# EXPOSE CONSTRUCTION ELEMENTS
Leave nail heads exposed and embrace construction elements that are visible – like beams and brick – we’re sure your industrial loft will look dazzling!
If you’re lucky enough to have exposed brick walls in your home then you have a head start. For those of us without a brick abode, brick veneer is an affordable alternative. A feature wall or kitchen splashback are just a couple of places to start.
There’s no way to can deny it: industrial-style lights are the best! Edison bulbs, bulb cages, pulley lighting designs are effective but our favorites are those of the scissor accordion variety. Diana suspension lamp has a unique retro touch and the ability to be extended making it extremely versatile.
# RECLAIMED OR WEATHERED WOOD
Forget perfectly polished floors and shop around for weathered varieties that have character and industrial style. Reclaimed wooden boards are great because they welcome wear and tear, eliminating concerns about scratching newly installed floors. In fact, a few extra scratches will add more character to the room.
# CONCRETE JUNGLE
Concrete floors are particularly popular and provide a masculine functionality to the home. Plus, concrete floors are functional, easy to clean, and will last a lifetime.
# STYLISH STEEL
The old maxim of ‘less is more’ applies when it comes to steel. A house littered with steel accents like doorknobs, kitchen appliances, picture frames and other little bits and bobs will add a cohesive finish to your industrial pad.
# BE BOLD WITH ARTWORK
Big, bright and bold pieces of art are the perfect way to personalize your industrial outfit. Own your own home? Paint a mural directly onto a stark white wall or exposed brick.
