Do you get excited when you see barn wood, rusty metals, or other materials saved from old buildings and used in unconventional ways? I certainly do, which is why it’s no surprise I have become obsessed with the idea of using corrugated metal in interior design.

Created in the 1820s and typically found on roofs, corrugated sheet metal is an affordable and sustainable building material that offers flexibility when decorating a home. You can use reclaimed metal {or fake the rusty appearance} and pair it with wood for a more rustic vibe, or use other variations to create a more industrial, eclectic, or modern look. Painting it is another option, which I especially love when used on exteriors.

I’ve become inspired by all of the creative uses for it inside the home, and the fact that it’s light-weight, budget-friendly, and corrosion-resistant means you will absolutely see it pop up in our RV renovation.

Whether you want to add just a splash of texture or deck out an entire room, I hope you feel inspired by the photos below. And if you prefer something less permanent there’s always corrugated wall art or light fixtures. Oh, the possibilities…
