How to use brass fixtures.
Adding a brass faucet to your bathroom or kitchen couldn’t be easier!
If you’re planning a remodel soon then you can incorporate brass faucets into the new design and they will be installed during renovation works.
Alternatively, in many instances homeowners are able to swap their existing faucet for a new one!
What to watch for with brass faucets
There are some considerations to take into account when thinking of using brass faucets in your home…
It’s important to be aware that modern brass faucets tarnish over time, particularly the non-finished ones. Many homeowners love the more “lived” look of brass faucets after a number of years, as they age beautifully. However this isn’t for everyone. If you are looking for a perfectly finished faucet that doesn’t tarnish then I would recommend looking at alternatives.
Brass faucets react to fingerprints, water, and even acidic foods. This all contributes to giving it a patina affect that adds character to the piece, but isn’t right for everyone. This gives the faucet a charm that we love at Innovatus Design, but understand that not everyone wants this.
Ways to make brass faucets last in your home
Brass Faucets can last a lifetime if chosen right!
They are great in kitchens to make a statement of the sink or bar sink area, and bring a beautiful elegance to bathrooms. If you love the look of brass hardware in homes then brass faucets should be considered too!
If you plan on changing your existing faucets for new ones, always check with a professional to ensure the new faucet is suitable for the home’s water pressure.
