Faucet color choice, English Bronze?

Moon-flowerApril 8, 2013

Hi everyone,

I am a long time lurker, I have learned so much from you all here.

We are in the middle of a multi room renovation on our new house and I am about to order my sink and faucet for the kitchen.

I am going to order the Rohl Shaw 30 inch farmouse sink in white. I am also going to order a Perrin and Rowe Bridge faucet. Here is my dilemma, order the faucet in brushed nickel to "go" with my stainless appliances or not to match the stainless appliances and go with English Bronze, which I love.

Cabinets, white. Floor, dark gray stained Saltillo arabesque shaped tiles, countertops, gray soapstone (no green) Appliances: stainless steel, sub zero "48 fridge and viking gas range. Pulls will be a natural rock/mineral in a light color.

Thank you!
I will post pics of before and after when I am done since.

Your faucet doesnt need to match the stainless steel appliances. So you can go for the English Bronze if that is what you love. What are you doing for lighting? Is there an opportunity there to bring in some more bronze, not that you have to but it might be nice? I would resist bringing a third metal finish into the kitchen- so don't do copper lights!

I wish I had seen that English Bronze before we installed our faucet - it is beautiful!

Get the one you love! A mix of metals looks great.

Go for the English Bronze. You will love it each time you see, and use it. There was a link in another post regarding a mix of metals in the kitchen and it pointed out how many different metal finishes used in a kitchen looks lovely!
