Should hardware and fixtures match?

13 years ago

I will be starting with a totally new hardware palate - will be getting new:

cabinet hardware

chandelier over table

pendant lights over island


Should they match?

I have black accents in my kitchen that will stay (primarily black and wood stain chairs) and others yet to be purchased (small black wrought iron wine rack and black bar stools) so I was planning oil rubbed bronze as another dark accent to add in, but am rethinking it, especially hearing we may be at the tail end of the ORB trend, and while I like it, I have no particuliar fondness for it over other choices.

I am also planning on the Costco instant hot/cold filtered water dispenser which comes only in chrome or satin nickel.

And my sink will be an apron sink in stainless steel - so I am leaning toward chrome faucets, but does that lock me into chrome for cabinet hardware and lighting?
