Lighting/Hardware Questions

renosigh's picture

Hi, I'm in the middle of a reno and am having some trouble making decisions (amazing, I know). I have an open concept main floor with an open window (at the top) wall dividing the dining room and kitchen. My problem is coordinating the lighting and then whether I have to coordinate the cupboard hardware with the lighting finishes?? Currently, of course, it's all brass, and am thinking of going to oiled bronze. Do the light finishes have to match the cupboard hardware? And, if you stick with the same finish on the lighting, do the actual lights have to match? As in from the same collection??
