Would copper handles go well with grey kitchen?

We are going for the Bodbyn grey ikea kitchen (after a lot of deliberation!). Thinking about handles now and DH would like to have copper handles like this but I'm a bit concerned they won't go. We will get a door and handle in advance to see but given that neither of us are blessed with much style, I thought it wouldn't harm to ask...!

Pictures attached, I hope!

Yes they do 'go'. You need a copper light or something to tie it in smile

Yes, they would look gorgeous!

Add a copper light fitting as MovingToParadise suggested, and the odd accessory here and there. Perhaps a copper fruit bowl, copper framed picture and copper storage jars for coffee etc.

I'm thinking copper highlights too. Grey units, grey/white marble egf3ct laminate worktop, white metro tiles with grey grout and copper pull cup handles and knobs. Kettle recently broke so bought a copper one

thanks for the feedback, clearly DH is better at interior design than me. Liz79 we're going to have very similar kitchens!

Oh I've come on here to search for almost exactly this answer..

We're putting in a grey Bodbyn kitchen to our new extension in the next few weeks and have been planning on cooper handles. I bought one door a while ago and ordered a handle from an eBay seller. I've been looking at it for a while and now am wondering whether brass would be nice?

Think it's a case of too much time to think about it all!

Have attached a pic of my door and the tiles I am planning for splash back which I toted up to the flooring shop the other day!

Oops the picture doesn't have the tiles in- ignore that bit. Am going for these though. Want quite a rustic vibe..

inneedofaliein could you let me know where you found those copper handles? I quite like the chunkier look! Thanks,

and also, in answer to your question I think that copper handle looks really good, although I have seen some pictures on google images with brass handles which also looked good. It's definitely a case of too much time to think about things, now we've agreed on copper I'm agonising over handle style.

Where are those handles from? I love them and am looking for some like that!

Hi Trees the handles I put up at the top are from Magnet. You can go to a Magnet Trade and buy them (£3.50 I think). The other ones that were posted by inneed are, i think, from here www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRUSHED-COPPER-PEARL-FINGER-PULLS-CUP-HANDLES-KITCHEN-CABINETS-DRAWERS-/391548548044?hash=item5b2a1cb3cc:g:GQoAAOSwzgBY1Vga
