What Is Industrial Style?
Industrial style is most commonly used in urban areas, cities, and lofts, it takes inspiration from old industrial places such as factories, it’s a mix of edginess and minimalism with metal features.
Industrial design is also very environmentally friendly, most of your pieces are either recycled or can be recycled, and a lot of your pieces will have been salvaged.
Elements Used In Industrial Interior Design:
Minimalism: Make the most of the space given, by using practical and functional features to give character to your industrial design.
Practicality over style: Nothing should be complicated, and everything should have a purpose/ function.
Edginess: clean, sleek lines are essential to creating that industrial style, but it doesn’t have to be basic, give your design a quirky finish.
Metals: Metal furniture and hardware is important in creating that industrial look, it should have elements that look like it’s from an old factory.
Exposed bricks: Exposed brick and concrete are the most common materials used for the structural parts of the design.
Exposed metal beams: if you’re getting down to the nitty-gritty, leave the metal beams exposed.
