On Trend: Brass and Copper Kitchen Finishes

Redesigning your kitchen this year? Before you begin choosing the details, consider one of our new favorite design trends. After years of polished nickel and shiny chrome being the kitchen finishes of choice, fixtures, appliances, and hardware are beginning to undergo a warming trend: Metallics like brass and copper are coming back into fashion in a big way. Brass and copper began to creep back into style a few seasons ago, primarily in home décor like lighting, mirrors, and furniture detailing, and have begun to infiltrate kitchen design, too. One quick look at Pinterest will prove that popular bloggers, magazines, and designers are eagerly embracing the style, and it’s no wonder: the look is warm, lush, and classic all at once.

Ready to try the next big thing? Here are some of our favorite examples of brass and copper kitchen finishes from around the web.

We love Erin Gates’ kitchen, Newton, Massachusetts. The blogger and designer combined shades of gray and white with the unexpected addition of brushed brass hardware and fixtures.

For a bolder approach, a brass range hood makes an instant focal point, seen here in a shot from Dwell magazine. Paired with walnut wood tones, the finished product feels modern and inviting.


Here, a copper range hood lends an old world touch to a contemporary kitchen, and proves mixing metals creates a chic, one-of-a-kind look.

Looking for a quick update? A copper range (paired with copper cookware and open shelving) is an easy, but stunning way to incorporate the trend.
