It is recommended by most companies, including Whitehaus, to purchase fixtures and accessories by the same brand for best matching result. The same terms may be used to describe the finish but depending on the company the end result may be different. The only finishes that are usually close matches are chrome, brushed nickel and stainless steel. These will generally blend even if the fixtures are not made by the same manufacturer. Visit a showroom or display to see in person whether two different brand products are similar.
