You are probably wondering what is the Industrial style and which elements will characterise an industrial style bathroom? What are the decorations, colours, finishings and so on to have an industrial look bathroom?
We will try to answer some of your questions and explain one of the trends that nowadays influence bathroom renovations.
Let’s go back in history to get a clearer idea. Industrial style is the result of upgrading and remodelling an old factory, warehouse or area once used for industrial production. These new residential areas, result of the closing down of factories or big working space areas, were remodelled without altering their original structure. Their renovation kept their initial impression and look however their use was upgraded to private homes.
The first thing that probably comes to your mind when thinking about Industrial style is that of the typical New York loft with large metal frame windows, exposed bricks, high ceilings and vintage furnishing.
Industrial chic has slowly become famous and now it can be found almost anywhere. In fact, many spaces have been designed from scratch as industrial and not as a result of a renovation. If you want to give your bathroom an industrial look then go for a simple and slim design. Vintage look vanity: ceramics that look like concrete, solid wood or other alternative materials.
The colours to keep in mind, apart from the white to contrast the exposed bricks walls, are black and dark brown together with greys and a bit of bronze. Natural wood, preferably hard wood, is used to give warmth to the whole area.
