Architecture encompasses both function and aesthetics. One way that designers achieve a sleek, modern look is by incorporating decorative perforated metal in their creations. While serving functional purposes — such as providing shade and sound control — decorative metal sheets simultaneously add elements of depth, texture and color to a structure.
The use of decorative sheet metal is increasingly popular in architecture and design. From bars to balconies to building facades, it gives a beautification boost to both interiors and exteriors. Here are a few more structural elements that can feature perforated metal when something beyond the ordinary is desired:
- Lattices. Traditional wooden lattices have long been popular features in design — think of gardens, patios and porches — but metal lattices are a popular choice for those seeking more strength, durability and visual elements that stand out.
- Screens. A metal screen provides just the right balance of privacy and transparency. As a decorative feature, it also allows in light while casting shadows that are decorative in their own right.
- Ceiling panels. Because perforated metal can be curved and fitted for customized design, it is an excellent option for decorative ceilings. With the added benefit of improving acoustics, a perforated metal ceiling can be a stunning addition to any kind of building.
- Stairs. When you think of stairs, you may think of function first. Using perforated metal can increase their decorative role in a way you had not previously imagined.
