Remember when it was a total faux pas to mismatch your metals?


If you wore a gold necklace, everything needed to be gold. But that is no longer the case with jewelry – or bathroom fixtures!


Pedigo Construction is seeing a growing trend toward mixing the metals you use in your bathroom remodel, creating a look that is refined and uniquely yours. However, there are a few tricks to make sure your mix-matched metals look refined – not careless. Follow these guidelines for creating the perfect bathroom with metals of all types and finishes:


1.     Use 3 Metals Maximum

It’s great to see different metals – bronze, gold, stainless, etc. – all used in harmony, but don’t get carried away! Using more than 3 types of metal in your Plano bathroom remodel can make the bathroom feel disjointed and lacking in continuity.


2.     Pair by Finishes

If you love the look of polished stainless steel, then adding other polished finishes will compliment well. Or maybe try an oil rubbed bronze with brushed nickel. The subtle contrast will be easier on the eyes when the finishes are in unison.

3.     Apply the 2-to-1 Ratio Rule

Want an easy way to make sure the metals balance? Use one type of metal for two-thirds of the bathroom remodel, then use complimentary metals for the final third. This simple trick provides continuity without sacrificing style.


4.     Contrast Warm and Cool Hues

Spice up your bathroom by mixing cooler metals with those that have brighter, warmer undertones. This trick is especially useful in homes with a modern, more contemporary design style.
