If you’re looking for a sophisticated look in your bathroom, copper bathroom accessories may be just the thing. Copper is a warm reddish-brown color that can range from deep, dark brown with a hint of red to a bright firey shade with a tint of brown. Copper may also be described as ‘rose gold’ or ‘bronze’ by some manufacturers.
You may be thinking that copper won’t work for your bathroom, though. You have fixtures that are made from silvery metals, or even oil brushed bronze. However, using copper against these cooler colors will add depth to your overall design. Combining metallics is a great way to add visual interest to a room rather than leaving it feeling monochromatic and bland.
For other elements in the room, consider grey for your paint. The cool tone will allow the warm copper to stand out. Using a blush pink or bright jewel tones for other accessories will also create contrast with copper. Marble tile for the backsplash around the sink or tub is a great choice for a solid backdrop to showcase copper accessories against.
