Should all fixtures match in a kitchen?

12 years ago

The custom cabinet guys come Monday to go over things with me, the electrician comes this Saturday, so I need to start ordering my light fixtures for the kitchen and utility room...and the dining room, and the sitting area. lol. But let's do the kitchen first.

I'll be using ORB for the hardware on the cabs and drawers, and ORB on the kitchen faucet.

A built in hutch will have green depression glass knobs and pulls.

I really don't want ORB for the finish for the overhead lights which will have the "school house" shades with a red stripe. I love the nickel finish because it looks more authentic than ORB.

Can I go with a nickel finish for the overhead lights even though most of the kitchen will have the ORB? One light will be above the kitchen sink, the other in the middle of the room.
