The industrial style has been widely used in residential environments. Its origin dates back to the ’70s in which old sheds became urban dwellings – we call the to loft. Today, even in apartments or houses it is possible to adopt this type of decoration in several rooms.
It is important that essence is present in space. Therefore, try to keep the windows wide with the apparent frame, brick walls, metal stairs, the use of burnt concrete and cement, apparent structure and few room divisions in the environment.
The other two styles that can match and match perfectly with the industrial are vintage and rustic – but vary according to the resident’s personal taste. The former can warm the room with colorful elements (pastel colors) along with natural wood furniture. If you prefer the latter, look for old and worn furniture and prefer metallic tones that further enhance the style.
It is quite usual nowadays to see the rustic industrial style in masculine environments. So abuse older finished doors and windows! The centerpiece, for example, maybe a pallet on casters, nightstands with chests, unique and antique pieces to complement the space.
Another key point to give more charm to the environment is to mix it with the pieces of art. Typically, items are larger to refer to the high ceilings that need to be valued. If you want to dare a little more, choose graffiti: an urban art that can be made right on your wall or in the form of paintings.
