Chrome or Brushed Nickel - Which finish holds up the best?
I'm planning for the remodel of two full baths, so will be buying lots of fixtures. Silver's a must for me, but I keep wavering between shiny chrome and brushed nickel. I'd just about settled on brushed nickel, but then noticed that some mfg. Lifetime warranties don't apply for any of their non-chrome finishes - Kohler's one example.
So, that concerns me that brushed nickel may not hold up long term as well as chrome. Any opinions on how brushed nickel holds up at, say, the 10 year mark? We plan to retire in this house, so plan to buy quality materials that will hold up for more than a few years. Any opinions/experiences would be greatly appreciated.
