Until recently copper was a material that you might mostly have associated with traditional heritage style interiors (think Downton Abbey style kitchens full of copper pans) or boutique hotel bathrooms, and of course plumbing! Now however it's now popping up all over the place in fresh new ways.
The old water mill conversion I stayed at while on holiday in Wales a couple of weeks ago had a stunning copper clad modern extension, and it got me thinking about ways of incorporating copper into my own home, so today I'm featuring 10 different ideas using copper piping. Many of them are affordable and fairly simple to achieve and should be within the reach of anyone with some basic DIY skills, but if you're not feeling up to it you could always call in a plumber.
I'll take the copper clothes rail please!
