Go for copper fittings, which are strong, ages well and looks just as great as having copper surfaces. Choose to match it with a copper sink with a faucet for a coordinated and sleek look to it.
If ever you chose to have a copper faucet and sink, the best way to match it in the kitchen is with light fittings made of copper, too.
This is a great choice with exterior light fittings, as it’s weather-resistant and it has the rustic charm indoors. For those who want a copper-inspired kitchen, suspended copper lamps are best.
