How to Integrate Zinc into a Tiny Home

Zinc Top Weathered Oak Wood End Table

Zinc is a material that‘s not often considered to be integrated into a home. I agree, it‘s not a common home material, but I‘d like to show why zinc is a great material for all kinds of interior design, may it be as decor item or as furniture.

There are some points and details about zinc you might want to know before adding it to your home decor.

Originally used outdoors on the roofs for example zinc became more and more part of the interior design. Its versatility and natural finish makes it a perfect material for creative interior design creating that unique industrial-like style that so many love.

Zinc Rustic Metal Rectangle PlanterThe advantages of adding zinc into your tiny home are many. One of them is the sturdiness that comes with the material zinc. Having for example a planter made of zinc guarantees you many years of usage. Zinc holds up against daily wear and tear better than plastic or wood – wherever and in whichever form you add it to your home.

Another plus of zinc is its superior characteristic around hygiene and safety. It doesn’t matter if you add zinc as furniture or decor, it will be very easy to maintain and clean.

And last but not least, zinc looks so elegant and sleek creating just that feeling you might love about the industrial or zen style.

I read somewhere that adding that metal look to your home is hot. Interior design trend setters speak about it since years, and it‘s just getting more and more accepted and appreciated.

The metallic feel of zinc creates that certain contemporary look that owners of modern homes love so much. I also see zinc easily added to zen-like and minimalist styles. But zinc fits as well into a country style or rustic home. In my opinion zinc is even one important part to create that beloved rustic style.

Wouldn’t this just be perfect for a tiny house? I see zinc just everywhere, tiny house, small apartment, RV, houseboat, camper, every tiny living essentially. Find here three ideas of how you can add the material zinc with its creative and unique look to your home design.

I love these planters. I love the look of them. Very well made and will last for years. I wanted planters that didn’t bow out in the middle after planting my plants and this was just perfect for that.

Just as pictured. Very sturdy and well made.

This is a BEAUTIFUL light fixture. Heavy and solid and would work both indoors and out. My electrician commented that I must have spent a lot on my lights while he was installing it. I used two of them over open shelves in my kitchen and they look great.
