Bathroom faucet finishes can complete the entire look and feel of the room. Choosing a finish depends on the style, durability, and more. Read on to learn about the differences and advantages of popular finishes.
In a bathroom, copper can look bold, but also gives off a rich vibe. A nice advantage to a copper finish is that it has the ability to heal itself over time. If it becomes scratched, that mark will become darker and blend back in.
- Oil-Rubbed Bronze
Going for a more traditional look? This might be a better choice than chrome or brushed nickel. This option is durable and easy to match with other bathroom fixtures. It might be more expensive, but it won’t show water spots or fingerprints.
- Polished Brass
For a vintage feel, polished brass is a go-to. It’s easy to clean, durable, and easily matches with other fixtures in the bathroom. It’s become more popular in recent years in modern, traditional, and eclectic style bathrooms. The only downside is that it can be more expensive than other options.
- Brushed Nickel
One of the most durable finishes available, this soft, metallic looking option keeps its finish longer than oil-rubbed bronze. It also doesn’t show fingerprints, water spots, or any wear. In addition, it is easy to clean, but blends in rather than standing out like other finishes sometimes do.
Chrome is a fairly standard option when it comes to bathroom faucet finishes due to its affordability. It also has the advantages of being easy to clean and durable. However, chrome fixtures do show water spots and fingerprints more easily than other finishes.
