Gone are the days when metals were associated with restricting commercial and industrial premises. And almost gone are the days when the phrase “metal in interior design” would crave up images of restricting loft-style interiors. This rough material can be now found in loads of styles, even most unexpected ones at first sight.
Copper pots, pans, and a kettle hung randomly on a kitchen railing or some other type of mounting add a spice to the furnished area on the one hand and enhance the stylistic concept of the interior on the other hand. The style of these appliances will set up the atmosphere of your cooking space.
Copper tiles, as well as copper in sheets, form great wall coverings in spaces with modern moderate, industrial or an apartment. But be sure that such a finishing material will unquestionably add a strong note of cruelty and rigidity to the interior. In this field of application you shouldn’t expect copper to feel as warm and cozy as it can be when used in small portions, so you should think twice before using it in family spaces.
Copper is known for its bactericidal properties, which means that it prevents bacteria growth and can be safely used as a practical material for kitchen worktops and tops of dining tables.
One of the most popular ways of refreshing old furnishing is replacing its fittings. Remember that excellent looking copper accessories would look equally stunning on doors of ancient cupboards and on drawers of art-deco-style chests.
If you’re looking for easy ways to include copper into your home, consider buying a lamp with a shade made of this metal. Fortunately, today’s lighting market is packed with such offers.
