Hello 1bobd!


When you refer to "trim" I suppose you are referring to the handles and faucet body.


A very simple answer is Yes!


Most manufacturers use a specific spline on their plumbing valves.


The spline is the tip of the valve where the faucet handle attaches.


Almost all manufacturers make replacement handles in different finishes ... brushed nickel, chrome, polished brass, etc.


And, each makes these suitable to match the splines on their valves.


Faucet heads and/or faucet bodies are also made in a variety of finishes.


The absolute best resource to help you match your new look to your old faucet is your Kitchen and Bath Associate.


They have catalogues that allow you to order the correct faucet handles to match your manufacturer.



Like most projects, cost will certainly be a consideration when changing your "trim."


At some point, you will be better replacing the entire faucet, rather than replacing pieces.
