Our Top 3 Finishes

We believe that to create something truly exceptional, attention to detail must be given at every stage of production. When designing your dream kitchen or bathroom, the perfect finishing touches bring everything together, so it's essential to get them right. At Francone Bespoke Taps, we've designed our own exclusive range of finishes to bring quality, elegance and individuality to each and every tap we sell.

Finishes: key definitions

Do you choose bronze or brass or nickel? Here are a few definitions to keep in mind when browsing our range of finishes. Brass: A warm, yellow-coloured alloy that is a fantastic alternative to stainless steel. Bronze: A golden-brown, coppery finish that brings a touch of timeless minimalism to any interior. Unlacquered: Without lacquer, brass has a more rustic, matte finish that works perfectly with classic interior styles. Brushed: Also called dull polished, brushed metal results in a lovely, antique-inspired finish. Patina: The natural aesthetic change that happens to an alloy surface over time, resulting in a slightly green, matte hue. If you need a little help choosing the perfect taps for your home, here are the three finishes that our customers love the most.

1. Unlacquered Satin Bronze

Our luxurious satin bronze finish is available in unlacquered version to suit contemporary and classic style interiors. The warm, golden-brown hue of the bronze brings warmth and a rustic cosiness to any space and complements all colour schemes while retaining its functional appearance. Satin bronze tap is hand-brushed to give it a one-of-a-kind finish, so you can be sure you're getting something unique and artisan for your home. This unlacquered version is more discreet and will gather a natural patina over time ideal for more traditional decor.

2. Unlacquered Satin Brass

A striking finish with an attractive matte glow, our unlacquered satin brass option is available only in unlacquered version. The brass has a glorious golden hue that makes your taps a focal point worthy of attention, and the soft, smooth finish reflects light without appearing gaudy. The unlacquered satin brass finish brings a touch of modern freshness to a classic bathroom and adds warmth to a more minimalist kitchen whilst retaining its clean and functional feel.

3. Unlacquered Brass

Our most popular finish, unlacquered brass combines a vintage-inspired metallic look with a fresh, modern functionality. The look is achieved by creating an initially shiny, hand-polished finish before it is left unlacquered to allow the natural darkening and mattifying that occurs over time. Little by little, this finish will age gracefully, giving your interior a subtle, vintage-inspired look without compromising on quality or functionality. This look is only achieved by using the finest solid brass, rather than adulterated compounds we are proud to be one of the few providers who use such materials.

At Francone Bespoke Taps, we create products that are not only of the highest quality, but that are also one-off pieces to inject your living space with your own unique style. Browse our collection of bronze, brass and nickel finishes today to find the perfect finishing touches for your home.
