Get creative with copper and brass

get creative with copper and brass

There’s something comforting about copper and brass. These luminous metals have been at the heart of the home for centuries and have seen a style revival lately. Featured in many an interiors magazine, these small copper and brass touches can go a long way to creating impact, and there are some beautiful metallic style wall tile ranges available that will certainly cause a stir.

If you want to make an impression without going too ‘bling’ then pick just one element in your kitchen to glam up with soft warm metals tones. A splashback in our beautiful Foil Sunbeam Mosaic range would certainly make an impact in a simple, understated kitchen; the rich deep autumnal colours creating a soft contrast to fresh white walls. These high shine reflective tiles could be complimented by a few other simple touches like traditional copper saucepans or cabinet handles to create a kitchen that glimmers gently. If you want to add texture into the mix then consider our CE brown/bronze mosaic mix wall tile.

But don’t let us put a limit on your creativity, perhaps a full-on metallic statement is more your bag, with lighting, furniture or worktop all twinkling gently in the autumn light. Perhaps even a wall of copper or brass is more to your taste. If so then you may want to consider our Split Slate Mosaic range, which although is made from natural stone, with its various tones of gold, brass and copper, brings an understated richness to any room.

The beauty of copper and brass is that they work wonderfully with other natural materials such as stone or marble. So a touch of brass, perhaps in the form of contemporary taps or a small tiled area, in a marble dominated bathroom works to warm up the space and bring in some modern style. Utilitarian copper pipe taps are an accessory that are being seen more frequently, and loved for their simple industrial feel. Team this with our Zanzibar Classy Glass mosaic tile, which imitates the rich tones of copper and gold, and you’re on to a style winner.

Copper and brass bring just the right note of chic to a kitchen be they battered copper pipes in an industrial kitchen or highly polished ceiling pendants in a more traditional room. However far you want to take this quirky style trend, there are some lovely tile ranges available to suit every style, so make it your own.
