Gold Plated Fixtures

Aug 22, 2008
When you think of light switches, and taps maybe you do not think of gold but it is a highly decorative item in homes today. Gold plating can add to a room's décor. There are different styles of ceiling fans and recessed lighting that have all included gold plating for the accents. So why should a light switch be any different?

Many people have used the gold plated plumbing fixtures in their bathrooms. This style can include the shower bars, enclosures, faucets, and accessories for the bathroom all in one matching gold plated look. When you use the same style throughout the bathroom it pulls the look together instead of creating a haphazard look with too man different styles in one room.

Even the plumbing can be gold plated. If you are going for an elegant look and have a claw foot bathtub, the piping, instead of being concealed can stand out with the great look of gold plating. When this is matched with your shower riser in the same look you will have a really elegant looking bathroom.

Let us not forget the sink. When you decide to go with gold for your bathroom the look can be carried right to the sink by adding faucets with the look of gold. The accessories for the sink can match as well for the all around wonderful style that this adds to your bathroom.

When adding the gold touch to your bathroom do not forget the toilet and bidet. They can also have the look of gold by using the gold plated fixtures. This will add to the look you already have started. The best thing to do when adding it to all your bathroom fixtures make sure to get all the same color gold. There is also an antique gold plate that looks great. But you do not want to mix the two. This will subtract from the look you are trying to achieve rather than enhance it.

This is a good look for the kitchen as well and carries the look through to the two most essential areas of the home. Add the gold light switches to your kitchen lights. The faucets, pipes, and even lighting accessories can be much neater looking when they all match. This never goes out of style, because it has one of its own which is timeless.

The really wonderful thing that is going on with style for kitchens and bathrooms is the use of exposed pipes. These pipes used to be the parts that everyone wanted hidden but not anymore. They have become a style that is used in high end homes as well as the moderate income homes. Everyone wants the pipes exposed.

If you are thinking of building a new home or remodeling your existing one, you cannot go wrong with this style. If done correctly, making sure that all the accessories, switches, pipes, and anything else that you want to replace with the gold plated look, this can be one awesome look.
