Mixed materials and finishes on everything from cabinets to hardware and fixtures has become popular as well as cabinetry with open shelving and even sliding doors. Appliances in a variety of colors are also trending.
Mixing metals is a great way to add visual interest, particularly in a kitchen. When you mix metals, like bronze and brass, you are creating depth. This works so well in a kitchen because you have the opportunity to use different finishes in your plumbing, hardware, and lighting. A matte finish combined with a shiny one creates a great balance. Strive for a coordinated look rather than a matchy-matchy one and the end result will be far more interesting than selecting the same finish throughout.
