Oil rubbed bronze hardware and fixtures
November 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi All,
We are renovating a prewar apartment and like the look of ORB hardware and fixtures, and I have a few questions. The colors are generally creams with some gold, beige, etc. (we are using Calcutta and some Carrera). My mother expressed concern that the door hinges, which do not get rubbed, will remain too black and stand out. Any thoughts? Also, the kitchen sink is brushed nickel. Can we do ORB cabinet pulls with this or should we go all nickel in the kitchen? Any other insights on ORB would be appreciated. I love it but do not have experience with it. Thank you.

I would recommend that you look at more kitchens on Houzz, to get an idea of how the various options look in real life.

The only ORB hardware in my house are the new front door entry levers I put in recently. Love them. And I haven't looked at my hinges to see if they match. However, I think you're talking about kitchen cabinets.

Thanks. I was talking about the hinges throughout the apartment. The kitchen is a separate area (not open). So my questions are, 1) will the dark hinges in hallways and bedrooms standout too much, and 2) are ORB fixtures ok with a nickel sink in kitchen?

I have rubbed oil bronze handles and just had to look to see if the hinged are black because I honestly couldn't remember. Surprise, they are, and they don't stick out or look out of place at all. Our doors and baseboards are cloud white and our walls are a medium gold/beige.
