The industrial interior decor design is one that has certainly secured its place as a popular option in modern homes. The unique blend of industrial and homey styles makes for a low-maintenance and effortlessly stylish interior that screams class, sophistication and gives a unique nod to the mechanics of a home or industrial set up. From exposed brick and steel to metallic shades and rustic, eye-catching centrepieces, and exquisite headboards as bedroom centrepieces - here’s how you can decorate your bedroom or anywhere in your home in an industrial style.
The materials you’ll need, or at least need to mimic, for an industrial interior will depend on the level of industrial you’re looking to achieve but as standard, the materials are as follows:
Without plasterboard and paint and neat finishes, brick can give a sense of clean, unfussy and very industrial spaces and with very minimal effort. Bricks are unique in that they make a statement and yet keep things simple at the same time, offering that old warehouse-style without the effort of putting up wallpaper or painting things perfectly. If you aren’t willing to dedicate to stripping the walls back to brick, brick-imitation wallpaper is more common now than ever before and is readily available at a lot of DIY stores.
Steels and other metals offer that same warehouse-like as brick, with the added benefit of strength and the fact that metallic furniture is easy to get hold of. Exposed piping or beams, antique metal furniture and ‘rough’ looking accents can create an industrial look easily. Cogs, wires, wheels and other metallic accents add to the warehouse-style industrial decor, while also adding an interesting focal point for any room. A simple way to do this is to choose from the industrial-style headboards available and add the one that suits your space.
Living spaces need fabrics, and the likes of faux-leather, hessian fabric, cotton and even hemp fabrics can all complement the industrial look. Unusual, reclaimed pieces fit in with the theme well, and offer you the comfort of softer furnishings and help to balance out harsher lines and surfaces and keep things feeling homely.
Add Softer Touches
Plants and fabric accents are a great way to soften things up in more comfort-focused rooms like the living room and, of course, the bedroom. Soft cotton furnishings or distressed but functional cushions and furniture pieces can create somewhere to relax and unwind without disrupting the overall look. Stick to the same monochromatic or muted tones, or introduce slightly bolder colours for a more unique style that reflects your personality.
