There’s a reason the copper trend isn’t going away any time soon.
While some sleek metals conjure up an image of ultra-modern industrial kitchens that can feel too minimalist for some, copper’s autumnal hue is a lot more warm and comforting. At the same time, its metallic glow offers a touch of luxury with a contemporary twist.
This makes copper the perfect combination of cosy and chic, so it’s no wonder the interior design community seems to have fallen so in love with this precious metal.
What’s more, this combination of modern and classic influences mean copper suits a huge variety of decor themes, so whatever your kitchen style, there’s a way to incorporate this ongoing trend into your home.
Keep it classic
Copper accessories are the perfect way to bring a traditional kitchen up to date without losing the feel of timeless sophistication. Match smaller details, like copper-effect kettles or copper-backed chairs, with dark wooden floors and worktops, fresh white kitchen cabinets and an antique rug for a vintage-inspired look that’s sure to make a statement.
Create contrast by adding copper handles to darker coloured cabinets, like the bold grey hues of the Newbury Grey kitchen. This works particularly well when combined with another of 2017’s biggest homeware trends - marble-effect worktops. Together, these complementary materials create a truly premium look that will stand the test of time.
If the rustic charm of a shaker kitchen is more your style, you can still embrace the copper trend by including subtle hints of warm copper into your design. Why not hang copper saucepans over a range cooker for a farmhouse kitchen feel or decorate windowsills with house plants in copper-dipped pots?
At the other end of the style spectrum, copper is equally at home in a minimalist modern kitchen. Add copper highlights, like geometric art prints or statement ceiling lamps, to glossy white kitchen cabinets and sleek black laminate worktops for the ultimate lesson in Scandinavian chic.
