Just in time for the holiday season, it’s possible to enjoy champagne every day!
Appliances and kitchen and bath fixtures are moving toward softer finishes – in particular, a champagne, or soft bronze, finish. A mix of silver, bronze and rose gold, this latest trend in finishes pairs easily with almost any design aesthetic – bringing warmth and subtle color to spaces to create a look that is distinctive, yet not too bold…and a refreshing departure from stainless steel and matte black.
First seen in kitchen appliances, champagne is also gaining traction in bathrooms where it can be found on fixtures, heated towel racks and even drains. Its understated golden tones aren’t as overpowering as chrome and bring a sense of elegance to the kitchen and bath.
Adding a heated towel rack in a soft champagne finish is an easy way to up the style (and comfort) factor in a bathroom space. Used in Europe for decades to keep towels fresh and warm, these stylish fixtures are also eco-friendly – using the same amount of electricity as just a few light bulbs. Amba Products offers a broad range of mounted and free-standing heated towel racks, all constructed of corrosion-resistant, high-grade stainless steel for sophisticated style and long-lasting durability.
Linear drains, which are particularly well-suited to transitional and more modern bathrooms, also look rich and inviting in a champagne finish. Not only are these clean-lined drains aesthetically appealing – creating a seamless, contemporary look – but they are also versatile since they can be located almost anywhere within the shower area. LUXE Linear Drains offers a full line of stainless steel linear drains and tile insert drains for residential applications, available in a variety of designs, sizes and finishes, including custom options.
Feeling a bit bolder? Consider adding a kitchen appliance such as a refrigerator or range in a champagne finish as a focal point in the kitchen. Elmira Stove Works offers its Northstar line of midcentury modern-inspired appliances in champagne, artfully merging vintage style with refined elegance. Northstar appliances include ranges, refrigerators, microwaves, wall ovens, range hoods and splash backs in a number of retro-inspired styles and colors. Smaller countertop appliances are also showing up in champagne, offering a more subtle way to incorporate the finish into kitchens.
As more homeowners seek to personalize their kitchen and baths spaces, opting for a champagne finish can transform an ordinary space into one that delivers unexpected beauty and statement-making style.
