Q: I like to have fun with decorating. We’re planning a new vanity top and faucet and I want a soap dispenser that is an exact match to my new faucet. Can you please give me some information on these custom-type soap dispensers?
A: The type of soap/lotion dispenser you’re asking about can be referred to as “suite”-type because it is usually part of a faucet collection. Basically, it means the company making the faucet may have a line of design accessories matching that faucet.
If you look around, you may even find faucets with a few different types of matching dispensers:
▪ Traditional in-sink. This type mounts in an extra sink hole, and the reservoir is under the sink.
▪ Countertop. It easily sits on the counter, but it’s a dead ringer to match the faucet and finish.
▪ Wall-mounted. It installs up on the wall and out of the way.
So, since you like decorating fun, you’ll have plenty of soap dispenser options to match your bubbly personality.
