Inspiration for Mixing Metals in Your Home

It can be difficult to stray from the idea of matching everything in your space, but usually, the best designs push the envelope by taking risks and breaking the traditional “rules.” Hopefully, you’ll find mixing the metals in your space just as liberating as I do!

Choose the finish you’d like to showcase.

Decide which finish you would like to highlight in your space and let it steal the show. Other finishes, like the gold seen below, blend in well with a muted countertop or backsplash and work as a delicate accent.

Take your metal to another level.

If you’re already toying with the idea of using two cabinet colors in the kitchen, go ahead and choose a different metal for each cabinet color.

Don’t fear trying something new. Play with your design and mix the metals you love; it will add a fun twist to your room!
