Brass range hoods for kitchens have become increasingly more popular in recent years due to other trends like brass hardware and fixtures. Brass looks beautiful in kitchens and works well mixed with metals, like stainless steel and zinc, because they’re also cool toned.
What is brass?
Brass is a yellowish alloy that resembles gold. It is made up of mostly copper and some zinc. Brass is a relatively low-maintenance metal that naturally patinas and shows wear over time as a result of oxidization. The slow naturally-occurring aging process is why brass is called a “living metal”. As far as we know, it has been used since around 500 BC for decorative purposes. The Romans loved it and used it to craft golden colored helmets, coins and other pieces. Like copper and bronze, brass does not rust.
