The tile in my master shower has been chipping and falling off for almost a year so I have a plan in place to remove much of the tile and replace it with a better installation. I have a few insets for shampoo/conditioner so I was looking at different tile patterns and this installation stopped me in my scroll because the brass trim around the edges was to me the perfect detail.
So I looked around and found even more examples of thin brass lines used to accentuate spaces in various installations. Some examples:
around a shower niche
as trim on kitchen cabinets
as a grout substitute in between tile
on dresser drawers
on bathroom vanities
on kitchen range hoods
as part of a mosaic backsplash
as a dramatic accent on a tile floor
as inlay with a wood floor
Brass trim and edging can be found at most home improvement stores, tile stores, or online.
The edging is for flooring and tile installations, but some of the other strips and trims can be used for DIY projects to trim furniture, picture frames, etc. I’m tempted to add brass strips to my next dresser makeover. :)
