The New Metal

While brass remains a popular choice in 2023, graphite/titanium is starting to be introduced throughout several kitchen suppliers. I am very excited about this trend, especially since the Sherwin Color of the Year, Redend Point, lends itself to a beautiful earthy palette.

If you’re looking to do a remodel, I highly recommend that you consider the new graphite/titanium metal products that are popping up in the market.

Baldwin Estate Collection: In their top-of-the-line collection, Baldwin Hardware leans into the gunmetal shade with a brand new graphite nickel finish. Fully customizable with a mixed metal option, Baldwin is a great choice for on-trend hardware.

Brizo Tulham Collection: For something a little more bold, I love Brizo’s Matte Black / Brilliance Black Onyx for kitchen hardware. Its elegant contours contrast with the intensity of the finish in a beautiful way, adding a focal point without feeling too heavy.

Monogram’s Titanium Collection: Titanium provides a softer finish for an understated yet luxury feel. It’s a great option for lighter kitchens, smaller spaces, or to compliment a biophillic style. For those who have their eyes set on brass, Monogram provides an option for that as well.

Native Trails Precious Metals Collection: I’ve loved this collection for a while now. Hand glazed with precious metals by Italian artists, now what’s not to love about it? Their addition of gunmetal will set any bathroom apart.

Cambria’s Berkshire Steel Sculpted: The graphite trend isn’t only being seen in hardware, it’s also in tile. The natural veins in the tile provide a perfect balance of color and texture to any kitchen. The combination of steel, gray, and warm marble provide a naturally modern feel.

Yes, these looks are new, but in a very classic way. With the trend to Biophilic nature incorporated interiors, I think these looks are here to stay. So many have trended toward matte black finishes in plumbing and more over the last few years. This is just evolution to the next level.

And if you're looking for help in how to incorporate these beautiful looks, we're just a phone call away!
