There are so many ways you can finish the interior and exterior of your metal structure once it is in place. To be honest, you can make it look just like a traditional stick-built home if you want to blend in. But for most consumers, they like to embrace the aesthetic of their steel building.
For starters, you can consider simply keeping the metal as is.

Prefer something that will blend in more with the neighboring buildings or simply provide a more traditional aesthetic?
