Unlacquered Polished, Satin and Aged Brass finishes are known as “living finishes” and will develop an individual patina over time which, for some, is the appeal of brass.

The Aged Brass finish gives the slightly distressed, rustic effect of brass that has already started the aging process. It will continue to change as it reacts with its environment and daily use – we describe this as a ‘living finish’. Our finishers meticulously treat each component with a compound that mimics the natural aging process to give a natural look distressed surface. This beautifully aged finish will always add character to simplistic shaker style painted cabinets or an industrial style studio kitchen. Equally, Aged Brass has a darker finish that creates a tarnished, aged look that can be utilised in a vintage design with an urban twist.

To create this finish, expert polishers hand polish each component to a opulent shine and a warm glow that’s only possible when using real, high quality brass. A highly adaptable finish, polished brass has seen a massive resurgence recently and complements any traditional style kitchen. This is a living finish and therefore reacts uniquely with its environment creating an individual patina on each and every item each item. Over time this creates a distressed look, but can also be kept to a shine using a metal polish periodically. Polished Brass has a familiar quality appearance, radiating a warmth with coppery undertones.

Satin Brass is a muted, softer finish ideal for a more subtle and refined takes on the brass finish in any design. Each hand polished component is perfectly hand polished, then ‘unfinished’ three different polishing mops are used to evenly bring the surface to a luxurious matte effect. Satin Brass has understated style that works beautifully alongside light, airy kitchen designs as well as patterned tiled bathrooms.  Satin Brass has a matte finish with strong undertones of yellow ochre. It will change as it reacts with its environment and daily use – we describe this as a ‘living finish’.

Brass Finish Delivery and Lead Time

As Brass finishes are a specialist process and are made to order, the lead-time for these products is normally longer than standard finish products. The products have to go through a very rigorous inspection and quality checking regime before they are despatched and as such the lead-time can vary slightly to the quoted timeframe. As a special finish, once ordered these finishes cannot be cancelled or returned unless in the unlikely event of a manufacturing defect being evident.

Many of our products are available to purchase online in special finishes, however, should the website not show a product as available in the special finish, please contact us as we are normally able to supply most products in special finishes.
