The industrial-themed home is chic but it can come off as cold and distant. Adding some unexpected luxurious elements into an industrial-style space can add both warmth and character. Here are some easy ideas:
Wood can add warmth and a sense of luxury
Is the weathered and unfinished look of true industrial-themed interiors too much for you? Combine the relaxed feel of industrial-style furnishings with the warmth of woodgrains. With these wood-like tiles, there’s no need to worry about nicks and scratches.
Go for smooth lines and surfaces for an understated elegance
Concrete may be a mainstay of the industrial look, but a way to bring elegance into a space is by opting for smooth lines and surfaces. This bathroom matches customised concrete zones with understated bathware.
Add a bold colour for definition
Another way is to bring a sense of order to the space. Create definition with crisp features and a statement colour. Streamlined furniture and lighting ensure that the space appears neat as a whole.
Include some timeless shapes into the mix
Think industrial style and cage lighting comes to mind. How about changing things up with the timeless shape of IKEA’s RANARP lamp? Its sense of polish helps balance out industrial finishes like concrete and metal.
