Hardware Finishes - What's in style?
We are in the midst of a whole house remodel and I had planned to use oil-rubbed bronze hardware primarily (door handles, lighting fixtures, faucets, etc). But, since it has taken us so long to get through the design phase and into the building/finishing phase, I am starting to doubt that decision as I seem to see finishes trending back to chrome.
The only items I've purchased so far are a faucet for our powder room in oil-rubbed bronze (will be paired with a hammered copper sink and antique gold granite) and recently bought faucets for our jack'n'jill bath and guest bath in polished chrome (to be paired with white porcelain undermount sinks and builder grade granite).
Our decorating style leans toward rustic traditional with dark, classic woods and masculine touches.
By the time I'm done, these finish items will be a large part of my budget and I don't want to make a mistake. Where do you see the trend going? It would be a shame to be out of style before I even complete my project!
