There are lots of common metal hardware and fixture finishes in bathrooms. Of course, they are all available in different styles as well, such as: brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and patina-ted iron. The juxtaposition of the two metals can be subtle or you can make it a focal point. The best way to see how each of these can be mixed well is to see it!
Finishes include: copper, brass, nickel, bronze, chrome, stainless steel, iron, and gold.
