Oil Rubbed Bronze Kitchen Faucets

Oil rubbing of bronze creates a dark oxidized finish. Oil rubbed bronze kitchen faucets can add a touch of elegance to the kitchen decor. An oil rubbed bronze finish is a deep, dark finish with copper-colored undertones. The finish may be so dark that the faucet looks almost black with just hints of copper undertones along the edges or joints of the faucet.

The shade and amount of copper undertones that show in this finish are dramatically different among different manufacturers. An oil rubbed bronze finish can look deep brown to a very dark gray. Some finishes show a lot of copper color throughout the finish, while others show just the smallest amounts along edges of the faucet.

Matching other hardware to an oil rubbed bronze faucet can be a challenge since the precise color of the finish may be unique to a faucet manufacturer. An exact match may be impossible if the homeowner is trying to match other metals in the kitchen such as cabinet door handles to a unique oil rubbed faucet.
