Touchless Faucets Perfect for Little Ones in the Bathroom

Little ones with messy hands turning handles so they can wash up can turn into a messier adventure, but touchless faucet technology can help eliminate some of the extra clean up for parents.

Children who are trying to be big kids like to wash their hands by themselves, but reaching across the sink to turn on the water can often result in a big mess. Soap ends up everywhere but on the child’s hands, water pools on the deck of the sink, and there’s always the danger of hot water potentially causing burns.

Bathroom faucets with touch and touchless technology can make a big difference.

Top-notch brands like Delta, Kohler, Grohe and Moen have done away with old-school handles to control the flow and temperature of water and rely instead on a single lever on the side of their faucets. Parents can position the handle to set how fast water is delivered and at what temperature.

Touch faucets respond to either the wrist or forearm to tap the top of the faucet to summon the water, eliminating the need to include the entire fixture in clean-up.

Smart sensors positioned at the base and sometimes also on the top of the faucet neck respond to objects waving in front of them. Swipe a hand past a sensor for on and again to turn the faucet off.

Kids of all ages will like how easy touch and touchless faucets are to use, and parents will appreciate how smaller messes don’t grow into larger ones.

Warm Metal Finishes Top Faucet Trend in 2015

Shoppers who call eFaucets customer service are often in the market for new fixtures more than a decade after their last faucet purchase or remodel, and they want to know about the most popular finishes available.

Representatives at eFaucets have done their homework, noting that oil-rubbed bronze and brushed brass – warm metal finishes – are more popular in 2015 than classic go-to’s like polished chrome or brushed nickel.

“We get a lot of calls asking about what’s on trend,” team leader Mike Jovanovic said. “There are still some callers who want a shiny finish, but the number of shoppers is increasing who order the oil-rubbed bronze and the newer brushed brass.”

Customers are also willing to mix metal finishes in their kitchens and bathrooms; choosing an oil-rubbed bronze faucet and stainless steel light fixtures, for example.

The writers at decoratorswisdom.com agree.

“Another creative idea that adds plenty of visual interest: incorporate both warm and cool reflective metals into the same space — perhaps combining accents of brass or copper plus chrome,” they said in a recent post about kitchen design trends in 2015.

Faucet manufacturers are paying attention; customers can find polished, matte, and brushed metal finishes in almost every collection available.
