Is Bronze Better: A Close Look at Shower Door Finishes
The innovation of bronze several millennia ago gave humans the ability to make harder and more durable metal objects than ever before. Although ancient, bronze has many modern applications and adds warm earth tones to whatever it touches.
Bronze tones have emerged as a trend across many industries, from makeup to fashion to home décor. When working bronze into your bathroom décor, remember that coordination is more important than a perfect match. Feel free to feature different shades of bronze hardware in one room, especially if you’re coordinating with shower doors and fixtures.
To incorporate bronze in your bath, try the Delta Shower Doors design tool. Select the type of door you need (sliding shower or tub), as well as the pattern of glass you’d like. Choose the traditional track style and the bronze track finish. Decide whether you want a towel bar only on the outside of the sliding door to allow for more bathing space (the Simplicity handle) or whether you prefer an extra bar inside the shower. There also are five bronze handle styles to choose from: Simplicity, Silverton, Crestfield, Lyndall or Mandara.
If you need a pivoting door, choose the bronze track finish and a coordinating knob in one of three finishes: Silverton, Lyndall or Mandara. All Delta Shower Door tracks, handles and pivoting knobs are available in the Delta Oil-Rubbed Bronze finish. It’s a vibrant and rich finish, with copper reveal for added appeal.
Coordinate your bathroom accessories in everything from distressed to dark vintage bronze finishes. Delta has a variety of faucets, robe hooks, towel bars and other accessories in Oil-Rubbed Bronze, as well as Venetian Bronze, which works well with this look. There is also a lighter Champagne Bronze option that complements the available shower fixtures while adding contrast.
Embrace this dramatic design trend and incorporate bronze into your next bathroom remodel with a Delta Shower Door. It is easy to match with your décor and will provide a warm, rich look for years to come.
