In the world of interior design and décor, trends are constantly shifting and changing to fit modern style. That can make it difficult for home owners to pick a certain style and run with it—especially if they’re indecisive or fall in love with multiple styles that don’t necessarily “go together.” However, there are some design elements that fit just as well with an urban, industrial aesthetic as they do a country farmhouse style. One of these elements is galvanized metal décor.
Galvanized metal is metal that has been put through a special process involving the application of zinc to the surface of the metal. This gives the metal a mottled and distressed look (also removing the typical metallic sheen) that makes it appear older than it is and also makes the metal stronger. This type of metal has been gaining popularity in the design industry for its versatility and ability to look good with many different styles of décor.
This type of décor, from galvanized metal wall décor to metal planters, is a great choice for many different rooms in your home. To give you some galvanized metal inspiration we’ve rounded up our favorite pieces featuring this design trend. Take a look and get inspired to add touches of this distressed metal in your own home.
