Many homeowners eschew the idea of metal ceilings, backsplashes, or flooring because they think it won’t be as decorative as they would like. But stamped tin tiles come in a variety of colors, patterns, and textures, making them some of the most unique decorative options available. Whether you are looking to add a modern touch or old-fashioned elegance to your interior design, guests will want to know where you found these tiles and how you came up with such good design ideas. Three great uses for stamped tiles are highlighted below to help you begin the journey toward impressing those guests – and yourself!
Use #1: Brightening Your Attic and Basement
The attic and basement aren’t the most popular rooms in your house, but they might be the most important. The air flow in these rooms regulates the temperature of your home. If your attic or basement is hot or cold, other rooms will be hot or cold, too. Additionally, attics and basements often function as important storage or entertainment spaces.
Use stamped metal tiles to create beautiful ceilings and statement pieces. The glossier the finish, the brighter your space will be. Metal tiles in a sunburst, floral, or star design can give the room a more natural feel. Plain tiles in colors like gold or red keep the attic and basement from looking dreary.
Use #2: Making Your Bathroom Relaxing
The bathroom is where many people go to relax, meditate, and enjoy a few moments of privacy. Naturally, bathrooms need a soothing aesthetic. This can be achieved by installing stamped metal tiles on the ceiling or wall. Rely on neutral colors such as silver or white to keep the room from being too loud and distracting. You can use everything from a crosshatch pattern, reminiscent of elegant church ceilings, to a simple four-leaf clover pattern.
If you want the bathroom to be especially relaxing, use unfinished tiles. While they require special treatment (an oil-based polyurethane primer with a rust-preventing adding made especially for metal), they won’t reflect lighting as harshly as finished tiles.
Use #3: Kicking Up Your Kitchen Décor
Metal ceilings and tiles are frequently used in the kitchen. The kitchen is the place people meet to eat, talk, and get to know each other, so it is a place you want your guests to notice. Use stamped tiles in patterns or colors that truly show off your decorative talents to create statement pieces or backsplashes. Whether designing around an Aztec or a Renaissance theme, the perfect stamped tin tiles are waiting to let your creativity shine.
