Published at Saturday, 19 January 2019. Kitchen Faucet and Sink. By Thomsen Freja.
Steampunk isn’t the only vintage design style you might be interested in. A gold faucet with separate decorative handles can add a touch of timeless elegance to any kitchen. Gold is also a good color choice if the rest of the kitchen feels fairly bland. Adding a fixture that stands out helps break up the monotony in a room where most of the other fixtures and surfaces are white.
Unlike the bathroom lavatory, which might have been made of marble or china with fluted edges, the kitchen sink was likely to be prosaic in both shape and material, and to have become chipped and stained over the years. So when it came time to update the rest of the room, off it went to the local landfill.
Keep in mind that no choice is radically wrong. Our forebears were apt to use any number of materials, depending on available local resources, and these all changed over intervening decades. However, you can make some assumptions based on region (heavy stone was expensive to ship from New England quarries, for instance) and technology (stainless steel wasn't widely available until the 1940s).
