Thinking of creating an elegant and opulent look in your kitchen with gold-toned accents which are currently enjoying a revival? Accessories and smaller items are a great way to enhance your cooking area without being overwhelming, and there are many different products available if you are thinking of adding a few gold kitchen touches.
Gold To The Touch
Updating the handles on your cabinets is a low-cost way to give the heart of your home an upgrade. Handles are an easy, low-risk option for introducing gold into your kitchen – if they work, additional items in the metallic shade could be introduced, but replacement handles are inexpensive if you decide they are not right.
At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, we sell a huge range of handles to perfectly complement your cabinets and kitchen, from modern Metropolis bow handles to more traditional oak knobs and ornate twister ‘D’ handles. Our antique brass effect knobs or Edison handles are perfect for achieving a subtle gold look, and our range of handles starts from as little as £2 each!
In this kitchen, brass handles add a luxurious feel to the grey cabinets and wooden worktop. Replicate a similar look to this by choosing our solid oak drawer and door frontals, painted in a colour such as Farrow & Ball’s Plummett, and our solid black American walnut worktops.
If gold handles alone are not enough, consider taking the metallic one step further with brass and gold-effect taps. Taps are often considered as a good pairing to handles, because together they add a touch of elegance without being prohibitively expensive. Gold can be used in a subtle way to lift a neutral kitchen and add eye-catching style – the kitchen shown is a fantastic example of this as the clean, fresh white used is punctuated by gold accents.
Gold On The Ceiling
Bathe your kitchen in a warming, summery glow with a gold ceiling pendant light, which will look fantastic on its own or as part of a gold colour scheme. Pendant lights can work especially well over an island if used as a statement piece. The kitchen shown here provides a great example of this, featuring our full stave prime oak worktops – the island is lit up by dramatic swirled lamps that are completely different to the spotlights used elsewhere.
Pot of Gold
Small accessories – like this cafetiere – will not only add a spark of gilded colour into your home, but they can be affordable enough to update when trends and styles change. In this respect, they could be the only thing you might ever need to change, provided your kitchen uses otherwise neutral tones. Despite its small size, the cafetiere adds a noticeable zip of colour and elegance, even in a small kitchen.
For an even more affordable way to introduce gold to your kitchen, choosing gold and brass-toned crockery and kitchenware is easily changeable when the time comes. You could opt for utensils, glasses, plates or a wide range of other products, which are all available in high-street stores.
These gold-coloured patterned kitchenware items, for example, will make every mealtime feel special with their elegant designs.
