Recently, we started working with a couple located in Pleasant Hill who came to Kaufman Construction wanting to add on to their 1524 square foot (main level) ranch built in 2000. The house features three bedrooms upstairs and a finished basement with a fourth non-conforming bedroom. The clients felt they needed additional space and improved traffic flow throughout their main floor, but were also budget-conscious.
For a while now, brass has been back in homes in a big way. It started with touches here and there - a pendant light, a vase, or a photo frame to add a little warmth and glam - but is now definitely part of modern home decor. Nowadays, it's showing up in bathroom fixtures, kitchen hardware, and even appliances. It's important to note, too, that much of the brass we're seeing now (especially in kitchens and bathrooms) is not the super shiny polished brass of the past; rather, it's often un-lacquered so it develops a unique patina as it ages.
