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.

|Dune tiles – going bold with gold|
Dune Damasco in a gold finish add a lustrous feel to a bathroom, in this instance enhanced with a gold sit-on basin and gold mosaics in the shower.
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 – 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.
