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.

Various Styles of Faucet Integration

Classic Faucet With a Twist

Moen has created a new twist on a classic faucet design. Reminiscent of the handles and spouts accompanying vintage claw-foot tubs, this wall-mounted feature is surprisingly updated in its look and feel with a brushed nickel finish.

Regal Appeal

Cifial has designed a fastened faucet that adds texture and color for a more formal powder room. The separate hot and cold handles and the tall spout add a touch of formality and luxury to the space.

Gold Finish Faucet

Kohler gives this modern faucet a formal design by finishing it in glistening gold. The single handle and spout are simple and sleek, creating a subtle utilitarian feel.

Urban Chic

A contemporary wall-mounted faucet by Moen shines bright in a chrome finish. The spout extends over the sink basin while the two separate handles allow for custom hot and cold temperatures.

Timeless Appeal

The perfect bathtub faucet, this fastened chrome-finished accessory offers a large spout with separate handles. The adjacent hand-held shower head is within an arm's reach and can be used in tandem with the spout.

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.

Hands-Free Faucet

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.

Architectural Ambiance

The new Stance collection of faucets by Kohler exudes a modern design with strong, architectural lines. Refined angles and edges with a “joystick” style handle offer a striking design statement for modern living spaces.

Less Is More

The Loure collection of faucets by Kohler makes a major impact with minimal accessorizing. The understated fastened faucet slopes dramatically over the basin, and separate hot and cold handles mimic the faucet's geometric design.

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.
