Choosing The Best Plumbing Fittings

Ever been overwhelmed by choices when picking out plumbing fittings?

There are a lot of elegant, modern plumbing fixtures on the market, but do you know the differences between them? Brushed or polished metals? Bronze or copper? Light or dark coloured fittings?

Here is your quick guide to choosing the best plumbing fixtures for your home:

Copper

Pros: Natural anti-bacterial properties, easy to find.

Cons: High maintenance, not as durable as other metals.

How to use it: Copper has a very steampunk feel to it. However it works well in a farmhouse style bathroom. Pairing it with simple-looking materials such as marble gives a bathroom a very decadent feel.

Satin Bronze

Pros: Flexible style, durable, easy to clean, water spots won’t show.

Cons: Hard to find and expensive.

How to use it: Satin bronze is a flexible style of fixture and works well in traditional and Mediterranean bathrooms.

Chrome

Pros: Durable, easy to clean and readily available.

Cons: Shows up fingerprints and water spots.

How to use it: This works great in almost every style of bathroom; modern, contemporary, traditional and eclectic.

Polished Nickel

Pros: Cheap, durable, easy to clean and readily available.

Cons: Expensive.

How to use it: This works great in almost every style of bathroom; modern, contemporary, traditional and eclectic.

Polished Brass

Pros: Durable, easy to clean and readily available.

Cons: Relatively expensive.

How to use it: Polished Brass is great for giving any bathroom a vintage look. However it does make a fantastic feature in any bathroom, whether it be modern, traditional or eclectic.

Satin Brass

Pros: Durable, doesn’t show water splashes or fingerprints.

Cons: Difficult to find and expensive.

How to use it: The brushed brass look works very well in traditional and modern bathrooms. It has a beautiful colour that goes well in bathrooms with both black and white detailing.
