What are the most stylish finishes of metal to use in 2023?

The quality of metalwork and metal fixtures and fittings can have an enormous impact on the feel and design value of a house. Whether it is in the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or living room the use of metal is an essential part of the build of any home. With so many different colours and finishes on the market, it can be difficult to know which is the most stylish as we swiftly move towards 2023. As one of the most stylish interior design brands on the market, we are taking inspiration from the Buster + Punch range of hardware products. Accordingly, we have prepared a handy guide on all the runners and riders so you can make the most informed decision possible when choosing the finish of your new metalwork:

Brass – This is a beautiful metal with a rich and deep gold colour that gives it a feeling of luxury and opulence. Brass fixtures and fittings are perfect for those who want to evoke a sense of regality in their home, with the shimmering gold fit for a King or Queen. Brass is a very stylish metal.

Smoked Bronze – This metal is perhaps a little more subtle than brass but is no less stylish as a result. The darker shade of smoked bronze gives it a sultry and mysterious feel that is classy in bedrooms and living rooms but also practical in kitchens and bathrooms too (disguising fingerprints and general wear and tear). It’s a great option for busy families or busy couples who don’t want to compromise between design principles and practicality.

Black – Black famously goes with anything, looking great in every home and every space. Bringing a bit more modernity than brass or smoked bronze, black is stylish and contemporary – a brilliant choice for bringing a little spice to that bachelor pad.

Steel – Fresh and versatile, the beauty of a steel finish is in its simplicity which elevates the quality of metal as the star of the show. Suitable for all occasions and in any room of the house, a good bit of steelwork should be a mainstay in any home.

Burnt Steel – Sporting a stunning array of colours from silvers to reds to blues burnt steel items are incredibly striking and beautiful. Perfect as a centrepiece, quality bits of burnt steel hardware demand attention and enhance any room. Stylish and undoubtedly the star of any show.

Gun Metal –  This is a deeply attractive finish that has a full and intoxicating colour which evokes industry and style. A striking accessory to any hardware or lighting component, its gorgeous dark silvery hue is sure to leave an indelible impression on any who beholds it.
