There are several reasons why copper makes an excellent choice for kitchen decoration.

Additionally, if you have a white kitchen, incorporating copper accents can create a warm and cozy ambiance. You might be wondering if copper is still in style for kitchens. The answer is yes! Copper is a timeless metal that effortlessly complements both modern kitchen designs and traditional home decor. Its enduring appeal ensures that it will never go out of style. So, go ahead and embrace copper in your kitchen decor.

With the background information in mind, let's explore the best copper kitchen accent ideas that will elevate the style of your space:

Copper Cookware over the Stove

If you want to make a statement, using copper cookware hanging over your stove or on a pot rack is the perfect choice. What's great about copper cookware accents is that they can serve both as decoration and functional storage for your cooking essentials. You can display your collection of copper cookware or use them regularly in your culinary adventures.

You can find inexpensive copper cookware at antique or thrift stores, giving you the opportunity to test out whether copper accents are right for your kitchen. Command hooks provide a temporary solution for hanging copper items over your stove without drilling into your ceramic tile. After trying out this temporary method and falling in love with copper, you can opt for a more permanent solution.

Hanging the Copper Cookware

When I shared my temporary copper accents on Instagram, I was amazed by the positive response. Many people loved the idea of using command hooks to display copper without making permanent changes to their kitchen. To achieve the look you desire, consider purchasing a pot holder rack and customizing it to match your style. For example, you can spray paint a silver pot holder with Behr antique copper spray paint to create a stunning copper color.

Next, hang the pot holder and arrange your copper cookware on the hooks. This approach allows you to test out copper accents in your kitchen before making a long-term commitment. Once you're convinced that copper is the perfect addition to your kitchen, you can enjoy the warmth and charm it brings to the space.

While hanging copper pots and pans over your stove is one way to incorporate copper accents, there are other simple and nostalgic ideas to consider.

Copper Kitchen Accents on Shelves or Hooks

Shelves and hooks offer additional opportunities to display copper accents. Consider hanging copper items or placing them on your shelves or dish rack. If you have unique copper pieces such as a copper bowl, copper canisters, or moscow mule mugs, white cabinets or open shelving will beautifully showcase their charm. Repetition of the copper color in a room's design can create a cohesive and visually pleasing look. For example, you can hang an antique copper ladle against a white or light-colored wall to make the copper stand out even more.

Keep in mind that placing copper against a white or light-colored background emphasizes its beauty. Copper also complements white marble countertops impeccably.

While two copper accents may be enough for some kitchens, depending on your preference, there are several other copper detail ideas to consider.

Copper Accents on Appliances

Look for appliances with copper handles or details to add a touch of elegance to your kitchen. For instance, my GE cafe range and refrigerator feature gold handles with a copper ring. These shiny copper accents contribute to the overall aesthetic and provide a sophisticated and polished look. The warm tones of gold and copper complement each other beautifully. You can find appliances with copper knobs or even opt for a copper range hood if you desire a truly vintage aesthetic in your kitchen.

Kitchen Copper Accents on Walls

Adding copper decorations to your kitchen walls can be a fun and affordable way to incorporate this metal into your decor. While I don't regularly have copper wall decor in my kitchen, I decided to experiment with copper accents during the fall season. I visited my favorite vintage stores and found a copper plate and copper flue plate. To display them, I simply tied them with a jute cord and hung them on hooks in my kitchen sitting area, creating charming fall decorations made of copper.

Decorating your kitchen with copper

For a fall-inspired copper accent, you can also shop for copper molds or wall art. These pieces can be incorporated into a gallery wall or displayed alongside other artwork and accessories. I recently fell in love with an adorable bunny mold made of copper and I'm considering adding it to my kitchen walls or hanging it over my stove.

You might even consider a copper backsplash or copper pendant lights to further elevate your kitchen's style.

To conclude, white kitchens provide the perfect canvas for copper accents to shine. With a multitude of copper cookware items available, both new and antique, you have numerous options to explore. Etsy is an excellent platform to find new and vintage copper cookware and molds. If you prefer new items, consider shopping at William and Sonoma for their beautiful copper cookware that is not only great for cooking but also for displaying on a pot rack. You can rest assured that it is safe to use for your loved ones.
