How to Use Mixed Metal in a Kitchen Update
Mixed Metal Kitchen Guide
For many families, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s the place where everyone gathers, homework happens, food is shared and conversations take place. That’s exactly why it is one of the most popular rooms to remodel — and one of the most complicated. A lot of homeowners feel as though there is a lot riding on every decision. Each detail, from the layout to the wall color to the fixtures and finishes, can impact the overall look of the room.
Are you giving your home some updates? Do you hope you’ll end up with a kitchen that you and your family can enjoy for the long haul? If so, here’s a timeless idea to consider: Mixed metal.
Why Mix Metals?
A kitchen that is “matchy-matchy” does not create the same layered, high-end look that mixed metals can. Incorporating various metals allows you to use one statement piece as a focal point in the room — say, a copper range hood or bold satin brass pendant lights — instead of blending everything together. Mixed metals help a new kitchen feel a little more historical and timeless. Additionally, certain styles, such as farmhouse, are all about mixing new and old features to create a custom feel.
Renovating the kitchen is a great opportunity to make your home more functional and turn one of the most heavily used rooms in your home into a space that feels more organized and purposeful. If you’re looking to update your kitchen, try mixing metals in the design.
