Brushed nickel vs. oil rubbed bronze
August 10, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I'm interested in thoughts about the two finishes for plumbing fixtures/lighting. It seems like the oil or antique rubbed bronze may be a little trendy or already somewhat dated, but I've noticed not all brands offer the brushed nickel. Thoughts? Also, can the two looks be mixed?

Probably not a good idea to mix finishes in the same room. Brushed nickel is the more timeless and versatile design choice.

Wow Great Place
I have mixed the two, as the lighting tied in to the dark cabinetry better in oil rubbed bronze.

With the right cleaner, both are simple to clean and maintain, but its better not to mix the two. If you wish to have a brushed nickel fixtures but do not want a similar finish, then try going with chrome. The soft metallic look of brushed nickel has stood the test of time.

We offers variety of brushed nickel and Chrome faucets, here is quick link to our faucets:
