Bronze Bathroom Faucets

Bronze bathroom faucets are a great option if you're looking for a bathroom fixture with a stylish and unique appearance that will actually get better looking over time.
Faucets that are designated as "oil-rubbed bronze" or "hand-rubbed bronze" have no external finish to protect them from the elements. Unlike other faucet finishes, bronze bathroom faucets will actually age based on their exposure to the elements in the bathroom—everything from the air quality to water splashes to the natural oils on users' hands will contribute to an evolving color patina for the faucet. In general, these faucets darken with time, but they may also develop subtle patterns of staining or other natural effects that many homeowners find quite attractive.
Another advantage of bronze bathroom faucets is their durability. Solid bronze construction should last quite a long time, despite the superficial aging of the surface.
In terms of style, bronze bathroom faucets are available in a range of designs, from traditional to antique and vintage. Bronze was a common material during the colonial era, so these fixtures tend to pair well with colonial and other traditional bathroom designs.
