According to professionals, a thicker, black-toned metal is ideal for the industrial style, while a thin cut with brass plating or gold paint evokes a classic aesthetic. But, in most cases, the locksmith is not used just for the look. The material also resolves issues related to the space available in the project.

In our projects, we have already used it as a structure for carpentry, in the design of furniture such as sideboards, beverage carts, coffee tables and shelves, with built-in lighting, serving as a lamp, among many others.”, reveal the architect Ana Cristina to the interior designer Juliana.

Despite this, it is necessary to pay attention to the final value of the project, as the sawmill can greatly affect the financial disbursement of the residents. One way to avoid breaking the budget is to apply black paint, which in addition to making the cost lower, is a good alternative for those who want personalized furniture and details, but do not want to invest in pieces signed by great designers. Thus, it is not necessary to give up the exclusive design or go beyond the budget.

According to the duo from Jade Arquitetura e Design, there is no limit to the use of metalwork: it can be present in all environments, from the entrance hall, to shelves and sideboards; in the living room, on coffee tables or side tables and even the service area, executing the design of a rod to support ironed clothes.

Another great advantage of this material is its versatility, which allows it to be easily combined with different elements. “It all depends on the project concept. It can work with light or dark wood, with stone or with more rustic coatings”, they say. Metal paint colors themselves present an immense range of possibilities. Despite black being the best value for money, gold, bronze and gray are equally interesting trends.”, emphasize Ana Cristina and Juliana.

In fact, joining with the joinery helps to improve the cost, as it is possible to create cleaner and lighter shelves. Without cabinet boxes and only shelves, the value of woodworking items tend to decrease. In addition, the mixture of the two elements is perfect to guarantee a unique proposal, full of personality.

The combination of metal and wood is common in private libraries, however, it is very important to pay attention to the weight of the books before specifying the thickness of the locksmith. To ensure that the shelf really supports the volume of items, the experts’ recommendation is to consider a safety margin in case of change in use over time or even the overload of copies, going beyond what was foreseen. initially.

When it comes to thickness, the secret really is this: understanding how that piece of furniture will be used. For example, on wide benches, 30x30mm metal can be used to support the load. In smaller pieces of furniture, it is already possible to go with 15x15mm. In narrow shelves, there is the possibility of executing the production with 20x20mm – always observing the weight of what will be placed in each one of them.
