Warm, reflective and glowing… VitrA’s stunning Copper Brassware & Bathroom Accessories

Copper is a traditional material that has stormed its way back into fashion.  Warm, reflective and glowing it is certainly making all of us here at ukbathrooms.com keen to update our own bathrooms!

         

We love this stunning range from VitrA, encompassing brassware and accessories all in a choice of finishes including Copper. Pair this metal with natural materials such as wood and marble for an elegant, contemporary look.  The copper trend is showing no sign of slowing down, and current demand is high on our site.  The polished finish from VitrA has a more golden look as opposed to a natural deep orange tone.

Over the past few years metallics have become really popular with the warm copper and brass shades being easy to incorporate in our homes.  In your bathroom, opt for copper taps, shower, waste, exposed bottle trap and matching accessories, use the Copper as a standout feature so it really makes your room pop.

      

Opulent shades such as Kingfisher blue and teal are a perfect partner to this metal, decadent in tone they are an ideal combination. Equally, a bathroom that uses marble and copper brassware has an appeal that is timeless. Charcoal, smoky greys, blush pink and neutrals also work with this warm finish and can be visually stunning.

Tip – use copper sparingly for more impact – either limit to a gorgeous copper bath or brassware and accessories – less is often more!
