  • What You Should Know About Faucet Spouts Before Purchasing

    What You Should Know About Faucet Spouts Before Purchasing

    When choosing a faucet for your bathroom, the design of the spout is a crucial consideration since it's the most visible part. Avoid the disappointment of a faucet that doesn't fit your sink by carefully considering the spout measurements. Think about how you use your sink, such as washing hair or having children using it, as these factors may guide your selection. For small bathroom or single bowl kitchen sinks, a 4 to 8-inch spout reach is usually sufficient, reaching at least the middle of the bowl and centered over the drain opening. Consider the total height and the distance from the wall as well. At Kingston Brass, you can find the perfect faucet with all the relevant spout dimensions listed for easy visualization and complete your remodeling project with our wide range of sinks.

    Oil-Rubbed Bronze: What you need to Know About This Living Finish

    If you're renovating your kitchen or bathroom, consider incorporating oil-rubbed bronze fixtures for a touch of warmth and timeless elegance. This brownish-black finish, resembling aged bronze, is achieved through chemical treatments, resulting in a slightly slick surface that lends the finish its name.

It also complements Prairie and traditional Southwestern architecture. The deep hues and shiny surface of oil-rubbed bronze pair beautifully with lush gold, sage green, or terra cotta tones, as well as light-colored marble and rich woods. Additionally, it can serve as a striking contrast to cool neutrals and other metal finishes when you want to make a bold statement.
