Sensor Faucets and select from the many styles and finishes the one that suites your specific design and functions.
The Nickel Sensor Faucets
The nickel sensor faucet has all the durability of chrome, plus it stands up to scratches and water spots a little better than its shinier counterpart. It also provides a more toned down, softer look. Nickel finishes are generally more expensive than chrome, and work well in transitional style kitchens. Satin and brushed nickel generally have a similar appearance; manufacturers simply use different terminology.
The Chrome Motion Sensor Faucets
Chrome is durable, inexpensive and easy to maintain. The polished chrome provides a shiny, lustrous look that fits in well with contemporary kitchens—in fact, chrome has become more popular in the United States as contemporary kitchen styles have gained ground. You can also find softer chrome finishes, such as matte or brushed, which can go with most kitchen styles.
Oil Rubbed Bronze ORB Sensor Faucets
This dark ORB finish matches the old world charm of Venetian and Coal Bronze finishes. This finish gives an elegant appearance that is sought after in today’s upscale homes. Solid brass construction is designed to give years of performance and quality looks. Oil-rubbed bronze motion sensor faucet finish is a little darker than brushed bronze. (In fact, oil-rubbed bronze varies in shade from brand to brand, being nearly black in some lines.) ORBronze finishes are usually a little more expensive than nickel and brass, and are often used in country, rustic, Old World and traditional style bathrooms.
Oil-rubbed bronze goes hand in hand with traditional and Tuscan or Mediterranean settings. It is durable, easy to clean and easy to find. Normally it is easy to match oil-rubbed bronze faucet or fixture with accessories and other bath fixtures. The ORB finish versus other fixture finishes will not show water spots or fingerprints.
Stainless Steel Sensor Faucets
Like chrome, stainless steel touchless faucets are durable and easy to maintain. Stainless doesn't show spots as easily as chrome, but it also costs more, typically comparable to nickel. Stainless has the advantage of matching and blending with a stainless steel sink and stainless steel appliances.
