3 Budget-Friendly Ways to Achieve the Industrial Style
Complete your dream space even when on a tight budget
Loved Ninel Constantino's industrial-inspired home? Aside from showcasing raw finishes and unique items, the house is full of personality and completed with a budget in mind.
If you've always wanted a space with an industrial style, here are pocket-friendly ways to achieve the rough yet cool style.
- Leave the concrete walls and floors unpainted
As much as possible, consider keeping the concrete raw as it gives your space a modern-urban edge. This type of finish helps you save on costs as you don't have to spend on paint and tiles.
- Visit home depots
"You don't have to go to a high-end store to get industrial style accents," shares Real Living Style Editor Dagny Madamba. Local home depots have ready-made wrought iron grilles, metal frames and shelves, and unfinished wood at affordable prices.
- Drop by thrift shops
Thrift shopping is always a welcome activity! Homeowner Ninel Constantino visits antique shops in San Juan, Kamuning, and Cubao X. If you're looking for a distressed-finish and one-of-a-kind pieces, you can visit Duodeco (www.duodecostudio.com), Resurrection (mobile: 0918-924-0580), or check out Mitch Shivers's repurposed pieces (email: shivers.urban.dna[at]gmail.com).
