Meet warm metallics

First things first, you should take some time to get to know different metallics. This way, you’ll know what kind of look they would create in your home.

The warm-toned family of metallics includes some of the most elegant and popular options, such as gold, rose gold, brass, copper and bronze. Each of these finishes will fill your home with a specific ambience.

For instance, gold, a forever-popular option, is an emblem of traditional luxury and it’s a perfect choice for lush accent details due to its bright appeal. Rose gold and brass are subdued versions of gold that will enable you to create an opulent yet subtle look.

When it comes to copper and bronze, they are perhaps the warmest metals with orange undertones. They have a distinct rustic appeal, which is why they go perfectly with natural materials such as wood and stone.


Learn the rules

Although metallic finishes offer a world of inspiring design ideas, you should know how to properly implement them in your home. Learning some of the basic decorating rules for using metallics will not only enable you to create a glamorous home, but it will also help you accentuate these lush elements.


The first rule for decorating with metallics is to use them as accent details. Otherwise, you may create an overbearing, kitschy look that will be far from elegant and glamorous. Furthermore, keep in mind that metallics should be set against a subdued colour palette of warm hues. This will enable you to create a rich, opulent look in your home.


You should also keep in mind that glossy finishes reflect light, which can make your space seem bigger. However, don’t hesitate to use different textures, including matte, polished and hammered. Finally, you can always mix different metals for stunning visual appeal. In such a case, make sure to pick a dominant metallic finish for the best effect.


Glam Up The Kitchen

Warm metallics can truly transform your kitchen and give it a luxe flair. And there’s no better place to start than appliances. Since purchasing new appliances can be a bit expensive, especially if you pick a glamorous finish, you can simply make sure that your existing ones are functioning properly by hiring experienced professionals.


For instance, reliable Stove Doctor technicians can make sure that your current appliances are installed properly or fix any possible problems. Afterwards, you can style up your appliances by applying stick-on covers with a warm metallic finish.


You can also pair your stainless steel appliances with warm metallics by using them for other details. From luxurious pendants above the island to kitchen hardware, any metallic embellishment will look great against a backdrop of neutral or matte cabinets.


Give Your Bathroom A Shine

For a warm look in your bathroom, copper is the way to go. Since natural stone and wood are typically used in modern bathrooms, copper embellishments can give them an enticing rustic flair.


On the other hand, gold will give your bathroom all the glitz and glamour it needs. Either way, there are plenty of design opportunities. Ca wow effect by using a tile design with a metallic shimmer or simply use one of the warm metallics for faucets and lighting fixtures.


Make your living room sparkle

Your living room will allow you to mix different metallics and introduce all of their distinctive charms. For instance, you can use warm metallic colour fabrics for cosy throw pillows or create a stunning contrast by placing a metallic mirror frame on a dark wall. By using one of the warm metallics for decorative details, hardware, lighting fixtures and glamorous patterns, you’ll truly set the tone of elegance in your living room.

Design a luxurious bedroom

The right choice of metallics can give your bedroom a luxurious vibe with a touch of romance. However, make sure to create a subtle look by introducing just a few carefully picked metallic embellishments.


Whether it’s a set of gold lamps or lush curtains with a rose gold finish, warm metallics will create a regal ambience in your bedroom, enabling you to indulge in the touch of glamour.

Warm metallics will fill your home with warmth and elegance, creating a truly opulent look. By choosing your metals carefully and using them moderately, you’ll create a mesmerising effect.
