    Exclamation Stainless Steel and Oil Rubbed Bronze

    So, I selected Oil-Rubbed bronze fixtures, hinges, faucets, etc. all around my brown vessel sink in my guest bathroom... Now I've realized that I have stainless steel appliances (which I purchased over a year ago because they were on sale and have stored them until now)... IS this a design NO-NO? I imagine it will look funny. My cabinets are antique white, and my knobs and pulls are also oil rubbed bronze.

    No, I just posted a question to be silly? I went through the pain of setting up an account to post a question just out of pure boredom to put a stupid question up in thread... OF COURSE I'M NOT KIDDING. I've seen some pics, and my contractor says he's done it in many a home... I'm thinking about just going with it. I'd change appliances before I'd change everything else.

    This is just my own personal opinion.
    Most people will say that stainless goes with anything but I disagree. In an industrial style design oil rubbed bronze and stainless is OK. In the picture you posted the choice was to go with "old word" or "antique" style and to me stainless does not fit. I would prefer paneled appliances that match the cabinetry.
