Brass hardware is one of our favorite things! It can be just the thing to update a space to give it a whole new look. We get a lot of questions about how to use brass without going too overboard.
The most important thing we can suggest is to make sure your brasses match. Brass comes in a few different finish styles; antique, bright, matte. Make sure when you are choosing hardware to use the same finish style throughout the room.
Another thing to note everywhere has a different look of brass, so it is important to see it in real life. We recommend buying your hardware either in the store or just buy one piece online.
Here we have an example of an antique brass finish. Antique finishes are typically more dull, almost a brownish coloring.
Bright brass can also be called polished brass or lacquered brass. Usually, this is shiny and more of a yellow tint. Bright brass differs a lot in different stores, so make sure you have seen it in real life.
Matte brass is very similar to bright brass without the shiny finish. This bathroom is a great example of the matte finish that matches throughout the entire space.
We have gathered together some of our favorite brass hardware in all different shapes and finishes.
