Trend Alert: Brass Kitchens Are On the Rise
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.

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.
