29 Incredible Industrial-Chic Design Ideas for Your Home
Sign up for email updates from Hipvan
Industrial-chic is HUGE these days. If you haven’t already noticed (or heard), this décor style has made a grand entrance into the world of interior design with a bang. Furniture have gone rustic, indoor walls gone bricked, and wires, pipes and bulbs are now proudly displaying their bare-nakedness. For the older generation, it doesn’t quite make sense to them why we’re exposing everything now when what they tried hard to do back then was to conceal and hide. But if the end product is an aesthetically pleasing interior, who’s gonna complain?
The Industrial Living Room
You should definitely consider a brick wall in the living room. Whether red or white, make sure you have a few nice exposed pipes and wooden panel flooring.
What we love: The many wall clocks. The room makes us feel as if we’ve fallen into a time tunnel. Good thing they ain’t cuckoo clocks.

What we love: The grey walls, the rustic cushions, the use of green and the clever positioning of the factory panel mirror to make the whole room looks bigger.

What we love: The fact that this is an industrial farmhouse! Notice the use of soft elements (floral appliqué cushions).

What we love: The brilliant use of wooden pallets as a makeshift base for a bench.

What we love: The really eye-catching pictorial image as the backdrop and honeycombed cardboard furniture. This room looks fit for an artist, don’t you think so?

What we love: Vintage X Industrial. Love the use of the trunk as a side table or a coffee table. The posh three-seater definitely standing out.
The Industrial Bedroom
Washed walls are no longer a pipe dream. Say bye to cornice and wallpaper.

What we love: Absolutely the washed duo colour cement walls!

What we love: This is going to make you feel you’re sleeping in a warehouse — a really nice one that is.

What we love: A softer industrial chic that is. The use of a chevron print lamp and vibrant wall art too.

What we love: Absolutely the red metal bed frame and the concrete floor!

What we love: The really high ceiling and windows. But it gets too hot and sunny here in Singapore. Install blinds around!

What we love: The exposed pipe that a chandelier is suspended from. The use of softer fabrics also rendered it a softer industrial-chic bedroom we can picture sleeping in. The room isn’t very big but it’s definitely well put together.
What we love: The eclectic fixtures! And the combined use of red brick walls and wooden panelled ones! This just further shows why wood and brick go hand-in-hand.
The Industrial Kitchen

What we love: The tiled backsplash that is rendered to look like a brick wall. Brick wall for backsplash can be very difficult to clean so the home owner is really wise to have used tiles.

What we love: The yellow cabinets that pop! Also loving the idea of using the kitchen counter as a bookshelf! Great use of space there!

What we love: The beehive tile flooring looks so good when paired with red bricks. This is something you should definitely consider.

What we love: Absolutely everything! Metal backsplash is definitely gaining popularity these days.

What we love: The angled pendant lamp, the ladder used as a rack at the corner and the large ceiling high typography wall art.

What we love: The half-brick, half-painted wall and the concrete flooring. Absolutely adoring the idea of using a bamboo ladder as a magazine rack (you can use it as a towel hook too). Very used and rustic looking table there that adds so much character to the overall.

What we love: The red pendant lamps and the mismatched chairs. Of course, when it comes to industrial chic interior, one can ever do without mismatched furniture.

What we love: The chalkboard as backdrop. Now you can personalize the wall at will.

What we love: The long bench, the inverted diamond shaped pendant lamps and the giant cast iron wall clock.
The Industrial Bathroom
In one of our earlier posts, we featured small bathroom ideas for HDB homes in Singapore. Amongst which were resort style, contemporary and industrial-chic themed bathrooms that you can have a quick look at.

What we love: Something we can definitely use for our small bathroom! Love the concrete flooring for the sink area and pebbled one for the shower area.

What we love: The grey vertical tiles, the factory glass shower door and the exposed ceiling pipe that the bulbs are suspending from.

What we love: The mosaic tiles, exposed steel pipe and glass wall shelves. Simple and nice!
