The best-rated lavatory faucets as of 2015 are the Toto Axiom EcoPower faucet, Toto Ryohan EcoPower lav faucet, IKEA HJUVIK kitchen faucet and Kohler Karbon deck-mounted faucet, according to The Family Handyman. Although the IKEA HJUVIK is called a kitchen faucet, the design works in bathrooms as well.
The best lavatory faucets fall into hands-free, water-savers, pull-down and ergonomic categories. Toto has top faucets in both the hands-free and water-savers categories. The Toto Axiom EcoPower faucet is a hands-free marvel that charges itself as it's used. Users can also change the flow level. Although it works when the sensor senses hands, there's an override switch that the user can flip to fill containers. This faucet requires at least 10 uses per day to remain charged.
The top water saver is the Toto Ryohan EcoPower lav faucet, another hands-free, sensor-activated water. Although this eco-friendly faucet uses less water, the built-in aerator keeps the flow rate steady. The IKEA HJUVIK kitchen faucet also finds use in bathrooms and is top-rated in the pull-down and pullout category, giving it versatility. The Kohler Karbon deck-mounted faucet is versatile and tops the ergonomic design category. This faucet contains several joints, allowing users to fill both tall and small containers with ease.
