Mixing and matching cabinet handles and knobs are in trend. Applying metallic tones with similar shades can add visual interest and depth to any home. A good rule of thumb is limiting yourself to mixing two to three different metal finishes. To get you started, install classic oil-rubbed bronze fixtures with warm champagne bronze hardware to combine modern and classic finishes. To simply freshen up the hardware of your kitchen, try using one look for the upper cabinets and another style for lower cabinets. Mix and match different style drawer pulls for a bold or decorative space.
Weathered finishes are primarily used for rustic and farmhouse styles. It gives a warm and charming feel to kitchens or living space designs. Weathered hardware includes brushed nickel, brass, and bronze. For this style, think rustic and raw interior design materials. Pair with surfaces that include wood-like tiles, two-toned cabinetry or distressed kitchen bar stools. Pair bronze or oil rubbed handles with shaker cabinets for a beautiful farmhouse design.

What's great about this color is how well it pairs with contemporary styles and modern designs.
