What is Industrial Style?

Industrial style or industrial chic refers to an aesthetic trend in architectural design that takes elements from old factories, warehouses and industrial spaces which have been recently converted into living spaces (loft and others). Industrial style is all about achieving raw, edgy style that looks unfinished, yet cohesive. It is a juxtaposition of rustic and contemporary, rough and cozy.

Components of industrial style include weathered wood, building systems, exposed brick, industrial lighting fixtures and concrete.

Characteristics of Industrial Style

  • Exposed ceiling. Industrial style exposes what others try to conceal, and one of them is pipes and ducts on the ceiling. This style celebrates this showcase, so that the room looks ‘unfinished’.
  • Metal surfaces are exposed in the columns and beams, typically, and in other elements to resemble the industrial era.
  • Wood, concrete, and bricks are common materials to use for walls.
  • Vintage furniture are used that has some metal.
  • Showing of mechanical details.
  • Colors are kept warm, earthy and neutral, staying true to the nature of the materials.
