Have you ever noticed how some home just have a rhythm and flow to them? Have you noticed how coordinating items can really pull the entire style of a room together? I have and this structure gives me peace in home remolding. I let the experts decide what styles work best together and I run with it. For instance, American Standard has been around for years designing innovative products with styles as modern or traditional as you are. They make it easy to choose a bathroom faucet.

How to choose a bathroom faucet

With American Standard’s impressive line of faucets, there is a perfect faucet to fit your style and needs. The best way to narrow down your search is to decide on whether you want a single or dual handles. Next, decided the finish. Next, decide what your overall style is. They have everything from traditional to casual to modern. The American Standard website is easy to navigate and you can sort by price, style, and features such as ADA compliant.

Moments Monoblock Faucet

American Standard product lines work well together, matching your taste with styles to match. I am a self-defined as traditional with an element of contemporary & modern mixed in. We furnished our kids’ bathroom with the American Standard Generations line of furniture which is traditional in nature. We selected the Moments Monoblock Faucet for our kids bathroom sink and coordinating faucet for the bathtub to add a more contemporary, modern element to the room. I think the results are astonishing as they are beautiful.

This faucet is a little more modern in nature, to fit with the Frank Lloyd Wright style that we are attempting to preserve in our house. This is a beautiful faucet from all angles.

Don’t mind the images of the photographer, myself in the following picture. I have no idea how to take a photo of such a shiny object without getting myself in the picture! LOL I really need to take some lessons or something!

Striking, huh? I just love the chrome finish and how shiny and remarkable it looks. Nothing says a clean bathroom like a shiny faucet, right? You can tell I like to polish fixtures, can’t you? If you know of any excellent products that keep faucets free of water spots, please let me know! I’m struggling with hard water at this house…

So, not only does American Standard deliver gorgeous fixtures but also reliable products you can trust. They are built to last and to be drip-free. Yes! Their faucets are covered by a limited lifetime warranty on function and finish.

Easy Faucet Installation

They claim this is “the easiest faucet to install, guaranteed.” My husband agrees. This one-piece design is simple to install, no surprises, nothing complicated. Remember to install the faucet before you drop the sink into the vanity if this is new construction. Much easier that way. If you have a tighter space, don’t worry. The flexible stainless steel cable installs effortlessly even in small spaces.

Why we chose Moments Monoblock Faucet

So, why did we choose the Moments Monoblock Faucet specifically for our kids’ bathroom? Yes, we like the style, however, safety is #1 for kids bathrooms. The Moments Monoblock Faucets has an Adjustable Hot Limit Safety Stop. What does this do? It limits the amount of hot water allowed to mix with cold. Genius! Now we don’t have to worry about our kids turning the faucet on and ALL hot water coming out. I love that the safety stop reduces the risk of accidental scalding.

Also, the design is perfect for kids with little hands. The one-handle design makes it easy for kids to push up to turn on and back down to turn off. My 3 & 5 year old kids have no problem operating this faucet. Plus, it is ADA compliant.

    Great design. As a former cleaning lady I can see how this would be super easy to keep clean and shiny. No extra lines and decor to fill with dust and gunk.

  2. Cindy says:

    Glad my review could help, Sarabeth. If you are buying new faucets, you might as well do it right with great products from American Standard that has your kids safety in mind. We love the peace it gives knowing our kids won’t get burned!

    This seems like a great faucet…the Adjustable Hot Limit Safety Stop is amazing! I’ve never heard of anything like that before. Perfect for kids! We’re actually looking at purchasing a new faucets for our bathrooms and this was very helpful! Thanks!

  4. Pam L says:

    I did not know about the hot water safety stop feature, thanks for passing that point on. I usually choose faucets with washers, I had a few washer-less ones and they were not worth a darn.

  5. jennifer mosgrove says:

    Love the look of that faucet & I never knew faucets had a hot water safety stop feature available. My 2 yr old loves to do the whole hand washing process himself now so that would be great. Oh how I wish we hadn’t remodeled our bathroom before he was born! I’m jealous of all your kid friendly stuff!

  6. Rebecca says:

    Love the safety feature and look of this faucet! It would be a great change for our bathroom, now that our son is growing and will be able to reach the faucet soon.

  7. Angie H. says:

    I like the idea of keeping the same theme in a home, even in the faucets. Going with one company for most of those makes a lot of sense and adds elegance.

  8. Cindy says:

    It’s amazing what changing just a faucet can do for the entire bathroom. I wasn’t sure how I would like the single faucet but now I feel like it is the best choice, especially for kids!

  9. R Hicks says:

    Replacing our lavatory sink faucet is on my to do list. These are very helpful tips. I think we will go with the taller type and single handle

  10. Nicole says:

    So you did a great job also picking out your beautiful faucet! I just love, love, love the idea of the Adjustable Hot Limit Safety Stop. It is GENIUS!!

  11. Alycia says:

    A lot of thought went into this faucet and it makes so much sense. The large single handle is perfect for little ones.

  12. Rose Habart says:

    The “hot limit safety stop” is very, very cool!! With two toddlers that love to play in the water, that would be great!

  13. Cindy says:

    There are a lot of beautiful choices, Richard. I can see why you may want a designer’s assistance. In the end, it is all about what you like and what is your style.

  14. Richard T. says:

    I would be asking for designer help in choosing my faucets. Very interesting, direct analysis of how to choose a bathroom faucet.

  15. mamabunny13 says:

    I would need the help from someone like American Standard for sure because I would not have a clue as how to decide what goes best!
