October 12, 2018
The industrial interiors trend is growing in popularity. Taking inspiration from raw, earthy materials such as concrete, exposed brick work and ageing metals, it transforms an ordinary space into an architectural statement.
Colour and Materials
If you are looking to include industrial touches into your home, experimenting with colour and texture is a great way to start. Muted tones and natural materials such as coppers and worn steel will serve well as the foundation of your design. In keeping with the industrial interiors trend, these materials will add character, ensuring your space is contemporary but never austere.
Fixtures and Fittings
When it comes to furniture, salvaged items are an easy way of adding a touch of charm, like wood tables and shabby chic style chairs or bar stools. In the below kitchen by Burlanes Interiors we can see reclaimed wood and brick has been contrasted with metal and glass for a relaxed, urban vibe.

As above unearthed pipes, beams and brick walls are becoming popular. If you don’t have the option of exposing a wall or beams in your home, choosing the right fixtures and fittings can add a hint of urban style instantly. For example, metal pendant lighting over a dining area or kitchen is great for adding character, whilst providing valuable task lighting. Pendants with exposed bulbs, and minimal fuss look great in groups of three for maximum impact. A pull down tap and stainless steel sink are also great ways to add an industrial utility touch, as these are reminiscent of professional kitchens.
