Copper has a dark, rich natural finish that comes from within. Most homeowners want to match the finish on their copper sinks with the faucets and accessories. Faucets are plated in many different colors. Premier Copper Products recommends choosing accessories in a finish called Oil Rubbed Bronze, also known as ORB. Most accessories in ORB are plated in a dark brown color with brush marks that sometimes show copper colored highlights and streaks. This finish looks stunning with any of our copper products.
We are often asked about a finish called Antique Copper, also know as AC. In our option Antique Copper looks synthetic and is often more of a light color. For this reason we recommend avoiding antique copper finished faucets and accessories.
Surprisingly, choosing a brushed nickel or chrome finished faucet looks quite good. Though it might seem to contrast, in reality those colors often complement the appliance colors and pull the whole space together.
It is always best to ask your sink supplier to help you when choosing a faucet.
