Carrara Marble - what color hardware?

beepsAugust 25, 2012

Think contemporary house and bathrooms. I'm doing the bathroom countertops in Carrara.

Guest bath I'm doing chrome hardware because the faucet I want only comes in chrome.

For the master bath, where I'll also have a Carrara shower, with the flooring other than the shower floor being a gray tile, what color hardware would be best? Or, does it not really matter? I'm generally a BN person, but the faucets I want for the master come in stainless or chrome. (As well as aged pewter and victorian bronze but those aren't what I'm looking for.)

So, WWYD? I am thinking the Carrara is classy enough maybe I should do chrome. Stainless seems more casual. Thoughts?

I like chrome or polished nickel with marble. Not the duller finishes, including stainless.

Thanks writersblock - that's a great point. I'd planned on going stainless in the master but suddenly it started sounding a bit gray or something. Dull might be the word I wanted. I just ran so far away from chrome 10-15 years ago that it feels odd to be going back to it! :)
