How To Achieve An Industrial Look

06 February 2018

Read more

One of the most prevalent trends in interior design in recent years is that of Industrial design.

Many design-centric homeowners are opting to style their space by the stripped back, raw and impactful rules of Industrial design.

Perhaps fuelled by an increased national consciousness focused on the idea of recycling and multipurpose, to achieve the desired industrial look in your home, there are a number of design cues which you need to keep in mind.

 

Here are two examples of how a homeowner has achieved a striking industrial look in their own homes.

In the above examples, you can see a number of elements which are consistent across both, the key factors that you should keep in mind if you’d like to pursue an industrial style are:

1 - Abstract Art/Photography Is Encouraged

As the essence of industrial interior designed is a stripped, back-to-basics appearance there is a danger that an industrial style room can appear bare. Equally, abstract art or photography is often fantastic in these kinds of spaces, as it will act as the focal point of a room and create an all-around interesting space. The more creative the better!

2 - Unusual Light Fixtures Are Essential

Light fixtures are an essential part of achieving an industrial look, oversized bulbs, chrome light shades and other alternatives to the norm are perfect. Although usually found in boutique and independent home shops, mainstream retailers like Next and Ikea are embracing industrial design in their 2018 lines.

3 - Metal, Leather, Concrete and Wood!

Materials are another key element in achieving an industrial look, think of a factory or an urban loft, where the inspiration for industrial interior design was born. Concrete, wood and other raw materials make up these spaces, and so should the materials you use in your room. In the above examples; you can see how metal and concrete have been used to create a stylish room. Remember, industrial design is about cold hardstyle, so if you’re a fan of home comforts, this may not be the style for you.

4 - Keep Your Colour Palette Dark!

Industrial design is not known for having a fantastic relationship with colour. When it is used, it is done so sparingly and is meant to accent the room rather than form a base. Monochromatic, dark-toned colour palettes are king; with greys, blacks and browns being the most commonly used.
