Gold Fixtures for the Win
Brushed gold fixtures can take your modern kitchen or bath into designer-level territory. Warmer than chrome, gold is both soft and classy. Though this metal has been trendy in recent years, it’s still a classic option with plenty of longevity.
Today’s brushed gold fixtures are a far cry from the dated brass hardware of the ‘80s. The latest versions will work alongside stainless or chrome, so you can pick and choose where to use them. Whether it’s for small accents or a more significant design statement, there are plenty of options available.
Bolden Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet
This commercial-style faucet is sure to be the centerpiece of any modern kitchen. The industrial design features an open-coil spout in brushed gold and a pull-down sprayer with an extended range of motion. The dual function spray head offers two different pressures for standard and more heavy-duty rinsing, while an easy retract hose makes it simple to fill pots and reach around the sink. The 18-inch height will fit under most kitchen cabinets. Available at The Home Depot.
GGStudy Widespread Bathroom Faucet
This brushed gold faucet offers a modern take on a more antique shape, perfect for those who love the farmhouse style. The deck-mounted three-hole design features a hot and cold handle, an aerated spout, and a matching pop-up drain. A ceramic valve helps to prevent leakage, while the brass body is both corrosion and rust-resistant. Available on Amazon.
Delta Shower Set
This set from Delta features brushed gold shower trim and a bath faucet spout perfect for any modern bathroom. The unusual two-in-one design hides a removable hand shower in the center of the main spray head. Two settings allow for a full-body spray or a fast massage option, and an included pressure-balanced valve cartridge helps ensure consistent water temperature. For those hoping to conserve water, a pause feature allows users to reduce the flow to a trickle while lathering. The company’s universal shower valve must be purchased separately to complete the unit. Available on Amazon.
Ramus Single Hole Bathroom Faucet
For shoppers looking for a brushed gold single-hole bath faucet, this modern version from Ramus is an excellent option.

The unit comes equipped with a lift rod drain and pre-attached water lines for easy installation. Available on Wayfair.
Moen Rainshower Showerhead
This brushed gold showerhead from Moen offers a bit of luxury to a modern bath design. A generous 8-inch design allows for exceptional coverage, and two spray modes let the user personalize their showering experience.

After showering, a rubber spray nozzle allows for easy cleaning. Available on Amazon.
Kamenstein Paper Towel Holder
For those who want to try brushed gold accents but are afraid of commitment, this paper towel holder might be the ideal place to start. Its best feature is the weighted base, which prevents it from tipping as you tear off a sheet of paper, while the padded anti-slip surface helps to keep it in place. The holder can accommodate large rolls with a nearly 8-inch diameter base. The rustproof stainless-steel construction protects against corrosion, while a matte brushed brass finish keeps it looking good. Available on Amazon.

Sand & Stable Vanity Light
Brushed gold finishes don’t have to be relegated to the sink; lighting fixtures are a great way to add a fun modern touch to your space. This 12-inch-long wall sconce would work perfectly beside a bathroom mirror or even as a decorative touch for your kitchen. Brushed gold and black, the modern fixture features a clear glass globe that hangs down from a metal arm and circular backplate. For those who enjoy low lighting, this sconce is dimmable.
