Why You Should Be Using Brass Hardware

Using brass hardware offers numerous advantages that make it a popular choice in various design and architectural applications. Here are several compelling reasons to consider Clemo + Finch brass hardware:

  1. Timeless Aesthetic Appeal: Brass has a classic and timeless appearance that adds a touch of elegance to any space. Its warm hue is versatile, complementing both traditional and contemporary design styles.

  2. Durability and Longevity: Brass is an extremely durable and robust material, making it well-suited for high-traffic areas and frequent us - especially with little ones running around with messy hands! Unlike some other metals, brass is less prone to corrosion, rust, and is less likely to tarnish. This durability ensures that brass hardware retains its beauty and functionality over time, making it a wise investment for the long term. At Clemo +  Finch we lacquer our brass to ensure long lasting beauty. Got a question regarding our finishing? Get in touch. 

  3. Malleability for Intricate Designs: Brass is a highly malleable material, allowing our designer, Mike, to create intricate and detailed designs; the C+F knurl. This characteristic makes brass hardware an excellent choice for decorative elements, such as our ornate door handles, cabinet knobs, and other architectural features. 

  4. Versatility in Finishes: Brass can be finished in various ways to achieve different looks. Common finishes include polished brass for a bright and reflective surface, antique brass for a vintage and aged appearance, and satin or brushed brass for a more subdued and contemporary look. This versatility in finishes makes brass hardware adaptable to different design preferences and styles. To explore our finishes see our dedicated finish guide.

  5. Low Maintenance: Brass hardware is relatively low-maintenance. Its resistance to tarnishing and corrosion means that it requires less upkeep compared to some other materials. Periodic cleaning with a mild solution is usually sufficient to keep brass hardware looking its best. See our cleaning guide to ensure your brass stays timeless.
