Metallic finishes are a wonderful way to bring texture, glamour or a little attitude to your kitchen — and right now we are all about copper and bronze! Not third place in our minds at all, copper and bronze finishes are especially powerful and can make a huge impact in your kitchen design. From the chic accent your neutral kitchen has been needing to the missing piece of your rustic theme, adding a touch of these warm metals can do wonders. Our top three recommendations for incorporating bronze or cooper in the kitchen are through your sink, cabinet pulls and knobs, or backsplashes. Read on to learn more if you’re as crazy for copper and bronze as we are.
Copper Kitchen Sinks
It’s not just farmhouse or rustic themed kitchens that have a place for copper kitchen sinks these days. This interesting addition is gaining a fan base in even the most modern and traditional rooms. The big appeal is obviously their look, which adds unique character and beautiful color. But they are also popular for their durability and sanitizing benefits.
Copper requires little maintenance and can be washed using just soap and water. Its color will change over time and you will notice variations, but this artistic aging is part of copper’s appeal. You can, of course, treat your sink with wax occasionally to prolong these changes if you choose. Another bonus is that bacteria can’t live for more than a few hours on copper, making it both durable and sanitary.
When shopping for your copper sink, you’ll find there are a few different styles available. The RTA Store offers a wide range of copper kitchen sinks: single bowl, double offset bowl, double equal bowl and apron sink. Consider adding one of these selections to your kitchen cabinets for an update that will surely make a statement.
Bronze Knobs And Pulls
Add some metallic magic to your cabinets with bronze cabinet pulls and knobs. This simple update can deliver a rustic, vintage, or Old World world vibe to your kitchen. It is honestly such a simple adjustment and the results are really monumental.
Take a look in our kitchen accessories department to discover some of the brushed oil rubbed bronze pulls and knobs we carry at The RTA Store. This striking finish looks lovely against white cabinets but is equally complementary to natural wood and black cabinets. The interesting color variation allows you to pair bronze cabinet pulls and knobs with such a wide range of kitchen cabinet colors.
Some shimmering bronze along your kitchen wall is a bold and beautiful way to jump on this trend. Surely you’ve seen metallic backsplashes before, but many of the styles are color blends or straight silver. Copper backsplash tiles offer a little more warmth and pair perfectly with copper kitchen sinks and other natural tones.
The RTA Store’s Venetian Glass and Aluminum Tile in Satin Copper is a brilliant blend of shapes, colors and patterns. Not your everyday kitchen backsplash, these copper backsplash tiles add an unexpected element to the room. Installing a backsplash is a relatively easy DIY project, meaning your new copper kitchen could be here closer than you think!
