Interior wainscoting has been around for many years for a reason. Traditionally homeowners and designers use interior metal wainscot to add texture and dimension while creating beautiful accents. Now an increasingly popular trend is to use wainscoting in small spaces to visually enhance a rooms size. When run horizontally, these accents can create the illusions of more space with long, clean lines. When vertically run, wainscot will draw the eye up, giving rooms a much taller appearance.
Mixing metal with different elements such as wood and stone can add visual depth to a space. Interior designers encourage mixing different materials to create contrast, yet cohesive spaces. A common trend is to mix interior metal wainscot with wood trim, floors, or accent walls. The warmth of the wood combined with the coldness of metal creates a well balanced space.
Interior metal wainscoting isn't just for homes. Use metal as wainscoting for shops, garages, and barns to create durable interiors and maximize spaces. The reflective properties of metal will work with industrial lighting or natural sunlight to create bright, open space. With easy installation and maintenance, metal is a top choice for industrial buildings.
