Polished brass finishes have long been popular, and brass finishes have been making a comeback in recent years due to the rise in ‘shabby chic’ and ‘vintage’ interior design crazes. 2017, however, has seen a shift away from polished brass and instead a shift towards satin or brushed brass, creating a warmer and modern appearance.
Satin brass finishes are transitional and can complement a number of styles and colours, making it the perfect addition to any room. For this reason, it is expected to see rooms with satin brass continue to dominate the interior design scene for quite some time, although it is likely that they will begin to be mixed with other finishes to achieve a more quirky, unique and contemporaneous looks.
This trend is becoming increasingly popular in both kitchens and baths over the last year or so. Adding brass tones to the kitchen creates a combination of something very natural and clean, like white marble, and something industrial, hard, and a little bit glamorous with the brass, for a traditional, modern style.
t is important to remember that this trend can work virtually anywhere, with brass being used as a stylish alternative to the ever-popular chrome taps and accessories seen in people’s abodes.
Thankfully, you’ll be pleased to know that brass finishes aren’t going to set you back too much as they don’t have a hefty price tag attached. So get re-decorating!
