If you prefer a more masculine interior decorating style, then you’re in luck! The industrial chic look is starting to taking over, and instead of featuring frilly décor, many people are starting to fill their homes with metals and reclaimed wood. Industrial chic is a style that combines elements from both industrial and shabby-chic styles to create an entirely different look. And better yet, it’s versatile and fits in well with both traditional and contemporary spaces. Get the look for your own home by adding the style’s basic elements.
Creating an industrial chic space starts with the right materials. Metals are a must, and tin, aluminum, iron and steel can all be used. When searching for furniture, look for ways you can incorporate steel into your space. Table legs or bed frames are a great way to create an industrial chic space, but if you’re not ready to make that big of a leap, you can also add smaller pieces of furniture like lamps.
While steel and other metals help to enhance the industrial side of industrial chic, you can add some of the more “chic” elements with reclaimed wood. To get the style right, search for worn and weathered furniture. The more rustic the wood, the better and the more character it will bring to your space.
The right mix of industrial metals and reclaimed wood to soften the look is the key to designing an industrial chic space. Try mixing elements of industrial chic into your home and see how you like the latest trend!
