How to Achieve an Industrial Design in Your Space

By: Amy McVay
Posted In: Design Log


Industrial is one of the most easily recognizable interior design styles. Learn how to achieve this iconic look in your home or office with these tips:

Go Back to the Basics

The industrial interior design embraces the fundamentals of a room that many strive to cover up or hide. By exposing the building blocks of your space, your room is given the loft-like vibe that industrial is known for. Create this look in your home by incorporating bare brick walls, visible ductwork or exposed ceiling beams.

Find Unfinished Furniture

The less fancy your furniture, the better it works for an industrial design. The key to a successful industrial space is simplicity. Some common accessories include simplistic wooden or metal chairs, shelving made from plumbing pipes and exposed lightbulbs.

Add Some Rough Real Wood

Not willing to expose the bare bones of your space for the world to see? Don’t worry, you can still achieve the industrial design of your dreams. Whether incorporated on the walls, ceiling or into pieces of furniture, the rough texture of real wood planking can add an element of ruggedness to your space without requiring robust remodels.
