There was a time when kitchens were dominated by stainless steel and nickel fixtures. But now one of the biggest trends in kitchen design is—brass. For the last few years, brass has been introduced in the form of fixtures, pendants, pulls and even barstools but today we're also seeing that brass has made its way onto countertops, islands, hoods and even backsplashes. 

Needless to say, brass makes a bold statement and acts as the perfect foil to the traditional rustic look. Homeowners are more ready than ever to leave behind the predictable kitchen designs of the past and opt for something a little more daring and glamorous. This kitchen trend looks and feels fresh and doesn't seem to be going anywhere fast. Read on to see how brass is trending in some of the most stylish kitchens around.


Island Glam

Design by Emily Henderson

For many kitchens, the island is the focal point of the room. So why not give it some extra design gusto with a shiny gold finish. This look is gorgeous when paired with natural wood cabinetry and a vintage runner to give it that eclectic mix of modern and rustic.

Go metallic with an impactful backsplash. Practical and easy to clean, a brass backsplash adds instant luxury to the kitchen. It's glamour at its finest!

 

Captivating Cabinets

You may have seen brass cabinets in bars or butler pantries but we're also seeing it in kitchens. Of course, at the end of the day form is equally as important as function.

Make a bold statement with shiny brass countertops. It's a completely unexpected look and a great complement to rustic shaker style cabinets. It's that new modern traditional look we're seeing all over Pinterest.

Dazzling Hoods

Design by CWB Architects

Hoods can seem like a necessary evil—functional for sure, but many times far from fantastic-looking. However, your ventilation system doesn't merely have to be utilitarian. A beautiful brass hood can actually help define and elevate the entire look of the kitchen. 

Beautiful interior design.

Easy, affordable, and all online.
