Thoughts On Mixing Finishes
I'm planning on creamy white cabinets & island topped with creamy/golden sage granite. My kitchen is open to DR, LR, sunroom areas that have either antique brass or black finishes on the hardware. I plan on a stainless sink and chrome faucet. Appliances will be stainless.
So, my question is what to choose for the finish on the 2 pendant lights over the island and for knobs & pulls.
Chrome or brushed nickel seems too harsh in relation to the other rooms open to the kitchen. If I went with a warmer finish like antique brass, will I have to carry that over to my knobs & pulls? I really am not wanting to do that. It seems they'll be "off" next to the stainless appliances. I would consider black if I were going with soapstone or a dark counter but I would prefer something less jarring with the soft cab/counter combo.
