Mixed metals, green copper, and floral-embossed metal tiles are all making a comeback in 2015. Many homeowners are moving away from the sterile, “modern” interiors with off-white walls and passive décor. White is a refreshing color, but it does not feel like home to many people. As a result, interior designers and homeowners alike are turning to other methods for improving their home. Popular choices today include:
• Metal Tiles. Metal provides a great base for any room to begin decoration. Not only does it give a sleek look to any room in the house, it creates a personality for you and your home. Metal tile in particular comes in a large range of sizes, colors, and looks. The tiles have a host of designs to choose from, and the design is more interesting than the flat look of wallpaper.
• Mosaic. Mosaic tiles are one of the most popular. While they come in glass and ceramic, metal tile patterns look more sophisticated. Mosaics make for excellent patterns. Manufacturers are getting bolder, too. They are using computer software to create and etch designs. Some companies even allow homeowners to come up with their own custom designs.
• Stainless steel and tin. Stainless steel and tin are rising in popularity. They promise to last a lot longer than other kinds of building materials. Stainless steel is hardier and more resistant to corrosion, making it an excellent choice for bathrooms.
How to Decorate With Tin Ceiling Tiles
Rooms with metal tiles benefit heavily from antique-looking designs. This means for living rooms you want to select cozy browns. Think leather or faux-leather recliners. You might want to dust off the family grandfather clock for the entrance hall. Indoor patios or screened porches decorated with metal walls or ceilings work extremely well with wicker chairs. Wicker tables with glass tops or metal end tables work great, too.
Bathrooms work extremely well with large mirrors that have sturdy, decorated frames that take up the entire wall. If you have enough room, swap your wall tub with a standing tub. This makes the bathroom feel more like a spa, or even heightened class, depending on your look. Modern decorating still means minimalism. Instead of plastering a metal tiled wall with pictures, give it space to shine inside the home. Or use one portrait, and let it stand out amongst lighter metal. Only use a few pieces of furniture. With these simple additions and the allure of trending designs, you will wow your guests.
