5 Interesting Industrial Homes
More than just showcasing concrete, these homes highlight a unique artistic flair
Bare, minimalist, and with exposed details – industrial homes have a one-of-a-kind appeal that homeowners would like to apply in their own spaces. Aside from using industrial-inspired pieces and accents, making this look work entails achieving a balance of raw interiors and curated details.
Let these five exceptional homes inspire you to create your dream industrial haven.
Eclectic pieces, industrial elements, and art complete this 68sqm space. The overall design was based on a lamp from Amsterdam – made of metal, wood, and wheels. The exposed metal pipes work well with the wood furnishings – creating a warm, quirky home.
Area we love: The Kitchen
The exposed shelving and pipes are practical choices. They don’t just blend well with the theme, they also make the area even more efficient – the open shelves make it easier to get utensils and other essentials while the exposed pipes make it easier to spot leaks.
While some homeowners prefer to have one or two standout pieces, the owner of this condo preferred to have the whole unit as a conversation piece. After a six-month renovation period and with the expertise of interior designer Frenjick Quesada, the space now has a gray brick wall and very stark furnishings.
Area we love: The Dining Area
The dining area features a counter with cement-finish that separates it from the kitchen.
Complementing the gray brick wall are the drop lights from Lights and Play, adding a quirky touch to the space.
Gray might be an unusual color to use at home but in this unit owned by Wilmer Lopez and Thor Balanon, it helped set the tone of the industrial style that they want to achieve. The gray walls and floors helped create a raw look which complements the pieces added to the space. Since the unit was kept bare, it helped open up the space to make it seem more spacious.
Area we love: The Entryway
To add character to the space dominated by gray, a collection of cameras, travel books, and a framed print were added to the area.
Interior designer Wilmer Lopez created an industrial look by taking down the ceiling to leave the plumbing and wiring exposed. The walls were stripped of paint and covered in stark concrete.
Area we love: The Bar
The bar serves as the focal point of the unit since the owner wants to explore the possibilities of having his own business. To separate it from the rest of the pad, black-and-white chevron stripes were painted on the floor. Completing the look are pendant lights and a quirky lamp that help set the mood reminiscent of the owner’s favorite bars.
This home owned by industrial designer Mitch Shivers is filled with remarkable pieces made from old materials – like the house number made from scrap metal tubes and the wooden gate and dining table legs made from train tracks, to name a few.
Part of the house that we love: The Staircase
The staircase will surely catch the attention of guests! It has floating steps fastened to the wall with metal brackets. No need to worry about the absence of the usual stair railing or banister – as tension wires are suspended from the ceiling.
