bathroom fixtures finishes and quality
I'm redoing the plumbing in my house and decided this was a good time to replace the bathroom fixtures. What are the finishes that stand up over time?
I bought my house about 20 years ago with a new bathroom, but they installed all of these cheap gold plated finishes that very quickly wore off. The cabinet and drawer pulls are disgusting, and the faucets are just ugly. Not a fan of the gold.
So how do I determine a good durable finish vs. a thin veneer when it comes to choosing fixtures? And how do I go about rating the different manufacturers of faucets to understand the quality? The prices seems to vary dramatically and I'm not understanding what to look for.
