It used to be that industrial wasn’t even a style. Today, you’ll likely find industrial décor in modern homes everywhere. The industrial style mostly utilizes humble materials, so it can be affordable. It showcases the beautiful interplay between pure form and functionality. It’s unassuming and comfortable in its own skin, which makes it all the more alluring.
Empire State Builders & Contractors your home building services expert, describes how you can achieve an industrial-style home.
The industrial style closes the gap between downright trash and treasure and finds beauty in all elements. Old parking meters, typewriter tables, and bolts and gears give an industrial look. The more shopworn they are, the better they will look. You can feel free to let your creative juices flow with it.
Industrial furnishings are minimal and no-nonsense, with strong, clean lines and without excess. Mix new pieces with old, reclaimed ones from thrift stores, flea markets and garage sales. To achieve this, you can repurpose wooden crates into tables, old lockers as storage and battered ladders into shelving.
Homey, cushy furnishings can feel out of place, so keep padded pieces simple and free of frills. An overstuffed wing chair or tufted ottoman breaks the balance of industrial décor. Use solid upholstery with natural textures and neutral colors for your home additions.
Break Up Open Spaces
The industrial style was born in big, cavernous buildings like warehouses, garages and plants. Because of this, an open floor plan is integral to its look. Merge kitchen, dining room and living areas as one. Break up a large space with well-placed furniture. An island and twin pendant lamps can separate a kitchen from the other areas.
