The Best Finishes For Wall-Mount Bathroom Faucets
The finish for any bathroom faucet can make or break the design of any bathroom. Too much in a small bathroom is overwhelming and too little in a large bathroom leaves you feeling underwhelmed. This is especially true for wall-mount bathroom faucets that stand in their own space.
What is a Wall-Mount Faucet?
Wall-mounted faucets are more difficult to install since holes have to be precisely positioned and created in the wall. The results are eye-catching and add a touch of flair that is both modern and utilitarian at once. It’s definitely worth the effort.
What Finishes Are Available for a Wall-Mount Faucet?
Like other faucet styles, wall-mount faucets are available in a variety of finishes. Choosing the one that matches the decor of your bath while also meeting everyday needs is important. To narrow your search, here are five of the most popular finishes.
Polished Brass: This finish provides a vintage look for your bathroom but fits in well in any decor. It’s easy to clean, durable, and easier to match with other accessories and fixtures. This finish is slightly more expensive compared to others. Brass faucets are also available in matte black and antique finishes.
Oil-Rubbed Bronze: This finish offers a darker color that looks luxurious and doesn’t show fingerprints and water spots. Oil-rubbed bronze mixes well and adds another layer of depth to the decor. It’s more expensive than chrome or brushed nickel, but maybe worth it if you’re looking for unique aesthetics.
Copper: This finish definitely will be the focal point of any bathroom as it adds a rich feel that is hard to miss. Copper does require more maintenance than oil-rubbed bronze and chrome and can be difficult to match with other finishes, but you may decide it’s worth the effort for the stunning result.
Polished Nickel: This is a smooth and shiny finish. It’s slightly darker than chrome and can appear to change color using different lighting. It’s durable, easy to clean, and pairs nicely with brushed nickel.
Chrome: This is the most popular finish because of its durability, affordability, and easy maintenance. The finish is shinier than stainless steel, which makes it an eye-catching design choice. It requires more cleaning to ensure the ultimate shine. Water spots show up more noticeably on this finish. Despite its requiring some maintenance, it is still a popular choice due to its spectacular style.
Brushed Nickel: This finish is easy to maintain. It holds up against abrasion well and doesn’t show water spots as quickly as chrome. Not only is brushed nickel a durable choice, but it is also a popular option for other kinds of faucets due to its notable style.
And the Winner Is…
Whichever finish works best with the decor and function of your bathroom, any wall-mount faucet from Kingston Brass will be an addition you’ll enjoy for years to come.
