What is the best material for faucet construction? Faucets are an essential part of any household, and you want to make sure that you get the best quality and design. Commercial and multi-family residential buildings also face significant challenges when it comes to design and construction. Owners, engineers, architects, contractors, and designers each emphasize different aspects of what’s important when choosing a faucet – some focusing more on aesthetics, others quality, and all agree long-term durability is paramount. What if there was a solution that would deliver on all those needs. There is!

Bathroom fixtures have used brass construction for centuries as one of the industry’s leading standard materials for various reasons, and it’s easy to see why. Cast Brass is known for being versatile, durable, lead-free, and lasts through time and heavy use!

Keep in mind when choosing brass fixtures that those with solid brass construction are much higher quality than fixtures with brass plating or a brass finish. You can typically differentiate between the two because solid brass is a lot heavier. If you’re debating whether to use brass fixtures in your newly upgraded bathroom, take a look at these benefits the material offers:

Durability

Known for being heavy-duty and durable, fixtures made from cast brass will last decades and can stand up to the high use wear and tear that kitchen and bathroom faucets see day in and day out. Brass fixtures generally stand up to hot water use and other corrosive environmental factors better than many other materials. Its dependability and solid construction make it an easy choice when investing in a faucet that will last for years. Many times, antique brass bathroom faucets are found in such excellent condition that designers choose them as the centerpiece of a vintage design.

Added Value 

Because of the solid brass construction, the durability of a cast brass faucet compared with faucets made from cheap steel, zinc, or other mixed materials will add instant value to your home or multi-family project. Brass faucets, accessories, and other bathroom parts are known to last for years – much longer in fact than many other materials used, giving you a greater return on your investment.

Versatility

Solid cast brass is often used in bathrooms and is found in several different finishes, making them perfect for any bathroom style. Take a look at some of the most common finishes available:

  • Chrome: This shiny silver finish is one of the most common faucet finishes. Chrome faucets can look modern and minimalistic or impart a more traditional feel to your space, depending on the style faucet you choose.
  • Bronze: Bronze and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures bring warmth to your design. Oil-rubbed bronze bathroom faucets are perfect for a vintage-style clawfoot tub, a historically styled sink, even a sleek modern design.
  • Rough brass: Don’t let the name fool you. Rough brass faucets can be a perfect choice for a laundry room or mudroom sink – and they will last for years!
  • Brass: While polished and antique brass finishes don’t get used as often as chrome, they can create a visually stunning impact both in vintage and modern kitchens and bathrooms alike.
  • Nickel: Both polished nickel and brushed nickel finishes are a slightly warmer tone than chrome. Nickel can often be more expensive than other finishes, but it’s also durable, elegant, and excellent for a transitional bathroom design.
  • Matte Black: Bring a bold statement color to your kitchen and bath with Matte Black. From classic elegance to unique and contemporary – the possibilities are endless with this stunning and easy care finish.
  • Brushed Gold: Elevate your style with brushed gold – whether you are going for traditional sophistication or industrial chic, brushed gold has become the trend that is here to stay.

Now that you know some of the many benefits of solid brass in faucet fixtures, you can make informed choices to get it all – quality, aesthetics, and long-term durability.
