So there’s only one week left and then it’s officially Spring, if you can believe it. It’s also the time of year that a lot of us are thinking about renovating or improving our homes, whether it’s a large project or a small project.
If you are undertaking a large renovation or extension, then one of the materials that you will probably most definitely use will be steel. But have you considered using it in areas other than the construction stage.
Steel and Metal have been fast becoming popular, and people are using steel in more prominent areas, here are some fab examples,
Metal Windows and doors have been around for years, but were mostly used in factories and industrial units. However, they are fast becoming popular in the residential and commercial markets, and its easy to see why. These elegant frames can really add to a space.
If you are looking for something a little bit more unconventional, then why not consider a large metal door. We particularly love this barn style door.
Again, metal stairs are becoming increasingly popular, and they make for a very beautiful feature.
We have been integrating metal into our furniture designs for the past couple of years, with great success. Not only is it a very durable material, but it is also very versatile and interesting. Check out these fab designs:
This table, chairs and shelving (below) are from a fantastic Italian company, called Formabilio, that make really quirky but beautiful furniture. We came across them recently but we are totally addicted. And they ship to Ireland… 🙂
If you are still unconvinced, then mark my words, metal is not going anywhere.
