Chrome is BACK!! Let’s talk about Popular Finishes

I’ve been saying this for a while now: “Chrome never goes out of style”. Well, now I have proof. According to the April 2012 of The Retail Observer, chrome has been specified in 52% of kitchens, up 18% from last year, and in 65% of bathrooms, up 19% from last year. Chrome suits a traditional period bath as much as it does a sleek modern one.

For those traditional baths, polished nickel is a lustrous choice with a hint of warmth that exudes elegance. This finish has increased 4-7% over the last year. It appears that this increase is at the expense the brushed finishes. (Brushed nickel has decreased 16-20% in the past year!!)

FYI, bronze finishes decreased from 49%-to 41% last year. Stainless rose 4% in kitchens over the last year.

We have all of these finishes on display in the store so COME ON IN!

This is a photo of a To-Die-For Zucchetti faucet in polished nickel. Elegance and Individuality.
