5 Ways To Add Warmth To An Industrial-Style Home

It never hurts to add rustic flair to turn a cold room into a cozy haven


There's no denying that industrial-inspired spaces are all the rage. From business centers and cafes to condo units and multi-storey homes, everything seem to be dressed up in brick, steel, and concrete elements nowadays. However, these open rooms can also look a little too stark. To avoid making your home feel like an abandoned warehouse, check out these tips: 

1. Dress up your windows in sheer curtains. 

Make the height of your space work to your advantage by creating the effect of a feature wall with drapes. These will help add a sense of daintiness to a space without being overly feminine. They are also a great way to keep the sun from getting through your large windows on days when you're sleeping in. 

2. Drench your space in color.  

Adding splashes of color is a quick fix to any decor dilemma. Use red, orange, and rich pinks in your furniture or art pieces to give the space a warm and playful vibe.

3. Play with texture. 

Since everything in industrial-inspired spaces are sleek and simple, it's easy to experiment with different textures that can add character to your home. Overlay the natural finishes of wood and metal with textiles, prints, and knits to create a cozy feel. 

4. Decorate with green wonders. 

What better way to make a space extra homey than with a few indoor plants? Select taller or low-maintenance varieties to fit your modern, large-scale space. 

5. Invest in mood lighting. 

We can't emphasize this enough—lighting is key in achieving a perfectly styled space. Make sure to splurge on pieces that can set the ambience you want to achieve instead of dull, overhead lighting.
