For movie-loving Dads, a home theater is a great addition to the home. You can update your own family room with Metrie moulding, trim and baseboards, for a more finished, open and modern living space.

For Book Lovers

Maybe your Dad is more of a book collector and likes the feel of turning pages and owning his favorite novels. Father’s Day might be the perfect time to update the look of his home library.

Building your own set of bookshelves at home is easy with Metrie’s vast assortment of products. DIYers can select from a full menu of shelving, moulding and trim from Metrie; some Metrie products even come pre-painted to make projects move along more smoothly.  A simple bookcase is a great way for all of Dad’s books to stay organized and on display in just a single weekend. 

Or if Dad already has a bookshelf but it’s looking a little tired, give it a facelift.

For a fun weekend project, consider adding to your entryway, laundry area or mudroom. By painting the area a fresh white, adding shiplap panels from Metrie, and providing storage and seating, this mudroom becomes a great transition area in the home.

When Dad (or anyone) gets home from a long hike or an intense workday, he can stop for a moment, take off his shoes and breathe before joining the rest of the family. Details like flowers and soft pillows help to make this space more visually appealing and add a touch of comfort.

For Working-From-Home Dads

Help create the perfect working environment for Dad by turning an extra room into his office or updating the current office.
