Brass hardware? Check. Gold faucet fixtures? You've seen them. And we all know that brass lighting is a hit. We love all these gold tones in a kitchen, but occasionally we see things so special and unique, we just want to bask in their glow and dream about them for our next remodel. Incorporate a little warmth and shine in your kitchen with one, or a few, of these elements.

This custom toe kick was made from sheet metal which was cut to fit and adhered to IKEA cabinets with contact cement. It adds a luxe element to an otherwise budget kitchen by NWHomeworks.

If you've got a little raised detail on your cabinet fronts, consider painting those parts with gold paint or gold leaf. This emerald kitchen is by Kelly Wearstler but you can DIY it yourself according to Addicted to Decorating.
