Designing a ranch or farmhouse is all about creating classic, yet comfortable spaces. Interior spaces for this style of home incorporate white or soft natural colors to create relaxing and casual spaces. One of the many reasons this style is becoming so popular is the functionality and ability to personalize every space.
Big, open concept kitchens are a staple in farmhouse designs. These rooms are not complete without large islands for everyone to gather around. To add character and charm, designers and homeowners are using Corrugated or Flat metal panels to surround these islands. This makes the island the focal point of the kitchen while creating a cohesive space between the different materials throughout the kitchen. Galvanized Corrugated metal can also be used as backsplashes to replace traditional tile, while creating fun magnetic boards to keep recipes and make for easy clean up.
Use metal in bathrooms to replace traditional shower liners and tile. This application requires choosing the right panel and finish. A popular finish we are see in bathrooms is Galvanized or Galvalume. These panels look great and can add more light to darker bathrooms with their reflective properties. For smaller DIY projects, covering wood cabinet doors is always a fun, unique accent.

Adding a metal wainscot to the interior of a home is a great way to add texture and dimension to a space. When applied below wood walls, a metal wainscot with a metallic finish like Galvanized or Galvalume can help brighten a room with its reflective properties.
Using a metal wainscoting inside a farmhouse style home is a great way to protect your walls for years to come. They work well in all types of rooms, too. Dress up a wall and break up simple painted walls with a pop of texture.

In smaller spaces, designers recommend using full wall accents that don't break up the eye line. Corrugated Galvanized metal creates beautiful contrast between the typical white walls and trim of farmhouses for traditional rustic charm. When combined with rich barn wood or rough wood floors, metallic-finish metals can help create welcoming and warm spaces. Not only can a metal be a beautiful accent, but it is durable and will help keep your walls protected.
Depending on the theme of your home, interior corrugated panels can be used in a variety of different ways. Metal naturally complements wood, stone and other common household materials. Oftentimes, bare Corrugated metal panels can be applied to ceilings paired with wooden beams for a rustic, aged appearance. Lighter colors or metallic finishes are also popular for interior farmhouse style because of their reflective properties that can help make a room brighter and more airy.

When using metal as an interior panel, inspiration and creativity seem to be the only boundaries. Adding a little farmhouse flair to your home can be as easy as adding a barn door covered in Corrugated steel or surrounding a fireplace with Flat panels. These are great DIY projects that won’t break the budget while still adding beautiful, rustic charm to your farm or ranch house and totally elevating the space.
