Polished Nickel hardware - FAUCET help!

MansarkritomJanuary 20, 2014

Need some help in deciding kitchen faucet finish. Going with a modern traditional kitchen: white beaded inset cabinets, walnut island, marble honed counters. 48" stainless hood with a 2 - 3" polished bands.

I've selected polished nickel bin hardware and latches for the cabinets. I originally planned a polished nickel Waterstone faucet, but am worried about upkeep on a polished nickel faucet and whether it's too much bling for the kitchen.

Polished hardware has been very popular but will it look dated in a few years? Thanks for your help!

Polished will not look dated. And for me, at least, no kitchen can have too much faucet bling.

Nickel has only a shade more upkeep than chrome. It needs to be cleaned with Flitz or another product once a month to six weeks. And as with any faucet, a daily wipedown with microfiber cloth keeps it looking good.
