There’s no question one of the hot trends in design right now is the industrial style.The modern loft makes anyone feel cooler. But, you can get this look whether you’re designing an actual loft, home or even a small apartment. Which means, you don’t have to live in a warehouse-style loft in NYC to be cool… Just add a few specific elements and you’ll be on your way!
The use of unpolished metals helps make a space more rustic and industrial. The finishes in this dining nook, paired with the unfinished (possibly recycled) wood table definitely helps this small home add a little industrial style.
To achieve the look however, you don’t have to go dark. You can lighten the room up and just add a few “rough around the edges” pieces, like this coffee table on wheels and the textured area rug. Unfinished wood is a great way to add dimension and industrial quality to a room.
If you're one of the lucky ones with an actual loft, which includes cement floors and brick walls, a great way to create a home in an already industrial space is by adding a mixture of materials. Leather, iron and natural woods are a great place to start. Area rugs are also great for softening up any space.
Nothing says industrial more than including your method of transportation in your dining room. But, if you don’t want to be this obvious about it, you can also achieve the same look by storing your bike near the entrance. Or keeping it under stairs (maybe even hung upside down)can help save space too.
This modern home has an industrial look without hitting you over the head with it. The fine wire chairs and lighting fixture create a very raw, industrial feel to this clean, modern space. Subtle details are all you need to achieve any style.
