Trying to coordinate all of the fixtures in your kitchen? Having a tough time finding hardware to match? Tired of looking at sample after sample of hardware? Well, look no further! By popular demand, Cliffside is now offering a “finish guide” to coordinate our most popular colors with some of the biggest names in the kitchen and bath fixture industry.
To match Cliffside’s Antique Brass finish, we suggest Kohler’s “vibrant French gold,” which complements the warm golden tone of AB, or “vibrant brushed bronze,” which matches the detailing shown in an antique brass piece.
Coordinating with FB is no difficult task; however, Cliffside offers some suggestions. Both Moen and Kohler offer a “matte black” finish, which is the closest to Cliffside’s black; Delta’s “black” and Grohe’s “black” finishes will also match well. Kohler also offers a “black black” finish, which is more of a gloss black. You can coordinate with FB or with Cliffside’s Nickel Chrome finish. For a contrast, try black hardware with stainless steel.
Unfortunately, our research team was unable to locate any faucets that matched Cliffside’s Iron finish; however, it adds a decorative accent to any room while maintaining the popular gray tones that you might find in a standard stainless or black faucet.
Matching the Old Antique was certainly not our easiest job. The best match that we have located is American Standard’s “blackened bronze” finish, which highlights the rich, dark color of Old Antique. If you are looking for a contrast with your OA instead, consider the “ivory” finish from Moen, or the “biscuit” and “almond” finishes from Kohler.
None of the major manufacturers provide a copper finish to match Cliffside’s Old Copper at this time; however, there are plenty of antique copper faucets on the market from smaller manufacturers that would look smashing with this finish.
The old hardware standby, Polished Brass, is not wildly popular in the world of faucets and plumbing. However, American Standard still manufactures a “polished brass” faucet, and Kohler has the “vibrant polished brass” finish available, if the lustrous gold of PB strikes your fancy.
Does it get any easier than this? All five of the top manufacturers in the plumbing industry (Grohe, Delta, Moen, Kohler, and American Standard) make a wide variety of polished chrome faucets and fixtures; you can find nearly any style you want in this finish, and Cliffside’s recently expanded Polished Chrome line complements it perfectly. Kohler also offers a “brushed chrome” for a more subdued look.
In contrast to the popular Polished Chrome above, only Kohler, with their “vibrant polished nickel,” has a finish in faucets to match the warmer color of Cliffside’s Polished Nickel. However, for designers looking to utilize polished nickel hardware, a stainless or brushed nickel faucet should match the warm color tone very well.
The juggernaut of the plumbing industry, Cliffside’s Stainless Steel hardware (BNA finish) matches perfectly with any stainless steel fixture, which is offered by all of the top five manufacturers in a variety of styles. With this finish, you can match nearly any fixture style you prefer.
The Silver Satin will match any of the above stainless products and more! American Standard also offers a “satin nickel” finish, and Kohler offers a variety of gray-toned brushed finishes, including “vibrant stainless” and “vibrant brushed nickel.”
Cliffside’s VB finish takes its name from Delta’s “Venetian bronze;” however, it also shares a color tone with the “oil-rubbed bronzes” of Kohler and Grohe. The copper showing through on the details and edges matches well with all of these finishes, but if you want the hardware to be slightly more subdued, you can easily match all of these faucets with the Old Antique as well.
