Nothing says ‘luxury’ quite like gold. Using gold in your decor can add an unparalleled element of elegance and sophistication to any room in your home. Whether you prefer bold, statement pieces or understated accents, we have plenty of gold bathroom ideas for you.
Aren't Gold Bathrooms Gaudy?
Gold is incredibly versatile and can be used in so many ways in your interior design. But, it’s all about balance. Finding just the right balance can add a regal air to your bathroom.
Too many gold elements can toe the line of gaudiness, or tip you over - which is fine if that’s the look you’re going for. But a gold bathroom doesn’t have to be a gaudy one.
If you’re aiming for a classic, chic bathroom, the trick is to find just the right amount. By this, we mean opting for gold bathroom accessories to act as accents, dotted about the room. Or, choose a bold gold bathroom mirror or sink to act as a centrepiece.
Pairing gold bathroom taps with bold coloured walls and patterned floor tiles can give a funky, Bohemian effect. In contrast, pairing a bold statement piece with a crisp, white room will have a striking appearance.
Make a Statement With Your Gold Bathroom Sink
Countertop sinks add a point of interest to any bathroom, so why not kick it up a notch and opt for a gold sink? Gold bathroom basins are the perfect way to create a striking focal point in your bathroom, with minimum effort.
This Mexen Countertop Antique Gold Basin effortlessly adds interest and luxury to any bathroom. One can add texture and character to an otherwise plain bathroom with this chic, hammered gold effect counter top basic.
This contemporary Mexen Countertop Gold Basin is another option. This beautifully sleek and stylish basin is the perfect stand-out feature for your bathroom counter top.
When opting for a striking, statement sink, we recommend keeping the rest of the bathroom rather understated. This allows your new gold bathroom basin to pop against an otherwise subtle background.
Not That Brave?
If you prefer a more subtle look, perhaps gold bathroom accessories are a better option for you. Opting for subtle gold taps or a gold bathroom mirror can be an excellent, subtle way of adding a touch of luxury.
Pairing gold accessories like fittings and pipes with natural, woody textures, muted tones and crisp, herringbone tiles can give a polished Scandinavian vibe. Or, give your washroom a luxurious, spa feel by pairing gold bathroom accessories with marble counter tops and neutral-toned walls.

White and Gold Bathrooms
Pairing white and gold is a classic, timeless way of decorating any room. White and gold offer a clean, crisp feel that will give an air of luxury.
The key to pulling off a white and gold washroom is finding the right tones. As we all know, there are thousands of shades of white -- warm-toned, white, brilliant white, cream / off-white, etc. Similarly, there are different shades of gold. There are red golds, muted whiter golds, and rose golds.
The key is finding the right tones and being consistent with them. If you’re pairing off-white or cream with a muted white gold, you need to make sure you stick to these tones throughout the room. This will give a cohesive and polished look to the room. Similarly, brilliant white and rose gold work beautifully together - you just need to make sure you stick with the same rose gold-tone throughout.
Pairing white and gold not only adds a touch of class to your powder room but can also brighten the room. Choosing a white and gold combination is perfect for large, spacious rooms as it adds a hint of warmth to them. But if you have a smaller room, don’t worry, this isn’t off-limits to you. White and gold can add light and space to a smaller room by brightening it up.
Gold bathroom accessories and fittings are a wonderful way of alleviating your washroom to new luxurious heights. Gold is extremely versatile, and you can use it to create the Boho, vintage, modern, or Scandinavian-inspired powder room of your dreams.
When using gold, the key things to remember are finding the right tones, and sticking to them, and finding balance.
