There are so many Brushed Brass finishes available on the market, it is often difficult to know what will coordinate well with your Brushed Brass faucets, bathroom hardware, or other decor.

In this article, we will take a look at two brands: Cosmas Hardware and Diversa Hardware.

Each brand offers a Brushed Brass finish, and while both are beautiful in their own right, they are slightly different.

Cosmas Brushed Brass and Diversa Brushed Brass

Cosmas Brushed Brass

Cosmas Brushed Brass tends to gravitate to the lighter-side of brushed brass. Feedback that we receive from customers often include words like "yellow" and "bright".

In some ways, this leads us to comparisons of "polished" brass, which was so popular decades ago. While the Cosmas Brushed Brass finish is not polished, the color tone does share qualities of the polished brass finishes that were once so prevalent.

Under normal, everyday lighting, the Cosmas Brushed Brass finish appears lighter, with more of a "yellow" hue instead of gold.

Diversa Brushed Brass

The Diversa Brushed Brass finish, by contrast, tends to be a little darker, deeper, and have more of a "gold" tone.

For this reason, Diversa Brushed Brass coordinates very well with some of today's most popular faucet finishes from Moen, Kohler, and many other brands. These finishes are are often called "Brushed Gold", rather than "Brushed Brass". However, the deeper gold tones in the Diversa Brushed Brass finish compliment these faucet finishes very nicely.

With more gold tones, the Diversa Brushed Brass finish tends to contrast more with both darker and lighter cabinets, and blends nicely with many of the most popular gold finishes.
