Metallics such as silver, gold, and brass have reigned supreme in home design for the past several years. According to Pinterest, tin is the newest metallic to enter the inner circle of interior design. Searches on Pinterest using the word “tin” were up 563% year over year in 2018. Design experts say tin elements bring a pattern that is more subtle than colored tiles and wallpaper. Experts also say tin can bring harmony and variety to interior spaces. Here are several ways this metallic material can be used in interior designs around the home.
In the BedroomSpice things up in the bedroom with an eye-catching accent wall using large-format ceiling tiles in a variety of textures, patterns, and finishes, which can create a sleek, industrial look. Consider complementary metals and materials to make tin pop—mix and mingle silver, pewter, copper, chrome, and even ceramic tiles.
On the CeilingA pressed-tin ceiling can add a touch of elegance to a kitchen or dining room. Choose a shiny tin tile so light can reflect across the room and brighten up the space, and, hopefully, your mood.
As an ‘Urban’ AccentAchieve a decidedly urban look by creating a dramatic accent wall made of corrugated tin. Mix and match reclaimed and rusted corrugated metals to add texture and depth to the space—you can even add pops of color with rusty orange hues.
In the KitchenTransform drab wall spaces and add sparkle to the kitchen by incorporating a tin tile backsplash. Just like in other parts of the house, a kitchen backsplash made of tin can maximize light in the room and even give the impression of a bigger space.
