One of the most prominent trends for interior design in 2018 is Industrial Chic.
Industrial Chic can be best described as a rustic, yet detailed way of styling your home, complete with exposed brick walls and lots of natural lighting.
The trend takes inspiration from old factories and industrial spaces and has previously been a more modern way of styling a loft or apartment. However, in more recent times, this sought after look has been translated across the entire home.
From researching this particular style, it is easy for the individual to be soon put off due to the number of features required to properly execute this particular style.
However, here at Roccia, we have broken down the key components that you will need to transform your living space easily and effectively, into this incredibly popular aesthetic trend.
1. Mighty Metal
Hailing from the aforementioned industrial building and old factory look, it is clear to see where the heavy influence of metals across the trend can be traced from.
From everyday fixtures such as chairs, bed frames and railings, metals such as steel, copper or nickel can be used to take simple objects from drab to fab, achieving this look with minimal effort.
Look for chairs with striking metal legs, or tap fixings made from iron to recreate this rustic look.
2. Exposed Lighting
The tones of grey and black are replicated through the light fixings in this trend, where exposed light fixtures are common.
Whether it is overhead lights or lamps you require, seeking lighting which looks simple to the naked eye can have an Industrial Chic effect on your living area.
3. Tantalizing Textures
A general issue with Industrial Chic is that from the outset, the increase in bold metals and exposed brick can create a room which might not appear as welcoming as other interior design concepts.
The shabby-chic fixtures can appear cold, therefore it is imperative to experiment with different textures to create a less harsh tone.
Using warmer components, such as pillows, throws or rugs, all with differentiating textures like faux fur, cotton, and synthetic mohair, can add a new dimension to your new Industrial Chic styled home.
4. Wood Works
Exposed beams, coffee tables made of solid wood, dining tables carved using rich mahogany… the possibilities are endless.
Wood is an extremely durable material for effective use within almost any household unit. The range of colours and textures are pleasing on the eye and, as is the nature of wood, it can be tailor-made to suit and fit any specific requirements.
The finish creates an earthy aesthetic, which fits in with the rustic, industrial look you are trying to achieve.
5. Wood Effect Tiles
No room is complete without a sturdy floor to finish the overall look.
With benefits such as longevity, easy-maintenance and cost-effectiveness, Wood Effect Tiles are the clear option when deciding which route to go down.
