New finishes in metals are showing up in home decor.
New finishes in metals are showing up in home decor.
Metal fixtures are becoming available in softer finishes that have emerged as a design trend for kitchens and bathrooms, as well as door hardware.

In addition to looking sleek and contemporary, hardware in warmer metal tones is diverse enough to go with both modern and traditional decorating styles. Bathroom fixtures and door handles in burnished brass, soft gold and pewter are gaining steadily as favorites among homeowners.

Blinds Chalet has a line of metallic finish mini blinds that would complement this new trend in metals. They are available in a wide range of colors - brown gold, mercury silver, steel blue, umber bronze, brass ingot and silver beige - and are among the most affordable window treatments offered by the company. With discount coupons, homeowners can save 30 percent off the regular price.

Refinishing older furniture can also include a way to incorporate the new metals into a room.

"Mirror frames, old lamps and lighting fixtures painted with metallic paint will add a feeling of luxury and add contrast," according to Inland Home and Garden. "Furniture can be painted or stained as well. Consider new, brushed metal hardware to give it a modern feel."
