Whether you’re remodeling your entire bathroom or are just looking to update your accessories, making sure you’ve chosen the right finish is important. You want a finish that matches your bathroom and your preferences. From knowing how much maintenance is needed to which styles work best with each finish, there are a few things you’ll want to consider before making your decision. Here’s a crash course on different bathroom finishes.
With a chrome finish, versatility is everything. In fact, you can match this finish with practically any style. It’s easy to clean, maintenance is simple, and finding coordinating accessories is a breeze. Consider chrome items like squeegees and vanity mirrors.
If you’re looking for a smooth, soft look, try satin nickel. With it, you won’t have to worry about water spots, fingerprints or other wear showing through, making maintenance simple. There are plenty of bathroom accessories you can find in satin nickel. Not only can you find faucets, satin nickel is available in soap dispensers and toilet caddies.
This finish is great when you want to add a more traditional feel to your bathroom. It’s easy to clean and won’t show fingerprints or water spots. Plus, if you can’t quite find the accessories you want in oil-rubbed bronze, you can take a brass darkening solution to your old brass accessories (like light switches and door handles) to create a matching set.
No matter which finish you choose, remember to coordinate all your fixtures and accessories with the same finish. That way, you’ll have a cohesive room that offers the full benefit of the style you choose.
