Where to buy good quality light fixtures? Chrome. (past mistake)
A few years ago, I replaced a broken, rusty bathroom light fixture with one I purchased at a certain "big box" hardware store. The new light had a chrome finish which began to rust within three weeks of installation. (This is not an exaggeration.) I'm sad to say that I was too lazy to return the defective light fixture and it has remained in place for three years and has attained a rustic rusty appearance. On a positive note, I can say that the light it supplies has been satisfactory.
I'm feeling a sudden urge to put a proper light fixture in my bathroom, but since the last two were rusty messes, I wonder where I should go to find a good quality chrome fixture. I don't want to make the same mistake this time.
Can anyone give me advice? Please?
The other chrome surfaces in my bathroom are in perfect condition. I don't understand why light fixtures are such an issue. Is it the heat?
