Jewel bathrooms. Gold is in fashion and incorporating it into bathroom decor is a good idea if you are looking for a bright and luxury touch. These bathrooms are pure inspiration. They will serve as a guide to see how the golden finish is used in its proper measure through details. With them you can update the bathroom image in a weekend or customize a basic reform.

Gold and white, the most popular
Undoubtedly the decoration of a bathroom with white wall tiles is the ideal base to incorporate gold and get it right. White is simple and neutral but also bright. The gold incorporates a metallic detail that also gives light. Although white does not need it, it is a bonus. And, above all, the power of gold used in details is to raise the level of space. So any neutral room becomes sophisticated.

Discreet but successful notes in gold
There are many ways to incorporate this trendy finish in the bathroom. The taps is one of the most common. But you can also do it with mirror moldings, screens, wall lights and smaller accessories such as towel racks or dispensers. The photographer Lisa Cohen portrays this bathroom in green and wood on the floor where it is the standing mirror and the wall light, in a gold finish, that break the predominant unity.

With more or less presence
The bathrooms decorated with a lot of gold lean towards a decorative style more of maximum, excessively ornate or with a tendency to exaggeration. Gold can be scary. But used in the right dose, it is a detail that illuminates and brings elegance. The photographer Greg Natale shows how in this bathroom it is the towel rails, the hinges of the shower screen, the taps and the ceiling light that dot the space, matching the veining of the cladding that precisely covers the ceiling.

A level bathroom with natural stones, black and gold accents
Photographer Christopher Dibble shows this bathroom in which black has a leading role. A color that used with measure in the bathroom is synonymous with elegance and modernity. In fact, black and gold (very discreet) converge in this decoration to raise the level of interior design. The shower area stands out, perfectly delimited by its location and an original folding door screen with black bar profiles. The taps are chosen in gold, combined with the structure that supports the marble top of the washbasin cabinet.

The shade of the gold finish
It can be bright and intense, the most daring. But the metallic gold finish also appears brushed, which gives it a matte, softer look and is perfect for modern-style bathrooms. In a more muted tone, the gold transforms into brass and has a more retro hue, which, depending on how it is combined, enhances the vintage trend or balances the predominant line. In this bathroom decorated by the Chango & Co. studio, it is the brass finish of the taps, wall lights and washbasin accessories that stands out on a marble base. The effect is sober on the whole.

A single bathroom with gold sinks
A gem sink. Or like in this bathroom, two. Gold does not have to predominate. A decorative effect that is played with in decoration is to choose a piece in a finish that totally differs from the rest, something that stands out so that it becomes a focal reference. In the bathroom, it can be done like here, bringing the gold finish to an element such as the sink. More marked, it could be done with a piece of furniture painted in this tone. Or a wall papered in gold. And do not incorporate anything else in this finish.

A simple decoration with “bright” brushstrokes
Savvy Interiors chooses the trend of decorating the bathroom only with lines and notes in gold. A neutral base on which the gold appears in the mirror trim, the taps and, in this case, in the profiles of the shower screen. The game is that all the metal elements of the bathroom fit into the same finish. It is not mandatory that this be the case, but it is recommended. What you should not do is mix stainless or chrome finish with gold. Do you want to reduce the luxury effect of the gold finish? Introduce wood. The dark ones are more elegant and classic. The clear and natural most Nordic and current.

Unity in materials
Dekton materials, used in this bathroom to cover walls and floors, have a luxurious ally to discreetly break the monochrome that has been sought: gold. Recessed taps in the wall in the shower area, ceiling shower head, support structure of the washbasin cabinet and the detail of the profile that finishes off the wall niche. This is framed by a golden line.

Gold on black
Although it is not the most common finish in the bathroom, black has its place in the most impressive interior designs. We refer to a predominant black finish on the coatings. Tiles on the wall or on the floor that stain everything with sobriety. Although it is usually a use more intended for commercial spaces or hotel and restaurant bathrooms, there are interior designers – here proposed by the Sube Interiorismo studio – who use the black and gold mix so as not to leave anyone indifferent. The result is elegant and the gold manages to illuminate.

White, gray and gold
Another family of shades that works in the bathroom is the one used here by the Abbey Collective interior design studio with styling by Alana Langan. A pair of gray, white and gold. If white and gray are basic and neutral colors that need customization; they are also a foolproof foundation. Here the floor has more intensity and it is the walls that play with white and a soft gray coating that provides texture and geometric lines. The white fittings and the main cabinet of the washbasin are defined by the golden lines that accompany the areas through the taps, handles and towel rails.
