GOT TREND: How to Mix Metal Finishes

We love the look of mixed metal finishes throughout a home. It can add dimension and character, but there is definitely a method to the madness. Below we’ve rounded up a few helpful tips and examples.

Pick a Primary Finish

Rather than having equal parts of each metal finish, pick a primary finish and then mix in an accent finish. If you're wary about which metals to mix, then start small to get a feel for what kinds of metals work well together.

Separate By Height

Separate each metal by height by keeping similar finishes on the same plane. For example, use one finish for lighting, use another one for the faucet, and another for the hardware.

Create Balance

Make sure to spread the primary metal finish thought the space to ensure there is balance and an overall cohesiveness.
