Stainless Steel Sink — what color faucet – Stainless vs bronze?

Major remodel w/ a European Country feel. The kitchen sinks are stainless steel. I tend to like the oil rubbed bronze or coppery bronze faucets over the stainless steel ones which match. My cabinets are a med cherry finish, granite is creamy, bronze, charcoal & brown tones & floor is lt-med tavertine tile. While stainless faucets are "safe", my thoughts are to go with the coppery bronze & pick up some more copper in the kitchen like in the wall tile behind the stainless steel stove & use bronzey hardware on the cabs. Because I like "old world – antiquey" things vs "modern" which I think stainless represents — what do you think — stainless faucets or copper bronze? Oh, the light fixtures & counter stools will be bronze iron also.

      Go with Copper Bronze sink! Goes really well the cherry cabinets and tavertine tiles! You could also add a few potted plants around the sink areas to further enhance the European Country look.

      I NEVER play it safe when it comes to decorating! I recommend you do the same… Either bronze finish would look terrific!

      btw… your kitchen sounds gorgeous! You have made some terrific choices so far, trust your instincts!

      Stainless faucet will look better with a stainless sink. I would recommend changing your sink out for a white or cream colored one to reflect the old world look, then go with the bronze faucet.

      Your kitchen sounds beautiful. I am a huge fan of bronze myself. However, with the stainless sink, the stainless faucet might look better. If you have an option to change out the sink I would, to something cream or white. Then the bronze would look outstanding, without a doubt.
