Brushed steel and glossy black finishes are the next big trend for 2017. Brushed steel has been finished with a slight texturing, made by abrasing it slightly and leaving marks all running in the same direction.
Unlike stainless steel, it doesn’t need polishing and it doesn’t show marks or fingerprints, so it’s a practical choice as well as an attractive one. If you’re a fan of industrial-style interiors, you’ll love these brushed steel home accessories.
