Kitchen color inspiration: Gold (Polished Brass)


Think about what kind of tone you would like to evoke. Is it rustic? Vintage? Modern? What about luxurious? If you’re looking to add a glam factor to the heart of your home, turn to gold. This bold, elegant tone can dress up your kitchen. Here are a few ways to incorporate the hue into your kitchen:

Install brass kitchen faucets

Instead of stainless steel or nickel faucets, consider brass faucets! A polished brass fixture would look stunning with a white farmhouse sink to produce a perfect mix of elegant and rustic styles. Brass is very easy to clean, is durable, and can be matched effortlessly with other kitchen accessories. Pair the faucet with simple tones, like a white sink and black countertops, for a sophisticated look.

Add a backsplash

Complement your brass faucets with a decorative gold backsplash. The shimmering tiles provide a beautiful focal point for your kitchen and can help brighten up the area. You can opt for a matte gold backsplash if you’re after a more antique or vintage feel, or you could choose glossy gold tiles for a modern style.

Use gold dinnerware

Make your dinner table the center of attention by dressing it up with gold dinnerware. Help your plates and bowls stand out by lining your table with a white table runner. If you don’t want a lot of gold in your table settings, you can look for white plates that have only a touch of shimmering gold around the rims.

Swap out cabinet hardware

Gold cabinet handles and drawer pulls look beautiful contrasted against cabinets, whether your cabinets are black, white or a bold color. Installing gold hardware on your cabinets is a simple way to make a big statement.
