One of my favorite things about old Victorian-style homes are the tin walls that are in certain areas. They look so timeless, chic, and, if you ask me, completely rad. Imagine how pleased I was when I saw the tin wall trend while exploring the Parade of Homes this year. That can only mean one thing: tin walls are back and they’re more beautiful than ever. Take a look below at some of my favorite tin wall ideas, I know what I will be doing to my home this year!
Home Decor And Design: Tin Walls
No matter where you put your tin wall, there is one thing for certain: you have to make sure that your tin has a gorgeous pattern! The classic pattern is similar to the one photographed below, but there are even more options if you head to the hardware store today. Use a nail gun to install it at home. You can do so on a wall OR a ceiling. Pretty neat right?
Looking for something a little more rustic? Why not try installing a corrugated metal wall in your home? Though it looks rough (and like it might scratch you) there is a protective coating you can put over the top of it to keep everyone safe. I love what an edgy look this creates.
If there’s one thing that always look rustic and super chic, it’s galvanized steel. Don’t be afraid to use it as ceiling tiles, a backsplash, or even as wallpaper. It looks good no matter what. However, when decorating with this material, keep your accessories sparse. I think it’s best to let the metal do the talking!
Take a look at the antique wall tiles below, the paint is chipped so that it gives it a really neat effect, one that is similar to that of the Statue of Liberty! I think you could recreate the look yourself with some spray paint and vinegar.
Small tin tiles make for a great kitchen backsplash if you don’t want to commit to an entire wall. Consider a pattern like the one below, I think it is truly beautiful!
