Kitchen Copper Backsplash

Project by dchi posted 02-17-2010 10:39 PM 6282 views 2 times favorited 12 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This is a minor update to a kitchen that previously had beige tile. We added patina copper sheeting for the backsplash and that helped to give the kitchen a bit more “pizazz”. It was fairly simple to do as the copper can be cut with a sharp utility knife and adhered to 1/4 MDF with contact cement. I think the cabinets are too plain and need some help but all in all it looks a lot better than it did.

What a wonderful moody kitchen, perfect for nighttime living. The green patina is just gorgeous and versatile. It would team well with a little, just a little red or hot pink. Or for a more subtle look, lilac and cream. Hmm I am dreaming.

The kitchen looks great in picture. Tell me though, is the inserts timber or MDF? This would be very expensive if all solid timber, that is, of course, if you have it built by a professional cabinet maker.

There are many options for replacing your ceiling! The option of removing the old ceiling is one, however, this is a messy, I mean messy job. My preference would be to place your new ceiling over the old as this will add further barrier for efficient heating or cooling. The key, as people have noted, is to ensure the rafters are sound before attempting this major work.

The colours go so well together, and stainless appliances provide a touch of glass and luxury for the kitchen.
