Bathroom Faucet Ideas in Brass, Copper and Gold

Bathroom faucets, fixtures and other accessories serve as the finishing touches in any bathroom, the way jewelry can top off an outfit. In the past, chrome was the go-to for its sleek and shiny appeal. Lately, however, the trend is moving towards more unique metals, including unlacquered brass, gold, and even copper bathroom faucets.

Don’t let the word “brass” scare you, though. Today’s brass faucets are not the bright, yellow versions from the 1980’s. The unlacquered brass faucets that are currently trending lack the shiny top layer, and provides more warmth and character. This new brass/bronze look also takes on a beautiful patina over time and lends itself to the popular vintage faucets look.

Gold faucets are also being utilized in a more sophisticated way than in decades past. And if you’re looking for something a bit more daring, try using copper faucets in the bathroom! Copper faucets can be used in a variety of design styles, from traditional to rustic and it’s sure to make a statement.

Take a look through the following bathroom faucet ideas & photos and consider using these new metals to put an exclamation point on your bathroom.
