Design tips for decorating a gold style bathroom

Here’s how to achieve the gold aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a gold bathroom?

On one hand, bathrooms are undeniably practical spaces. They serve a very specific purpose and are often the smallest rooms in any home. On the other hand, bathrooms also double as havens for cleansing and self-care, an intimate escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Small room, big personality.

Designing a bathroom that's both functional and stylish involves combining practicality with aesthetic appeal. Whether you're in the process of a bathroom remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design**:

  • Tile: Tile is typically the first choice you’ll want to make when designing a bathroom. You may opt to tile the entire bathroom or just the floors in a powder room or backsplash for the shower or bathtub area. Select tiles that are durable, non-slip, and easy to clean. Tiles range in all different shapes, sizes, materials, and layouts. From penny rounds to large format floor tiles, zellige to subway tile, or checkerboard to herringbone, your choice of tile will set the tone for the whole bathroom. And don’t forget the grout! Your choice of grout color can completely change the way your tile looks in the space.
  • Paint or Wallpaper: If you don’t choose to tile your walls, you’ll want to select a paint or wallpaper that can withstand moisture and humidity. Vinyl wallpaper is best for this application. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Bathroom Vanity: The bathroom vanity should balance the style with functionality, offering adequate storage and countertop space. The vanity provides place to wash hands or brush teeth, and storage for toiletries and personal care items. It’s common for modern bathrooms to include a vanity with a double sink. Sink options include under-mount, vessel, and pedestal sinks and range in materials from porcelain, stone, or glass.
  • Mirror or Medicine Cabinet: Choose a mirror or medicine cabinet that complements the vanity in size and style. Consider a framed mirror that matches the bathroom’s design style, or a frameless mirror for a sleek, more modern look.
  • Toilet & Sink: The modern standard for toilets and sinks is white porcelain. But if you really want to make a statement, consider going with a color! Colored fixtures are having a comeback moment or you can source a vintage option.
  • Shower or Bathtub (for full baths): Depending on the size and layout of the bathroom, you may opt for a shower or bathtub (or a bathtub with shower combination). A shower will consist of a showerhead, faucet controls, and a shower enclosure (shower curtain or glass door), while a bathtub provides a space for soaking and relaxation. If you have the space, you may opt for a separate shower and a freestanding clawfoot tub.
  • Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood. Sconces are popular options for vanity areas.
  • Faucets: Faucets are an opportunity to add a decorative touch. Select finishes that match other metal elements in the bathroom, such as cabinet hardware or lighting fixtures. Consider water-saving models for environmental sustainability.
  • ** Bathroom Decor**: From bath mats and shower curtains to soap dishes, toothbrush and toilet paper holders, bath accessories should be both functional and decorative. Coordinate the color and pattern with the overall color scheme and style to bring your design vision to life.

How do you decorate with gold?

Gold is a symbol of luxury and warmth and can add a sense of opulence and refined glamor to any bathroom. You’ll find gold elements across all design styles. Gold typically takes center stage in art deco and glam spaces. Here’s how to tastefully incorporate this radiant hue into your decor, ensuring your interiors dazzle.

Gold comes in various shades, from soft, champagne golds to rich, deep bronzes. Lighter golds can add a subtle shimmer and enhance the lightness of a room, while darker golds lend a more pronounced sense of luxury and depth.

Gold makes a significant impact even in small doses. Use gold accents like picture frames, light fixtures, decorative objects, or hardware to inject a luxurious feel into the room without overwhelming. Brass is the most traditional gold metal to use in interior design. Lacquered brass will stay bright and shiny, while unlacquered brass will patina and dull over time, and brushed brass will maintain its matte appearance. A matte gold finish can offer sophistication and subtlety, while a polished, shiny gold reflects light and adds drama.

Gold pairs beautifully with a wide range of colors. For a classic and elegant look, combine gold with dark hues like navy or black. For a softer, more romantic vibe, pair gold with pastel shades like blush pink or soft lavender. To keep the design from feeling too ostentatious, balance gold elements with neutral tones like white, cream, or soft gray. Don't shy away from mixing gold with other metals. A combination of gold, silver, and bronze can create a rich, layered look that adds depth and interest to your decor.

Gold accents in wallpaper or patterned decor can add an element of luxury without the need for actual gold objects. Look for wallpapers with gold veins or patterns that incorporate gold tones.
