Durability and Beauty can go hand-in-hand, literally, when selecting the best faucet and fixture finishes for your bath and kitchen. There are several different metals and looks out there. From brass, copper, nickel, bronze, and chrome to then choosing whether to have a polished or matte finish, the combinations can seem endless. But which one should you choose?
Here’s a quick-glance list of the pros and cons of each:
Easy to clean
Easy to maintain
Shows fingerprints and water spots
Chrome protects only the surface of a faucet

Mixing Metals is a fun way to bring individual style to your space. You CAN choose a polished nickel faucet with black or bronze pendants. You CAN choose a satin nickel fixture / faucet with polished nickel pulls or vice versa. You CAN choose a copper sink with an oil rubbed bronze fixture / faucet. Mix it up and have fun! This space is YOURS.
