Finishing touches

Choosing finishes for your lighting and bath fixtures


Your lighting and bathroom finishes give you an opportunity to add your personality and tie elements of your home’s decor together. Choosing the final touches, such as, bath and lighting fixture finishes, can be one of the most personal aspects of decorating. This is where you are able to make your mark on your space. You can incorporate current trends, embrace tried-and-true classics, or follow your own intuition when choosing the finishes of fixtures for your home.


You need to ask yourself, which finish or finishes appeal to you? Are you looking for a contemporary or classic feel? Farmhouse or Mid Century? There are nearly endless options to choose from.

Gold finishes are bold and give a look of warmth and opulence. Matte black fixtures add a sleek and modern feel to your kitchen or bathroom.

Many plumbing and lighting suppliers also mix metals in their products, combining black and gold, black and glass, and copper and black. The options when mixing metals is endless and it’s important not to be afraid to be bold with your metal finishes to create a unique “wow factor.”

DESIGNER TIP: When choosing your finishes, keep in mind that they don’t need to match. You are looking for fixtures to complement one another. However, if matching is important to you, consider purchasing all of your fixtures and accessories from one manufacturer. This will ensure that the finish options are consistent throughout your home.


ROBINSON’s showrooms carry a wide variety of quality brands at different price points. Many have extensive finish options to suit any style.
