Though the finish may vary from year to year, metal accents are always in fashion. Sometimes, it’s the old-school charm of the copper accents, while other times it’s the futuristic vibe of the brushed nickel accent. In 2018, a combination of chrome and mirror décor objects have been taking the world by storm. Their trendy blend is definitely something to behold. We are excited to share that we’ve compiled a short guide on how to use metal and mirror accents to upgrade your home interiors!
1. Impressive stripes
Using metal and mirror accents requires being as frugal with their application as possible. They have the biggest impact when they’re used strategically in the places that matter the most. You’ll have to pin down the perfect location that may have the maximum exposure within the interior design. The two stripes in the media wall in this image are a great example of such a location.
2. Light fixtures & corridor walls
Light fixtures are the best way to articulate metal accents, mostly because they’re statement design elements that are used solo most of the time. On the other hand, corridor walls are the perfect canvas to install mirror frames, otherwise they’ll just seem empty. You can even clad them over in-built cabinets to get maximum effect.
3. Hardware and appliances
Kitchen hardware like sinks, drawers and handles along with all the snazzy appliances are the perfect way to introduce metal accents within the space. Most of these objects are small, but they can make for some impressive design elements if you pick the right style and design in your execution.
4. Mirrors and more
Introducing metal and mirror accents in a bedroom can be truly challenging, but once again you can use light fixtures and hardware to your advantage. As for mirrors. You can get creative. You can either use complicated mirror-cutwork screens or go for a full-scale cladding on a feature wall. if you want something small, then installing one of a single wardrobe door leaf can also be a good idea.
5. Miscellaneous accessories
Sometimes, miscellaneous accessories can be your best bet at introducing beautiful metal accents in an otherwise simple interior design. these can be anything from wall lights to the chrome legs of the telescope featured in this image!
