Choosing a Roman Tub Faucet
Because of their design roman tub faucets add opulence to the bathroom and tub area. The handles are attached to the deck of the tub, instead of the wall or bath itself, and has an elegant sweeping arched spout. They are styled after the great ancient Roman baths that were present all over Europe. The sleek lines and mounting design are reminiscent of a bygone era and has been modernized for an elegant, luxurious look to your bathroom.
Modern bathrooms are becoming larger, because of this, more and more people are going with stand alone type bathtubs that are removed from the wall and shower enclosure. A roman tub faucet is ideal for this type of bath configuration.
Your faucet material and finish is the key to achieving an ancient Roman aesthetic. Roman decor features rough textures and rich, earthy colors. However, when choosing a bath faucet, you should try to match the faucet to existing fixtures.
For example, if your sink faucet is made of brushed nickel, choose a faucet with a similar finish. If you’re decorating a new bathroom or replacing all of your fixtures, go for an oil-rubbed bronze finish for a distinctly Roman feel with a rich, dark finish and a rough texture. Brass finishes also suit Roman design, and are extremely durable.
