Home Inspiration: Go For Gold

Jump on the Olympics bandwagon and try this gold medal winning idea! Swap your ordinary silver or white taps for shiny gold taps!

Not only do they look super chic, they’re also a  super budget-friendly way of getting a little bit of luxury in your life while you’re washing your hands or having a bath!

To ensure that the gold accents are the statement, contrast them against a room with a one or two toned colour  scheme – think shades of black, white or grey to make the taps stand out.

They are perfect for adding a little something to a plain bathroom, laundry or kitchen! You can also try matching gold shower heads or basins. Take inspiration from these photos that show why gold taps deserve first place!

    Not liking the gold, sorry, prefer the chrome. Gold is so over the top.

    I’m considering a bathroom update soon, but I don’t know that I’m convinced on this… stainless steel is probably going to be more timeless.

    Gold, copper and brass are so much warmer than chrome – very luxe! I’m tipping this wil take off…

  • Reply fluffyseana Friday 3rd August, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Looks nice in the photos but I think gold would date a bathroom very quickly.
