Get The Look: What'll Need For Industrial-Chic Interior
Industrial interiors are all the rage these days, even if it has been around for a really long time. This style choice stands for all that is cool, gritty and mature – reflecting old-school warehouse stylings, exposed brick and steel as well as no-frills fittings.
But how does that translate into actual home décor? We’ll show you with these eight incredibly designed industrial-themed homes:
1. The Capers by Surface R
Can industrial equal cosy? This lovely living room says yes. To warm up natural cold accents associated with industrial interiors, simply infuse light where possible. Try brighter drapes and warm white lighting, perhaps even going with neutrals for walls, flooring and furniture.
With industrial themes, you can always mix contrasting materials. Notice how cool grey marble slabs make the perfectly imperfect countertop to match its hand-made, worn-wood base?
A glossy finish to a brick wall backsplash adds a modern twist to a typically ‘unpainted’ style common with industrial décor.
2. Subang Jaya by Meridian Interior Design
Made to look like a makeshift kitchenette and dining area, the décor in play is characteristically industrial with solid tones and unfussy furniture.
However, it is taken up a notch because of one awesome standout – an immense, extruding brick feature wall.
3. Tropika Putra by Id Industries
An artfully aged wood-grained table top like this would make any industrial design decorator proud. Complete your dining room by incorporating mixed seating options such as old-school benches and Scandinavian dining chairs like we see here.
Bracket spotlights and ‘unencumbered’ bulbs is a style choice that shows the grit or essentials-only flair that embody industrial décor.
4. Symphony Hills by X Two Concept
Part of the feeling behind industrial themes (as with urban modern décor) comes from a need to use what you already have. Neither carpet nor furniture or even drapes would match in theory here – but a dusky element pulls all together.
This would include repurposing, reimagining – even redesigning one’s possessions to make something new, i.e. this distinctive, handmade lighting fixture.
For a no-nonsense approach to a media or entertainment room, try keeping the fittings basic àla simple recessed lighting and straightforward shelving constructs. You might also keep a portion of the space bare, use plain materials, and incorporate natural flooring to achieve an aesthetic balance.
5. Lake Fields by Spazio Design
Smaller kitchens do well with industrial themes especially since clean lines and bare spaces contribute to a less crowded, more-spacious-than-it-is look.
Exposed or unfinished elements are rather central to industrial décor, so do consider incorporating reflections of such ideals. For instance, unpainted cement walls, plain wire-and-bulb pendant lightings as well as metal bracket spotlights.
6. M Residence by EDI: Essential Design Integrated
Being a city-inspired décor style, industrial themes can be adapted for suburban homes – even ultra-luxury ones. This living area keeps its edge alive with dark and deep furniture amidst brazen white tones.
Industrial style is masculine and raw – but sometimes a little modern feminine energy is needed to update the look. Focus on softening the contrasting palettes with floral accents, sheer drapes, art pieces and heaps of natural light.
7. Five Stones by X Dimension Design
With large or open layouts, choose darker colours to fill up the space; this is easily achieved with industrial interiors. Go with dimmer metals and deep rustic wood pieces for a dusky finish.
Industrial décor is not known for being elegant per se – but this bathroom stays sophisticated with clean lines and a classically contrasted colour scheme. Final touches of masculinity through “barely finished” materials and unadorned installations show its true industrial personality.
8. Mutiara House by EDI: Essential Design Integrated
This sitting room is charming and rustic with wooden flooring and an impeccably carpentered look. We especially love its homage to industrial chic with prettied exposed beams that hang modern-minimalist pendant lighting.
Keeping with its sophisticated take on industrial décor; this kitchen puts a refined finish on steel cabinets, a cool marble island and pendant lights with metal canopies.
