish of your faucet can help set the mood for space and customarily coordinates with the other hardware in the room. Our tub faucets are available in a variety of finishes, including Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Polished Nickel, Polished Brass, and Oil Rubbed Bronze.
