Best worktops to complement copper accents in your kitchen

Copper in Kitchen

Copper accents has been an especially popular recent trend for those looking to update their kitchens. This is because copper pairs nicely with a range of styles from traditional to modern and industrial to minimalist.

Since copper is so versatile, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular — but, you might be wondering — what worktops go best in kitchens with copper accents?

Slate or Grey

As a colour, we have no shortage of grey laminate worktops here at Savoy Timber. The hardest part might be choosing which texture and finish of grey worktop will look the best in your kitchen.

For example, if you have a contemporary style kitchen with high-gloss cabinetry, you might want to pick a worktop with a natural texture and a matt finish like slate or wood-effect laminate.

If you have a more country style kitchen, on the other hand, you might want to choose a worktop with satin or lustre finish – like concrete or granite effect – to keep the space bright and fresh.

We find slate texture or, more widely, grey coloured worktops are popular choices when people are looking to complement copper accents in the kitchen.

One reason for this could be down to the fact most grey has a little blue in it that enhances the overall effect of coppers orange and reddish hues.

Marble Effect

Marble-effect laminate worktops are known for how the brilliant white shade contrasts with the streaks of grey and black that run through the surface. The colour variations in the marble contrast beautifully with copper accents or elements. It’s likely that this is for the same reason people turn to black or white in design – it simply goes with everything!

Marble is also a great choice if you have coloured cabinets like blue or green with copper accents and you’re looking for a worktop that will match but not overpower other elements of your kitchen. Our selection of marble-effect laminate worktops can give you the look and feel of the real thing at a fraction of the cost.

Another type of worktop that complements copper accents is wood-effect laminate – we stock a range of colours including white, walnut, oak, and grey.

We absolutely can’t get enough of kitchens and eating areas with wood-effect designs – particularly when accented with copper!

There’s something to be said for the way these two natural materials complement each other – the wood with its rough matt texture and the copper for its smooth shiny appearance – creating a perfect balance.

Overall, there are quite a few worktop styles, colours, and textures that compliment copper fixtures, fixings, and elements in the kitchen.

Here at Savoy Timber, we stock a range of worktop styles and finishes to suit all budgets and projects! If you can’t decide which worktop might work best with the copper accents in your kitchen simply drop by any of our stores in Blackpool, Preston, or Wigan and speak to one of our experts!
