Stainless steel, chrome and brushed nickel are the most readily available metals for kitchen hardware. Put a fresh but classic spin on your kitchen island with satin brass. While polished- and lacquered- brass styles come across as dated, the understated look of satin brass is more transitional and up to date.
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.
