Pot filler faucets remain one of the hottest kitchen trends of 2021 because they’re practical and add extra personality to the kitchen. Antique copper is one of the richest and warmest finishes to choose from, and it’s a great choice for a pot filler. Here are four different ways to use an antique copper pot filler to bring more color and life to any kitchen.
Make the Pot Filler a Centerpiece
If the kitchen only needs a hint of color, try making the antique copper pot filler the focus itself by installing it over a bright white background. Whether paint or tile is used, the blank canvas will let the rich copper finish catch the eye instead. It’s one of the most popular combinations with boldly colored pot filler faucets in general, whether the homeowner selected antique copper or another trendy finish like matte black.
Try an Eye-Catching Backsplash
For a double dose of color, pair the classic look of the copper finish with a colorful backsplash around it and above the stove. Hand-painted tiles add Spanish or Tuscan flair depending on the exact designs you choose. Dichroic glass tiles are another good option to bring more color in without clashing with the copper finish. Look for backsplashes that use similar warm tones like red and gold to match the faucet and complement it.
Match the Light Fixtures
To draw the eye upward from the pot filler faucet on the wall to the ceiling, try matching the finish on the light fixture to it. Antique copper light fixtures bring a warm and welcoming look to the space, while they can be fitted with any kind of shades to direct light right where it’s needed. If the existing fixtures are preferred, changing the shades on them to warmer colors or glass bowls with copper accents can tie them to the faucet.
Match the Range Knobs
Finally, consider finding replacement control knobs for the range or stove to connect it to the pot filler faucet above. Copper-colored control knobs work well with white, black, and stainless steel finishes alike and bring a classic look to the appliance.
