Complex window coverings have fallen out of favor making way for a more minimalist aesthetic. Here, reclaimed tin tops these windows perfectly and brings an element of the unexpected to this eclectic living room.


Vintage Metal Lockers

Versatile vintage metal lockers can be used in almost any room. Whether they serve as a sideboard in a dining room or as storage cubbies in your mudroom, they are the perfect industrial accent piece.

Metal Table

The beauty of a metal tabletop is that it is heat-resistant and is a breeze to clean after a dinner party. Metal is also easy to remove dents from if there’s ever a problem, making it a practical home decor material.



One bold way to incorporate metal into your home decor is to install it on the walls. Historically used shower walls, sheet metal is easy to cut making it a great backsplash or wainscot material if you’re not sure you want it covering an entire wall.

Cabinet Inserts

Upgrade your kitchen cabinets with attractive metal inserts. Complete how-to instructions are available in this tutorial.

Metal geometrics are making a huge splash in home decor. Placed on a tray, mantelpiece or on top of a stack of books, they add a modern twist. To showcase them perfectly, consider this custom-built bookshelf.


Laundry rooms and bathrooms, once strictly utilitarian, are now among the most sought-after rooms to renovate and decorate. New or repurposed metal tubs make functional yet fashionable sinks in this bathroom.

Metal stair railings and balusters in this home serve a purpose for safety while beautifying the space as a large metal sculpture.



Metal furniture can be comfortable. This sofa is a fitting example of how the industrial style can feel warm and inviting.
