Built-in soap dispensers are almost always positioned to the right of the faucet assembly unless the main users of the sink in question are left-handed.
One may also ask, are automatic soap dispensers worth it?
Automatic soap dispensers are worth it because they provide a convenient and affordable no-touch solution to washing your hands. They can be easily refilled, making them more economical and environmentally friendly. Automatic soap dispensers can also complement your bathroom design.

How does a soap dispenser work?
The typical distance between a kitchen faucet and a sink-mounted soap dispenser is 8 inches on center — measured from the center of the hole for the faucet to the center of the hole for the dispenser. In a bathroom, the common distance between the faucet and sink-mounted soap dispenser is 4 inches on center.
However, some general rules for a wall-mount faucet do apply. It should have a long enough tap to reach over the sink — ideally with the spout above the center of the bowl — and the tap should have a minimum of 1-inch clearance above the sink rim.
B: RECOMMEND PLACING SOAP DISPENSER W/ BOTTOM AT 3′-3” (39”) ABOVE FLOOR. CODE REQUIRES THAT THEY BE PLACED WITH OPERABLE PARTS AT A 40” MAXIMUM HEIGHT.
If you’ve been thinking about buying a countertop soap dispenser or replacing an old one, the time is definitely now. These days, a soap dispenser is a must-have for any kitchen. We’re washing, cleaning and sanitizing now more than ever so having access to soap is a necessity to keep everything sanitary.
The Faucet Is Usually Centered Behind the Sink
The most common placement for the faucet is directly behind the sink, centered midway between the sides. The distance between the faucet holes and the edge of the sink depends on the faucet style and should be such that the spout completely clears the edge of the sink.
Generally you should have a soap dispenser next to each sink to reduce or eliminate soap or water spills. Mounting one dispenser between two adjacent sinks is acceptable, but one dispenser per sink or user is the best ratio.
