1. Choose rose gold kitchen appliances

A very easy way to add a touch of rose gold to your kitchen is by replacing your appliances. We're talking kettles, toasters, stand mixers, coffee machines, pick any appliance, because you can guarantee it comes in rose gold. 

We love Dualit (opens in new tab)toasters in every colour, but this coppery rose gold one is even more stylish. It instantly adds a touch of glamour to any space and will make your kitchen pop (in the best sense of the word). Add to the look by picking out a rose gold kettle (opens in new tab) to match. 

2. Upgrade to rose gold cutlery

Rose gold cutlery seems a little extravagant, but it's very tasteful, and you can find reasonably priced sets which are guaranteed to add heaps of glamour to dinner time. This gorgeous set is from West Elm (opens in new tab) and is £34 for a five-piece set. If you're looking for something that may not last forever, but that is more budget-friendly, Amazon (opens in new tab) has a 30 piece set for just £23.79. 

3. Rose gold plates? If you insist

Oh these are special plates. These are the 'put them on the shelf plates' for all to see (but not often use) plates. The pink and gold together create a rose gold effect that's slightly more elegant than the metallic pink you often see. This collection is from Anthropologie (opens in new tab) and prices start from £14 for the plates so treat yourself and see  how popping some lovely plates on display can really lift a kitchen. 

4. Switch to rose gold kitchen handles 

If you're looking for more a project, then replacing your kitchen door knobs and cupboard handles can make the world of difference, but take minimal effort. Rose gold and copper will work with pretty much any colour of kitchen cabinets, although we do love to pair it with dark blue. Hey, you could always paint your kitchen cabinets too for a proper new look. 

5. Get organised with rose gold kitchen storage
