You know how sometimes you go into a store with something specific in mind and realize there’s only one option that is somewhat similar to what you pictured in your head?
That’s been my experience when looking for bathroom faucets so far, although I have a few different ideas of what I like. I just know I want something different. And the stores I’ve been in either had nothing different, or there was like one faucet that I kind of, sort of liked…but I didn’t have anything to really choose from. I wanted options! As in, several “special” feeling faucets that weren’t your average, run-of-the-mill selections.
This morning I decided to stop in to a certain specialty store (which shall not be named) to check out their selection of bathroom faucets. I figured a more specialized store would probably have several options I liked.
And boy, was I right. They had a LOT of choices that I loved. So we sat down with a salesperson and began to narrow it down to just a few to choose from. I had seen a few items from the black taps range from Meir that I liked but I was still undecided. I hadn’t paid attention to the prices on the wall, so when we sat down at the desk and I asked her how much a certain faucet was, I almost laughed out loud when she told me the price. It was $750, you guys. Are you kidding me?
Maybe some people have $750 to spend on a bathroom faucet, but not this girl. But at that point, I was already sitting down at a desk with the salesperson and felt like I had to keep a straight face while she went over several more options with me. The entire time Henry was trying (successfully) to escape my grasp, run around the store, and yank on toilet handles and light fixtures. Every time I went to grab him, he’d start whining, squirming and grunting until I finally let him go do it all over again. He even lost his shoe, which we later found in the middle of the store. I was sure he was going to break one of those $750 bathroom faucets. Although everything was so p\fretty and I loved looking…I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
We finally made it out of the store (without breaking anything) and I sent Brandon a text laughing about how expensive my taste apparently is.
But I left that store determined to find affordable bathroom faucets that I loved. And so my internet search began. What a wonderful thing internet shopping is, amiright toddler moms?
Anyway, I’ve put together four different groups of affordable, pretty, and unique faucets. There are antique brass, matte black, chrome and nickel, and oil rubbed bronze options. Links are below the images for easy shopping.
