There are so many options to choose from when you are renovating a kitchen or bathroom.  The hardware you choose can be either a statement piece with functionality or just a functional piece.  It’s all up to the preferences of the homeowner and the style that they want.

You can get lost in the finish and color choices of all hardware.  Do you want to be trendy, or traditional?  Will my budget afford it? Is it easy to use? Do I want all the bells and whistles?  Just like with most things, you can do top-of-the-line and break your budget, or you can get a quality piece that makes sense.

A new trend is the resurgence of brass, or gold, fixture.  Particularly popular is the Champagne bronze. Where silver and nickel finishes are very popular and go with everything, a splash of color with champagne bronze can give you a touch of color, without being too “brassy”.

The 2016 HGTV Dream Home sported the new finish in the kitchen.  Check out the site and see if it something you want to freshen up the look of your kitchen or bath.
