It won’t require the help of a plumber or remodeler, and the box comes with everything you need to get started. The flow and temperature of the water is controlled by a single-handle, so it only requires a single-hole installation. It can be adapted for a multi-hole sink with the additional purchase of matching deck plate from the same trusted manufacturer.

Cons:

Hands-free faucets start the flow of water using high-tech motion detecting sensors. These sensors minimize the amount of times the faucet handle is touched, which is a powerful tool in guarding against the spread of germs. Those with arthritis or other motion-affecting conditions that make it hard to grasp a handle may want to choose a faucet that has a hands-free function. Motion detecting faucets are generally more expensive than traditional faucets, but you should choose the faucet that is best for your family’s needs.

This faucet has a minimalist design which saves space on your counter. It is made for a single-hole sink. However, you can convert it for a three-hole sink using a deck plate. There is a matching baseplate available from the same manufacturer with a matching finish.
