9. Sheathe Walls with Embossed Metal

Evoking tin-tile ceilings in Victorian-era houses, patterned metal also looks lovely on walls. Sold in 24-by-24-inch panels, it's perfect for creating 4-foot-high wainscoting.

Cost: About $300 for a 6-by-8-foot room. Powder-coated and moisture-resistant embossed metal panels in an array of colors and patterns, about $12 each; americantinceilings.com
