An inspired life based on Victorian perspectives is quite possible! Install decorative tiles on the ceiling and leave the walls lined. High ceilings and metal installations would not really be necessary. Use metal tile to bring light to the walls, such as in the bathroom and the backsplash in the kitchen, living room and dining room.
As early as the Civil War, square pressed metal tiles became fashionable. Instead of heavy plaster, these lightweight, fire-resistant tiles were cheaper. They remained popular in geometric shapes for many decades until the Great Depression, when plain white drywall ceilings were extended.
Pressed pewter is being reimagined in old Victorian residences due to its style and presence. Lofts look inviting with metal tile and exposed brick along with wood. However, we recommend not using tiles on the ceiling.
If you want the vintage look in your home, read on to discover some ideas with metallic tiles to liven up the environment.
Get to work in the kitchen
Install Castle Metals to get the antique copper look. Build a sleek Victorian stove backsplash or sink. If you want a non-traditional look, go for metallic signatures paired with smooth mosaic tiles on the backsplash. Copy the style of the 1930s with the Metallica series for an Art Deco backsplash.
Village Bend in Olivo 6 x 6, 4-1 / 4 x 4-1 / 4 with 1 x 8 Torello
Metal Signatures on Antique Iron Lattice Deco 4-1 / 4 x 4-1 / 4
Chateau Ogee Liner 1-1 / 2 x 12 and Trellis Liner 3 x 12
Why not copy the look of the tin roof and install it on the ground? Study some old paintings and place various motifs in the center of the floor with a smooth tile border. It could be the reverse arrangement on the kitchen counter.
Time for the dining room makeover
While some people want white dining rooms, the Victorian metal tile will make it cozy yet dark. Coordinate the colors aesthetically, while exotic rugs and dark wood colors would be great. Metal embossed tiles will add decorative touches like wood paneling to the bottom wall. Lighting like vintage chandeliers would work well in a gray color scheme.
A bath to appreciate
Bring a serious note with metal tile under the shower space and on the shower backsplash. Other options are art strips with horizontal pewter and bronze tiles, and an edge with raised tiles that enclose a smooth tile center.
Fancy the distressed bronze Jardin wall / floor trim, sand powder natural stone corners, and Antalya Dark country tiles on the floor?
Renovate the wet bar scene
Perhaps a brushed stainless steel hexagonal mosaic tile backsplash would work just fine. Brushed stainless steel would contrast well with light wood cabinets, white walls, and beige rugs. Wet bar backsplashes would also benefit from Metal Signatures Aged Iron Tumbled Stone, using the same tiles on the floor. Pair it with the white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, refrigerator, and stools.
Metal tile never went out of style, dating back to Victorian times. Enjoy timeless quality for decades to come.
