Bathroom Faucet Spacing

Posted by hansjr (My Page) on

What is the ideal widespread faucet spacing in a bathroom. We are using Kohler Caxton 2210 sinks (17x14) and I thought typical spacing for three hole faucets was 8 inches (total, center to center from the left handle to right handle). My marble fabricator is saying they typically drill holes for spacing of 12 inches which seems too large to me. What is ideal, any thoughts? Also, should faucets follow the curve of the sink? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

RE: Bathroom Faucet Spacing

My sink is oval, 16 inches at its widest, and a 12 inch spread would look very strange. Even the spread on my kitchen faucet is only 10 inches. I don't think I've seen anything referencing over 8 inches for a lavatory sink. Mine do follow the curve of the sink. I don't notice it as curved as it isn't very much. A straight line would put the handles further from the edge of the sink than the spout, and I think that would look odd to me.

RE: Bathroom Faucet Spacing

I also have a small oval sink, spacing is 8", and the holes follow the curve. I actually bought a prefabricated granite top, so this spacing must be pretty standard.

12" is WAY too far apart! (Unless you had one of those ginormous 2 or 3 foot sinks? LOL)
