Exposed pipes, exposed brick and burnt cement. If you thought of a shed or an old factory, you got it right. But these elements are also ideal to compose the decoration of an industrial-style house.
Do you know this way of decorating? The concept of industrial decoration emerged in New York around the year 1950. At the time, the old buildings and unoccupied industrial warehouses began to serve as housing, however, the original appearance of the place was maintained by the residents. A new style of decoration was inaugurated.
But make no mistake that the unfinished and somewhat imperfect appearance of industrial decoration makes it simplistic, from those made anyway. On the contrary, to get the right set of industrial decor, some important features need to be followed. Want to know which ones? So check out the tips below on how to make industrial style decor:
Characteristics of the decoration with industrial style
1. Burnt cement and apparent concrete
The rustic, rough and unfinished look is the strong point of the industrial decor and nothing beats the apparent concrete and the burnt cement to imprint that feeling on the environment. So invest in walls and flooring coated with the technique or even consider the possibility of building countertops and concrete counters and leave them like this without any finishing.
Clay bricks are another trademark of the industrial style and immediately refer to the factories of the beginning and half of the twentieth century. They are also great for making the room more cozy and comfortable, breaking a bit the coldness of materials such as steel and concrete, also widely used in this type of decoration.
3. Capriche in lighting
Indirect lighting from suspended luminaires or floor lighting also needs to be present in the industrial decoration. Another tip is to bet on the use of light bulbs connected directly to the wiring, dispensing with chandeliers and other types of support.
4. Wide windows and doors
Sheds and factories need large windows and doors to ensure adequate accessibility, ventilation and lighting. So of course this feature must also be present in industrial style architecture. Prefer iron or steel frames with glass enclosed spans.
5.Integration of environments
Integrated environments is another characteristic of this type of decoration. When the industrial style emerged and the large sheds became occupied, all environments shared the same space. That is, no walls or partitions and the more integrated the better. That way you also value the coexistence and social relations within the house. Alias, this is also a strong feature of the modern decoration that, by the way, walks side by side with the industrial style.
6. Pipes and exposed installations
To recognize at a glance whether or not a décor is industrial, look for pipes and pipes for water, gas, air conditioning and electric power exposed in the environment. They are the basis of the industrial style proposal. A hint to insert them more harmoniously in the decoration is to paint them with a vivid and contrasting color.
7. Furniture and household appliances
When thinking about furniture, prefer steel, solid wood or iron. The antique furniture is also a good request for this type of decoration. Already for the electronic equipment and appliances prefer the stainless steel. They can come in both vintage style and a more modern and bold design. You choose.
Something interesting to note in industrial decor is that the unfinished and imperfect appearance of the floor, ceiling and floor coverings are contrasted with the bold and modern design of the furniture and electros. That is, in the industrial decoration there is always room to merge the rustic and crude with the sophisticated and elegant.
Another key aspect of any decor are colors. They mark the style proposed in the environment and are decisive for the success or failure of the decor. In an industrial-style decoration, the sober and neutral colors make up the basis of the environment. In this case, always prefer white, black and gray. The vibrant colors are not discarded, they can integrate the decoration, but in a balanced and balanced way. Usually used for some detail and the most used are primaries - blue, yellow and red.
Last but equally important to be mentioned, if you want to change the decorating style of your home without spending too much or not doing break breaks, the option then is to invest in self-adhesive coatings or wallpapers. There are models that perfectly mimic the coatings mentioned above and can easily change the face of the environments. Think about it!
