Have you dreamed of renovating an abandoned factory to make it your home? You can still create an industrial style bedroom. A concrete wall, furniture with steel legs, bed linen in shades of gray and white, a cinema studio-style lamp, an original floor covering and you’re done. After all, what is an industrial style? A few references or key elements and a lot of freedom around! So follow our ideas step by step to create a beautiful bedroom with industrial decoration.
1 – Exposed brick walls
Exposed brick walls are one of the key elements of industrial decoration. But not too much is needed, if you opt for this coating or an imitation wallpaper, choose to cover a single wall. Because the bricks are visually very present elements, so do not abuse them. Especially since the principle of the industrial style is to have large volumes like in New York lofts or old factories, not to make the space smaller by overloading it.
2 – A dark colored floor
In the industrial style, it is a question of a workshop or an old factory, so the floors are not polished. However, you can opt for parquet or laminate in dark gray tones.
3 – Artist’s studio atmosphere lighting
The freedom of the industrial style is to count a few key pieces and add contemporary elements. To mix the old and the modern. As for lighting, you can install stainless steel lamps, especially hanging ones. More and more, we see pendant lights with Edison-style bulbs, which alone create the look of industrial, vintage lighting.
4 – An original dressed ceiling
You do not have large metal beams on the ceiling of your room? However, nothing prevents you from dressing this part of your room which often remains undecorated. How about embellishing your ceiling with thin strips of wood? Or why not dare a patinated paneling, with an aged appearance, rather in silver gray hues? You can also put lengths of wallpaper on one of your walls and let it overflow on the ceiling.
5 – An industrial design headboard
The key association of the industrial style in decoration remains wood and metal. If you buy your headboard in the trade, you will find it easily. You can also try making your own headboard: why not use pallets?
6 – A raw or metallic style bed
Go back to your childhood, with a raw wooden bed suspended from the ceiling. It also works for your bedside table: you can install a swing on the ceiling, which will receive your bedside lamp, your alarm clock and your glasses. You can also opt for a wrought iron bed, canopy or not. A metal bed easily finds its place in a modern bedroom. Then play with the bed linen which can completely change the atmosphere of this same piece of furniture.
7 – Bed linen on the industrial theme
Printed bricks, metal plates, wood are part of the industrial universe. When it comes to duvet covers or pillows, industrial style colors revolve around browns, black, white, gray and a bit of brick red.
8 – A factory-themed bedside table
Your current bedside tables would not suit the industrial style you have just chosen? How about painting them black? Simple pine bedside tables, for example repainted in black, take on a whole new dimension. They gain in elegance and give you the impression of having changed, while the artist is you and not the furniture store on the corner of the street. Of course, you can absolutely buy them. How about bedside tables in aged wood and black metal?
9 – A brushed steel mirror
Industrial mirrors come in all types of shapes and sizes. Combine a metal frame, why not brushed steel, with wood and you have a pretty mirror with industrial design accents.
10 – Industrial decoration accessories
The industrial style gives pride of place to mechanics. It is fashionable to see the inner workings of a machine, to display pulleys, lighting systems, rails. The details of the mechanics are displayed in broad daylight. You can also to enhance them divert their use. To find this type of object, go to flea markets and garage sales. You will find many vintage objects that you can divert and integrate into your industrial style decoration. A nicely rusty old metal box and you have a vase perfectly suited to the industrial decoration of your room. Because the “industrial” style is basically a style made up of many mixtures, from pallet wood furniture to furniture with luxurious finishes. Metal furniture such as wardrobes or steel clamshell furniture also have their place in an interior that looks like a New York loft.
To sum up, keep in mind a certain minimalism above all. Think practical and functional, especially when it comes to storage furniture. Choose wood, metal and leather, alone or in combination. Leave the bricks exposed on your wall, the metal beams on the ceiling, the cogs as decoration.
