Design Tip: Using Architectural Metal Panels to Elevate a Space

Whether you’re looking to add an artistic element, create privacy, hide an unsightly neighbor’s backyard, or vary an existing design palette by adding color and texture within a room - our custom, laser-cut metal products offer unique ways to enhance the look of any interior or exterior space with architectural accent panels.

Decorative panels elevate any residential or commercial project by offering custom metal solutions with a wide scope of uses that are only limited by your imagination. From room dividers and backyard privacy screens, to metal insert panels for fences, gates and doors, Architectural Grilles creates precision-cut perforated screens and panels (see examples below) that will become the focal point of the room - combining function with beauty.

Interior Applications:

For indoor use, our decorative screen panels can be laser cut from aluminum and powder coated to any color you choose, or if you are looking for a more decorative material option choose from brass or bronze in a variety of finishes. These products can be installed as a decorative room divider, infill panel inserts for doors, or to provide a unique element within an interior space such as custom furniture accents.

Exterior Applications:

Outdoor panels can be installed as part of a pergola, canopy, decorative fence/gate, or privacy screens to conceal mechanical equipment, systems or structures. For outdoor panels, we recommend using weathered steel, also known as COR-TEN steel, which has an increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion when compared to other steels. Another outdoor option is powder coated aluminum which can be finished in any color.
