Jumpstart Your Day: 5 Inviting Industrial Bedrooms You’d Love to Have

Be inspired to turn your private space into the ultimate chill spot


Concrete walls, bricks, and exposed details are just some of the things that we associate with the Industrial Style. While some think that it’s too raw and lacks warmth, we think otherwise! The right balance between these elements and the owner’s personal style can create a haven that’s laid-back and perfect for a much-needed rest.

We’ve gathered five photos and a couple of ideas that may just make you consider this gutsy style for your own home:

If you are working on a mini home improvement project, you may want to consider having steel windows in your bedroom. These window frames add a distinct character to your space that can make you feel like you're living in a New York City apartment.

Complete the vibe by doing away with a bed frame and setting your mattress on the floor. Add throws and pillows to make it the comfiest spot in the room. For a more interesting personal space, you can display framed artwork and wall decor on the floor—set against white walls.

The appeal of the industrial style stems from its simplicity and easy maintenance. If you're not too keen on painting your walls, keep it bare and choose a concrete or distressed finish. Liven it up by choosing an interesting light fixture or hanging abstract art. No need to worry should you decide to paint it in the future! Just make sure you prep the area well with the help of these tips.

You can also inject touches of wood to cozy up industrial rooms! Aside from choosing wooden accessories and decor, try a little DIY and install wooden boxes as storage and makeshift side table. In this room, the owner worked with cube wooden boxes to serve as side table for knickknacks and to hold the lamp.

RL Tip: You can also stack a few boxes to create a side table. Use it to hold magazines, gadgets, and other essentials.

When it comes to storage, don't limit yourself to boxes, steel cabinets, and pipe shelves! Save on costs while keeping up with the theme by using an industrial bar stool as side table! The top part can hold a mini lamp and your alarm clock while the space below can accommodate books and magazines—make sure you add a piece of wood to hold these items.

We're used to seeing bricks in industrial spaces but how we can we liven it up? Framed art and photographs can do the trick! Choose vintage-inspired pieces and ones with ornate details to create a rustic vibe. You can also choose to display black-and-white photographs to create a uniformed look.

RL Tip: Planning to invest in a new bed frame? Opt for a steel one and pair it with a sturdy mattress for a perfect slumber!
