1. Furniture: Metal furniture pieces such as tables, chairs and shelving can add an industrial or modern feel to a space. Metals such as copper, steel, and aluminium are popular choices for furniture pieces. Metal laminates can add unique colours, textures and light reflections to a space where solid sheet metals wouldn’t be suitable due to weight, flexibility or durability. 

2. Decorative accents: Metal can be used to add decorative accents to a space. For example, using metals within wall art, sculptures and clocks can add a touch of sophistication to a room. When paired with woodgrains and colours, metal laminates can add a pop of light and texture to an existing scheme.
3. Lighting fixtures: Metal can be used to create stylish and unique lighting fixtures such as pendant lights, chandeliers and sconces. Metals like copper, brass, and gold are popular choices for lighting fixtures as they add warmth and elegance to a space.

4. Kitchen and bathrooms: Metals such as stainless steel and chrome are commonly used for faucets, sinks and accessories such as door handles. Solid metals alongside laminate worktops, furniture and cabinetry ensure your kitchen or bathroom space is durable and easy to maintain, ideal for high-traffic areas.

5. Architectural details: Large metal laminate sheets can be used to add architectural details to a space such as walls and doors to create a stunning focal point in a room and add character to a space. Metal laminates like those from Homapal, combine the texture and colour of metal with hard-wearing flexible and lightweight laminates making them ideal for these types of applications where a solid metal would be impractical.

When using metals in interior design, it's important to balance their use with other materials to create a cohesive and harmonious look. For example, pairing metals with natural materials such as wood or stone can create a beautiful contrast and add warmth to a space.
