A copper backsplash can lend a unique, high-end aspect to any kitchen, with the added benefit that the copper will evolve over time, via exposure to air and moisture, deepening in color and even developing natural waves and patterns within the metal.

Copper backsplash designs are available in a wide range of colors, textures and patterns. The simplest form of copper backsplash is a straightforward, flat and smooth piece of copper, or an array of flat, smooth copper tiles. Available in several hues, from light to dark brown copper, this simple but elegant design can be a great addition to any kitchen. If you'd like to explore designs that add more visual interest, however, these are also in abundance.

Though durable, copper is one of the softer metals, meaning it can be easily manipulated into patterns and designs. Arrays of punches, dents, designs or scars in the metal can create tremendous visual interest, turning an everyday backsplash into a piece of art. To find the right style of copper backsplash for your kitchen design, you'll simply need to explore the offerings at your local home improvement store or tile specialty retailer—or via any number of online sources for metal backsplash materials.

When you've decided on the style, color and texture of copper backsplash you'll feature, it's time to determine how much copper material you'll need. This decision will be driven by a number of factors, including your budget for the project, the surface area you need to cover, how you use your cooking space, and how much visual impact you want your copper backsplash to have within your kitchen design. Copper isn't an inexpensive material, so depending on your budget, you may want to look into a more low-profile backsplash in order to stay on target financially. If your cooking style creates significant spatter on your kitchen walls, however, you may have no choice but to opt for a design covering more surface area. Once you've considered the various factors at play, determine the amount of copper material you'll need by measuring the surface area and calculating the square footage.

When your copper backsplash material is in hand, it's time to install your luminous new kitchen feature. For copper backsplashes that are a single piece or several large tiles, a self-install probably won't be too much trouble, as you can likely use an adhesive backing to attach the copper pieces to the wall. If, however, you've opted for an array of smaller copper tiles, your installation may be more complex, which will require cutting and sizing the tiles to precise measurements. It's still not outside the realm of DIY for homeowners with decent skills in this area, but if you don't number among them, you may want to save the trouble and hire a professional to install your new copper backsplash.
