Ditch the Faux Crystal and Go for the Gold

When you’re looking for a quick, DIY method of updating your Duluth bathroom, start with the fixtures. It’s amazing how such a small change can add instant pizazz to the room. Remember, if you’re thinking of selling a home, bathrooms are second in importance only to kitchens.

The trend in bathrooms going into 2016 is gold, so ditch the faux crystal, stainless steel or silver fixtures and give your bathroom an air of sophistication. Think of the fixtures as jewelry for the bathroom.

Gold works in even the most rustic or minimalist bathroom, especially against a white backdrop, such as the sink, tub and even the wall in the case of a towel rack. Gold even works in a retro bathroom.

When choosing fixtures, consider which finish will complement the surrounding décor. Matte or shiny? Smooth satiny finish or textured?

Learn how to replace the faucets yourself online – it’s an easy an inexpensive DIY project. And, the payoff for such a small amount of elbow grease is that it helps boost the value of your home.

Home Depot (1101 Mall Drive in Duluth) carries a wide selection of gold faucets and other bathroom accessories and you might also try Ferguson on Airpark Blvd., Arrowhead Supply at 18 No. 19th Ave. W. or Menards in West Duluth.
