Find the finishes you love.
I spent countless hours and sleepless nights trying to determine what finishes I wanted for my home. I love them all. I know I will be safe if I were to go with all nickel. It wasn’t making me excited since I already used nickel in the previous houses. So I needed to start thinking out of the box.
After seeing a few ideas I decided to mix finishes to create a visual interest both classic and intriguing. I think you can express your personal taste through different finishes. Heres how to get the look that’s right.
What to pick for the finishes.
The key to remember when mixing finishes is not to go overboard. I think mixing 2 to 3 finishes is good. I kept the faucets and knobs the same finish as in brushed nickel. Everything else I choose a different finish.
The bathroom sink faucets, I used widespread faucet such as in the Riobel Brushed Nickel Bathroom Faucet.
Too much gold for me is too overbearing. I wanted to add it. I chose the lights fixture in satin brass to give me that gold I wanted. To give it even more contrast I picked an antique bronze finish for the mirrors.
Putting it all together.
Once I added the contrasting colors of satin brass and antique bronze, its time to put everything together. I was able to add a little glam to a simple bathroom by adding a sparkling chandelier. Next will be adding a linen shade or plantation shutters.
Decorating takes time for a new home. I don’t like rushing because when you do, I think you tend to choose to fast and later on you may regret it.
The bathtub faucet I picked was California Faucets Balboa Deck Mounted Tub Filler in brushed nickel. I am obsessed in taking baths, so when I choose my bathtub the Barclay 61 Cast Iron Tub Kit White/Polished Chrome, it had to be comfortable. I was thrilled with my selection.
For the best rain shower you can imagine, I was extremely happy with the Moen Waterhill Eco-Performance Shower Head in brushed nickel.
