Each year brings a new set of trends to embrace during the next round of bathroom remodels. While some trends only last a few years, brass and gold finishes for bathroom faucets have been popular for a few years already. Between their luxurious looks and warm tones, these finishes are ideal for guest and master baths alike. These tricks make the most of these finishes in any new bathroom or remodeling project.
Mix with Matte
If the warm tones of brass or gold are too much on their own for all the fixtures in the bathroom, they both blend well with matte black and chrome finishes. Matte finishes blend with these warm colors better than polished varieties because there’s less contrast between the two looks. Matte black and gold finishes, in particular, are trendy right now because of the interplay of warmth between both colors. Try a matte black bridge faucet along with gold finishes for the tub filler and other features.
Try a Modern Twist
It’s a common misconception that all brass and gold finish bathroom faucets are traditional in style. There are plenty of modern faucet styles that pair well with these warm tones to keep the bathroom as contemporary as desired. The style of the faucet often matters more than the specific finish to the final look. Streamlined and simplified faucets remain a modern style regardless of the warm finish chosen to complete them.
Brushed or Polished?
Brushed gold and brass finishes are ideal for rooms that need a little bit more of a personal touch. These finishes feature unique marks on the surface from the brushed effect, resulting in a more artistic and handmade look. For a perfectly even frosted finish, satin gold and brass are ideal. Polished finishes tend to have a classic or vintage look, so they’re ideal for wall mount faucets and widespread designs. Antiqued and weathered brass offer the most traditional style with a handmade elegance.
Perfect Pairs for Warm Tones
Warm tones in the bathroom aren’t just trendy, they’re also easy to work with. Some of the best complimentary materials for these finishes include:
- Natural wood surfaces in both cool and warm tones
- Marble and granite, especially with dark elements to contrast against the warm finishes
- Black and white color schemes that let the gold or brass shine.
