Give Your Home an Industrial Makeover with Metal Roofing
Roofing sheets can be used in a number of ways to help give your home a more industrial look and feel.
Adding an industrial look to your home is all about combining unpredictable and gritty urban elements into your home and breaking away from the traditional housing mould. By strategically fitting and placing metal sheets inside and outside your property, you can bring a modern chic element into otherwise clean and classic home designs.
The team at Ideal Roofing has compiled a list of great tips on how to turn your seemingly innocuous roofing sheets into the lynchpin of your new industrial property.
Upcycle Old Furniture
Upcycling is the practice of repurposing old, unused things around your home into new and exciting household items. A great way to add an industrial feel to any home is by upcycling old furniture by adding metal roof sheets for that chrome urban aesthetic that you’re going for. Taking a more traditional, upmarket piece and transforming it into steampunk-esque home décor using metal roofing will give your pad the fresh, industrial look that you’re after.
Using materials in your home for functions that they are not originally intended can add a new element to any space. For instance, use metal sheeting to create utensil holders in your kitchen or use them to craft a magnetic frame board that gives off industrial vibes.
Carefully Plan Your Design
One of the keys to maintaining an industrial look is to carefully plan and design your home while still maintaining a sense of listlessness. Carefully curate your home by choosing the right location for your metal sheeting. Make sure that your additions are in a place that will be seen while still not making it too obvious to the naked eye. Ensure that it doesn’t look like a centrepiece, while still not seeming like an afterthought.
Use Roofing Sheets as a Contrast
By using metal roofing as an accent against more traditional furniture and décor, your home will get a fresh shakeup that guests will adore. Take areas of your home that are on the posh side and add a roofing sheet to give them the slight tinge of grunge that you desire.
