Kitchen faucet options with stainless steel sinks??

Posted by Scarlett001 (My Page) on

My kitchen is overall warmer colours (yellow/apricot walls and a gorgeous warm-coloured ceramic floor) - I am doing some work on the kitchen and the feel that I am aiming for is sort of a rustic Provence design (not very authentic due to the fact my house is newer). My main lighting is an oil-rubbed bronze and my new cabinet handles will be the same. Major applicances are black, some minor appliances are stainless steel.

I have stainless steel sinks that don't really need to be changed and I do have limited finances to redecorate etc. However, I am getting a new kitchen faucet as the original one is very plain, outdated and looks pretty awful.

Because the sinks are stainless steel, am I best to go with a silver kitchen faucet and not oil-rubbed bronze? I've seen some photos online of oil-rubbed bronze faucets with stainless steel sinks but I actually think that they just look mismatched. If one goes more of a silver theme, does it matter if one gets faucets that are chrome vs. brushed nickel/stainless steel to go with the stainless steel sinks? I am leaning towards stainless kitchen faucets - seems they might fit in better with a Provence/rustic theme than an overly shiny chrome faucet. Thoughts anyone??

We are finishing up on our new build kitchen and will have all stainless appliances and sink with ORB faucet. I also have warm colors and somewhat of a rustic theme with warm tile floor and stained knotty alder cabinets. I have seen ORB faucets with stainless sinks in person and in my opinion it looks good as long as it coordinates with the rest of the room such as with lighting and knobs ( also what I'm doing)....and its best if the sink is undermount so the faucet is not touching the sink.
Here's a picture of my sink without the faucet; I will try to post again when faucet and lighting is in. I hope that helps :)

I have ORB hardware on the cabs and ORB pendants, but a SS sink with SS faucet. So if that's what you want, I can assure you that it works just fine. I think an ORB faucet with SS sink could be fine, too, as could a chrome faucet. It's just a matter of taste. Remember that with an undermount sink, the faucet is surrounded by countertop, not the sink material.

Not a great picture, but here's what mine looks like.
