What was once considered, well, brassy is now something to covet and keep. Designers have been turning away from polished brass and are now embracing satin or brushed brass, which is more muted and warm.
To keep a brass worktop clean all you need to is dish soap and a sponge or soft cloth. If you use any other cleaning agent it might stain helping the patina to develop faster.
It doesn’t get more unique than brass, especially if you age it. The best part of having this as a worktop material is that it is a living surface and will change appearance quite drastically. This is a bonus if you’re adventurous and love that worn in look.
Much the same as copper, brass will also develop a patina over time. Some people love the aged look while others want it to look more polished.
Brass has natural antimicrobial properties! But be warned if you seal the worktop for a uniform look this will neutralise these properties.
Not heat proof
Although some say it’s fine to put a hot pan down on a copper or brass surface we don’t recommend this. It will cause the metal to expand and warp.
