One of the things that people fret about the most about new lights is their metal finishes. Is it ever okay to mix oiled bronze and nickel or black and rose gold? In general, if you want to create a cohesive appearance, your faucets should match your other hardware, such as drawer handles and cabinet knobs. However, this does not have to be a perfect fit. For example, you could have a polished chrome faucet with brushed nickel cabinet hardware. Although they differ slightly, the color palette still looks cohesive.
“Even if you have chrome or nickel in your kitchen, you can still switch to brass or bronze or black in your bathroom,” says Nate Berkus, “but make sure it’s consistent.” As long as the finishes are consistent in the same room, it’s unlikely anyone will notice or care. In fact, changing finishes can be a fun way to diversify your space and create a more customized vibe for each room. Not everyone likes the idea of monotonous metals or can afford to rearrange their entire room at once, and that’s okay. Lily Ann Cabinets explains that even a mismatched room can still look intentional, especially if your home design has a more rustic, vintage, or farmhouse theme.
