How to Use Corrugated Metal in Home Decorating

Use corrugated metal in-home decorating to add an industrial touch to your interior design style. It is a material that is traditionally used for exterior remodeling projects but fits well into contemporary and modern
 spaces inside of your home as well. It can be cut down to various sizes and is not hard to work with if you are handy. You may have to seek professional carpenter assistance if you are not confident in your DIY skills, especially for larger indoor project ideas using this material.

Materials Needed:
Metal cutting tools
Industrial strength glue
Display cabinets
Art supplies

In the Bedroom
Make a custom headboard made out of the metal. Attach a sheet of it to the wall or to a sheet of plywood using screws and industrial strength glue.

In the Kitchen
Use corrugated metal for the back-splash in your kitchen. Attach it securely with industrial strength glue.

In the Living Room
Install it behind open shelving on walls or in the back of custom bookcases and display cabinets. Attach it with metal glue that is meant to adhere to wood.

In the Dining Room

Apply it to furniture pieces for an industrial interior design feel in the same way you would to bookcases or other shelves. For example, even a traditional armoire can be made to look contemporary if you cover the sides with the shiny metal.

All Over Your Home
Create your own custom artwork using corrugated metal. Decorating with the material in this way is easier as you can be as abstract as you want.
