Mismatching Lighting Fixture Finishes

It can be hard to find lighting fixtures in San Jose that match and accentuate the style of your home. Many homeowners wonder if it's important to buy lighting fixtures with similar or complimentary finishes. For tips on buying attractive home lighting, watch this video clip.

The house counselors at HGTV recommend sticking to two types of finishes in a given space. Brass usually pairs well with oil-rubbed bronze. Nickel also looks good with oil-rubbed bronze. Chrome and brass are attractive and especially common in Europe. When you have three different finishes, however, the house can begin to look crowded. If you want to implement several different types of light fixtures while maintaining a cohesive look, buy them in the same finish. Keeping the door hardware consistent throughout the house is another great way to keep the design cohesive.
