Satin Brass: Finish Focus

What is Satin Brass?

Satin Brass is an incredibly popular finish that is not only completely on-trend but also has a classic look, kitchens historically have had brass hardware so this finish is really the best of both worlds! This finish has a golden tone that within home design has become synonymous with opulence and style.

Because the finish is so timeless, it can be used in almost any room of any style, for example, knurled brass fits into contemporary designs while the classic cup handle always works in classic kitchens.

Choosing Satin Brass Handles

There aren't any rules about which type of handles or knobs to pick, it's largely down to how you want them to feel. For example, a cupboard knobs allow for the most flexibility, but might not be accessible for all people, meaning a different type of handle is required. Why not try out a few types to see which is the best choice for your home.

For larger cupboards or heavier drawers you might want to consider something longer, with two fixings, this would usually be a cup handle or cupboard pull handle. As you can see for a uniform feel, cup handles can be used in pairs, or longer handles can be used. Another way to create a uniform look would be to use cupboard knobs on every cupboard, creating small hints of gold among the wood, neutral or colourful design scheme.

Alternatively, mixing cabinet handles, knobs and cup handles while keeping the hardware finish the same can help bring a room together. Cup handles on drawers and cupboard knobs on cabinets is a convention synonymous with country kitchens, especially modern ones! While using cupboard handles on the bottom cupboards and knobs on the top might be the most functional combination for your kitchen.
