There’s something oddly luxurious and elegant about gold – particularly when furniture is involved. It doesn’t matter if you just use golden-painted furniture instead of actual gold furniture (no one is that rich). It just matters that you make the right choices so that you can turn your home into a glamorous den.
Gold finishes are trending right now – and it is safe to assume that this trend is here to stay. So, what are some inexpensive methods for using gold finishes for your home without actually blowing a hole through your bank account? Can you make your home look “golden” and luxurious while still remaining on the limits of the average budget? Turns out, you can – if you follow the right tricks. Here is how you do so.
• Gold Chandelier
Chandeliers are the first thing that people see when they enter a room. It is an item that brings shine and class into a room – making the rest of the furniture pop out. Ideally, you should pick one that has a golden frame – but that has more glass than it does metal. This will give the room a feeling that is packed with elegance.
• Gold Furniture and Painting
As mentioned, gold is trending in – which means that gold-colored furniture is very hot right now. Look in any furniture or decoration shop right now; you are bound to see something gold. The secret is to balance the colors without it being too tacky.
For instance, let’s say that your room mostly consists of white furniture; you can make the elegance pop out by adding some gold stools or gold throw pillows. The right amount of gold will add the glamour that you have been looking for in your home.
• Golden Table
An average table: boring. The average table that has been painted or given gold accents: glamorous. If you pair it with the right centerpiece, it will certainly look beautiful and elegant. Plus, you do not have to paint the entire table just to get that touch of elegance. You may paint its legs – or you may add a bowl filled with decorative golden balls on it. It will certainly give off a modern yet classy look.
• Golden Hardware
Tired of the traditional hardware on your furniture that bores you out of your mind? There are several ways to decorate with gold finishes if that is the case. To get the full effect, you might also want to paint the furniture white – as these two work best together. Once that is done, change the brass hardware, accessories and fixtures into something golden. Plus, if the shiny kind of gold seems like too much for you, then you may go for aged brass. That one may not be as flashy.
• Golden Frames
Have a few pictures that you may want to display? Why not use gold frames? These simple gold accents will add elegance to your wall – immediately making your home look even more expensive.
As you can see, gold has a way or turning a boring room into a luxurious, elegant one. Hopefully, you found our guide on how to use gold finishes to be inspiring.
