We’re not sure anything embodies the industrial vibe in home décor more than materials such as wood, metal and exposed brickwork. Even unfinished plaster-work can scream “stylish” in an industrial inspired space, especially when combined with brushed steel, copper and galvanised metal. In terms of furniture, consider vintage leather, repurposed woods with natural cracks ingrained and steel piping.

Industrial lighting has become a go-to style over the last couple of years, across both modern and period properties. Working especially well within a kitchen and dining setting, consider sleek back metal fixtures and signature Edison bulbs. Glass or metal pendant lighting is a great way to highlight a kitchen island, while oval bulkhead lights are an interesting alternative to bedside lighting.

From vintage leather Chesterfields to metal display cabinets, leather shoe benches and more, the key to achieving an industrial-inspired interior lies in your choice of furniture.

When it comes to industrial-inspired interiors, natural and neutral tones work the best when teamed with materials such as wood, metal and leather. Think concrete grey, walnut brown, black, and off-white alongside splashes of olive, petrol blue, and mustard to add a little interest to the scheme. A tip to remember is stick to matte rather than anything with a glossy sheen.

Now this is why you can have a little fun. Industrial-inspired accessories can make or break a space, especially when it comes to mixing vintage and new purchases. If you feel like you’ve over styled, there’s a strong possibility you probably have. Consider bell jars, black and white cityscape photography, oversized metal letters, old Hendrick’s gin bottles (any excuse to purchase another bottle!), cushions and throws to add texture and stop the space feeling too cold, old retro fans, typewriters, cacti, vases in varying heights but similar muted tones, and church candles. Of course, there are so many other decorative accessories to choose from, but these work particularly well in an industrial inspired space.
So, there you have it, the five fundamentals to creating an industrial style interior design. Are there any elements here that you’d love to incorporate into your own home?
