When it comes to renovating your bathroom, there are so many details to take into consideration, perhaps even some that are new to you. When it comes to your sink’s hardware, you really can’t go wrong choosing between a Delta or Moen bathroom faucet.

Both will look great and perform well, so it’s really just a matter of preference. However, one of the faucets is slightly more complicated than the other, technically-speaking, so your choice may come down to an issue of practicality.

Delta Bathroom Faucets

Delta Faucet is the company that introduced the first touch faucets to the residential market. Sensors placed in various locations inside the faucet measure the amount of electricity — also known as capacitance — your body transfers to the faucet, allowing you to turn the water on and off with the back of your hand or even your wrist.

With the addition of .Xt technology, you now have three faucets in one: manual, touch and touchless. Delta placed an extra sensor at the base of their bathroom faucets so you only have to wave your hand in front of it to operate it. .Xt faucets run on both batteries and AC power, so you have the choice for how you power your faucet.

Delta's .Xt bathroom faucets are all single-handle, but if all that technology really isn't a selling point for you, you can also browse their centerset and widespread faucets that come in a myriad of styles and finishes.

Moen Bathroom Faucets

Moen has long offered bathroom faucets in a variety of styles, finishes and configurations so you have the options you need to make your bathroom inspiration come to life. Traditional touches, contemporary curves, and modern edges come in polished chrome, polished nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and brushed nickel.

Moen took the touchless faucets you've seen in restaurant and airport bathrooms and revolutionized them for the residential market. Moen added modern design touches to make it easier for you to integrate touchless technology into your bathroom. Moen's touchless faucets are not available in any other form factor, so if you choose to go this route, know that you are making a touchless commitment.

Adding a touchless faucet to your bathroom can both help prevent the spread of germs and help you keep your faucet free of water spots and smudges, extending the life of your faucet.  

So What Do You Choose?

No matter if you choose a Delta or a Moen faucet, you'll add quality to your bathroom. Prices for Delta range from $135 to $949, and Moen price ranges start at $125 and go up to $1,150. Your choice, though, will likely come down to whether or not you want bells and whistles with your bathroom faucet.

If you need technology in every corner of your life, then Delta's .Xt faucet will be the perfect fit, but Moen's touchless line would work, too. Ultimately, the option to operate your faucet in one of three ways may be what sways you.
