A bathroom remodel involves making many choices.  One very important decision is choosing what type of finish you want for your fixtures. While polished chrome is the most popular finish, and its surface is durable and scratch resistant, brushed or polished brass fixtures provide a feel and style you may not want to overlook. The golden tone offers a look of luxury, yet the high-end appearance doesn’t have to come at a high price. In fact, brass fixtures can be priced quite reasonably. While they are typically more expensive than polished chrome, this may be a place you might prefer to shift some of your bath budget.


Brass Mixes Well with Other Materials

One of the challenges with brass fixtures is that the selection may be limited. Since they are just now making a resurgence, many of the manufacturers have not created the endless styles and options that exist with a finish like polished chrome. In addition, different manufacturers may have different brasses. For example, a shower door company’s brass hardware may not match the faucet manufacturer’s brass. In some cases, this is fine but in others, we may want to consider mixing finishes. There are many ways to design a bathroom mixing metals and finishes. For example, you can mix brass bathroom fixtures, wood, and black accents, which can be present in the hardware, toilet paper holders, frames, or flooring tiles you choose.

Brass is also often combined with matte black and nickel finishes for an eclectic look and feel. Sometimes people hit a wall when trying to envision what each of these fixtures will look like together.  That’s where our One Week Bath Designers are essential; providing you a sample of each material and giving you a chance to see it in your own bathroom. Take the time to work with one of our Specialists who will help you through these finish decisions and your bathroom will remain stylish for many years to come.
