3 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Finish
Posted on August 13 2016
Have you ever had that moment where you find yourself sitting in your favorite room trying to decide what color of metal element you'd like to incorporate and how? We know that might be a deciding factor for purchasing a Fusion Gate, so, we've put together some great tips we think will help you decide. Read through them and let us know what you think.
1. What finish does your current hardware have?
If your current hardware is in satin nickel, silver or black, making this decision may be easy for you. Your Fusion Gate can be easily matched to your current hard and will fit harmoniously alongside your current decor. However, if you have another finish, such as gold, bronze or stainless, or, if you are hoping to use your Fusion Gate as an accent piece, there are a few additional things to consider.
2. Are there silver or black accents throughout your space?
So, maybe you have a different finish in your home or are hoping to mix a black gate with satin nickel hardware? No worries! This can be done simply by adding a few additional accents to the room. If you are bringing a satin nickel gate into a space filled with gold, black or bronze hardware, add a few satin nickel or silver picture frames or candle sticks to other corners of the space. Black does have an advantage, because as we already know - it's everyone's favorite neutral. However, if you choose to bring in a black gate, make sure there are dark hues throughout, so it will complement your space.
3. What is your current color scheme? Neutral, warm, cool or vibrantly mixed?
Satin nickel fits in perfectly with rooms of gray-shakes, looks great up against dark and dreamy hues such as navy and black and provides the perfect accent to rooms full of bright colors. Black, on the other hand, functions as a neutral and will stand strong amidst any lighter color palette.
