Goldtone everywhere in the bathroom -help!
I have to replace the gold-tone fixtures from a double sink -- they don't work (*see below) and are ugly. I would prefer to go with brushed nickel. However, the previous owners who remodeled this bath room in the 90's(?)were consistent with the gold tone throughout the bathroom. It is on the tub spigot, the hinges + trim + shower head for the shower stall, the toilet flusher, the door knob, and the vanity cabinet door pulls.
What would you do in this situation? Stick with the program and replace the existing gold-tone faucets with new gold tone faucets so things still match? (yech, I'm not a fan of this finish.) Or, replace the sink faucets with a finish and style that I like, but then that finish doesn't match anything else in the bathroom?
Other than the gold tone, I like everything about the bathroom (floors, vanity, wall color, etc.) But man, that gold!
*This is so weird, but to turn on the Hot water faucet, you need to turn it clockwise, and counter-clockwise to turn it off. To turn on the Cold water faucet, you do the opposite: turn it counter-clockwise for on, and clockwise to turn it off. Was this some 90's thing? It drives me crazy. The plumber says that some part has rusted shut and he cannot fix it without breaking it, so I need to buy a new faucet to get the consistent righty-tighty, lefty-loosey for both hot and cold. AND, one of the faucets drips, so I just shut off the water supply to that one. So this definitely needs to be addressed. Fortunately the other bathroom is normal.
