In today's world where there is a growing awareness about reducing wastage and keeping things simple and stylish, people and decorators are gradually rediscovering the sheer rugged beauty of industrial style. This interior design style is popular for its ability to blend in unfinished elements with polished details in a harmonious manner. To get the style right you have to plan out the basics by first planning the layout of your home before getting the essential objects for every room and considering their color palette, size and location. Industrial style need not be limited to homes created out of warehouses and barns but can also be adopted by modern homes in stylish ways like these ideas adopted by our interior designers for their clients.   

1. Warehouse industrial look

Try to adopt the warehouse look with industrial style drop down lamps in the dining area. The clean utilitarian look with minimalist furniture looks sparse yet warm and inviting. This open floor design makes maximum utilization of space with dining area abutting the kitchen while the exquisitely designed false ceiling separates the regions in a subtle way.

2. Industrial style kitchen

The advantage of industrial design is its ability to mix easily with existing contemporary or modern style and kitchen is the best to adopt it. With sleek metal finishes, modern appliances and other details the kitchen has a industrial look with metal bars on the sides and ceiling. The drop down lights from metal bars on the ceiling add to the charm of this industrial style kitchen.

3. Open spaces

Instead of having a closeted living room the designers decided to have an open area that makes use of every inch of space. Lightweight furniture and floating wooden staircase without the usual balustrade but metal wires supporting it is the best example of industrial design.

4. Bring industrial style to bedrooms

Here metal pillars and brick walls bring industrial style to the bedroom in a stylish manner. Instead of focusing on opulent details the focus here is simplicity and as even the bedside lamps are subtle while bed linen is handwoven.

5. Industrial style bedroom

To bring industrial style to the bedroom use exposed details like the wooden stands that look modern and sharp. Leave roof beams exposed and use handwoven fabrics to give it rustic appeal.
