6 easy ways to carry out an industrial make-over
Industrial interior designs are always the epitome of chic with a side dose of raw and sophisticated. They’re quite famous in the globalized interior design market and many people vie for that coveted industrial vibe while not knowing the basic essentials that make up this particular interior style. As all interior styles, it is not simply a unified singularity but a culmination of many small concepts that make up the industrial aura. Below, let’s look at some easy ways for you to carry out an industrial make-over in your home.
- Earthy colors
One of the easiest way to imbue the industrial aura in your home is to go for an earthy color scheme. The interior below shows just how easily a collection of strong, earthy colors in a small space with raw textures could bring about an industrial style aura within your home without much effort at all.
- A plethora of textures
Another easy way to come up with an industrial chic vibe within your homes is by combining dark colors, dim gold light and heavy but unique textures. The image below shows how when a lot of textures are strategically put into place with the right color scheme in the right lighting, the ambiance will automatically spike towards the industrial scale of the design compass.
- Structural roofing
One of the mainstream convention about industrial interior design is its emphasis on string, structural detailing, especially in the roof section. This conception has stuck, and now this point has become a must-have on any industrial design check-list. The image below shows a heavily decorated ceiling that runs with lots of pipes to give an authentic industrial vibe.
- Raw materials
An emphasis on raw materials is another one of the industrial interior must haves. Since many people are hesitant to actually expose raw materials in their interiors, designers have come up with alternatives. These include laminating the surfaces with actual raw looking finishes. The image below shows just how aptly they can be visually illusory.
- Floor finishes
Another mainstream convention for the industrial style is the typology of flooring – wooden. Any glossy tiled finish would instantly lessen the impact of the other raw finishes, thereby making the impact of the rest of the design schematics redundant by default.
- Raw simplicity
The industrial style of design does not try to be flashy or showy, so refrain from going overboard with the actual implementations. Its sophistication comes from raw simplicity that is challenging to replicate within its other predetermined boundaries. Only with a straightforward design outset can the actual ambiance be successfully curated.
