In the 1920s, an ore with a naturally occurring mix of copper and nickel (with a dash of iron, manganese, silicon, and carbon) was tapped to make Monel, a corrosion resistant, lightweight white metal. Stainless steel, a blend of several different iron and chromium alloys, was studied as early as 1821, but until 1909 no one knew how to make it corrosion resistant. The material took off in the 1940s and '50s, not only for sinks but in countertops.
A brushed nickel faucet is the ideal choice for someone who wants to strike a balance between contemporary and classic styles. The minimal design and sleek sheen of this faucet type blends with the subtle aged quality of brushed nickel to bridge the gap between the new and the old. Consider this style if you’re thinking about upgrading your whole kitchen in the future, but haven’t yet chosen a design plan. It’s versatile enough to match any major style.
Nickel silver was harder and stronger than copper and, by varying the nickel content, could take on yellow, green, pink, and blue tones. Copper, as any of us who've invested in copper cookware know all too well, doesn't retain its blinding shine without a lot of elbow grease. Most old-house owners are content to let it take on the dark brown patina of an old penny.
