If you're looking to add a traditional, elegant design touch to your bath space, you may want to consider oil-rubbed bronze bathroom fixtures.

Faucets and other hardware fixtures constructed from oil-rubbed bronze can add a classic, understated, colonial-era charm to any bathroom. This style of bathroom fixture also pairs well with Mediterranean bathroom designs, effectively offsetting the deep, rich colors that they often employ.

Oil-rubbed bronze bathroom fixtures can be purchased as antiques—they're widely available from local, national and online retailers—or you can find oil-rubbed bronze replicas at many home improvement and design stores.

Additionally, if you like the look of oil-rubbed bronze but want to stick to a budget, you may want to consider spray-painting existing fixtures with paint that will emulate the look of oil-rubbed bronze. Cans of this type of paint are available in a variety of styles from paint or home improvement retailers.
