Homes these days look a lot different from how they did 20 or 30 years ago. Once a kitchen faucet was nothing more than a simple, practical device, but now manufacturers have designed them to be attractive elements in a kitchen’s décor. Buyers now have plenty of options. There are many different faucets out there, from simple two-handled fixtures to one-handled and even bar, bridge and touchless faucets.
Manufacturers have presented homeowners with a whole range of options when it comes to faucets. One of the most sought-after materials is bronze, and I really think you should give it some consideration. If you’re looking for ambiance, you can’t go wrong with a bronze finish. The color and sheen will add warmth and life to your kitchen décor. But bronze is not just a pretty color; it’s also got some serious practical benefits to offer, too.
A bronze faucet will have a longer life span than most others. Of course, this isn’t true if the faucet is simply plated with a thin layer of bronze. Look for a faucet that is constructed of brass rather than a stainless steel faucet that has been coated with a thin layer of bronze. There’s no way to know how thick that bronze actually is until you wait several months and it starts to deteriorate.
With bronze you’ll find plenty of variety. Whether you choose a one or two-handled faucet, you’ll have plenty of models to choose from. Designs range from vintage to contemporary – in fact, bronze allows you to combine an element of both in the same faucet.
A Touch of Class
Typically, bronze kitchen faucets look high-end and will add a touch of luxury to your décor. It’s not easy to say what exactly gives bronze this expensive look, but it’s probably a combination of the color and the finish, as well as the design. The hardest part is making a decision – you may wish you could buy them all! Just keep your kitchen décor in mind while you shop around, and keep asking yourself which one would fit in the best.
The only downside to bronze is that it tends to cost more than other materials. But when you take into account the appearance and the quality, the extra money is worth it.
