Faucets with brass finish look more stylish. However to cater your pocket you can use the chrome faucets that are enameled in color to produce a better effect. Those with clean lines and few details are used by more sophisticated people, while those with fluting or floral motifs look traditional.
Toilets are designed beautifully now a days, you should choose the fittings that best suit the color of the tiles. Also an appropriate brand and material should be chosen because if you buy the products of a bad material they are likely to get stained easily and produce ugly look.
