GET THE LOOK – Modern Industrial Style

By September 12, 2014 Get the Look No Comments

Think warehouse, loft apartments, exposed brick walls, beams, mechanical and structural elements…

Include the ‘oh so hot now’ exposed bulb pendant lighting to the mix and increasingly popular copper accents in the kitchen and bathroom for wow factor.  Maximise on open plan space if possible and be creative with bold oversized graphic artwork or abstract paintings.

Although there is an emphasis on mechanical and rustic elements, the beauty of this style is you can also combine contemporary furniture and appliances allowing you the modern creature comforts of today whilst keeping an urban edge.

If you are renovating your home in this style, take note of the characteristics you want to include in your hard surfaces:

  • Concrete
  • Metals
  • Greys
  • Blacks
  • Distressed Timber

TILE junket’s resident Interior Designer, Tracy, has put together a tile palette from our Geelong West showroom inspired by the Modern Industrial look.

The colour palette is essentially a monochromatic one but using touches of timber can bring some warmth into your space.
Bathrooms can feature exposed piping from the vanity, oversized shower heads and you may like to incorporate matt black tapware which is trending amongst various interior styles.

Bring Modern Industrial Styling into your Outdoor Entertaining too

As the season is warming up, why not incorporate the Modern Industrial style into your outdoor entertaining area?  Hang large light bulb string lights above a table with caster wheels, metal stools and timber bench seating.

There are lots to love about this style, see more on Pinterest.
