How does it look with use?
We hear this question daily and we have a wide variety of answers because it is all based on how you use it and where it is installed. An outdoor kitchen near an ocean will look a lot different than a climate-controlled, heavily used restaurant bar. Either way, be prepared for a dynamic finish that changes frequently.
Typical Residential Kitchen
Be ready for spots to appear on the brass within the first few weeks of use. Usually the first marks will occur near work areas such as the sink or cooktop. As spots form, they will eventually overlap and form a mottled dark brown look. Frequency of cleanings, minerals in the water and type of use will all play a role in how it looks in your kitchen. All of the countertops on this page began with our Non-directional Matte finish.
