When you renovate your homes on a budget, there’s usually very little that you can actually do design-wise. You must save on the expensive carpentry and cut back on too many wall features. But you know where you can splurge to make up for all the simplicity? The furniture! Themed furniture – especially industrial chic one – is an excellent way to spice up your plain home ambiance. Let’s take a look at how you can manage it:
1. Manage the layout
Before you actually decide on the furniture, you must manage the layout. Since different homes have different space structures, it can be challenging to optimize the circulation spaces. Some homeowners opt for simple partition walls to separate areas while others use the open layout to the fullest. This is where the furniture comes in – you must select pieces that have a personality of their own so that they can manage to individualize the different zones; just like the living area and dining space in this image.
2. Fresh-faced study desks
The study room is a space that calls for a lot of concentration, but that doesn’t mean you can simply ignore its ambiance. Here’s the deal; even when the rest of the surroundings are simple, bare walls, you can opt for fun industrial-chic furniture to introduce a fun and eclectic vibe. Some of the pieces can be colourful, while others can be understated – just like in this image.
3. Lights matter
Everybody just focuses on the mainstream furniture while embellishing a simple interior design, but there’s one more element that you must focus on if you want to make a true difference. That is the lighting and its fixtures. Plain LEDs and ceiling fixtures are only going to make the rest of the space more flavourless, so you must pick out interesting ones to compensate for the lack of inherent designing within the rest of the ambiance.
4. Being stylized
The best part about industrial style furniture is that it is simple and stylized at the same time. It doesn’t stand out very much but it’s still incredibly trendy. Therefore, it’s the best choice for a theme when you’re furnishing plain homes. Just take a look at the dining space in this image – had it not been for the furniture, it wouldn’t have looked so attractive.
5. Don’t forget the kitchen
Kitchen cabinetry is a part of the furniture as well, so you definitely shouldn’t overlook it while furnishing the rest of the space in industrial pieces. Since you cannot put mainstream pieces in it, you can pick a cabinet/drawer laminate that suits the aesthetic just as well.
