Using Metal to Decorate Your Home!
Using different metals is simple, and it can add a bit of additional excitement to your house. Designer secrets for changing things up a little so that all the various metals seem to work together and do not appear to be too complicated are available.
Are you ready to experiment with metals? Then let’s get started!
There are several ways of attaching metal and making a great decorative item. You can weld or even glue pieces of metal together to make artistic pieces. Are you wondering how to glue metal? Well, yes, you can glue metal. This method is gaining popularity in domestic and industrial applications.
While metallics are prevalent throughout your house, do not overlook the equally essential decorative metals used throughout your interiors. Keep in mind that the attention is in the details.
Wrought iron decorative railings and banisters are an excellent opportunity to display this magnificent metal. Additionally, metals can be used in cabinetry door handles, door hardware, and even outside door hardware. You will be amazed at how metallic finishes are becoming more popular in many areas of your house.
If there was ever a time when elegance could be incorporated into interior design, it is now!
Using highly reflective furnishings such as mirrored dressers and tables and bright colors to mimic the “Art Deco” period in the contemporary age, mirrored furniture can be traced back to the Hollywood Regency style of the 1920s. Bring mirrored furniture into your home, and you will instantly add a touch of glitz without even trying!
This metallic trend is often overlooked, but once you see it, you will wonder how you ever lived without knowing about this beautiful design. The use of ornamental wrought-iron in a railing feature is stunning.
Chrome and nickel are extremely fashionable right now in plumbing fixtures for the kitchen and bathroom. And they continue to be the mainstay of houses ranging from basic in size to luxurious and wealthy in their furnishings.
Whatever your design taste, there are several plumbing fixture types to select from, from classic forms with elaborate details to minimalist modern models for your contemporary house and everything in between.
Stainless steel appliances continue to be at the top of the list of things that kitchen owners want for their gourmet kitchen applications. With mirrored furniture, the Hollywood Regency design is brought back to life.
Silver Metallic Finishes
Kitchen, bath, and interior designers have overwhelmingly favored and selected the silvery metallic family of metals, including nickel, aluminum, chrome, and stainless steel, as the most popular and requested finishes.
These silvery metals are long-lasting, have excellent reflecting properties, and can be finished in several ways. This ranges from a basic brushed finish to a highly polished finish that sparkles in any light. Silver-tone plumbing fixtures and appliances are still at the top of the metallic finishes that homeowners are interested in installing.
While the appeal of using this flexible material as a finish is well-known, the ability to bend and mold the ribbed metal into curvilinear shapes offers up new possibilities that you may have overlooked before.
This ceiling shows how a single material can impart a whole different sense of design when coupled with metallic treatments. Who said corrugated metal could be used only for roofing? The architectural design on the ceiling is really breathtaking.
Suppose your decorating style leans toward a more natural and rustic approach to metallic finishes. In that case, you may want to consider the attractiveness of corrugated metal as a possible option.
According to a report, designers have utilized corrugated metal for walls, ceilings, sides of cabinets, imaginative accent walls in bedrooms, and decorating macho bathrooms in recent years.
To express your enthusiasm for recycled and reused materials, consider using corrugated metal in your design. Do you like a rustic and recycled style for your home décor? When it comes to wall treatments, corrugated metal is a good choice.
Gold and Brass
Although you may like wood and natural finishes when it comes to decorative accent pieces, do not be afraid to experiment with gold-painted furniture or even gold-leafed painted décor as a unique way to give a creative touch to your decorative accent pieces.
Incorporating golden-hued lighting fixtures into your house together with darker colors can give your space a dramatic flair. Chandeliers, wall sconces, and pendant lights are examples of lighting fixtures that are showing off their new golden tones.
Remember when brass and gold were popular interior metals in the 1980s, but then the trend slowed and eventually disappeared? Gold and brass have made a comeback, although in a subtler form. They are now popular in wallpaper, furniture, ornate cabinet handles, and other decorative items.
To give a touch of glamor to your bedroom, consider putting golden metallic wallpaper with a little shine behind your bed as an eye-catching accent wall. Décor in gold hues and tones is like finding a new home in contemporary homes, including furniture and lighting.
Copper and Its Shades
While fireplaces are traditionally surrounded by natural rock, brick, or tile, there is a growing tendency to incorporate copper into the fireplace area and other materials. You may want to consider utilizing recycled copper sheets from previous home improvement projects. Or you might want to find an artisan or a hood welder (for kitchens) who specializes in copper trim applications for your interior design.
The appeal of rich copper is attractive at any time of year, but the fall season seems to be the best time to bring out the golden color in your home’s kitchen. The solution to your warm aesthetic queries in your mind may be found in copper. It can be found in anything from hammered copper worktops to bespoke kitchen backsplash tiles. Look for a combination of copper and mosaic tiles for the kitchen or bathroom.
Forged metal’s physical characteristics, such as strength, hardness, and ductility, are superior to the base metal. All forging methods result in the same high-quality material with minimal porosity and a high strength-to-weight ratio. And metallic décors are becoming a trend. So you can use them to make great décors around your home! Good luck!
