Modern Industrial

Make it work:

  • Make a feature of raw materials and textures, such as concrete, timber and metal
  • Exposed beams, brickwork or pipework can add wow factor
  • Use neutral tones in every shade from white to black
  • This style is best suited to larger spaces, especially with high ceilings
  • Keep it simple, minimal and clutter-free
  • Black tapware is a great way to modernise the industrial look

Traps to avoid:

  • Overdoing timber – a little goes a long way
  • Worn features like rusted metal – “modern” industrial is clean and feels new
  • Trite features like cogs – it should feel like you’re actually in a warehouse or factory space
