Materials and Finishes
Common Materials & Finishes
Chrome, nickel, brushed nickel, polished brass, oil-rubbed bronze, white, black and stainless steel are some of the standard finishes and colors. Keep in mind that finishes from different manufacturers may not be exactly the same. It is a good idea if you are planning to buy a faucet to purchase any accessories such as a hand spray or soap dispenser from the same collection to ensure a good match.
There are three commonly used materials. stainless steel, brass, and the classic plastic. You will not notice a major difference in weight when it comes to stainless steel and brass, however, you will notice the price difference. As stainless steel is a more expensive raw material it cost on average about $75-$150 then its competitor brass. Plastic is lest expensive out of all three, shockingly!! There really is no big difference when it comes to the quality between the three, however brass faucets on average last longer.
