Pros: Brushed brass is at home in a wide range of design styles, including traditional, heritage, modern, and contemporary. Its visual contrast adds appeal, especially when paired with a modern style or an all-white bathroom with timber accents. It also provides balance to cool-toned room designs, adding warmth. Unlike typical polished brass, brushed brass is resistant to smudges and fingerprints, maintaining its aesthetic without regular polishing and cleaning. Its muted tone blends naturally with the overall bathroom design, offering understated elegance. Additionally, as a central feature or wall mixer, brushed brass tapware creates a striking focal point. Finally, it is more durable and requires minimal maintenance compared to other finishes.


Cons: Finding matching accessories for brushed brass can be challenging, including plugs and wastes. Careful selection of complementary features and elements is crucial to maintain a cohesive and elegant décor..
