Consider the space as a whole Before starting any design project, it’s best to have a game plan. Consider whether you’ll be trying to combine your new fixtures with ones you already own or if you’re going for a full remodel. In either scenario, it may be a good idea to find some design inspiration to work with.
True all-brass fixtures are rare because they tend to be expensive, but for those willing to make the investment, it is a material that stands the test of time. They have a smooth and dense makeup that leaves them far less likely to leak or corrode than other materials. However, you may want to do some research before committing to a model. In the past, lead was used in the production of brass faucets and unfortunately leaked into the water supply over time. Though legislation has been passed to regulate the amount used, it is possible for lead to be present in these fixtures.
A note for those who have decided to mix and match a variety of materials: The experts at Delta Faucets recommend coordinating styles by choosing similar finishes on all of your fixtures. For example, you could focus on choosing all polished or all brushed pieces to create a cohesive look.
