Know When to Use Gold Paint
By tastefully and artfully using gold-painted accents, accessories, and fixtures, you can get a head start on the completely regal look.

This will give the entire room a gilded room. Especially if your room is a lighter shade of color.
Golden paint is one of those things that only exist in extremes, however. It is either extremely tacky or extremely distinguished. There can’t be any middle ground with it. So try to be subtle with its use and not go for something like a gold-plated toilet.
