Choosing the right hardware finish is an important step in any bathroom update—whether it’s a full gut remodel or a quick refresh. The perfect finish can make all the difference in your decor. Certain hardware finishes can help warm up a space, particularly in bright bathrooms that can sometimes feel cold. Bronze hardware creates interesting contrast in any otherwise white bathroom.




VIGO’s oil rubbed bronze offers a warm and rustic feel. The rich hue can be best described as a russet bronze, with deep gold undertones.


The unexpected crimson hue of this faucet or hardware finish works well in bathrooms that already have warmer materials. It can help bring out the warmth in neutrals or earth tones and organic textures and edges. Whereas more traditional silver fixtures can feel jarring in a bathroom full of natural shades, oil rubbed bronze provides a satisfying compliment. For an interesting and unique take, you can also install oil rubbed bronze faucet fixtures in a white bathroom space to create a glowing effect.


It’s important to note: VIGO’s oil rubbed bronze is an exclusive finish. Our engineers specifically developed this finish. As a result, VIGO oil rubbed bronze can differ from other manufacturer’s similarly named finishes.

VIGO’s antique rubbed bronze pulls in warm, lustrous tones of chocolate and gold. While it also offers the same warm feeling of oil rubbed bronze, the darker and more dramatic antique rubbed bronze finish provides additional depth and contrast to your kitchen or bathroom space.


Our designers love using antique rubbed bronze faucets in otherwise-white bathrooms or kitchens. They’re a great way to provide an interesting breakup to a stark space that’s less high-contrast than black fixtures. Much like oil rubbed bronze finishes, VIGO antique rubbed bronze also provides a warm and illuminating compliment to neutral décor. An antique rubbed bronze faucet would look stately and chic paired with warm wood cabinets and a natural stone countertop.


If you’re hoping to match VIGO fixtures with those produced by other manufacturers, you may find that VIGO’s antique rubbed bronze matches other manufacturer’s oil rubbed bronze finishes.
