Brass Bathroom Faucets
Brass bathroom faucets can be a great option for anyone interested in a trend-resistant, long-lasting bathroom fixture.
One of the greatest advantages of brass faucets is their durability. In general, they are more resistant to corrosion than any other type of faucet material—especially if they're installed in homes where hard water is a concern.
An Eco-Friendly Faucet
TOTO has created a line of single-handle high-efficiency faucets that allow you to wash your hands effectively while still saving water. The contemporary Upton faucets are available in a standard model, which is perfect for undermount and self-rimming sinks, and a tall model, ideal for vessel sinks.
Texture Adds Interest
Today's faucets come in a wide range of colors, textures and styles. This single-handle fastened Delta faucet is a part of their Addison line, which offers a rich brushed copper finish. Whether used for a pop of color and interest in a minimalist bath or to blend with a more earthy, deep color palette, brushed copper creates a look all its own.
Kohler's wall-mounted Karbon line of faucets is just as useful in the bath as in the kitchen. The Karbon bath faucets allow users to position the spout exactly where they want it and then have both hands free for other tasks. This unique hands-free feature, along with the industrial-looking design, sets the Karbon collection apart.
Your first task if you're considering brass bathroom faucets is to distinguish between solid brass construction—the strongest and longest lasting—and construction that features brass plating. The first way to check is to pick the entire fitting up—it should be heavier than other units that don't feature a solid brass body. Additionally, the packaging should read "all brass body", as opposed to "ZMACK" for brass or other metal-plated bodies.
The durability and versatility of brass bathroom faucets does mean that you'll likely pay more for them than for lesser metals or other materials. In general, brass faucet fixtures start at around $150 and go up from there. But if you're determined to install a bathroom faucet that will last through the years, solid brass is a great option.
