Industrial style rooms have that effortless feel nailed. So take a look at these 5 steps to introduce it to your home.
1. Choose brick
Okay, so in an ideal world, we’d all live in New York style lofts. But because most of us don’t, we’ll have to make do with exposed brick instead. Of course, not all of us have pretty bricks worthy of showing off either. Fake it with super realistic wallpaper or faux brick panels.
Top tip – industrial style loves geometric designs, so team your brick with a Roman blind like this fabric called Geode Tangerine.
Metallics with a dull, brushed effect complement industrial style perfectly. Copper gets extra points – go all out in your bathroom with a swoon-worthy tub and practical yet stylish storage.
3. Plump for wrought iron
The slim profiles and wrought iron finishes of the geometric desk, along with a stylish stool and table lamp gives just the right amount of industrial cool to this bedroom-cum-office. Here’s a quick tip – industrial doesn’t have to mean sterile. Breathe life into your scheme with a house plant or bunch of blooms.
4. Mix textures
It’s not only metallic textures that are key when it comes to industrial style. Go for distressed wood, painted finishes and patent subway tiles. This kitchen looks like somewhere we’d love to cook up a storm. And the icing on the cake are those pendant lights – which brings us nicely onto our next point…
5. Choose laidback lighting
To tick all the boxes of industrial style, bin the chandelier and go for something a lot more laidback. Metal pendant lighting is a great choice – or ditch the decoration altogether and let an Edison bulb and wire do the talking alone.
