Faucets and Finishes: The Best Timeless Looks for Your Home

Selecting a faucet and finish isn’t always easy. Since you’re bound to have your faucet for years to come, it’s important to consider a style and finish that can make a lasting impression.

Some faucet styles and finishes will stand the test of time—and coming up behind them are newer, trendier looks and tones that might well end up in the pantheon of timeless. But the best thing you can do is select a faucet that works for you and your space. Let’s explore the long-beloved faucets and finishes, while getting to know the trends with significant staying power, and how they can influence your home.


To call something timeless is to know it’s been judged over time and proven to be remarkable—impeccable quality with established value. Such is the case with these faucets and finishes.

For easy elegance in the bathroom, the Lahara® and Ara® faucets are great choices. The Lahara faucet’s design has a wavelike energy, making it feel both modern and timeless. The look is graceful, fluid and soothing. The angles and edges on the Ara bath faucet make it feel more geometric, but its streamlined, contemporary look shines in any bathroom.

Cassidy™ and Essa® kitchen faucets are welcome additions in any kitchen. The Cassidy faucet is a softer, traditional-style faucet that fits perfectly in a farmhouse setting. The Essa faucet is transitional style at its best, its shape at ease in almost any décor.


When it comes to faucet finishes, look to Arctic® Stainless or Polished Nickel. Arctic Stainless finish is the classic’s classic, tried and true in presentation and tone. Arctic Stainless differs from Stainless in that it's glossy with a silver finish and an icy cast, but either would look good in any kitchen. The Polished Nickel finish has a traditional energy, making it feel like it was always meant to be in your kitchen or bath. It’s bold in its simplicity, which is always a bonus.


To be a trend, there must be a progression, where the item in question becomes in fashion. In the case of these faucets and finishes, their fresh styles and tones bring a new ideal to what kitchen and bathroom design could be.

If you look on social media, it seems everyone has a Trinsic faucet in their bathroom. Why? Because the Trinsic faucet—its look inspired by modern European design—is both sleek and chic, elevating any bathroom. Sometimes traditionally styled faucets are trendy, as is the case with the Woodhurst® bathroom faucet. Its look is beautifully powerful, with an alluring charm that immediately feels familiar and warm, like home. While these faucet styles may be trends, it is only a matter of time before they become the new barometer by which we measure timeless.

The Mateo® kitchen faucet needs no grand introduction. One glance in its direction, and you’ll know why the transitional design has become a wildly popular addition to many kitchens. The stature of the faucet is both subtle and dynamic—it makes a strong design statement yet doesn’t overwhelm. The Trinsic kitchen faucet is a lively standout. It’s impossible to ignore the sophistication of this suave, urban faucet. Like other Delta faucets, the Trinsic kitchen collection comes with a cache of innovative options like Touch20 Technology, Diamond Seal® Technology, MagnaTite® Docking, and Touch-Clean® Spray Holes.

It’s easy to play it safe, but good design is all about taking chances. Once upon a time, Matte Black and Champagne Bronze finishes seemed like outrageous selections for a faucet, both colors feeling too daring. Fast-forward and here we are, in a time when Matte Black and Champagne Bronze are considered highly desirable, contemporary options when designing the kitchen of your dreams. Champagne Bronze is a muted brushed gold finish that feels modern enough to be on the cutting edge. The tone is warm and welcoming—this is not a finish you’ll tire of. Matte Black is confident and dark but utterly sophisticated in its ability to work with a variety of colors and design styles (traditional to transitional to contemporary), its contrasting finish providing a poignant design touch.

The lesson in all this? Selecting a timeless faucet or finish is always a safe bet, but don’t discount an edgier option, as it just might be the next welcome standard. In the end, your design style comes first, so opt for the faucet and finish that inspires and completes your space, regardless of whether it’s timeless or rising trend.
