So, you’ve got the flooring down, but what makes a room industrial? Like so many interior design styles before, it all comes down to the details. Touches of raw flare, like exposed beams, brick fireplaces, and leather chairs all expose the beauty of natural imperfections. Infuse your place with natural materials and textiles such as organic wool rugs and potted plants plus salvaged or recycled materials that lend an industrial look.
Industrial Interior Design
The architectural elements within a space influence industrial interior design. These elements often include loft-like spaces with piping and ductwork that’s made as a focal point. Taking inspiration from 19th and 20th-century factories, industrial design uses the strength of brick, concrete, iron, and steel to create an efficient and uncluttered space. Often, industrial-style spaces might look “unfinished” but that’s the point —they’re meant to provide a casual ambiance that’s laid-back and lived in.
