You’ve seen all kinds of home décor ideas and tried a few of them yourself. Now, it’s time to actually add some shine to your home. Say hello to metallic chrome! Now, you might think that adding chrome to your home is crazy or that you’re going a bit overboard. But if you know how to balance the look with the other elements in your home, you will end up with a sleek effect, not to mention a very chic living space to call your own.
Here are four ways in which you can shimmer up your home without going overboard.
When you want to use metallic colors for your home, it’s essential to pair it with darker colors so that it doesn’t end up looking too chaotic. For a hint of sophistication, choose colors like black, navy, and shades of brown to balance the boldness of chrome. Pair it with blue, green, and shades of greys and whites to give your home an elegant feel.
2. Mix ‘N’ Match
You can also try mixing different metals like polished brass with nickel, for instance, adding weight to the design. But if that seems too loud for you, you can always play with textures of the same metallic color. Have different articles with different textures and finishes of golden colored metal like polished brass, gold leaf, brushed brass and more. You can also mix chrome with other silver metals like satin nickel or brushed nickel.
3. Dazzling Walls
Another décor idea that is gaining popularity is having a chrome or metallic wall. You can add a 3D chrome or metallic wall panel in your bathroom to jazz up things in this often ignored room. Or, instead of having a wall panel, you can hang up a large chrome or metallic canvas to give the illusion of a wall. Make sure the color of the fixtures in the bathroom match the color of the wall panel or the canvas you select.
4. Shiny Furniture And Accessories
If a chrome or metallic wall seems too much for you, add it to your furniture. You can have chrome or metallic legs for table and chairs. You can also have a floor lamp in those colors. Experiment with statement accessories like vases and statuettes. Hang up some art pieces or a mirror in chrome or metallic frames.
Although it seems like a bold idea to add some glitter to your home, there’s nothing like a dash of chrome and metallic to make your space glamorous. So, don’t shy away from these colors and shine bright like a diamond! We mean, like chrome and metallic!
