A popular trend that never seems to go out of style is that of using metallics in the kitchen, creating a fresh and modern look that can give the room a sleek and unique finish.

Instagram is filled with photos from proud homeowners who have completely transformed their kitchen with the use of copper, rose gold and stainless steel, which are often created with a strict budget and without the help of contractors. We have put together a few easy ideas to help you give your own kitchen a beautiful metallic makeover.

Choose your splashback

This will be a main feature of your kitchen and what you will base the rest of the room around. Order some samples to begin with, especially if you have not used metallics before, to make sure that you like the colour and effect that it gives.

Copper Effect Kitchen Splashback

With the ability to add warmth and natural beauty, copper can work in both a traditionally styled kitchen or a contemporary one. It will look fantastic with neutral surrounding walls or equally with bold colours, so can be versatile to whatever your personal tastes are.

Brushed Aluminium Composite Splashback

For a sleek and contemporary finish, go for a brushed aluminium splashback which will give a clean and seamless look to your kitchen.

Rose Gold Effect Kitchen Splashback

A beautiful shade that will fit in with any other colours and decor that you choose, this splashback will be easy to keep looking shiny and new.

Accessories and finishes

Once you have your chosen splashback in place, you can start work on the remainder of your kitchen. Neutral walls and cupboards will match easily to your splashback, but if you are feeling brave you could go for something more bold, even a colour which has a metallic sheen to it.

Accessories are a great way to finish off your new look, which can be chosen to match the colour of your splashback, pulling the style together in a seamless way. Mix and match the following which you will be able to find in copper, rose gold and aluminium finishes.

  • Metallic taps
  • Kettle, toasters and microwaves
  • Cabinet handles
  • Waste bins
  • Stools
  • Laminate flooring with a hint of metallic
