Copper Boosts Home Health

According to Applied and Environmental Microbiology, metallic copper surfaces kill microbes on contact. While researchers and scientists are examining the impact this can have in hospitals and group living facilities, designers and homeowners are embracing its green, healthy, and stylish benefits.

The warm tones of copper can be integrated into subtle-yet eye-catching features of fireplaces, backsplashes, and accent walls. But to best take advantage of its antimicrobial benefits, install copper hardware (door and cabinet handles), faucets, sinks, countertops, and railings.
