One of the biggest design trends we’ve seen reappearing during the course of 2018 is rustic, country-style kitchens. Rustic style is becoming more and more popular again. If you’re looking at remodeling your kitchen, you should consider choosing rustic themes.
Fortunately, homeowners can provide rustic charm to their kitchen without having to break the bank with an extensive remodel. Metal ceiling tiles are an excellent choice, primarily because of their durability. Below, you’ll find tips on bringing a rustic charm to your kitchen by using metal ceiling tiles.
Where To Use Metal Ceiling Tiles In The Kitchen
Although you can use metal ceiling tiles anywhere in the room, we believe one of the best places to use them is the kitchen. That’s primarily because of their durability. Not only can you use them on the ceiling, but you can use tin tiles in numerous other places around the kitchen as well.
For example, many homeowners use metal ceiling tiles as a backsplash behind their stove. Tin tiles make for excellent backsplashes because they are easy to clean. While it can be difficult to remove grease from paint, you can remove tough cooking stains from tin ceiling tiles by merely wiping down the tiles with a damp rag. Additionally, metal ceiling tiles are fire-resistant. If a fire were to ever break out while you were cooking, having a backsplash made up of metal ceiling tiles could potentially help slow its spread, giving you time to put it out while keeping you and your family safe.
Metal ceiling tiles also make for amazing wall art. If you would prefer not to have an entire ceiling made up of the tiles, consider hanging one or two of your favorite tiles on the wall. Doing so could help add character and warmth to a room. Many homeowners find it awkward to hang pictures in a kitchen but also need ways to fill dead space on a wall. Metal ceiling tiles are an excellent choice to address this problem.
Additionally, metal ceiling tile wall art is a fantastic way to bring a room together. Many people tend to believe that a ceiling composed of tin tiles will stick out like a sore thumb from the rest of the room. Consider using similar tiles on the wall as you did on the ceiling, but change one aspect, such as the color or the design pattern. This will help your new tin tile ceiling with the rest of the kitchen seamlessly.
Lastly, you should consider using metal ceiling tiles as a memo board. Many families have memo boards hanging on a wall or on their refrigerator in their kitchen. Metal ceiling tile memo boards are not as unsightly as cork boards and can be incredibly durable as well.
What To Look For In A Rustic Theme
If you’re looking to create a rustic theme for your kitchen, there are a few criteria worth considering. Rustic kitchens tend to be filled with character and are noticeable because of how inviting they are. Rooms that feature rustic styles tend to feature time-worn accents that are quite charming.
When incorporating a rustic theme into your kitchen, you’ll want to keep an eye out for distressed or weathered finishes. You’ll want to consider using neutral and warm-toned colors. Additionally, you should look into using rich texture in your pieces. Fortunately, all of these design elements are possible when you use metal ceiling tiles.
