Would you buy Chrome light fixture?

14 years ago

Good Afternoon everyone :)

OK, I am in the process of a kitchen and bath remodel and I have a question for you if you don't mind.

The faucet that I am buying is the Grohe "Allure" wall mount faucet (see link please as I can't post pictures) along with the towel bars, toilet roll holder etc and they all only come in chrome.

We also need to replace our light fixture and I am thinking of this one from Restoration Hardware as I think it will look good with the faucet etc.

My question is, would you buy it in chrome also or a satin nickel or brushed nickel? I guess I ask because I don't "think" I love chrome (I always think of my first apartment - yuck) but I know chrome is, and can look, sleek elegant and expensive. I really don't want to mix finishes but I just can get past the word "chrome" - I know silly right :) Also, is chrome "dated" - I don't think so because it can look very contemporary and sleek in the right style (read non 1980's apartment faucet lol)

As I live in the Caribbean I am having to buy sight unseen so I can't just go to RH and look - any advise you can give is greatly appreciated - just tell me I am being silly :)
