Treat Satin Brass Like Jewelry for Your Home

The hardware that you use throughout the rooms of your home can have a big impact on the overall essence that the place exudes. In a way, door knobs, handles, and latches are like jewelry for your home. Statement-making hardware and accessories can add lovely texture to a room without cluttering up wall space or surfaces. You can take just about any space to the next level with something as simple as a satin brass finish—read on to find out how.

Satin brass is unique because of its rather matte sheen; it isn’t too rustic and it isn’t too flashy either. Because of these qualities, satin brash finishes are the perfect way to make a subtle statement that will look elegant with almost any color scheme.

Light Up Your Space With Satin Brass Light Fixtures

Whether you want to completely update your ceiling lights or just use a table lamp to add that little extra something to your space, bringing in lighting with a satin brass fixture will simultaneously modernize your space while giving it a trendy nostalgic charm.

Design West has a great post on the benefits of satin brass with amazing light fixture inspiration. A rich satin brass pendant light can make moderately priced kitchen or living rooms look custom made.

Use Satin Brass Pulls on Your Kitchen Drawers

One of the more amazing things about satin brass is that it coordinates well with other metals. That means that if you have stainless steel appliances in your kitchen, for example, you don’t need to opt for exclusively silver metals in your kitchen hardware. An article by Style Blueprint uses satin brass pulls as an example of how you can successfully mix different kinds of metal finishes in a kitchen setting.

Because of its soft, warm hue, satin brass blends well with other metals, so you can dress up the drawers in your kitchen with thin satin brass pulls that add an element of understated elegance to your space.

Bring a modern, trendy twist to your home with satin brass accessories and hardware. Remember, you don’t need to completely renovate all of the hardware in your home, as satin brass pairs well with other metals.
