The Industrial look is perfect for those who believe that less is more. This is a clean, stark style that is never fussy and always functional. The Industrial style is also about recycling and using once discarded pieces for new purposes. Color is typically kept to a minimum and floors are usually left bare to keep the look hard and minimalistic. While the Industrial look had its beginnings in warehouse spaces and artsy lofts, it has now migrated to more conventional homes, as well.
- Recycled found objects are particularly popular accessories, including industrial light fixtures.
- Keep it gray, black and white. Other hues should only be used minimally and are best used as startling pops of color.
- No frills allowed. Leave bricks, cinder blocks, pipes and ductwork exposed. Avoid curtains and other coverings.
