Polished nickel and polished brass are two distinct finishes with tons of potential in a kitchen and bath design. The main difference between the coloration of the two is that nickel has a silver tone to it whereas polished brass, of course, has a brass or gold finish. They are both charming finishes, it ultimately comes down to your preference and also the other colors in your space.
Polished nickel has a similar style to polished chrome with a warmer tint to it but not as warm as brass. It is a more subtle but bright finish for a less intense fixture. This finish can be a bit easier to clean with a simple wipe with a damp cloth. For a busy home with a lot of family and friend traffic, polished nickel is bright enough to make a statement but subtle enough to blend with the design. Kingston offers polished nickel in an assortment of fixtures. Fixtures such as kitchen and bath faucets, tub faucets, side sprayers. When choosing polished nickel for your home, it can be paired in moderation with other finishes such as polished brass, oil rubbed bronze and polished chrome because of the slight warmness of the nickel.
Designing or updating a bathroom with brass finish faucets and accessories will certainly make a statement. Depending on the design and theme of your bathroom, either polished, brushed or antique will best align. They are all great shades of brass but they do have distinct colors. Polished brass is more reflective and offers a bright, elegant look where as brushed is a more mellow version of polished. Brushed has the beautiful color of brass with a textured design. Antique brass is certainly how it sounds, it has a vintage design and a darker hue. Brass in the bathroom looks great and adds a luxurious feel.
