Industrial Interior Design Trends 2022 » Residential Style

Industrial interior design is one of the most enduring trends. While the details may change and evolve from different influences, the idea has been around for years and shows no signs of slowing down.

This is good news for those of us following this trend.

What is industrial interior design?

Industrial interior design includes a more raw, unfinished look. It can also be an industrial or commercial look, with exposed concrete and brick, exposed ductwork, and materials and designs that you would traditionally associate with a workplace rather than a home.

Key elements of an interior design plan can include:

exposed structure – Exposed brick walls, concrete floors, exposed pipes and pipes are all good examples.

element material – Wood, concrete, bricks, metal and materials closer to raw materials all characterize the industrial scheme.

Recycled or industrial furniture or accessories – There are many recycled features in industrial design, such as repurposed school furniture, former commercial storage rooms, bar stools, reclaimed parquet flooring and other materials are common.

While overall industrial design schemes have always existed, certain trends ebb and flow like them.

Is there a specific trend we need to follow to create an industrial look?

open plan living

Although not mandatory, industry often takes place in open-plan buildings. Loft-style properties, older homes with fewer walls and lots of space.

If you can implement an open-plan design, it can form the basis of an industrial look, as it more closely reflects the factories and commercial spaces that spawned the scheme.

exposed materials

Exposing materials is a key component of industrial planning. This means exposed brick walls, exposed concrete ceilings or floors, exposed beams, ductwork, pipes, exposed wires from ceiling lights, etc. will all help.

The degree of exposure of spatial structures depends on their material type. Sometimes less is more and a feature wall or area can be used for exposed brick.

neutral colors

Another key feature of an industrial scheme is neutral tones. You’ll often see a basic color palette with earthy tones or solid colors accented with accessories.

You can add color using wood, copper, or fixtures and fittings, but wall color is not usually used.

In our experience, a heavy use of black, white, and more earthy colors works best.

more metal

Using metal in your design can add a very effective industrial look and add contrasting color and texture to a space.

Think brass, copper, exposed steel fixtures and you’re on the right track. copper Features stunning color that adds depth and warmth to the space. brass Adding a sense of lightness and tradition, the steel adds a clean look.

You can use metal for exposed pipes, lights, doorknobs, cabinet handles, copper pot ranges, metal furniture and many other places.

Add wood texture

Using too many metals and monochrome colors in industrial design can appear cold and soulless. Let’s not have that, that’s where wood comes in.

Even if you use warm metals like copper, you may benefit from natural materials like wood. It’s full of colour, texture and character and can add so much to a room.

Consider using reclaimed parquet flooring, solid wood furniture, old wooden tables or wooden furniture around the space.

celebrating concrete

Depending on the space you’re designing for, revealing materials that are traditionally hidden can really bring the design to life. Just like concrete.

Exposed concrete ceilings work really well as long as they fit the space. The same goes for exposed concrete or polished concrete floors.

It won’t work in every space, but if the room supports it, there are few more effective ways to add an industrial feel.

Plus, when your tastes change, you can always cover it with paint or carpet!

recycled furniture

Shop smart and you can find amazing furniture that will outlast us all. This type of furniture is ideal for industrial design schemes.

We often see furniture from industrial design schools being repurposed. Old school desks, dining room tables, science lab cupboards and storage rooms, and more.

Also, how many times have we seen recycled parquet floors from auditoriums or classrooms used in industrial design?

Natural woods, heavy varnishes, graffiti and metal frames all add character, texture and something unique to the space.

Accessories are everywhere

Free use of “bit” to fill the space can create the perfect finishing touch. Think metal light switches, metal cabinet handles, distressed carpets, plants, industrial shutters, Victorian radiators, salvaged industrial machinery or parts and you’re on the right track.

The secret to accessories is volume and balance. You want to add as much space as possible without going over the top and ruining the look.

This is something you have to be there to appreciate, so we won’t interfere!

industrial interior design

Industrial interior design has a lot to recommend it. It is very flexible and can be used in a variety of spaces and provides huge room for experimentation.

It also includes recycling and regeneration, both this Ways to grow your home.

With the right accessories, rugs and soft furnishings, your space won’t feel cold or uninviting, either. In fact, if done right, it can feel counterproductive!
