Shoppers who call eFaucets customer service are often in the market for new fixtures more than a decade after their last faucet purchase or remodel, and they want to know about the most popular finishes available.
Representatives at eFaucets have done their homework, noting that oil-rubbed bronze and brushed brass – warm metal finishes – are more popular in 2015 than classic go-to’s like polished chrome or brushed nickel.
“We get a lot of calls asking about what’s on trend,” team leader Mike Jovanovic said. “There are still some callers who want a shiny finish, but the number of shoppers is increasing who order the oil-rubbed bronze and the newer brushed brass.”
Customers are also willing to mix metal finishes in their kitchens and bathrooms; choosing an oil-rubbed bronze faucet and stainless steel light fixtures, for example.
“Another creative idea that adds plenty of visual interest: incorporate both warm and cool reflective metals into the same space — perhaps combining accents of brass or copper plus chrome,” they said in a recent post about kitchen design trends in 2015.
Faucet manufacturers are paying attention; customers can find polished, matte, and brushed metal finishes in almost every collection available.
