Good question. The metal is held about 3-1/2" above the floor. The floor is a large, single sheet vinyl flooring that coves up onto the wall and goes up behind the sheet metal.

The metal is similarly held away from the ceiling, where the glossy, grey painted ceiling color descends the wall behind the metal.

thanks -- that makes sense. I assumed the metal panel went all the way to the floor and couldn't envision how it was finished off. interesting maneuver!

The walls are covered in corrugated galvanized sheet metal. But the ceiling is painted in gray semigloss paint.

The material on these walls is galvanized sheet metal. It tends to show water marks, and those marks will not be removable. You may be able to get sheet stainless steel which would be better, or possibly use a metallic type sheet good in the Formica Line. For metal, try a local sheet metal fabricator, which might be anything from a Heating and Sheet Metal company (sheet metal is used largely in making HVAC duct work) or an ironworks shop that does a lot of complicated sheet metal forming.

Is it steel? Or tin?

I noticed you mixed corrugated metal with wood on the outside of the house. Are ALL the walls in the powder room corrugated metal, or is one of them wood? Just curious.

Tin Shower Walls: How to prevent moisture problems? - Mr. Lym - I want to use corrugated tin like this in a Bath I'm doing, and use it in the shower. Have been told that moisture will get behind the tin and cause problems. How can this be done without worrying about moisture problems behind the tin? It's an old house with tongue & groove wall boards; I planned to put tile backer on the shower walls just as I would if putting ceramic tile up. Can you steer me in the right direction? Thanks very much!

In the case of exterior use, the fasteners more or less keep water from penetrating their puncture points through the exterior membrane, be it felt or Tyvek or whatever. And what little moisture that would get through the membrane puncture, might then collect in the substrate be it plywood or OSB etc. Depending on the climate, that might or might not be an issue. I am in San Francisco where such water intrusions can dry out without prolonged damage (e.g. molds) as long as the exterior layers are breathable enough, e.g. ship lapped metal siding.

However in a shower enclosure, humidity may not allow a drying out of small amount of water and lead thus to mildew and dry rot. You could try self healing waterproof membranes perhaps Bituthene or set the fasteners up to embed in some kind of blocking that itself is over the membrane but does not penetrate it, etc epé wood strips glued to the membrane. Year ago I did a wood shingled shower waterproofed in this manner, and except for the water aging on the cedar shingles, it was waterproof for several decades until the house was remodeled. There were not leaks. The contractor was a pro.

Stainless steel corrugated panels are available. Search "corrugated stainless steel" and you will find several suppliers. James River Steel seems to have the capabilities to make it in various styles. Yes it might cost more, but it would outlive you and your house. If you back them with a waterproof membrane water will stay in the shower and not get in your walls.

using galvanized metal as a wainscoat on interior wall - have heard that the metal buckles in the middle, only going up 32 inches connecting to wallboard of some type. Thank you

It depends. This metal is corrugated and hence can stand vertically with bending for quite a height. If you are using a flat sheet, it will depend on the thickness of the metal and or how it is secured to its' vertical surface.

i live in delaware, what is the brand name for this type of siding, - i intend to use this type, if i can find it, for a wainscoting, on a water front property with a block wall foundation. the first floor, just got flooded out. so next time, i intend to have a 4-5 foot wainscoting, over the block wall first floor. if it get flooded again, the flood insurance may require the first floor not be used as a living space, then it would a garage storage area. roght now their is a small kitchern, living room, family room, bedroom, and utilities room. this bathroom shows the exact type of metal siding i would like. nice job.

It's pretty groovy in the house as well.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Designs for Living: Heavy Metal in Home Decor
Break out of the drywall box by repurposing your building materials. Exterior roofing meets interior walls to create a unique spin on a powder room.
Shawn Gauthier added this to A Periodic Table of Design Elements
Or, try tin on the walls. Wrapping this bathroom in corrugated sheet metal made from tin gives it a hip, downtown industrial feel.
Becky Harris added this to Industrial Strength Bathrooms
2. Corrugated metal. These walls give this bathroom a machine-made look. They reflect light and add unexpected texture to this masculine room.
Natalie Myers added this to 8 Ways to Style Up the Man Cave
Essential 6: Construction materials. Work in some masculine materials that refer to the construction site or rugged spaces. Corrugated steel, concrete floors, exposed brick, and stone are all good candidates.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Textured Walls: Inspiration Beyond Paint and Wallpaper
And still on the industrial theme, corrugated metal siding is brought indoors to add rippling texture and shine.
