Increasingly, owners of stylish attics, commercial premises and even some modern homes choose and furnish their homes in an industrial style. This style was born in the 90s of the last century in New York probably out of necessity and in an attempt to turn old or abandoned warehouses, industrial and factory premises into functional and cosy living spaces.
LARGE AREAS AND SPACE
Since in America this style was mainly created on the area of industrial buildings, the space required for the realization of residential interior should be not less than 100-200 square meters. High ceilings, large windows, ceiling beams or open pipes with different diameters are an indispensable part of the industrial style. Undoubtedly, this style looks especially authentic in attic spaces that perfectly match the style.
MATERIALS AND FURNITURE
The main components of this style are old wood, metal with traces of rust or patina and concrete. What is special here is that the metal must be matte, without traces of shine.
Part of the beauty of industrial interior design is its simplicity. That is why the above materials are the stars of the interior. Stainless steel kitchens, concrete walls and metal accessories fit in a unique way in the industrial space.
Furniture that combines metal and wood, open shelves, metal chairs and wooden tables combine extremely well.
Warm, neutral colours are usually preferred for industrial-style homes, which are usually large and open. They help to create a feeling of visual warmth in the space, which is otherwise easily neutralized by the coolness of metal pipes and concrete.
Huge windows are an integral part of the industrial style. Much more light passes through them, which literally floods the whole room in the sun’s rays. The window frames are better to be metal in a dark colour. Curtains are usually absent in this style, but if you stick to them, they should be simple, light and made of natural materials in light colours.
To stay true to the interior design in an industrial style, many homeowners prefer the flooring to be polished concrete. In fact, it is a practical and economical option that fits perfectly into this style.
Those of you who want to bring extra contrast and warmth to the interior can bet on natural wood or stone floors. Both options are extremely suitable and create a feeling of warm and cosy design.
