If your decorating style can be described as rustic chic, industrial farmhouse, cottage, or any of those in between, read on to discover some budget ways to incorporate galvanized metal in your decor.
Galvanized metal is the workhorse of a variety of decorating styles — for those not in the the know, galvanization refers to the process of coating steel or iron with a zinc coating to ward off rust. Not only does it work with the urban industrial farmhouse style, but it can also fit into a more traditional rustic style home as well — both indoors and out. The benefits of galvanized metal home furnishings, accessories, and accents are that it is sturdy and can take a lot of abuse (ideal for homes with kids and pets), but it’s also a great budget option as well.
It’s also possible to source galvanized finds at flea markets, thrift stores, and estate sales, making it a sustainable and affordable choice.
