Should kitchen faucet match cabinet hardware in terms of the type of metal? For example, if my faucet is polished nickel should I select kitchen pulls in polished nickel as well? Or should I use mixed metals?
Well, I am risking to be not in vogue, but I would still say, “Yes! Most of the time the kitchen faucet should match cabinet hardware!”
But, sometimes strategically placing different metals next to each other can work for you, add interest or even make a statement.
When should the kitchen faucet match and when is it okay to mix metals?
- In a bohemian-inspired kitchen, you can have many different elements mixed up together including metals finishes. Because the Bohemian style of decorating is all about happy co-existence of different cultures it is perfectly okay to mix stainless steel with a gold finish, for example.
If you are not sure about the color of the faucet and how it’s going to match I have a different solution:
Two-toned metals for your cabinets’ hardware or crystals.
Who says that kitchen pulls have to have just one finish? I found some great cabinet pulls and knobs that don’t have to match the faucet. For example, if your faucet is chrome, you can pick a two-tone chrome and gold color cabinet pulls. If you prefer crystal to dress up the kitchen, go for it and don’t worry about matching at all. Below are some more options that you can buy by clicking on them. Is there anyone of them that you fell in love with? Tell me what is your favorite pull or knob.
I constantly keep on adding more images of options for you, guys, together with my comments here below. Please post your questions. I’ll be happy to help you!
