Home décor using copper has been trending for a while now since 2012 and continues to become more popular by the day. Apart from great copper accents to add instant warmth and rustic glamour to a kitchen, there are inspiring ways in which you can incorporate copper into the actual design of a kitchen. Below are some interesting ideas for copper kitchen decor.
Wall or Splash Back
A copper wall in the kitchen is incredibly unique and can create a rustic yet modern focal point in a kitchen. If an entire wall is a little too much, copper splash backs above counter tops and behind cookers look delightful and are easy to keep clean and shiny.
Sink and Cooker Hood
For a farmhouse kitchen a copper sink and extractor hood provides a rustic cottage look that adds instant charm to a traditional kitchen.
Beautiful ornamental copper molds can be practical as well as decorative hanging from copper hooks, mounted on the wall, or stacked on the counter for a vintage look.
Copper contains natural anti-microbial properties that make them ideal for kitchen use and for soaking vegetables. The warm color of copper is so much more inviting than the cold glare of stainless steel and is much healthier.
Framed Interior Kitchen Door
An interior kitchen door that separates the kitchen from the rest of the house can be made amazingly intriguing by combining a wooden door with glass window panes, with a copper door frame. The same look can be achieved with copper paint like a metallic copper spray paint.
Polished copper light shades in fabulous shapes are a beautiful alternative to traditional tube or recessed lighting in the kitchen. It lends a warm glow to the atmosphere in a kitchen.
Moscow Mule Mugs
The Moscow mule mug has come of age recently with a new generation using them for serving frosty mock-tails and cocktails. The super conductivity of copper keeps drinks icy cold and these mugs look great displayed in the kitchen. They also make the most divine vases especially when paired with a bunch of pink roses or yellow daffodils.
Gorgeous planters that have been upcycled from copper piping are great for planting herbs and to bring some greenery into the kitchen. Displayed on the window sill filled with fragrant herbs they make a stunning display. A similar look can be created by spray painting tin cans of different sizes in a beautiful warm copper color.
Exposed Pipes and Faucets
For a real rustic look exposed copper piping is coming back into fashion and copper taps look great in any kitchen décor.
Pots and Pans
Copper pots and pans are the go-to accessories to bring copper accents into a kitchen. They are not only beautiful but extremely practical as cooking utensils.
Although not the first choice for most, copper counter tops are becoming increasingly popular for their warmth, beauty, and timeless appeal, as well as the anti-microbial benefits of copper.
There are many ways to bring a kitchen up to date with the latest ways of using copper. For a few accents here and there to reflect the warmth of the metal, there are hundreds of copper utensils and even electric appliances like copper kettles and toasters, not to mention cutlery and plates, that will help add a copper theme to copper kitchen decor.
