Mentor Nyla Free , Principal of Nyla Free Designs in Calgary, shares the pros and cons of chrome faucets.
With plumbing fixtures such as faucets among the first selections to be made during a kitchen or bathroom renovation, it’s one you want to feel confident in. Available in a variety of styles, chrome faucets are widely popular and a great choice. Knowing the pros and cons will help make the decision that’s best suited for your space and lifestyle.
Pros of choosing chrome:
- Won’t scratch or corrode
- Tarnish resistant
- Adds sparkle
- Often affordable
- Mixes well with other metals
Cons of choosing chrome:
- Water spots will show
- Must be cleaned regularly
- Popular look
- Overtime chrome plating can wear off
Faucets have gone far beyond function with aesthetics and style high on the list. Chrome is a solid choice with options in everything from traditional to modern, widespread to wall mount and a price to meet every budget.
