replace with matching water faucet/soap dispenser now?
Ugh... more money.
So I bought my beloved Kraus chrome faucet (I love this faucet!!)
We currently have a stainless steel filtered water dispenser (ugly/plain/not high quality) and a satiin (almost pewter) nice soap dispenser. They both work fine, do their jobs Both are less than 5 years old.
DH is set on replacing them when/if they die/malfunction.
But they do NOT go with my new faucet.
What would you do: replace them now so they match or just in the same family metal tone, or wait for them to die?
All 3 would sit in front of my 5 down-to-counter windows. Yes, I have my 4 beautiful chrome/crystal sconces in between the 5 windows (the more reason to not have the clashing metals) so no one would really look at the water faucet and soap dispenser.
I know they're small purchases (in comparison to my radiant floor heating), but they just add to the mountain of outgoing funds.
I think it comes down to what kind of person are you, when making such a trivial decision. My gf is ready to go out to just buy them for me; that's how annoyed she'd be at the mismatched metals.
ps. no, no final pictures yet.
passed electrical, plumbing, and building inspection (was really worried about potentially needing make-up air for 1100CFM hood).
Still have moldings to paint and familyroom tile grouts to seal.
Gee: contractor barely left and I bought him back for a quote for the masterbedroom/2nd floor addition.
DH almost killed me when I mentioned that MAYBE we should have done the addition first, and then update the kitchen in 5 years since our 2 young kids need a playroom (that they can keep messy) now (having lived through 6months of renovation madness).
