In every neighborhood, there is always this street where you find an old abandoned factory, an ancient big house that no one lives in or a rustic building that is currently being restored and surrounded by blocks, cement and a lot of workers. Some people’s passion is to observe these ancient buildings closely and admire their beauty and authenticity. If you happen to be one of these people, you have the opportunity to transform your home into this gorgeous style. Old, rustic, and vintage are synonyms for the industrial theme, so we’ll introduce you to some awesome ideas to apply to your home.

Neutral Colors

When you walk into a deserted factory, you don’t see popping colors or cheerful paintings; the overall paint is very neutral and is usually grey or black. It’s not even the same tone; you’ll find different shades of the same color. The same idea applies to your home; you want monochromatic colors to cover the walls. Feel free to design a black-and-white bedroom with minimal furniture and details; with black bed sheets, a black dresser, white walls, and a white chair, you should have a perfectly industrial themed room.

Different Textures

This rich theme is all about diversity and creativity. You can combine whatever materials you want to showcase in your home and that should create the desired industrial look. Your lounge could create the look of an exposed, fake brick wall, wooden sofas and modern yet budget-friendly bar stools made with wooden, leather or metallic materials. The combination of all these materials together gives a sense of a perfectly imperfect finish, which is what this theme is all about. Another way to apply textures is by having wooden floors mixed with random black and white tiles.

Go Vintage

Anything that looks used, primitive and simple fits perfectly with this style. Go to your grandparents’ house and look for such things; you may find an old telephone, a sewing machine your grandma doesn’t use anymore, or your old bicycle that looks a bit rusty. You can place these items in random spaces creating an element of controlled chaos all-around your house to show off that industrial style. Also, some wooden boxes left in your attic can create excellent bedside tables or coffee tables in your living room.

Fantasize and Fancy

Now that you get an idea of an industrial theme, it’s time you let your imagination and creativity guide you in designing the rest of your home. You can surround your sitting room walls with iron pipes, purchase a black cat statuette and place it next to the sofa, attach a worn-out metal pillar to a wooden one, then hang in the ceiling. Huge paintings, bold graphics, graffiti, and massive metal clocks can instantly make your walls an artistic work of art.

Methods of applying this unique style have no count that you can end up spending a fortune or you can stick to small, simple items; you understand now how this theme works, so you’ll do great. The further you allow your imagination to reach, the more fantastic ideas you’ll come up with. Some people may be able to implement this style in every room in the house, others may want to limit it to a single room. It’s feasible to stick to your budget whilst styling your home the way you want with these affordable techniques.
