[fa icon="calendar"] 12/29/2020 / by Kaylee Beattie

Using metal panels is a great way to add texture and depth into your home, whether they’re used on the inside or outside. If you love the look of metal and want to bring it to your home, but maybe don’t want to fully commit to a roof or siding, or maybe you're not in need of a roofing or siding replacement, there are still plenty of ways to incorporate a bit of metal here and there!

Interior Applications


Probably one of our most popular ways to use metal on the interior of a home, metal wainscoting can totally transform a room. Wainscots are a great solution for mudrooms and children’s rooms or playrooms because they can protect your walls extremely well. Metal wainscot panels are also extremely easy to keep clean. No more scrubbing your painted walls!

Accent Wall

Adding a wall of metal panels can bring a pop of texture to any room without overpowering it. Accent walls make a wonderful contrast against wood floors and painted walls. They’re also a great way to add more light into a room because of metal’s reflective qualities!

Bars & Islands

Kitchens are one of the best rooms to incorporate metal into because of its easy-to-clean qualities. Creating a bar or kitchen island out of metal brings a fresh, new look into the heart of the home. Plus, the durability of metal will easily withstand the inevitable messes and scuffs from the kitchen!

Adding a fence to your property can enhance it in more ways than one. Not only does a fence keep your property protected, but it can give your kids and pets freedom.
