Design question: Island Pendant Lights - Black or Brushed Nickel?
In our kitchen remodel, we have white cabinets with GO granite and brushed satin nickel hardware. We have stainless steel appliances. We chose some pendant lights for the island and now need to select the color for those lights... brushed nickel or black?
The kitchen is open concept, and I was told that black would be OK because there are other black elements in the kitchen (like parts of the oven, microwave, range). And, since the kitchen opens up to the family room, there is black there (TV, etc.)
However, I see pictures of kitchens with white cabinets online, and it seems that the island pendants match the hardware. So, I'm undecided...
Should the kitchen fixtures match the hardware or not? Does it matter?
