There are tons of creative ways to use metal panels inside. We’re here to show you a few of our favorite interior metal wall panel projects and how to creatively use metal panels inside your home!

Accent Walls

Long gone are the days of boring, painted walls. Accent walls are one of the best ways to incorporate metal panels inside your home because they spice up any room. Using metal as a wall can also help protect your home from damages and nicks. Plus, metal is easy to clean and very low maintenance — it’s a perfect choice for a kid's room or playroom!

Corrugated metal wainscoting adds texture and depth to the interior of your home. Wainscot is a great way to break up a wall, add protection, and give a home a pop of modern or rustic style. Bridger Steel offers wainscoting kits so you can easily install metal wainscoting into your home. Our kits are designed with the DIYer in mind, and include everything you’ll need for installation from the panels and trim to the bits and screws.

Entryways and Mudrooms

Entryways and mudrooms are often really hard to keep clean — shoes hit the walls, scuff marks happen, and of course, mud and dirt are always present. That’s why using metal in an entryway or mudroom is a perfect solution. Metal panels are easy to clean and it easily resist scuffing and scratching from shoes or boots being thrown. They also help break up a small area of the home, like an entryway, and can make it seem larger.

Bathrooms are the perfect room to incorporate metal panels. Since bathrooms are generally smaller, metal panels can help break up the room, add texture, and even highlight any natural light coming in, which makes the room seem larger. We’ve seen metal wainscoting, shower walls, and even just a simple metal accent be used on a bathroom in the interior of homes.
