Industrial interior design uses the characteristics of industrial premises. It is based on rough uneven surfaces, old cloth and anything which relates to the industrial production. It's much easier to create industrial interior design with existing materials. For example, if the walls of your home are old and uneven, you can give them worn look and leave a surface unpolished.
In recent years it's very popular to leave the brick wall unpainted or just lacquered. Accessories and furniture must be in harmony with the interior, but still overall décor should slightly resemble industrial mess.
In order to get a modern industrial interior design, use the kitchen furniture and equipment made of stainless steel. For the other rooms, it will look more welcoming if you get made to order furniture from Italian designers.
In the industrial style, ceiling beams and columns will look the most attractive, especially if you live in loft apartment. Some attributes related to industrial premises complement and complete industrial interior. The main advantage of industrial interior is that it has a relatively small cost.
Up-cycled furniture pieces will help to achieve the desired look. Up-cycled furniture piece are the old metal, wood and steel objects, like sink, old barrels converted into the tables, pipes used as shelves for books, and much more.
Industrial interior design can not be without wood element. Wooden furniture and accessories will not only bring industrial design, but also add a bit of warmth to the interior too, while brick or metal wall look little softer on background.
As industrial interior design is similar to minimalist design, so you don't need to get a lot of home decorations. Industrial interior design does not look very bright, so you can add a bit of colour with live plants, flowers or vintage posters on the walls. For flooring always better to choose wood, cork or stone material. If you don't like a look of uneven, rough surfaces then you can easily choose semi-industrial décor.
