Once you’ve bought your condo unit or built your dream house, the next step is the always the hardest part: finishing your interiors. With the growing trend of industrial-style homes, the knee-jerk reaction of most homeowners is to make a beeline for the corner hardware to get your desired materials.

But did you know that there are specialized stores that carry these specific materials and finishes? Checking out these stores will help you create a hip, urban-style home, and not a space that looks like a warehouse! We’ve listed our readers’ most-asked-for materials, floor and wall surfaces, and fittings here:

 

Filament Bulbs



The lighting staple of many cool coffee shops and restaurants also makes for a beautiful lighting fixture in an industrial-style home. These clear, retro bulbs with glowing, Edison-style filaments thankfully come in energy-efficient LED versions.

Factory-style Lamps



A filament bulb, of course, marries well with a factory-style lamp. Real industrial factory lamps are actually available (and at good prices) at major home depots, but if you’re looking for a bit of style and color, go to these shops instead. Urban Abode, for example, offers actual vintage street lamps in colors that range from green to copper and orange.

Cowhide Rugs



The perfect area rug for a bare, industrial-style concrete floor is a real cowhide rug in a nice pattern. Once only available abroad, you can now purchase whole and patchwork-type cowhide rugs locally.

Shiplap Walls



In the past, contractors had to cut wood planks into thin pieces to create shiplap walls (interior or exterior wall siding made out of horizontally placed wooden boards). These days, you can get ready-made shiplap siding made out of eco-friendly materials from SCG—try their extruded Smartwood series.

Barn Doors



With its weathered finishes, panels and braces, and multiple rivets, barn doors can definitely add character to an industrial-style space. The only problem: making these hefty doors is a contractor’s nightmare! Dumaguete artist Karl Aguila sells these types of doors ready-made, and some pieces are sold in their Makati showroom.

Barn Door Mechanisms



A barn door will be useless without a sliding barn door mechanism and rail. These interesting hardware contraptions are sold locally by Vintage Hardware. They also have a distributor in Cebu.
