Did you remodel your kitchen over the past couple of years? If you did, you're in good company - about 74 million Americans did a major remodel in 2021!
Now it's time to get some great brass accessories to complement it.
We Dressed Up Our New Kitchen Counters with Allied Brass Accessories
We were among those who recently remodeled an outdated and frankly, falling-apart kitchen. And while it was exciting to get a new oven and range, new cabinets, and a new kitchen sink, our kitchen counter stood out most!
Houzz reports that new countertops are the most common feature of any kitchen remodel, with more than 90% of homeowners reporting new kitchen countertops. Allied Brass has several countertop accessories to enhance this upgrade.
Brass Mug Holder and Organizer
We had been admiring Allied Brass' line of mug holders for some time. Now we had a great reason to get one - and boy, it gets lots of complements even when we haven't offered coffee.
Finish: Oil-rubbed brass
GIS, by the way, stands for Geographic Information Studies, for which our almost-perfect child will graduate with a BS from Arizona State University in a couple of months. He's been getting the mugs since junior year. (Don't worry about the voodoo mug - it's just a souvenir from Marie Laveau's in New Orleans.)
Allied Brass also offers a four-mug countertop holder. There are also wall-mounted and under-the-cabinet styles that save space. Be sure to see the full line, which now come in 19 standard finishes.
Brass Countertop Towel Stands
We also decided we needed a countertop towel stand to keep our tea towels handy.
Finish: Antique Brass

We initially expected most of these towel stands to serve as vanity top stands, but they're just as popular in kitchens. The arms on this style swivel into different positions, allowing for towels to easily dry out.
Many of our vanity top towel stands come in a V-shape and hold two towels.
Finish: Brushed Bronze
Ring styles are also popular ways to hold guest or tea towels.
Finish: Polished Brass
Our YouTube channel features spin videos on dozens of Allied Brass accessories. See more of our countertop (or vanity top) towel stands.

Here's a quietly elegant wall-mounted paper towel holder from our Skyline collection:
