Polished Nickel Bathroom Faucets
How often have you cleaned the bathroom faucet but just not gotten that shining gleam you were looking for? Where is the sparkle that tells you the faucet is as clean as can be? If shiny is what you desire, you should take a look at the beautiful fixtures available from Kingston Brass.
What is Polished Nickel?
A Polished Nickel finish is nickel plating on brass. Lacquer is then applied to prevent tarnishing with time. Polished nickel looks a lot like chrome but when compared to chrome, you’ll notice that polished nickel has a warm tone as opposed to the almost white sheen of chrome. Also, by adding two levels of lighting in the bathroom, polished nickel can appear to change in color, depending on how the light reflects. This offers a deep, lustrous feel to your bathroom. Polished nickel looks great in a variety of decors including modern, contemporary, traditional, and eclectic.
Once upon a time, nickel was very common to see in bathroom faucets but it became less popular once chrome became available. Today, polished nickel is making a big comeback for its durability, ease of cleaning, warm finish, and vintage appearance. In the home, office, or even in an industrial decor, polished nickel can add a touch of elegance wherever it’s installed.
Chrome Versus Nickel Bathroom Faucets
Polished nickel is not found in the abundant supply that you’ll find chrome fixtures. Polished chrome and nickel are about the same in terms of durability and ease of maintenance. The biggest difference is the appearance. Polished chrome has a whitish appearance while polished nickel is warmer with a subtle hint of yellow in the sheen.
Kingston Brass offers a polished nickel finish in every configuration of bathroom fixture. From centerset to basin tap and bidet faucets, you’ll find the warmth and whimsy hard to resist, and you’ll get that clean and shiny appearance you’ve been missing.
