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.

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.
