Gold accents in the bathroom

Posted on January 22 2013, Bathroom Planning

While chrome has been leading the way in bathrooms for many years now, gold is starting to make a strong return.  Gold is a softer shade than chrome and adds a hint of luxury to your bathroom.  Using warm shades and colours will add warmth to any room, always useful in a north or east facing room.

Mimi by Gessi

The Mimi range from Gessi is a soft feminine range which is available in a number of finishes, including this lustrous gold which adds luxurious glamour to a bathroom.

The Gessi Mimi range comes with a full range of accessories so you can add accents to your bathroom.

Axor Montreux range of bath and basin taps, mixers and showers

Axor Montreux from Hansgrohe is a traditional range of taps and showers that complements a roll top bath and traditional style sanitarware.  Using gold taps and bath or shower mixers adds a shimmer of gold into an otherwise neutral room.

Dune tiles – going bold with gold

Burgbad Gloria

Burgbad Gloria is as glorious as the name.  Delicate hand painted gold accentuates the features of this wooden bathroom furniture that is hand-made.

Burgbad Diva

Burgbad Diva – as gold and chrome happily co-exist together the Diva adds vintage Hollywood glamour and contemporary elegance to your bathroom.  There are dressing tables, stools and cabinets in the range if you have a dressing room – or a large enough bathroom.

If using gold tiles or furniture is a step too far for you but you still want to add gold accents to your bathroom why not consider accessories, or towels with a hint of gold in a subtle pattern.  If you have enough room for a chair in your bathroom –  just add a gold coloured cushion.   If you are on a strict budget or just want a quick update without changing anything major in your bathroom don’t forget your local antique shop, auction house or charity shop where you can search for a plate, ornament or vase that just completes the look you are wanting to achieve.  These little finishing touches combined with gold brassware will add a lustre and warmth to your bathroom which will fill you with happiness every time you use it.
