Not-So-Heavy Metal: Getting the Galvanized Look

Solve Your Wall

Set the Table
Sunny days, balmy nights, and opportunities to entertain are just around the corner. To instantly refresh your look, layer galvanized chargers with brightly hued or all-white dinnerware. Or, for a more subtle change, consider a galvanized serving set, giving a rustic touch to any spread.

Update the Living Room
A pop of color makes a big statement, but a pop of visual texture can be even more powerful. On the coffee table, mix in a large galvanized tray to keep the setup organized and create a space to display your favorite pieces. Worried the look is a bit too edgy for you? Soften the style by mixing in soothing candles and fresh flowers to create an inviting vibe.

Take it Outside
With the weather warming, it’s time to dust off your outdoor digs to get set for entertaining alfresco. Start small, swapping out old pots for fresh galvanized planters; they’ll give the space a rustic-meets-modern feel that lasts season after season. Want to take it a step further? Set the mood for nights outdoors with galvanized lanterns, which look great in every kind of space.
