Industrial Style – Raw Aesthetics

The essence of the industrial style lies in showcasing a space's original form, drawing major design elements from colors and materials commonly found in factories and warehouses. Making good use of cement, stone, concrete, and sheet metal, spaces in this style don't deliberately segment areas. Most areas are open or demarcated using barrier-style separations. In the past, this style was predominantly adopted in industrial buildings or offices, but in recent years, it has become one of the most popular design styles. If you're keen on creating an industrial-themed space, take note of the following points:

1. Exposed Metalworks and Unconcealed Piping

Traditional industrial styles originally served factories and storage purposes, so the interior design tends to be straightforward. Piping isn't deliberately concealed; exposed pipes become a unique decorative feature. However, "unconcealed" doesn't mean "messy" – the arrangement should still be tidy. Moreover, metal fixtures, especially steel, are vital elements in this theme. However, when selecting metal decorations or furniture, DECOLAND suggests ensuring they follow a consistent style.

2. Showcasing Raw Materials

The heart of the industrial style lies in displaying the natural characteristics of a space. However, if walls are left completely unembellished, whether in residential or commercial settings, it might come off as too intense. Therefore, designers typically opt for two classic industrial materials for residential spaces: brick and cement. Whether it's red brick, colored manufactured cultured stone, or cement with a faux concrete effect, these choices as wall decor effectively convey the feel of raw materials. Moreover, mixing these materials in different proportions can create varying degrees of industrial ambiance.

3. Dominant Tones of Black, White, Gray, and Brown

The foundation of the space is crafted using shades of black, white, and gray to create a cool-toned ambiance. This is then complemented with hues of caramel, smoked colors, and the vintage feel of leather or aged wood to infuse warmth and a sense of comfort. Paired with warm lighting, it ensures a harmonious texture throughout the home, making the overall living environment more inviting and approachable.

4. Leather Products

Natural or slightly distressed leather effectively showcases the organic side of the industrial style. It can soften the cold ambiance brought out by metal elements, restoring a balance in the otherwise intense industrial feel.
