If you are planning a home improvement project, you are probably doing some research into various brands and finishes for your cabinetry, faucets and other aspects of your new kitchen or bathroom. No matter what room in your home you are remodeling, mixing finishes and brands is a great way to get a unique look that suits your own personal style. We are a plumber in Rochester, and we are often called on to help with new installations and home improvement projects. Gander Plumbing recently helped install new faucets and other fixtures at a home on 22nd Avenue Southwest, and we wanted to use this as a great example of how mixing brands and finishes can create an elegant look for just about any room in your home.

When you use mixed materials in your kitchen, for example, it can give the room a feeling that is more organic and grounded. A room that looks too “matched” can come off as cold or uninviting. Deliberately mixing materials is a great way to make a room feel more welcoming and more natural.

Plus, mixing materials can be a budget-friendly way to get what you want out of your renovations. For example, if you want a particular finish but your budget doesn’t allow you to use it all over the room, you can use it in one part of the room as an accent. This is a great way to get that special something you want but in a more cost-effective way.

Of course, as a plumber, we always think of things like faucet finishes. There are a ton of options on the market, and because we are often called on for our plumber services for installing these faucets during home renovations, we know plenty about them!

You and your family use your faucets every day, so you want to be sure you pick faucets that will not only look good but will function well also. Think about the finishes you like the best: Brass? Chrome? Nickel? Matte? Shiny? Be sure to get an idea of your preferences and then make up your mind from there. Faucets tend to vary in cost, but there are many different kinds so you are sure to find one that fits your budget as well as your personal style and tastes.
