57 Affordable Bathroom Faucets

When it comes to picking out a bathroom faucet it use to mean picking from the meager and quite limited selection at your local hardware store, or trying to navigate one of the bathroom showrooms just to find out that the one that you like costs more than the rent did on your first apartment and has a 8 week lead time. Fortunately things have changed and these here interwebs are filled with a bounty of wonderful options that are a lot more budget and lead-time friendly.


Now don’t get me wrong there is definitely a time and a place for high end faucets, and in the end you pay for what you get, but we really wanted to do some digging to find some stylish options that are both budget friendly, quick to ship and could work in your space in case you aren’t quite ready or able to spend on a higher end faucet. So without further ado we present to you some of our favorite budget friendly faucets in brass, black and silver. There are so many more options beyond this at all of the different sources we pulled from (so browse away), but we tried to narrow it down to a few of our favorites to help you guys out during your next bathroom remodel.

First up… Brass:


1. Heritage Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 2. Lindo Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 3. Royale Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 4. Vintage Double Handle Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 5. Victorian Porcelain Single Hole Bathroom Faucet | 6. Magellan Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 7. Opulence Single Handle Single Hole Bathroom Faucet | 8. Modern Antique Brass Finish Deck Mount Bathroom Faucet | 9. Verdanza Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 10. Metropolitan Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 11. Victorian Porcelain Handles Bathroom Faucet | 12. Restoration Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 13. Millennium Double Handle Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 14. Victorian Widespread Bathroom-Faucet | 15. Essex Centerset Lavatory Faucet | 16. Rozin Gold Polished Two Knobs Basin Faucet Single Hole Vanity Sink Mixer Tap | 17. Millennium Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 18. Antique Brass Finished Deck Mounted Widespread Bathroom

If you have a widespread faucet then #1 is a great traditional option that is simple and stylish. #15 would be a great addition to any bathroom with a traditional vibe and a mini-spread setup, and at under $90 you can’t really go wrong. And #18 looks VERY similar to the designer faucet that Brady has in his bathroom, but at a much more affordable price point. Up next is black. Keep in mind that some of these are a straight black where as some have a more oil rubbed bronze finish that can appear a dark brown, so if you have questions on finish be sure to reach out to the manufacturer before purchasing.


1. Dyconn Faucet Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 2. Fauceture Concord Monoblock Lavatory Single Handle Bathroom Faucet | 3. Dual Handles Brass Bathroom Centerset Faucet | 4. Oil Rubbed Bronze Waterfall Bathroom Sink Faucet | 5. Nu French Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 6. Oil Rubbed Bronze Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 7. Water Onyx Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 8. Oil Rubbed Bronze Single Hole Bathroom Faucet | 9. Mid-Arc Bathroom Faucet | 10. Marquette Widespread Mid-Arc Bathroom Faucet | 11. Rogue Single Handle Faucet | 12. Oil-Rubbed Bronze Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 13.Onyx Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 14. Oil Rubbed Bronze Deck Mounted Widespread Bathroom Sink Faucet | 15. Restoration Mini Widespread Bathroom Sink Faucet

#2 is simple, understated and at such a great price point. I love the longer neck on #5, and if you have a mini-spread then #12 would be a great option. Last but not least we have silver (or chrome/nickel)


1. Carlson Lavatory Faucet | 2. Cassidy Single Handle Bathroom Faucet | 3. Gibson Standard Bathroom Faucet | 4. Concord Bathroom Faucet | 5. Continental Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 6. English Country Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 7. Royale Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 8. Bancroft Centerse Low Arc Bathroom Faucet | 9. English Country Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 10. AquaLife Standard Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 11. One Handle Single Hole Mixer Vanity Basin Chrome Modern Oval Spout | 12. French Country Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 13. NuWave French Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 14. Chrome High Arc Bathroom Faucet | 15. Metropolitan Onyx Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 16. Eurosmart Widespread Bathroom Faucet | 17. Teapot Centerset Low Arc Bathroom Faucet | 18. Double Handle Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 19. Cadell Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 20. Single Hole Single Handle Bathroom Faucet | 21. Royale Centerset Bathroom Faucet | 22. Premier Wellington Lead-Free Centerset Two-Handle Lavatory Faucet | 23.Victorian Widespread Mini Bathroom Faucet | 24. European Style Lavatory Faucet Cross Handles

#1, #3, and #4 are all awesome options, and #17 at $34 just doesn’t seem possible but it is. I also love #8, it would look so pretty in a kids bathroom with a large farmhouse style sink, and if you are looking for something more modern then #24 at just $50 is very good.

So folks, have you tried any of these before, or seen any of them in person? If so, then be sure to leave a comment below. I’m up in Oregon today doing a speaking engagement but will be home later this evening and am looking forward to the weekend with the kids, the sun, and our newly tiled courtyard area. TGIF and have a great weekend.

This is great! I know the two knob faucets look really cool, but how functional are they? Is it a pain to turn two different knobs? Just wondering because I love the look but am hesitant to get away from a single knob faucet…

I prefer two handles for bathroom sinks because usually both hands are free, and it saves energy for the hot water heater. Many times using bathroom sink we only need cold water. For the kitchen faucet one handle is better because often only have one hand free.

I wish this round up included some wall-mount options. 🙂

Wall mount faucets tend to pretty expensive because they require a lot of plumbing work. You have to have them roughed into the wall behind drywall and have special water lines. They aren’t always a budget friendly option.

I have 2 knob faucets at home (there when we purchased the house) and I don’t like them. It may not seem like a big deal to turn two faucets to get the right temperature but I almost never bother and just use one side most of the time. If you have small kids it can be an issue with scalding if they leave the hot water side running. I will be replacing them all when we redo the bathrooms in the next few years.

Not sure if it’s just me but awhile ago all of the pics on your blog got tiny. Half the width of the text. It’s really hard to see the pics especially on your roundup posts (which are wonderful – thank you!). Then if I try and zoom in I get kicked off the page (I’m guessing because there are a lot of ads and content per page). I have an iPhone 7 that I keep updated and don’t have this problem on other site so I thought I would bring it up in case no one else has. Thanks for everything you put together!

Hi Aimee & Pakster –

I’m sorry that you’re having difficulty viewing the images. I’ve checked it on another iPhone 7 device and am unable to reproduce the issue.

If it’s not too much of a hassle, would you mind emailing me your contact information at and I could work with you on resolving the issue? I’d really appreciate it and am sure that Emily would as well.

Mine does this as well on my 2 month old 7 Plus. The intro images are fine, but when you actually click into the blog post itself, the images are down to that 1/2 size.

We have number 12 from the brass collection installed on our double vanity. I’ll be honest, that’s one purchase that I regret – not because they don’t function well, but because I chose to save money on the faucets out of all the things. Now, every time I look at them (which is every day), I think, “I should’ve saved somewhere else but splurged on the faucets.” Oh well. You live and you learn, right?

Thank you for finding affordable options! I often look through these posts when I’m sourcing. Keep these coming!

Cartoon HD is the best app I have come across in recent years. It is heartening to note that these apps are free of cost and also give us the best offers without any cost.
In today’s Internet, it is essential to note that nothing is gratis. For more details check the process of download

Great roundup! I have brass #9 and silver #19 in a guest bath and half bath respectively, and we’ve been really happy with both of them. Our plumber installed them and they’ve been functioning great and are very smooth to operate.

Hi- I have been wanting to switch to brass faucets and handles, but was wondering if they have to be polished like brass decor items? Is there a good option that doesn’t turn? Thanks!

Reply to  Kelli

Hi Kelli! As someone who has spent over 10 years designing faucets and other decorative plumbing products, I can tell you that the only brass finishes that will ‘turn’ are the ones that are listed as ‘living finishes’. Those are meant to age and develop a patina, and are typically more expensive. Most brass or gold finishes offered by major plumbing brands now (Delta, Kohler, Moen, American Standard, Pfister, etc) are made to be durable and will not turn regardless of the sheen of finish (meaning polished, satin, brushed etc.).

Oh yes, and maybe perhaps if you get one that’s really really REALLY cheap. But in that case, the fact that it’s brass, gold, chrome, or any other hue isn’t what would cause it to turn, it would just be a low quality finish in general.

So helpful! ?? Thanks!

Unfortunately I ‘ve found that you get what you pay for with faucets. If you are willing to replace them in 5 or so years then by all means go with something inexpensive. I am trying to do the one and done on things like faucets so it is worth it to me to spend a little more.

This list is amazing, I’m really glad to see all these options. I never thought it possible.

Thank you so much I’m building a new house and got stuck on bathroom fixtures and lighting. Building a modern farm house style.
How do feel about gold fixtures and do you think all fixtures throughout the home need to be the same?

Hi have #4 from the black selection but mine are in stainless steel. We love them! They look way more expensive than they were, feel very weighty and not cheap and have performed great!

Hi Emily, I love, love, love this blog, your style, and basically everything you do… but can you please get rid of the banner ad at the bottom of the screen? All the other ads I can live with but this one is breaking my heart! It just gets in the way and narrows down my view of this lovely site 🙁

We’ve had #1 in the brass roundup in our 30s deco bathroom (in chrome though) for four years and it’s still gorgeous. Feels nice and hefty and I love it.

Great round up! I’m building a house so have a number of faucets to choose, and all of these round-ups are very helpful! 🙂 Does anyone have experience with the Kingston Brass brand? I noticed that a number of the faucets in the round up are by this brand, but I haven’t heard much about them or their reliability.

Try searching Amazon for them. That is what I do when I need reviews.

I just bought a place and redoing my bathrooms…I’m loving the look of brass for master bath but have been scared to go for it. Would u do all fixtures in brass or would u recommend missing finishes?

I vote for brass! Beautiful faucets!

I have been searching and high and low for the curved corner floor mirror you have in your bedroom. I see there is a similar mirror in your bathroom. Can you please share the source?
