Kitchen splashbacks with a touch of gold

Humans have been obsessed with gold for thousands of years. If you ask anyone to name a precious metal, gold is the most likely response. We have made jewellery out of it, used it as a form of currency, used ultra-thin slivers of it to coat ornaments and statues and even developed an edible variety of gold leaf to adorn our food.

But why are we so fascinated by this metal? How do we describe it? Well, even describing its colour is difficult. Is gold on the yellowish side, or is it just gold? In short, gold is gold and nothing else can compare. Chemically, it is uninteresting, it barely reacts with any other element. Yet, of all the one hundred and eighteen elements in the periodic table, gold is the one we have always wanted to choose to use as currency or to demonstrate wealth or luxury.

We have used gold as a makeup ingredient for centuries, with the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt making judicious use of this wonderful precious metal.

The mask of King Tutankhamun is perhaps the most famous gold artefact in existence today. A gorgeous gold mask of the 18th-dynasty ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who reigned from 1334-1325 BC. It was discovered by Howard Carter in 1925 in tomb KV62 in the Valley of the Kings, and is now housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The death mask is one of the best-known works of art in the world and a prominent symbol of ancient Egypt.

Bearing the likeness of Osiris, the Egyptian god of the afterlife, it is 1.8 ft tall, weighs over 22 lb, and is decorated with semi-precious stones. An ancient spell from the Book of the Dead is inscribed in hieroglyphs on the mask's shoulders.

Gold: expensive, luxurious and attractive

Platinum, gold and silver are the three main precious metals that are used to demonstrate wealth and quality, but how many times have you heard someone say that something of high quality carries the silver or platinum standard? It's always gold!

Gold is pretty rare

When one considers the amount of jewellery worn by millions of people, it may be very surprising to realise that the total amount of gold in the world, at least the amount known to be above ground, could fit into a cube with sides of just sixty seven feet.

The very latest figures for all the gold in the world is 171,300 tonnes. This may seem like a lot, but when you consider the cube analogy, it demonstrates just how rare this beautiful and sought after metal really is.

Gold signals longevity

Gold's relative inertness means you can create beautiful artefacts, safe in the knowledge that in a thousand or so years it will still be in pristine condition.

Gold toughened glass splashbacks

We already view gold as a thing of beauty, so why not combine that beauty with a glorious toughened glass splashback to brighten up your kitchen?

The shimmer of the glass can be enough to liven up your senses, but when gold is added, the beauty is truly something to behold.

A solid gold coloured glass kitchen splashback can look absolutely stunning in the right setting, but the mottled effect of a gold leaf design, or even hints of gold incorporated into a printed splashback design could look even better.

Using gold in the home

Gold has a very pronounced and eye-catching colour. So it is little wonder that the gold colour palette is so often used in home interior design projects. One small caveat though, although gold offers a very elegant look and makes the interior of your home look unique, too much of it can be somewhat overwhelming. That's why gold decor and accessories mixed and matched with other colours and elements are so attractive. Gold is a major characteristic in Art Deco styles and harks back to a more opulent time.

Lighting can make or break gold in a splashback

Many people consider lamps, up lights and downlights as just a practical means of illuminating what they want to see. But these light sources can make all the difference when a gold colour or design is being used in a glass splashback. In such cases, the gold shimmer from a toughened glass kitchen splashback can become the main decorative element of the entire room.

Gold under illumination not only lights up the room, but also reflect the light in an incredible way, making the room seem far more spacious. So a gold coloured splashback, or one with some gold incorporated, is a perfect solution for the smaller kitchens.

Break up the gold for a unique look in your kitchen

As already stated, a solid gold colour can be good in small doses, but be quite overwhelming if too much is used. Clearly, an entire wall run of glass splashback in solid gold may look a little too much, but having gold elements within the design itself can look truly amazing.

Not all solid colours necessarily look bad, a solid glossy black for example can look beautiful in a glass splashback, but introduce gold flecks, streaks or a gold border and you really are into something special.

Even gold coloured accessories such as taps, cooker controls, light switches and even the metal sink plug can all lend an opulent feel to the overall kitchen design.

Layer the gold for an extra special glass splashback

Having a layered design incorporated into your new toughened glass kitchen splashback can also be a good idea. A layered approach prevents the overwhelming solid gold colour, leaving you with subtle changes in gold tones and shades, making the splashback look even more interesting.

A gold foil appearance can also take you away from a solid gold colour, by offering a delightfully crumpled golden shimmer that will reflect light in some amazing ways.

Printed glass splashbacks with something as simple as stacked gold bullion can also look less stark, as the gold bricks are angles and you will see the shadows of the stack showing through, making the image all the more interesting.

So if you would like to explore the possibilities of how you could incorporate gold into a new glass kitchen splashback, why not give us a call today?
