What Color Should my Cabinets be for Copper Cabinet Hardware and Copper Knobs?

Copper is an incredibly versatile color for decorative hardware, and contrary to what one might think, it can be easily matched with various palettes. With white cabinetry being the most popular choice, you have a blank canvas to work with any shade of copper.

For instance, the rose gold City Lights Oval Knob will shine brightly against soft white paint, while an antique copper finish will complement deep forest green cabinet doors, creating a moody and deep-toned kitchen perfect for an industrial or rustic style. Satin copper is a flexible option that pairs well with navy blue or grey cabinetry.

It's worth noting that not all copper finishes resemble rose gold. Antique copper, for example, has an aged look that brings out deeper brown tones, while the Ducale Knurled T-Knob falls more into the brown palette with just a hint of copper. Copper hardware suits a variety of colors and styles, making it a versatile choice for any home.

Do I Have to Find Matching Copper Fixtures?

Choosing copper handles or knobs doesn't mean you have to commit to an all-copper kitchen. While matching appliances and light fixtures can be a great option, there are plenty of complimentary metallic finishes that can harmonize with copper. A matte black finish, for example, pairs beautifully with copper and is readily available in various hardware, appliances, and decor options.

Mixed metallic finishes have become a popular trend, with chrome, gold, and brushed finishes working in harmony to create spaces that truly reflect personal style. Copper complements both gold and silver, making it a perfect finish to incorporate in a mixed metallic home. If you want to add more copper accents elsewhere in your home, consider using small fixtures or hardware in other areas for a cohesive look. Adding copper hooks to a mudroom or front entryway, for example, can maintain the flow of the finish throughout the space.

There are no strict rules stating that your cabinet hardware must match the rest of your hardware. Bold and decorative options are gaining popularity, with cabinet hardware now seen as the jewelry of the kitchen rather than just a functional addition. Use copper pulls as statement pieces and incorporate stand-alone finishes if that appeals to you more.

If you're on a budget, incorporating more copper into your kitchen can be achieved by displaying copper cookware and kitchen utensils. Hanging pots and pans or using copper cooking utensils allows you to match your handles with some of your decor. Whether you opt for floating shelves or a cookware hanger, let your kitchen utensils shine instead of hiding them away in drawers or cabinets.

For a more permanent addition, consider Emtek's Satin Rose Gold door hardware. This stunning finish will add a consistent flow of copper tones throughout your home. If you plan on adding more copper accents in other rooms, using this door hardware can help create a cohesive finish throughout the spaces.

Accent with Copper

While copper can make a statement on your cabinetry, choosing between darker handles or those closer to the gold family can be challenging. An Antique Copper Bronze Highlight is a great option for those wanting the best of both worlds. This finish gives a rub-through copper look that adds depth and style, making it easier to incorporate if you're concerned about having enough copper accents to match.

Another option for accenting with copper is two-toned handles like the Emtek Select, which features a different colored stem from the handle. Dual-toned hardware opens up more opportunities to match with other fixtures, creating a stunning contrast against your cabinetry. Choosing a flat black or oil-rubbed bronze finish with copper can complement a variety of light fixtures, faucets, and other appliances. Flat black provides a universally complimentary finish that pairs well with any accessory or piece of decor.

Mixed finish handles offer unparalleled versatility. They are gaining popularity and are expected to be a top trend for 2023.

Will Copper Hardware Go Out of Style?

While we can never predict the future, copper seems to be here to stay for quite some time. When customers shop for finishes like matte black, gold, or copper, they often have concerns about trends. However, trends come and go, and what matters most is choosing hardware that you love and desire. Copper hardware has become increasingly popular and shows no signs of fading away.
