The industrial chic style is one of those hybrid contemporary aesthetics that have been specially curated to make the most of modern spaces. It’s a style that has got the perfect blend of sleek and sophisticated to make a space look highly charming and elegant at the same time. So further, we’ll be looking at how you can emulate the industrial chic style in your HDB interior designs!
1. Choosing the right color scheme
The industrial chic style uses a mixture of greys and browns to imbue a sense of elegance and understated sophistication in the interior designs. Therefore, while emulating this style in your HDBs, you must choose the right shades of greys and browns to introduce and edgy but sleek aura in your interior designs.
2. Bold lines
The industrial chic style is mostly emphasized by using bold lines to outline some facets of the space. For example, you can use black lining for door frames, architraves and even the ceiling design to emulate an edgy look that is executed in a chic manner. You can also use some bold furniture trimmings and highlights to emphasize these bold lines.
3. Simple, dynamic geometry
Simple yet dynamic geometry is another essential of the industrial chic style. It can be introduced in the form of the kitchen cabinet designs. You can alter and customize the cabinet shapes and styles to emulate this geometry. It’s nothing complicated – just a customized blend of squares and rectangles to give your interior designs a specialized look.
4. The requisite tiles
Of course, the industrial chic style can never look fully complete without the use of the cloudy grey wall tiles that have become such a characteristic of the industrial style. You can use these to create an accent wall in whichever part of your HDB interior designs you want. It can be a feature headboard wall in the bedroom or even the media wall in the living room.
5. Light fixtures
The industrial chic style is very particular about the kinds of light fixtures that are being used in the design. You cannot opt for elaborate decorative fixtures. Instead, you should go for the basic Edison bulb hanging lights, the steel pipe wall fixtures and even track lights to emulate this aesthetic perfectly.
