34 Stylish Ways To Mix Metals In Your Decor
Having matchy-matchy everything isn’t on trend! Forget this old decor idea and stick to mixing and matching tiles, wallpaper, shades and of course metals. Such an approach allows making renovations more often and without much pain and to easily integrate new pieces that you like into an existing interior. Let’s find out how to mix and match various metals with style and get an edgy interior.
Choose A Dominant Metal
While planning your decor, choose the metal you want to dominate here, it can be copper for a soft touch, or brass for a classic look, maybe chrome for a clean modern look. This metal will be the main one in the space, and you should rock most of metallic details with this finish, they will create the base. Other touches may include other finishes and shades of metal but keep most of them in the dominating metal still, and try not to mix lots of them – 2 or 3 are enough for an elegant look.

Match The Finishes
To make different metals look fine together, you need the same finish to unify the look. You can go for a polished finish for a shiny touch, or just satin finish that will make the fixture blend with the rest of decor rather than stand out. The type of finish you choose should fit the style you’ve chosen and the effect you want to achieve: for a trendy and bold look polished finishes work well, and for a mid-century modern and contemporary feel satin finishes work best. There’s also oil finish, which brings a touch of antique to the space, and it’s great for vintage and refined interiors.

Highlight The Statement Piece

Don’t Stick To The Same Color Family
Just because you’re mixing metals, that doesn’t mean they have to be entirely different from each other: there’s beauty in cohesion, too, so you can absolutely mix a combination of either cool tones or warm, still you don’t have to if you don’t want it. But watch out for having them all the same exact color, with only the finishes being different.
