Industrial Loft Vibes

Industrial style or industrial chic refers to an aesthetic trend in interior design that takes clues from old factories and industrial spaces that in recent years have been converted to lofts and other living spaces. Components of industrial style include weathered wood, building systems, exposed brick, industrial lighting fixtures and concrete. This aesthetic became popular in the late 2000s. Industrial style décor marries sleek modernity and old world charm with an organic, lived in feel to create the perfect play of contrasts. A loft apartment or house is a large area and a maximum free space, the use of contrasting materials together, textures and colours, exposed utilities, and high ceilings. Consisting mostly of neutral hues and materials that focus on unique textures, this design style is easy to pull off with lighting, décor, and furniture. Despite its simplicity and minimal design tropes, industrial style manages to create a bold statement. The juxtaposition of modern versus timeworn makes for a great, layered and considered statement. It’s an environmentally friendly approach to interior design as it encourages the use of recycled or salvaged materials. Industrial style furnishings are usually hardwearing and often obtained from reclaimed yards. The basic finishing materials used in this style are weathered wood, exposed brick, industrial lighting fixtures, concrete, glass, and steel. The best benefit in creating industrial style homes is that you’ll have the opportunity to customize the look using furniture and décor that are completely unique to your home. Industrial interior design is pleasingly flexible.
