The industrial style is now adopted in Madrid

The industrial style is becoming more fashionable now unlike how it was perceived not too long ago. Proof of this is in the large number of apartments in Madrid that are designed in this style. Here we are going to tell you about the industrial style's main characteristics.

The industrial style in the world of decoration first materialised in the 50s due to the conversion of warehouses into places of residence. Therefore, it is not surprising that this aesthetic style is intrinsically linked to loft-type properties, which provide a greater sense of spaciousness.

The other main features of the industrial style consists of various structural elements in the building such as brick walls, electrical installation or pipes. Steel and iron fittings as well as pieces of furniture with straight line designs and a worn or preserved appearance are also strongly present in these homes.

On the other hand, stainless steel fittings that are combined with wood can typically be found in the bathrooms and kitchens of industrial style homes. Antique-looking faucets and sanitary appliances also give a retro appearance in these rooms. This is because antique fittings have an important place in decoration regardless of whether they are original or imitations.

Having said all that, it is best to give a good example to help you better understand what an industrial style is. Let us, therefore, present you with this spectacular home in El Viso, which is one of the most exclusive and fashionable areas of Madrid. The property has four bedrooms and five bathrooms on a total living space of 340 square metres. There is also gas heating system, wooden flooring, fireplace, terrace, and garden. 

As you can see in the photos, the wood and metal features are combined perfectly in very wide open spaces which, in addition, are accompanied by large windows. In this property, wood is used for flooring, stairs and similar elements, while metal is chosen for furniture items. On the flip side, the ceilings show the original construction of the building, i.e. no plaster or anything similar has been used.

There is no doubt that the best of the industrial style in the world of decoration stands out for its originality and boldness, while providing useful solutions in terms of space and practicality. This is why the industrial style tends to create a very pleasant and interesting feel.
