How to achieve the industrial look in your apartment
There are huge differences between a jaded house and an industrial looking apartment. If the two options seem the same for the untrained eye, believe us: that is merely an optical illusion.
This second look, the industrial decor, is proof of good taste and attention to detail. However, it’s not that difficult to achieve it in your own apartment. Let’s see, step by step, what are the mandatory items you need to recreate the industrial decor in your home. First of all, it’s important to know that recycling and reusing are actions that will provide you good industrial-looking items. Then, there are these decorative rules:
Rough-looking or brick walls, without any layers of paint, are a must have in industrial design. The old-fashioned curtains in the picture are a good detail.
Get some partially peeled wooden furniture.
An old-fashioned sofa, preferably with a reclining option, is mandatory.
Look for vintage tables, chairs and also photo frames for your walls.
A vintage looking bedroom chest helps to build the decoration.
Metal furniture like this desk is a big part of the industrial design.
Get metal ornaments like candle holders, sculptures, wall decorations or a mirror like this one.
Get unique objects like a dressmaker’s mannequin.
Hang some common light bulbs high on walls or on the ceiling.
A wire lampshade looks great in any industrial-looking home.
Wooden counters and a chalkboardÂ wall will transform your kitchen.
