Brass Trim Uses in Design

By Kate Riley June 8, 2020

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

bilinga beach abode

as trim on kitchen cabinets

marie flanagan interiors

as a grout substitute in between tile

studio mcgee

on dresser drawers

restoration hardware

on bathroom vanities

 jenkins interiors

on kitchen range hoods

london painting group

as part of a mosaic backsplash

tile bar

artistic tile

as a dramatic accent on a tile floor

 lowitz & company

as inlay with a wood floor

istoria wood floors

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. :)
