If you want to learn more about industrial decor, then we’re going to give you a quick overview of this popular decorating style reminiscent of a factory or workshop. Industrial interior design is often associated with lofts, apartments and city dwellings.
It’s possible to mix industrial style with many different decorative tastes.
Here are the major elements of industrial decor that you will most often encounter. Many industrial lofts have exposed brick walls to give them a rustic and factory feel. Rustic wood and exposed metal are a key combination of industrial furniture design.
You can find just about any style of furniture with these pieces mixed together to create a gorgeous industrial design. If you can get your hands on antique pieces directly, then even better! I often see lots of distressed brown leather sofas in industrial living rooms.
When it comes to industrial lighting, the edison light bulb is king! Companies like Schoolhouse Electric have been very popular with creating beautiful lighting fixtures using bare bulbs in their industrial designs. I’ve also seen many large metal dome pendants and table lamps to help illuminate industrial spaces.
Since industrial interior design is inspired by large warehouses and factories, it makes sense that these homes would have an open layout to allow free movement. Large spaces with expansive floors work best for creating an open layout in your home.
Copper pots and pans will help you create that warm industrial nature in your kitchen.
Copper cookware and kitchenware also gives a charming vintage vibe to your industrial kitchen. It’s a truly industrial style material that won’t be going away anytime soon! If you can, try to get large black frames for your windows which form a grid.
