Coffee lovers, this is the copper kitchen accessory for you. French designers at La Cafetière have exquisitely designed this copper cafètiere, combining rustic charm with a chic contemporary look. Buy a set of copper mugs too for a proper copper coffee-party (they are great for serving up a Moscow mule too when you need a stronger brew).

2. Pop in a copper toaster

This copper toaster and kettle, is the perfect matching set to add subtle hints of copper around your kitchen. We love how the copper colour pops against the dark blue wall.

3. Choose a copper KitchenAid mixer

If you're looking to create a statement in your traditional kitchen, a copper sink is a great focal point. This rustic, hammered design can be under-mounted or freestanding. It is also incredibly low maintenance and the existing patina will withstand wear and tear well.

5. And pick a matching copper tap

If you want to just add a touch of copper, switching out your kitchen tap can be a really easy way to do so. We love a brass tap, they just add such a rustic vibe to a kitchen and is so much softer than going with silver chrome. This tap is from deVOL and has a lovely aged look that stops them from being too shiny and keeps the look subtle. 

6. Add a touch of copper with kitchen hardware

Want to add some copper hues but doing up a kitchen on a budget? Copper kitchen handles can totally transform the look and feel of a kitchen and is a really easy job you can do yourself. Copper works with so many colours too – dark blue, white and (our personal fave) sage green – so why not like your new copper handles inspire a new kitchen colour too and have a go at painting kitchen cupboards

7. Choose on-trend copper pendant lighting

If you are loving all these copper kitchen accessories but want something that has even more of an impact then a copper splashback is for you. This one is made up of copper leaf glass tiles from Original Source, we love how it ties together all the other small copper accessories. 

9. Or go all out with a copper worktop 

If you want even mooore copper, choose copper as your choice of the best kitchen worktop material. In this deVOL kitchen, the glamorous countertop is the perfect match for the bared back simple Shaker-style kitchen cabinets. 

10. Pick out copper pots and pans

Copper pots and pans add a lovely rustic look to any kitchen, but we know they can get a bit pricey for the real thing. So if you are more into the look of copper pots than if they will actually last you a lifetime go and check out Croft Collection's hammered copper range for some affordable alternatives.
