Xpost - Advice on door hardware

blackchamoisNovember 20, 2012

I am remodeling several rooms in my condo as well as painting the entire place - walls, ceilings, doors, trim. I would like to replace all the interior door hardware. I currently have a mix of antique brass and chrome (builder choice, not mine).

I was originally going to replace them with a brushed nickel, but I really like the dark hardware (as in this photo).

My question is this ... My finishes in the newly remodeled bathrooms are chrome. The cabinet hardware in the kitchen will be brushed nickel. I know that mixing finishes is okay if it complements the overall look, but I am wondering if the dark hardware will look funny? Or if based on my location (I am in a condo in So Cal (Orange County), if this will look out of place for the area that I am in?

Thank you!!!

For the bathroom, do a split finish. Chrome on the inside and black or ORB on the outside. That's what we did, and it looks "right" to me.
