Chrome or brushed nickel, finger prints, and water spots?
I'm about to undertake a bathroom remodel and have been looking at faucets. One of the things that I hate about my current faucet (20 years old and was cheap to begin with) is that it doesn't seem to look clean for long. Waterspots and fingerprints seem to always be present. We have hard water.
I was thinking of using brushed nickel, but notice that it tends to be more expensive. If I go with brushed nickel, does the other hardware (e.g. towel bars) need to match. Alternatively, does the better quality chrome hold up better? Are there any other options I should consider.
Thanks so much!
