One of the key parts of an industrial look interior design is that the raw materials that have gone into producing something should not be hidden away, as though they do not exist. Instead, the materials, the processes, the industry of producing and crafting items for the home are all at the forefront of the style. In this way, you will see a lot of exposed wood, brick, concrete and metal. This could take the form of large features, or smaller accessories such as nickel desk lamps or spotlight lamps.

Interestingly, it becomes a kind of style that intends to remove the need to cover up everything in style. This may seem paradoxical, but in practice it makes for a look which is striking, attractive and also concerned with the functionality of everything just as much as the appearance. Examples of how this philosophy might come into action can be seen in the smallest touches. Such as adding wooden storage boxes or copper wine racks as practical industrial accessories.

By choosing items such as these, you will be able to create a collection of many different, bold textures. The traditional space that everyone thinks of when considering the industrial look is the loft apartment with exposed brick and large windows. This gives you a sense of the kind of feeling that an industrial look might offer, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. That is because the industrial style is something which can be called upon in a whole range of spaces.
