We’ve highlighted corrugated metal’s abilities as but structural and decorative applications. One of the things we love to see is when it’s applied to both purposes. When you’re building or adding to your patio, consider corrugated metal panels as both sturdy, maintenance-free building materials and distinguished visual accents. Need some inspiration? Check out a few of these patio additions and discover how some creative builders have put rugged corrugated panels to use in beautiful ways.
Corrugated Metal Outdoor Kitchen
Corrugated panels make for a gorgeous outdoor kitchen that’s resistant to the heat coming off the grill as well as to the weather beating down. The awning will hold up against sun, ice, rain, and snow, and the backdrop will be easy to clean off when grease and soot make their way onto it. This build features wooden accenting and clean lines that make for a clean, traditional look. More modern color combinations or rustic finishes would completely change the aesthetics while maintaining the same functionality.
Corrugated Metal Patio Bar
This is a larger project than the relatively small outdoor kitchen setup above. This structure also combines wood and corrugated metal to achieve a similar style, and equally practical functionality. If you consider the cost of an equal area of wood, this bar saved hundreds of dollars by utilizing cost-effective corrugated panels, while still maintaining a strength and minimizing maintenance. No need to stain and seal this bar, though it will take a coat of paint if you so choose.
Corrugated Metal Patio Awning
Once again, corrugated metal’s resistance to the elements is put on display here. The material is far more durable than canvas, cheaper than wood, and will keep the patio below bone dry even in the heaviest rains. Once again, the visual element of the material has been leveraged to achieve a unique style that still manages to match the surrounding decor.
