My ideal home decor style is a mixture of rustic and industrial. I have already done a similar post of easy ways to add a rustic touch to your home. So today I wanted to focus on the industrial style. This style is making a comeback and you can find more products of this type in stores, which makes it so much easier to add industrial touches to your home. And I know once I get my own place, this will be one of the main two styles running through my next place. So how do you add an industrial touch to your home if it wasn’t originally designed like that.
The main features of the industrial style are:
- A focus on humble but stylish materials such as unfinished wood and metal for industrial style furniture
- Refined, masculine style
- Lack of pretension
- Stress on function rather than decor, industrial homes show little non functional decor
Industrial Pipes Features
Industrial pipes is a main key to adding that industrial touch. Some ideas of how to use them around your house include:
- Industrial pipes as curtain rods
- Glass shelves supposed by industrial pipes for your towels
- Shelving units or bookcases made from industrial pipes and wood.
Industrial Decor DIY
- Pallet furniture such as beds, desks, bookcases, and more. There are so many different things you can make out of palettes.
- Lighting from mason jars and metal wires.
- Paint anything and everything black with a slight metal appearance
- Faux brick wall. A lot of stores sell faux brick wall coverings that you can use to create a brick accent wall for relatively cheap.
- Re-purpose metal or rust covered pieces from thrift stores. Such as clocks, carts, street signs, trackers, gears, or you name it. Almost anything covered in rust or metal bring that industrial feel into your home.
