Metals tend to come in trend every year for décor. Previous years had resurgences of copper and then rose gold. Recently brass has made its way into design trends as a response to the maximalist movement. Typically an antique metal, brass was most previously common in the 20th century in many collections. Today, brass can add a sleek finish to a kitchen and pops against an all white or neutral background. Here are a few ways you can incorporate brass into your kitchen.
Hardware. Any well-designed kitchen needs to take lighting into consideration. Pendant lights above a sink or bar is a great way to add a focal point to a kitchen. Light fixtures come in all shapes and sizes these days, including brass. Brass stands out against white or gray hues bringing in all the attention. They also can match perfectly with cabinet hardware.
Faucets. A faucet is no longer just a basic need in a kitchen, it’s also a design element! They come in unique shapes, finishes and metal options. Try a faucet with sophisticated curves and vintage knobs for an eye-catching accent to a marble countertop. An all white kitchen with brass fixtures will highlight a faucet even more.
Bar Stools. Kitchen bar stools are a perfect opportunity to add personality and character. You can pick stools that go with the rest of your design or go in the opposite direction to create a striking contrast. Brass stools can add an antique feel to a modern kitchen for a one of a kind kitchen. Match the stools with a light fixture or cabinet pulls to bring it all together.
