What you need to know about using copper in the bathroom

PUBLISHED: 15:17 21 July 2015 | UPDATED: 15:37 21 July 2015


When it comes to interiors, one trend that’s set to stay is copper. It first made its appearance last year and it’s a trend that has really made its mark in the interiors world and we’re seeing the trend transfer to bathrooms.

It’s a trend that adds warmth and elegance to any home and if you’re looking for an instant style update then perhaps a touch of copper is just what you need. As the King of metallics, copper can appear anywhere in the home. 2015 has seen a move towards copper in the bathroom and if you’re looking to showcase the trend in your own home then you should consider bathroom design experts Ripples.

If you’re a convert to the trend then Ripples have an array of striking copper pieces available. If you are wanting to add a feature to the bathroom then opt for a statement radiator from Bisque; sleek and cool, their copper Arteplano design will create impact in any space.

For groundbreaking shower designs head to Axor and if you prefer the luxury of a bath then Bagno’s copper baths will be exactly what you’ll be needing to introduce the copper trend in to your bathroom, firstly for your own enjoyment but also to create that real “wow” factor. If you prefer to give a nod to the trend, then take a look at Burgbad’s latest “Orell” collection, their copper accents are subtle but will certainly add style to any bathroom.

This is a trend that has made its mark and it won’t be going anywhere, talking to a bathroom design expert allows you the chance to talk about whether this trend (and any other) will transfer to your home, and with experts on hand, Ripples can offer you the advice and guidance to creating your perfect copper haven.


Rebecca Washer, Ripples Brighton showroom manager commented on the copper trend

1. Compliment copper - consider using slate grey as a beautiful complimentary colour. This will really make the copper in your bathroom “pop”.

2. Keep the trend consistent - it’s important to think about the rest of your bathroom when you incorporate copper, I’d definitely suggest looking at the brassware you currently have or are thinking of investing in so that it works with the copper you introduce.

3. Feature pieces - a bold copper bath is sometimes just the right amount of copper, sometimes less really is more with this trend.
