Whether you find something with a shiny stainless steel finish, or you prefer a more “industrial” look with a rougher finish on it, metals can really bring a room to life. Even subtle metal accents can give a room the perfect finishing touches, from the rustic and worn look to the more modern. Popular accents you might consider include:
- Hardware on cabinets and drawers
- Steel beams in the ceiling or around the edges of the room
- Metal brackets or pipes to support tables and shelving
- Visible duct work or other metal in the home
- Iron, steel, or other metal spindles or stair railings
Whether it’s the kitchen, bathtub, or sinks in other areas of the home, a backsplash can add color and personality to the space. Whether you decide to use a single sheet of shiny metal, several different varieties of metal, or a combination of metal and tiles or glass, you can create a beautiful mosaic with visual appeal.
Metal Garden Ornaments
Whether you decide to find some old metal “antiques” or you want to have something specially made, garden ornaments are a great way to add depth and interest to the outdoors. You can find metal containers to plant flowers in, or have a custom metal archway built to welcome guests to your outdoor space.
Metal Lighting Fixtures
Lighting is a subtle way to bring life to any room. Boring lights can be instantly transformed by adding interesting metal fixtures, and you can coordinate several areas of your room by bringing them together with metal fixtures. The right metal lighting can add grandeur and formality to a room, or bring in a more modern and casual vibe.
While it may sound a little strange at first, bringing in metal furniture is tremendously popular today. Re-purposing old office furniture, painting benches for your entryway or outdoor living area, or building your own metal tables and accent pieces from what you can find at the steel supermarket at Wasatch Steel can be a great departure from the more traditional (and often more expensive) furniture options.
Adding embossed paneling to the ceiling has been common in libraries and entertaining buildings for many years, and now it’s something you can bring to your own home. You can find panels with a faux finish to look like precious metals, or bring out the industrial look of stainless steel. Whether you want to create a spacious and stately room or a cozy ambiance, metal can help.
