Metal tiles can be a versatile way to add detail to any space. These tiles can go in bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, and of course kitchens. You can put them on ceilings, floors, walls even furniture. They can be shiny, painted, colorful or distressed. The pattern can vary from ornate baroque to linear art deco. The combinations are as limitless as your imagination.
New metal tiles can range in price from $12 to $60. Often you'll find less expensive older tiles at local flea markets and sometimes antique shops will sell tiles reclaimed from interesting spaces with a unique look.
It's hard to find enough used tile to cover a full ceiling or wall, but they can add a lot of character to a small space. Metal tiles can be placed on the top of a table to give a boring piece old world charm. Also, you can cut out the middle of a larger piece and turn it into a beautiful DIY antique picture frame or mirror. Some people love the sound of rain hitting a tin roof and install tin tiles over outdoor areas.
So the next time you pass a piece of metal tile that catches your eye, don't hesitate to snatch it up even if you don't know where to put it. Metal tiles are timeless pieces that can provide the inspiration for your next home improvement project.
