1 of 5
Warm Up Your Kitchen with Copper Accents
  • The meals we make can feel like a warm hug, why not make your kitchen feel the same. Add warmth to your kitchen’s color palette with copper.
  • Make a bold style statement in your kitchen with shiny copper accents from utensils and pans to even making your own DIY copper stool.
  • Go for a subtle glow with brushed or worn copper that stands out against black and white appliances.
  • Choosing one type of copper finish over another is fine. However, we never leave well enough alone, so add both! Create a rosy glow to brighten up a cold space by pairing shiny utensils with your muted metal canisters.

  • Incorporating metals in your kitchen can have a dramatic effect. First, take the temperate of your kitchen’s color palette. Is it warm (buttery yellow), cool (gray or blue) or neutral?
  • Cool down and balance a warm space with brushed stainless steel or aluminum appliance hardware.

  • Pillar candles, tea lights, and candle jars are a simple way to elevate your routine into special memorable moments in the kitchen.
  • Try a chandelier or statement pendant light over your island where you do food prep or under-cabinet lights that illuminate the dark areas near food prep space. Create your own DIY rustic chandelier or pendant light.
  • Tie your whole kitchen transformation together by embracing natural light and allowing it to reflect off your newly added metal accents.
