39 Industrial Living Design Photos

Whether you’re enjoying family game night or entertaining guests during a party, there is no better place to congregate with family and friends than the living room or family room. True to its name, it's the space where you and your family truly live; you watch movies, read stories, roughhouse and maybe get some homework done. As the focal point of the home, it’s meant to be comfortable, with a cozy fireplace, practical furniture, fully stocked bookshelves and, of course, a nice big-screen TV. Because it's where we spend most of our time, it is important to truly love and be inspired by home interiors. More

While planning a renovation or redesign, it's key to keep your family's needs in mind. If you love playing games, ensure there is a large table for game night. If your kids are all about video games, there should be plenty of seating and the TV setup should be fully stocked. And if you want to encourage studious behavior, add a built-in desk, bookshelves and a handy reading nook. To start your process, your first priority is thinking about your focal point. Many industrial living rooms aren't complete without a fireplace, but if you live in a warmer climate, maybe a large entertainment center is your best bet. Once you figure out your top feature, invest in those built-ins. Bookcases, media consoles, desks and shelves are a great way to add practical storage without taking up too much space. Finally, when the big components are planned out, think about what color scheme and decor will best suit you and your family.

Should I include a fireplace in my living room or family room?


Depending on your climate, a fireplace might be a great way to add warmth and interest to your living space. Even if your location is warm year-round, you can always add a faux fireplace or nonfunctioning fireplace as part of your decor. There are many options to choose from, so be sure to check them out. A wood-burning fireplace gives an authentic experience, though a gas one still emits heat without the mess. A double-sided or corner unit strays from the ordinary, or you can go with a wood stove fireplace if you're looking for a piece of art. If you want a contemporary touch, veer away from the traditional wood or tile mantel by going with stone, concrete or metal instead.

What kind of built-ins should I add to my living room?


Although it might not seem glamorous, having enough storage is instrumental when it comes to keeping the room organized and practical. Built-in bookcases, shelves and cabinets are a great way to add hidden, functional storage for all the knickknacks you accumulate. Movie and gaming buffs will love a custom entertainment center, with enough cabinets for movies, speakers and electronic accessories; you can even create a media room with a projector and lounge chairs! If you still have room to spare, include a booth for homework or craft projects.

How do I decorate my home interiors?


When it comes to decorating, neutrals are always the safe option because they look good and never go out of style. If you do want to try out a bolder color scheme, add color with walls and industrial accessories. That way, if you get sick of a color, you can quickly repaint the walls and find new knickknacks, instead of having to replace your sofas every time trends change. Popular colors include blue, green and gray, but don't be afraid to try bright colors like red or yellow, even if it's just on an accent wall. Finally, make sure there is plenty of light. Recessed or track lighting are great ways to hit every corner — better yet, add more natural light by installing additional windows or a skylight.
