Country Living named copper decor the biggest trend in country bathrooms, and it’s not hard to see why! With their cheerful rose gold hue, copper bathroom accents instantly warm up any room!

Designing with Copper Bathroom Tiles
Is there such a thing as too much copper? We don’t think so! A mix of finishes on the wall and floor tiles are all made cohesive thanks to a unifying copper color with our Ionic Herringbone Copper Porcelain Mosaic Tile as an accent to Ionic Decor Impact Copper Porcelain wall tiles and Ionic Copper Porcelain floor Tile
It might surprise a lot of homeowners to know that you can achieve a metal look with porcelain tiles! We’re no stranger to the diversity of finishes that can be applied to porcelain - if you can make it look like natural wood, metal isn’t that hard to achieve! The luster of these metallic-looking tiles is achieved by glazing the twice-fired tiles with a metal rinse finish. It is less high-maintenance than designing with actual metal, as the porcelain tiles can be washed with water and tile cleaner.
Unlike actual copper materials, they do not develop a patina over time, but keep their metallic luster thanks to the glaze that gives these long-wearing tiles their color and sheen!
Our large-format Ionic Copper Porcelain Tiles have rectified edges to keep the installed look clean and minimal. Reduced grout lines and a beautifully applied copper finish are the perfect way to create a modern and industrial bathroom design, or paired with wood decor and country-style accessories for a rustic look. These metal-look porcelain tiles can be installed on bathroom walls or floors, or their slip-resistant surface makes for a stunning shower tile as well!
Looking for an easy-to-install copper bathroom tile? Our Copper look picket peel and stick tile is a cinch to apply, thanks to a heavy-duty adhesive backing on these aluminum tiles. The mixed metallic finish and trending picket tile design is finished in a burnished copper color with a brushed metal texture that adds a modern metallic feature to this minimalist Scandinavian bathroom design! It’s so easy to get creative with a peel and stick tile for a DIY home improvement project, and this statement wall is easy to do on your own! The aluminum copper-look tiles are thin enough to be cut with tin snips or heaving duty shears, but can be installed on your bathroom wall or even in your shower!
You can also use real metal tiles to capture that copper shine! In true copper fashion, metal tiles like our Copper Sticks Metal Mosaic Tile will take on a patina over time. A patina is a top layer that builds up and can take on a blue-green hue that complements the natural finish on these modern mosaic tiles. Think the Statue of Liberty or vintage pennies! Having a patina add color to your metal tiles can be part of their appeal, but if you want to keep the bright and shiny copper look without the oxidizing effect, sticking to the materials we listed above with a copper look are a great alternative!
Best Tiles to Pair with Copper Bathroom Decor
Love the look of copper bathroom accessories or looking for inspiration to style your metallic vanity decor? There are so many gorgeous options when it comes to copper bathroom fixtures, lighting designs, and accessory options that you may want to use it as a stunning accent to other tile designs! Luckily this warm and cozy detail
The handcrafted appearance and silky black color of our Mallorca black ceramic subway tiles is a dramatic way to accent a hammered copper vessel sink. The color combination is bold and modern for a bathroom design, while both the tiles and fixture add an organic element through their textured finish. Copper sinks will naturally take on a patina as they age, changing from warmer rose gold colors to take on shades of green or turquoise. If you want to preserve the natural copper look of your sink, a copper wax can help keep the metallic luster by protecting your sink from hard water buildup and corrosion.
Another gorgeous way to offset copper bathroom accessories? Pair the metallic finish with the dazzle of glass! This ultra modern bathroom design combines a floating vanity cabinet with marble countertops and round copper pan sinks to add rose gold brilliance to the sea glass-inspired backsplash tile. Our Ocean Glass Hexagon Blue Mosaic Tile adds to the luminous colors used throughout this modern coastal bathroom design, finishing off the minimalist modern bathroom decor with the look of hand-poured glass tiles. Adding hanging copper light fixtures ties in the metallic details perfectly while keeping the mix of finishes beautifully cohesive!
One of the biggest appeals of using copper bathroom fixtures is the warmth they add to your space. Pairing them with a tile that echoes warm earth tones is a natural way to create a bathroom space that feels cozy and inviting rather than cold and clinical! Natural stone is a perfect pairing for copper bathroom accents and decor, like this Sand Valley and Thassos Leaf Marble Mosaic Tile for a mid-century modern bathroom!
