Are you looking to replace your old brass kitchen faucet with a more contemporary or decorative one? If yes, there are a number of features you need to consider before buying a new one. Some faucets are only compatible with other faucets in your house. For example, a brushed nickel finish will look weird at a polished chrome faucet.
Therefore, if you're looking to give your kitchen a major makeover, it's imperative to note that different brands utilize different color finishes, which means be certain to purchase all the faucets and accessories from the same brand. Additionally, the style of faucets and taps you select will also determine the type of brass finish you'll choose. For example, antique brass taps often require some form of an enamel coating on them in order to be rust-proof and durable. If you don't have the time to apply this on your own, there are brass finishing kits available for this purpose. The downside of using a brass finishing kit is that the finish itself can degrade over time and require another coat to restore the original luster.
Polished brass Kitchen faucets are available in polished as well as brushed finishes. Satin brass, on the other hand, is satin nickel or polished brass that has been coated with zinc. Satin nickel is shiny while polished brass has a matte finish. Brass, polished as well as satin, is very durable and shiny. Be advised, though, that the satin finish on satin will scratch easily.
