We’ve all seen the bathrooms of the rich and famous draped in gold. But too much of a gold thing can look garish and over the top, done right golden accents can transform your bathroom into a elegant and luxurious space that everyone will enjoy and envy.
So, for the those with the Midas Touch here are a few ideas on how to add dashes and splashes of gold for a sophisticated finish.
Golden Taps & Mixers
First of all the easiest way to add some golden charm to your bathroom is with the brassware. Either traditional and elegant or modern and chic, there are many brands that offer beautiful golden and rose gold finishes. These golden statement pieces are discreet and can complement other colours, particularly black, white or grey tones.

Gold Infused Basins
If you want to go further than you can pair your brassware with a wide selection of basins with decorative gold patterns or partially clad in gold. Adding a large golden statement piece like a basin will certainly make a dramatic impact in any bathroom so remember to try and offset that with other natural stone elements or even a bouquet of flowers to create a heavenly atmosphere.

If you want to go for an all out look or just add some finishing touches here and there, gold adorned furniture can be a great way to tie the whole room together. The only thing to be careful of is to be sure that the design of your furniture goes with the rest of the room so it doesn’t stand out but rather enhance the scheme. Ways to do this would be adding golden handles to dresser drawers, frames on mirrors or trim in the upholstery of chairs.

Golden tiles and mosaics
Tiles and mosaics are where you can really be creative with gold, playing with pattern, colour and textures to create subtle decorations or bold swathes. There are several areas in the bathroom which need to be protected by water, making gold perfect for splashbacks, countertops and of course ties. So, think carefully about where you want to make a statement with gold and how you can more delicately incorporate it into your decorative tiles schemes.
