In terms of adaptability, copper is hard to beat. It can be finished in metallic, matte or gloss and paired with complimentary woods, stones and glasses to create modern-urban, vintage, industrial and eclectic spaces. Contrast is key. Placed next to white and grey fixtures, copper can add that final detail you might need to finish a room.
If there's one room copper shines best in, it's the kitchen. Matching copper fixtures used to contrast dark, solid colors popular in kitchen areas is a sure-fire way to add flair and character to a room where steel, brass or marble might go unnoticed. For the most eye-catching copper design possible, go with a shade of blue; because copper is a warm orange and blue is orange's complimentary color. The two look amazing together and copper's natural varnish makes it turquoise as time goes on.
Copper is also a popular choice for free-standing bath tubs. If you're looking for a material to use for both your tub and your plumbing hardware, look no further.
