Copper Kitchen Backsplash

When you’ve decided on the style, color and texture of copper backsplash you’ll feature, it’s time to determine how much copper material you’ll need. This decision will be driven by a number of factors, including your budget for the project, the surface area you need to cover, how you use your cooking space, and how much visual impact you want your copper backsplash to have within your kitchen design. Copper isn’t an inexpensive material, so depending on your budget, you may want to look into a more low-profile backsplash in order to stay on target financially. If your cooking style creates significant spatter on your kitchen walls, however, you may have no choice but to opt for a design covering more surface area. Once you’ve considered the various factors at play, determine the amount of copper material you’ll need by measuring the surface area and calculating the square footage.

There are plenty of ways that you can craft a striking copper backsplash that gives your kitchen loads of individuality and a striking metallic glint. Copper penny tiles are definitely our favorite among them all, as they not only bring the goodness of copper along with them, but also provide geo style and a sense of uniqueness. Small hexagonal copper tiles also offer similar perks, while larger square and rectangular pieces offer a more conventional look.

When your copper backsplash material is in hand, it’s time to install your luminous new kitchen feature. For copper backsplashes that are a single piece or several large tiles, a self-install probably won’t be too much trouble, as you can likely use an adhesive backing to attach the copper pieces to the wall. If, however, you’ve opted for an array of smaller copper tiles, your installation may be more complex, which will require cutting and sizing the tiles to precise measurements. It’s still not outside the realm of DIY for homeowners with decent skills in this area, but if you don’t number among them, you may want to save the trouble and hire a professional to install your new copper backsplash.

It is this natural gaining that sets copper apart from brass and makes it such an inherent part of kitchens with styles such as rustic, traditional, farmhouse and Mediterranean. The copper-tiled backsplash can either be contained to the small wall behind the stove, or you can choose a full-fledged backsplash in metal that covers the entire wall behind the kitchen countertop.

Try a glass counter or tabletop, tile, door cabinets or kitchen doors that lead to the outside world or to the next room.

Pastels or light colors, with good doses of white, reflect light and draw the eye up, making ceilings appear higher. Bold colorations can be very effective in smaller kitchens. How about some Porsche red metal cabinets with celery green walls and a banana-colored concrete countertop?
