Prepare for the Ascension of the Copper Trend in Interior Design ⇒ While it also already heavily featured in the industry, copper is about to become one of, if not most utilized materials in the foreseeable future due to its antibacterial properties and also owing to the fact that it is a 100% recyclable material that is highly durable.
With everything that is going on in the world Covid-19 related, designers are starting to change their approach and opting for decorative materials and finishes that highlight better hygienic properties and copper finds itself at the top of that list. This material easily becomes the perfect complement for kitchens, bathrooms, tableware, lighting designs, and decorative hardware.
As aforementioned, copper shines its best when accentuated in lighting designs, mainly because of its metallic nature that effortlessly offers a warm and soft glow to an interior. In addition, it offers a more minimalist and clean aesthetic and its pinkish-orange hue is also rather pleasing to the eye. interior design, interior design, interior design

One of the designers best known for encouraging and refining the copper trend is Tom Dixon. Many of his lighting fixtures possess a copper character as he believes that “Copper is still the most amazing material. It’s the first metal that was melted so it’s responsible also for progressive humanity, from very early times.” Take, for example, Dixon’s Bell Table Lamp or the Spot Surface Wall Lights.
Another great design manufacturer that has paid special attention to copper is deVOL, a renowned powerhouse in kitchen design. According to Helen Parker, deVOL’s creative director, “Copper looks rare and precious, and turns out to have amazing antibacterial properties, which now make it even more desirable. What a special product it has turned out to be, so glamorously chic and a little bohemian, with the power to kill pathogens in minutes.” Below, you can find a kitchen design with bespoke copper tops and splashback conceived by the British manufacturer.
Besides kitchen interiors, the copper trend can also be found abundantly in bathroom decor, especially in design elements such as sinks, freestanding tubs, or even cabinetry hardware. Below, you can find two examples: a bathroom brimming with copper accents, including the Nouveau drawer handle by PullCast and the Copper Boat Bath by BC Designs with nickel interior. interior design, interior design, interior design, interior design
In conclusion, copper is the most resistible material as viruses only stand for a couple of hours or even minutes on its surface, opposite to steel and glass that can actually last for days. This makes copper one of the most viable solutions in the design industry taking into consideration our current living conditions.
