A question about faucet finishes - stainless v. satin nickel?
So I'm still looking for a main sink faucet for our reno, having given up my Waterstone fantasies. My Waterstone knock-off came from Overstock, and it looks wonderful. Very solid. The finish is "satin nickel." So in looking at main faucets to match it, I noticed a lot of what I liked was just called "stainless." I have a stainless one now, in fact.
So today I saw a Blanco I liked. The color was given as
stainless. But in parentheses, it said (SATIN NICKEL).
Hmmm . . . .
So, I got my bargain Overstock faucet out and compared it to my existing main faucet. The finishes are nearly identical. Soft gray with a faint brown-gold cast. So is "satin nickel" just a fancy word for stainless steel? Duh!
