HomeThangs.com – the Home Improvement Super Store has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer, with that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.
Copper is widely used in kitchen and bath fixtures – copper kitchen sinks, copper bathtubs, copper vessel sinks, just about any way one can emphasize or accessorize with copper in a home. Not only is copper beautiful and easy to care for, but it ages naturally with time, developing a beautiful antique patina and maturing while in use. HomeThangs.com introduced a collection of copper bathroom vanities for those who love the look of natural weathered copper, and don’t want to stop with a sink or a tub. Rustic copper bathroom vanities are the perfect way to bring more of that elegantly aged look into any bathroom.
1. There are several different types of copper vanities, and a lot of the style depends on how much of the vanity is made or finished with copper. It is not likely to find any solid copper bathroom vanities, just because the material is expensive, heavy, and might not play well with the flooring. On the copper-heavy end of the spectrum there is a Langley copper vanity by Sierra Copper, which comes complete with weathered copper paneling on all the doors and drawers, a full copper countertop and matching Savannah copper sink. The slightly weathered finish on the wood and the antique iron accent handles make for a fantastic vintage look and feel with a nice old West flair.
2. Many copper bathroom vanities have a similar rustic design. The SCANA copper vanity, for example, uses weathered wood and richly aged copper paneling and countertop in place of the traditional whites and pastels. This vanity is all texture and color, top to bottom. Each of the three areas of copper – the sink, the counters, and the paneling – has a slightly different finish both in aging and in the literal texture, and because of their different locations, they’ll age differently as well, making for a spectacular depth and range of finishes. As well, the aging of the wood on each vanity is unique and will add a one of a kind rugged authenticity to the decor.
3. With the Sierra Copper Hampton farmhouse copper bathroom vanity the sink is the real main spectacle, and changing it out can dramatically alter the look and feel of the vanity. Sierra Copper’s Hampton line of farmhouse sinks come in a wide variety of styles, and in some cases the scrollwork can even be custom designed to a pattern of choosing. Each one has its own personal flair, from the romantic heart-floral scrollwork above to the simpler, steamer-trunk style riveting of this Hampton Norwich.
4. From there, copper bathroom vanities get a little more spare. The Burlington vanity nixes the door and drawer paneling, favoring more visible wood over layers of finished copper. It keeps the copper countertop of the other two, though, and ups the ante with a copper vessel sink. Sierra Copper’s Remington vessel sink looks great with the rugged wood and weathered copper counter. Swap the Remington out with the Square Cazo sink and it switches from something bordering on modern to something much homier and more rustic. Reminiscent of old west style copper wash basins – with the little loop “carry” handles to prove it – this sink is much more casual, and will make the vanity look like a homey, old-fashioned wash stand.
5. For those who really love the idea of a copper sink, but find copper bathroom vanities a little overwhelming, a vanity with a wood tone that compliments the color of aged copper would be a good choice. HomeThangs.com offers the Madison bathroom vanity by Sierra Copper, which is made out of the same wood and with the same weathered, rustic finish as their other copper bathroom vanities, but without any copper insets and an optional wood vanity top rather than a copper one.
