What is tin home décor?
Tin is a term that describes anything from reclaimed corrugated or galvanized metal, to shiny new sheet metal. The ways to use tin in home decor applications are pretty endless. Brand new tin is fun to use, as you can allow it to naturally age over time and change appearance. You can also use aged, reclaimed metal with no need to clean it up or make it look shiny. Aged tin has its own charm! New or aged, tin home décor will really update your home!

Tin also makes appealing wall décor. Tin panels are interspersed on the accent wall of this eclectic master bedroom in Houston.
Need a backsplash that perfectly accents a white or neutral kitchen? Try tin! Once again, I really love how it reflects light and makes spaces feel bigger.
A tin tub makes a rustic sink in a laundry room. The large size allows you to hand wash a lot of delicate items at one time. I’d also use it for a small pet’s bath time.Tin home décor can be used for almost anything!
