The metallics trend is set to be a huge hit again  this autumn and winter, especially the warmer metal tones such as gold, brass and copper. If you would like to achieve this luxurious and decadent look in your bathroom we have a whole host of tips and tricks for you to follow. Whether you have a modern or a period property the warm metals trend can be easily incorporated into any bathroom for a simple way to update your home.

Gold Tiles


If you want to make real impact installing metallic tiles to your bathroom is a fantastic way to incorporate warm metals in an unexpected way. There are so many beautiful metallic tiles to choose from, the most trendy and popular options are mosaics, subway, herringbone and oversized. All these styles would be perfect for your bathroom walls or shower area. For a truly luxurious feel opt for shimmering gold mosaic tiles around your shower and bath, for a more vintage look why not choose rectangular subway tiles which will really bring in an art deco feel. If you prefer a more modern look square or rectangular oversized tiles with a metallic finish would work perfectly in a more contemporary space.


Bathroom Fittings

If you would like to introduce one stand out piece to your new metallic bathroom we would suggest installing a beautiful warm tones bath like the beaten copper model seen in our King’s Cross showroom. A piece like this combines the popular trend with classic styling. This ensures that the look stays grounded and fashionable for longer thanks to its traditional design. An impactful bath tub like this will never go out of style. If a bathtub is too much of an investment for you why not consider installing some metallic brassware like the taps in the image above? Gold taps are the perfect way to introduce the warm metallics trend to your bathroom with out investing a lot of money in larger pieces.

For an extra touch of luxury add a Midas touch to your bathroom by introducing gold fittings and accessories. If you don’t know where to start with the warm metals trend a great starting point is to introduce some simple accessories to your bathroom. Bathroom accessories are affordable and easy to find and they are always a great way to introduce a new trend without splashing too much cash. We recommend purchasing new toothbrush holders and other smaller storage items as well as a vase to house some beautiful neutral toned flowers. These items will all introduce the super fashionable gold trend in an easy and affordable way.

Wallpaper and soft furnishings

To really bring the warm metal look together in a cohesive way you can introduce some beautiful new soft furnishings such as towels, bathrobes and curtains to the room. To add even more impact you could also wallpaper the room in a pattern that features metallic detailing. To avoid going too over the top we suggest that any soft furnishings in the room remain a neutral colour. If you have a minimalistic or contemporary space we suggest cool toned neutrals like grey or white, however, if you prefer a classic or more traditional look you should opt for warmer creams and oatmeal colours instead, pure white and grey would look too harsh. The wallpaper choice is it is completely up to you and the style and pattern really depends on your personal style. Obviously if you have a period home you should probably opt for a more classic design, however if you prefer modern styles you could opt for geometric, animal patterns or striped wallpaper, the choice is really up to you.

Golden chair


If you have a larger bathroom or you’re looking to achieve that boutique hotel look you may want to consider introducing some beautiful furniture to your bathroom. The bathroom living or furniture trend is also absolutely huge this season and combining this style with warm metals will give you even more bang for your buck trend wise. As an example, the chair above has been made from a cool toned brass with a soft metallic cushion, making it a perfect option for a bathroom that already has hints of warm metallics. Other pieces of furniture you could bring into your bathroom include vanity units or cupboards, to bring in a touch of warm metallics why not swap the handles for ones made from gold, copper or brass to make any storage in your bathroom extra trendy.
