For this warm, Moroccan inspired kitchen, all of the cabinets were custom made and lacquered white. To add visual interest to the design, custom panels of hand scraped White Oak laid out in a chevron pattern cover the refrigerator and freezer. Finally, un-lacquered brass appliance pulls, drawer pulls and cabinet hardware to finish the design.
For classic, transitional style, the basic cabinet hardware was replaced with high-end satin brass pulls that add warmth to the glossy red drawers and door fronts. To add a layered element, the brass hardware was paired with the stainless sink. To successfully mix metals in a room, choose no more than two different finishes.
The rumors are true: this spacious kitchen includes a butler's pantry. With its bright white cabinets, brass hardware and light wood floors, the narrow hall feels open and complements the rest of the kitchen.
Chrome, nickel and stainless steel finishes will never go out of style, but warm metallics offer a fresh, modern look. For a quick update, consider replacing your lighting, faucet or cabinet hardware with products in gleaming brass or bronze like the ones in this chic space. “The updated satin brass cabinet hardware is really striking against the simple shaker cabinets,” says designer Elizabeth Lawson.
Modern hardware is a great aesthetic alternative to standard chrome and brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and gives a bathroom a more traditional look and feel. Working on a budget? If you don’t want to purchase all the matching accessories and you have other brass items in your bathroom, such as an old light switch plate or cabinet knobs, you can always use a brass darkening solution to make all the hardware match.

This transitional kitchen is part of a renovated 1960s home. It was moved to the back of the house and opened up with the removal of several walls. It features an oversize island and black floor-to-ceiling Ikea cabinets with Caesarstone countertops and high-end brass hardware. Two globe pendant lights provide illumination for the space.
Think contrast. For an easy designer look, paint perimeter cabinets and keep the island stained or in an existing contrast color, says Georgia designer Michelle Mentzer. You also can change existing hardware (knobs and pulls) to an updated bronze or brass finish, she says.
