The gold kitchen decor trend is regularly approached tamely with small gold kitchen accessories, upgraded hardware, or maybe a gold kitchen appliance or two. However, if you really want this upmarket trend to ooze luxury and bold personality, you’ve got to go bigger. Gold kitchen cabinets can be used for an all-out Midas touch, or just a few accent units can achieve the required luxurious fullness of the aesthetic without becoming overpowering in the space. This collection of 51 gold kitchens, fabulous accessories, pendant lights and bar stools show just how to achieve the luxe metallic mood of the moment without appearing even a little bit gaudy.
A splash of gold, or rather a backsplash of gold, can be just enough to make your kitchen hit bang on trend. A gold backsplash can be retrofitted into an existing modern kitchen design and will look right at home when teamed with some upgraded gold kitchen hardware.

All around glamour. When going with a gold theme, that doesn’t mean that every other aspect of the palette has to pale in comparison. This adventurous design introduces jade green stonework, dominating pink elements, and a dazzling crystal chandelier into the mix.

Consider reflections. When working with metallics, it’s also necessary to consider what will be reflected in the finish. This gold kitchen island beautifully reflects a chevron floor treatment, which makes the floor expanse appear even larger. On the flip side, it would be undesirable to double up the presence of a trash can or flaw in the floor, so use reflective finishes wisely.
The ultimate glow up. Orange walls combined with gold kitchen cabinets make a warm meld that seems to glow.
