All that glitters is gold hardware as the modern kitchen takes it up a notch with this timeless shine.
For about a decade chrome and nickel had this market segment wrapped up. But the gold trend is growing in furniture and decor so rapidly that it has paved the way for the smaller details to flourish. Adding gold hardware to an all white kitchen adds a depth and character to the room.
The Jigsaw Designers like using a gold hardware against dark cabinets to really pop the gold. These black cabinets with gold pulls create a look that is rich and unique. Gold accessories also play well with grey tones in the kitchen or bath creating an elegant look with a touch of shine.
Don’t be held back by your stainless appliances either. Mixing metals is not just acceptable these days but encouraged. Stainless stoves next to white cabinets with gold hardware blend perfectly in the image below.
Try finding accessories with unique shapes to compliment your room but not distract. Knobs and pulls like these styles by Nanz have a retro vibe that work well in mid-century or modern homes. The wood mixed with brushed gold are simple and chic. We especially love the hipster “radio” pulls by Buster + Punch.
For the ultimate gold accessories there is nothing quite like the gold farmhouse sink by Rocky Mountain Hardware. This sink will set you back $15K, but nothing will top this in the “cool” category.
If you prefer something a bit more subtle the iron sink with gold trim might be just enough of the trend to enjoy.
Carrera marble baths have been on the rise, and while typically the hardware installed is chrome, we find mixing gold hardware a fresh and welcomed alternative. The gold piping, gold sink bowls and mirrors give this bath a lavish appearance that feels like a 5 star hotel.
Gold switch plates, hinges and vent covers in gold add the perfect finishing touches. The Jigsaw Designers like the vent covers (called registers) by rejuvenation to complete the look. This look works especially well in an older home or beach bungalow being updated. It’s all in the details…
