When it comes to home colour schemes, autumn is one of our favourites. Not only is the autumn colour scheme filled with life, but it’s one of the most timeless – lacking most of the coolness of a winter scheme or the brightness of a summer look.
The key to a successful autumn interior design scheme is warmth. From carpets to wooden furniture, autumn colour schemes need a sense of strong, natural warmth to succeed.
One of the best ways to add warmth to your autumn colour scheme is by using sleek, stylish copper tile. Read on to discover three methods for stylish copper tile usage in autumn homes, courtesy of the design experts at The Tile Depot.
1. Use copper tiling as an elegant kitchen backsplash
A stylish backsplash is an important element of the modern kitchen, and copper is an excellent material for modern, autumn-themed homes. Thanks to its rich colour and elegant style, copper fits in perfectly with granite countertops and stainless steel kitchen equipment.
Give your kitchen an elegant look that just can’t be matched with other backsplash materials. While large copper tiles look excellent in a classic wooden kitchen, small copper tiles – around one inch or less in each direction – are an excellent choice for dark, modern, minimalistic kitchens.
2. Add colour to your bathroom with copper tile
When it comes to bathroom tiling, most interior designers opt for white, black, or tan. Despite copper tiling having a reputation as a ‘kitchen tile’, it can be a stylish choice for bathrooms with a dark, autumn colour scheme.
Copper tiles look best when paired with other dark materials. Try slate flooring for a modern, designer look, with rich wooden shelving and granite bathroom countertop surfaces. The darker the rest of your bathroom, the more contrast the copper tiling will provide.
3. Accentuate bookshelves, entertainment units, and more
Nothing completes a stylish, autumn-themed reading room like copper tiling. If your home or apartment contains a separate reading or entertainment room, try adding a copper tiling section behind bookshelves, entertainment units, or above your liquor cabinet.
The rich, upper class appearance of copper tiling makes it the perfect addition to an old-fashioned rumpus room or library. Pair it with a pool table for the ultimate old-fashioned, smoky look of previous generations.
