Prior blogs have focused on how greens and blues are popular trends in kitchen design. With plenty of new colors and designs in natural and manufactured stones, there are many choices to make green and blue part of your new kitchen.

Another popular design trend for kitchens is gold. Gold can make a powerful statement or it can be used as an accent for an elegant look.

Here are four ways to include gold in your kitchen design. They run the gamut from making a bold statement to leveraging gold as an accent. We like all of them.

  1. Accent
    Incorporating gold cabinet hardware, faucets and/or light fixtures adds a touch of gold that is eye catching but not overwhelming. If you are looking for a quick update that will make your kitchen seem more on trend, consider gold accents as a simple, more cost-effective option.
  2. Backsplash
    A gold backsplash is a beautiful way to incorporate gold into your kitchen. Create the backsplash with gold panels, gold tiles, or a natural stone or quartz with vibrant gold tones. A gold backsplash can be the focal point of a kitchen design.
  3. Contrast
    Using gold as a contrast with another color is another way to incorporate gold into your kitchen. Think deep, rich marine blue cabinets with gold lighting and cabinet fixtures. You can add a gold backsplash here, too, or a beautiful natural stone countertop with flecks or veins of gold throughout.
  4. Bold
    If you love gold and want to go “all-in” on a bold kitchen, there are many ways you can achieve this look. Think about mixing textures and materials so that, although the main color is gold, there is variation to the eye that makes it interesting and beautiful. For example, gold chevron design floor tile with a reflective hammered gold island topped with a dark grey or black countertop with gold flecks or veining gives the kitchen a fabulous bold look with lots of interest and beautiful features.
