Home Décor Series: Industrial
Home decor has become such a creative form of self-expression. It allows you to showcase your creativity and personality through the style of your home. Over the next few weeks, we will be covering various home decor styles and how you can incorporate elements into your own home. This week we introduce you to the industrial style.
The industrial style has been around for years but has become increasingly popular in the last few months. The industrial design pulls in different elements to create a cohesive and unique look. A staple for industrial spaces, like apartments, is open ceilings with exposed beams and piping. This mimics the look of old industrial warehouses that were simple and essentially bare. The buildings facilitated work with no extra frills. The modern-day industrial look stems from the same principles – simple and unfinished. The iconic look utilizes exposed brick, piping, ductwork, and wood to create the desired aesthetic. Most homes today do not showcase their home’s inner workings, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate industrialism in other ways.
Industrialism does not limit itself to homes only in cities. It is a style that anyone can incorporate into their own home. A great place to start when redesigning your space is with your floors. As stated before, wood and metal are excellent industrial elements. Hardwood flooring is the best way to bring wood into your home. It also doesn’t have to be traditional hardwood floors if you don’t want it to be. Depending on your lifestyle, you can choose from laminate, luxury vinyl, or tile flooring to best fit your space. These flooring options come in all different styles and patterns, including ones that mimic traditional hardwood flooring!
Once you’ve chosen your floor, begin looking for accents. Industrial accents include neutral color palettes like white, gray, black, and dark tones. Utilize different colors in the same room to create a bold and simple statement. Opt for subtle or minimal accessories to keep spaces from looking cluttered. Industrialism is created by clean and crisp elements and clutter-free spaces.
