You can also use the ideas here to add a touch of industrial style to a home that has not been converted from an old industrial building.

What is Industrial Home Décor Style?

The industrial home decor style draws inspiration from old factories and industrial buildings. The decor trend has been popularized by the conversion of industrial spaces to residential spaces.

By incorporating existing features, the building blends in well and becomes part of the home. To give your home an industrial look, incorporate raw materials for an unfinished appearance.

Copper piping, Edison bulbs, and plenty of open space are great ways to accomplish this.

Among the components contributing to the industrial look are brick, exposed pipes, and cement flooring.

When decorating your space, avoid clutter and choose salvaged and recycled materials when possible.
