Corrugated Metal Ideas for the Bathroom

I always thought corrugated metal was for sheds and other outdoorsy applications, but much to my surprise and delight, I have seen it used for interior applications too! There are many chic ways to use corrugated metal ideas for the bathroom. Corrugated or galvanized metal as it is sometimes called, is an economical medium that can be treated to prevent rust, which means it can be incorporated anywhere in a bathroom.


The metal can be cut straight across and capped with a decorative element like wood, or cut with a scalloped edge or any other ornate profile depending on the look you wish to achieve. Whether you choose a vertical or horizontal installation will also vary the look.


My favourite designs soften the prominent lines in the corrugated metal with feminine finishes to create a modern balance. Add an elegant chandelier, a pretty mirror, a pair of decadent sconces and other soft touches to create balance. Here are some examples of why I love corrugated metal:



Play up the silver when working with corrugated metal ideas for the bathroom using other shimmering elements. Silver goes with nearly everything, which means you can either go stark white and silver or add colour. I see soft pastels like ballerina tones of pale, pale pink or barely there blue, but that’s just me. If you want to go bold, go bold. Go bold or go home!!
