In life, there are many unwritten rules- like don’t wear multiple patterns in one outfit. There is no unwritten rule saying that the metals in your kitchen have to match. It actually can create a more composed, contemporary, beautiful style. It can create a timeless and on trend look. Kitchens designed by the professionals frequently feature more than one metal as different metals can pull in additional styles. However, you must make sure there is intentionality behind where you place each metal.
One guiding principle is to evaluate the color scheme of your kitchen. If your kitchen is full of beiges, creams or brown tones, you might want to use warm brass, nickel or copper. If your kitchen consists of cool tones like greens, blues, or grays, you may want to consider chrome or silver hardware. Metals can also balance the overall color temperature of a room- copper finishes tend to brighten a space while dark finishes can complement lighter colors. Whatever metals are within your design plans, you want to make sure each metal is used throughout the space and not just in one spot. This helps balance the room and create a cohesive look.
