Transform Your Home With These Tin Tile Design Ideas
April 3, 2014
Creating a warm and inviting space for your home can seem like a daunting and time consuming task — one that many would shy away from. But unique design doesn’t have to involve huge and costly renovation projects .Sometimes, the littlest changes can make the biggest impact. Tin tiles can be used in a variety of ways to create a sophisticated and timeless element to your home. Without breaking the bank or tearing down walls, we’ve identified three simple DIY projects to get you started on your spring home remodel.
Redefine ItWhen it comes to redefining a space, using tin tiles in the kitchen can be a great place to start. Besides ceiling and backsplash installations, you could also use tin tiles to trim an island. To brighten the room and redefine how you entertain, consider choosing silver tin panels. You’ll love how the island immediately shines in the light and becomes a gorgeous focal point.
Frame ItUse tin tiles as a subtle way to accent your home’s favorite features. Try the 6-inch or 12-inch repeating granite-colored tin tiles along the windows of your sunroom, bedroom, or kitchen. The creamy, earthy tones will complement the natural light from the windows without distracting the eye from other design elements in the room. Simply use the Nail-up installation type to apply. After you see the transformation, you’ll never want to use drab, dreary curtains ever again.
Tin accents on bookshelves and curio cabinets can easily transform a room’s overall look and feel.
Revamp itBesides adding tin to your home's features, you could also use tin tiles to accent and refurbish your favorite furniture pieces. Revamp those end tables in your living room by adding tin tiles on the top and covering with a fresh coat of paint. Or, create an old world vibe in your study by adding Pattern 21 in Copper Brushed Bronze to the sides and base of your favorite bookshelf. The space will seem cozy, inviting, and personal — making it the perfect place to relax and unwind with a good book.
