You can find a lot of bathroom faucets with just the right length to fill the average sink. You might be wondering, however, if there is anything wrong with having a short faucet. The answer is related to aesthetics as well as functionality.

Even though shorter faucets are often aesthetically pleasing, more extended faucets are functional. A long faucet can reach all areas of the sink and provides more options. An example would be using the bottom of the sink as an area for storing towels or toiletries. Shorter faucets are often hard to reach. Sometimes it is challenging to wash thick hair or wash razors while standing on one leg at the sink.
