Classic elegance with copper punctuations

It is official, metals are back – especially copper! While focussing on copper as a timeless and elegant decorative option however, it’s important to remember that it is also very easy to get wrong. Here are a few tips when decorating with copper . . .

Metal in a bathroom is usually associated with the pipes (exposed pipes are still cool if incorporated in the right away), but there are other modern metallic finishes on the market too. Whether you introduce a copper bath tub into your bathroom or keep it subtle with a metal frame mirror, metals add an air of sophistication to the modern bathroom. Richmond Plumbing shares their top tips for incorporating copper into your bathroom.

Go big and bold

Sometimes it is easier to decorate and design with one, bold piece in mind, something you can design around. A copper bath, for instance, could stand in the middle of your bathroom as the centrepiece and you can then decorate accordingly. Décor is usually easy to match if you stick with simple, solid colours so that the room does not look too busy. You don’t want the centrepiece to be overthrown. Alternatively, you could place your bath against a copper background.

Light it up

Your bathroom will automatically be transformed with the inclusion of decorative lighting. When decorating with copper, you are not limited by the floors, walls, and fixtures: funky-shaped or coloured lighting can make a difference too. Copper-coloured chandeliers and stunning ceiling lamps can give your bathroom a chic and magical touch.

Decorating with copper fixtures

If you are looking to do away with the usual chrome bathroom fixtures, then rose gold or copper fixtures are an elegant alternative. The Bathroom Butler colour range boasts three colour finishes for your bathroom accessories, rose gold being one of them. Polished rose gold or copper elements in a bathroom are trendy and sophisticated when incorporated in the right way.
