Brushed Brass - The Popular Bathroom Trend & How To Use It In Your Bathroom

One of the biggest trends of the year without a doubt is the brushed brass bathroom trend. A striking statement in any space, including it in your bathroom will make your room stand out from the crowd. Take a look at our top tips below to find out how to incorporate this trend into your new bathroom design.

What is brushed brass?

Brushed brass is a stylish and sophisticated finish characterised by its warm, golden appearance and matt textured surface. Unlike polished brass, which is often glossy or shiny, in brushed brass, the metal undergoes a finishing process that involves brushing or sanding. The result is that it has fine, parallel lines or grains.

Why choose brushed brass?

If you're looking for a burst of style and some modern elements to your bathroom then brushed brass could be exactly what you're missing. Brushed brass is known for its durability, resilience and resistance to tarnish. It is also easy to clean and maintain.

Use it sparingly

Brushed brass should be used simply and sparingly in a small space such as a bathroom. You want to add small subtle hints of brushed brass rather than a blinding amount. By doing so you will keep the bathroom looking light and modern and the brushed brass will be a luxurious detail rather than an overbearing colour. Consider using brushed brass handles or a basin mono for a splash of the colour.

Create contrast

To allow the brushed brass to stand out consider a darker contrasting colour palette such as deep blue or dark wood. These dark tones provide the perfect backdrop for the bright, warm tones of the brushed brass.

Opt for accents

Once you have a few key brushed brass fixtures, you can also incorporate accents such as soap dispensers and toothbrush holders. These will draw the eye and create a cohesive look that manages to remain elevated.
