Yes, gold fixtures in the bathroom have come back in style. Don’t worry, they aren’t the same gold as in your grandparents’ homes. Gold fixtures have come a long way for the better. You can now decide between champagne bronze, brushed gold, polished brass and so many more.
There are a few tips and tricks you should know when adding gold to your bathroom, though. Firstly, not all golds are the same. Differences in golds between manufactures can vastly differ even if they are the same type of gold: i.e., brushed, champagne, etc. We suggest utilizing the same manufacturer for all your gold fixtures if possible or mixing metals.
The second thing to know is how to clean your gold fixtures. The easiest way to keep your fixtures looking great is by wiping off any water after use. Faucets especially are known to get water spots if you do not wipe them down after each use. You can use a soft, damp cloth and a small amount of a mild soap for a deeper clean. We always recommend checking the manufacturer’s care instructions before using any harsh chemicals or rough cloths on any finish.
The third and final thing to know is whether it will be in-style in 10-15 years. This one is harder to answer to predict. The fashion cycles are so quick with new products and finishes coming out every year. This can make it almost impossible to keep a bathroom up to date with the latest style. The only thing that will not go out of style is a good, well-thought-out design. Decide on a bathroom style that will be suitable for your needs and let us come up with a design that will stand the fashion cycles.
