Faucet Installation Costs
Although in the overall size of a room the faucet is just a small component, it has the potential to upgrade the look of a bathroom or kitchen. A high-end faucet might create that spa-like environment in an otherwise ordinary bathroom, or it might tie together a cohesive style in the kitchen. Faucets might need to be replaced because of damage as well because having an old faucet can result in water being sprayed around the space or a lack of water pressure when it is needed most. Before replacing or installing a faucet, homeowners should use this guide to get a better idea of the costs involved with a project of this size.

Installing a Bathroom Faucet
One of the most common places to have a new faucet installed is in the bathroom. Since all homes have at least one bathroom sink, and many have several more, replacing them might be something that occurs every few years or whenever the space is redecorated. There is a big variety of faucet types available in the bathroom, and finishes range from brass to stainless steel or even brushed nickel. To calculate the cost of installing a bathroom faucet, start with the cost of the physical faucet itself as well as the potential sink that accompanies the faucet. In addition, expenses will include two hours of labor, equipment and any mounting hardware, and the total will generally run between $244 and $468.
Installing an Outdoor Faucet
Generally, this will be the cheapest faucet installation, but that has to do with the cost of the faucet rather than the cost of labor. Outdoor faucets are generally quite affordable, and they vary little from model to model. It is unusual, in fact, to pay more than $10 for an outdoor faucet. For that reason alone, homeowners can expect to pay as little as $160 for a professional plumber to arrive at the home, install the chosen faucet, clean up and leave.
Installing a Kitchen Faucet
Only slightly more expensive than the bathroom is the kitchen, at least when it comes to faucet installation. Since kitchen faucets are slightly larger than their bathroom counterparts, it can take a few extra minutes of labor to install. In addition, kitchen faucets also have a greater number of functions. A faucet that pulls down or detaches from the base, or even has an attached soap dispenser, will drive up both the costs of labor and the physical cost of the faucet itself. Expect to pay somewhere in the range of $257 to $475 for the kitchen faucet and installation.
It is important to understand that a variety of factors might influence the total cost of faucet installation. As detailed above, the labor required for bathroom, kitchen and outdoor faucets can vary and so can the price of the faucets themselves. In addition, plumbing services will become cheaper the more work homeowners have done at once. Hiring a professional plumber for an hour may be $150, but three hours might be just $300.
