The trend for an industrial look in our homes has been going strong for quite some time now and certainly shows no sign of disappearing any time soon!
Raw materials, muted colours, metallic fixtures and contemporary furnishings are all elements that can describe the industrial trend. It’s about proudly displaying the construction materials that would usually be concealed!
Make the most of any existing elements such as metal, concrete, brick and wood. Exposed brick, concrete floors, visible pipework or steel beams help to achieve a warehouse feel that is associated with the Industrial style.
A monochromatic colour palette occurs naturally when combining materials like concrete, metal and wood. Keep the look going by painting walls neutral colours.
There are some fabulous wallpapers on the market that imitate natural materials and finishes such as concrete panelling or wooden planks.
Fixtures and fittings in finishes like antique bronze and brushed nickel add to the industrial style. Simple pendant lighting with Edison bulbs is also popular.
Incorporate rustic metal or wood shelving and cabinets paired with sleek, modern furniture to tie the various components together.
Don’t be afraid to mix it up. Pair a wooden table with metal chairs. Or add a sleek statement piece to prevent the scheme from looking too flat.
Don't forget some stylish soft furnishings to compliment the hard edges!
Pair the old with the new. Salvage yards are a great place to seek out original industrial pieces to mix with newer items.
