Our Polished Brass finish has always been a firm favourite among those seeking a very traditional look, working as well in period and farmhouse style kitchens as in glamourous, art deco style bathrooms. The finish is essentially raw, high quality, low-lead brass that our expert polishers hand polish to give a perfectly even, warm coppery shine ready to be inspected, packaged and delivered. Polished Brass will gradually react with its environment over time to develop a unique, aged patina – so a few years after installation, no two taps will look exactly the same. Polished brass can be restored to its former shine, however for some this is the beauty in choosing a brass finish.
This aged or ‘vintage’ brass effect has had a major revival across all areas of interior design recently, where designers want that aged effect straight away for rustic or urban styles, or simply for a more ‘worn in’ take on the traditional kitchen.
So, our Product Development team got their gloves on and started to experiment with various methods to achieve this look without the wait. With a few trips back to the drawing board, they came up with a very precise method to mimic the natural aging process, giving us our brand new Aged Brass finish.
Aged Brass now sits alongside our full range of ‘Special Finishes’ – a set of five luxurious, warm metallic hues to bring a touch of style and unique character to your kitchen or bathroom. Perrin & Rowe Special Finishes consist of Polished Brass, Aged Brass, Satin Brass, Gold and English Bronze and are custom made to order in the UK. Whatever style and finish is right for your project, the Perrin & Rowe promise means you can be certain to install a timeless product that is built to stand the test of time.
