Industrial style, an innovative trend that has taken over homes

The industrial style began in the 50s with the utilisation of New York City and its factories of that era as examples. The industries moved forward and the city started filling up with completely empty warehouses and factories that were later occupied. From that moment, loft-style properties were created with iron beams, pipes, open spaces and the enormous windows that acquired an important relevance. Well, now, the industrial style has returned stronger than ever before and it has done so with more claw and freshness than ever. In this article, we will give you tips on introducing this design trend to your home: 

Lofts with an Industrial Touch 

We have already talked about these types of properties that are mostly characterised by their open spaces, large windows and very high ceilings, where the more wooden beams, the better. Yes, natural wood, without any varnish or lacquer that can hide the aesthetic appeal of this material. This is because rustic-looking materials and finishes have priority in the industrial style. The origins of this trend go back to the industrial plants (warehouses) that were abandoned in the past. Those buildings had large windows and today they are still perfect examples of the industrial interior design with exposed beams as one of their main features.

Beautiful and Desirable Structures 

The structure of these types of properties is extremely important. The pipes are visible, so are the ceiling beams and the concrete columns. The walls, on the other hand, are made of brick; although they can be painted in any colour, such as white. 
The key materials in the industrial style are leather, natural wood (untreated), concrete and iron. Without these features, one would not be able to successfully create the industrial style. Stainless steel, for example, also plays an important part in furniture, appliances, countertops and more. 


Eclectic and Timeless Style 


If something is characterised by the industrial style, it is because of its timeless nature. The truth is that it can be combined with other styles without killing the desired effect. In this way, it is possible to incorporate an industrial lamp and a rustic style table in the living room, but keep in mind that neutral colours are the true protagonists here. To create the perfect industrial style interior design, it is necessary to use neutral colours, such as grey, beige, white and even black. 
The industrial style blends rustic furniture and some exceptional features that are also part of the most modern decoration like leather sofas, tables with metal wheels, metal lamps, etc. So if you want to include this style in your home, you must create authentic spaces with all the mentioned features that are endowed with a lot of character. 

As leaders in the real estate sector, we like to keep ourselves up-to-date with the latest trends in interior decoration. So much so that at the Central Offices of Engel & Völkers in Barcelona, we have joined this incredibly original trend and our offices on the 6th floor, in Diagonal 640, are decorated with a touch of industrial style.
