Industrial style homes have become increasingly popular as the desire for more polished, Instagram-worthy homes has increased. Creating industrial bedrooms doesn’t have to be expensive, in fact it’s really easy with a few simple ideas.
Industrial chic is an aesthetic home trend that draws its inspiration from old factories and industrial spaces. Sure, it might sound a bit strange but it’s actually super stylish!
You might not think an industrial design would work for a bedroom but with some simple additions amongst all the essentials a bedroom still needs, it looks amazing.
So, where do you start creating an industrial chic bedroom on a budget?
Add wood/metal elements
It’s pretty easy because by adding anything wood or metal you’re halfway there. Plus, you don’t have to spend a lot on furniture to get the look. Shop second hand, make your own or upcycle pieces you’ve found in the garage.
The more distressed and worn looking the better because industrial spaces are far from polished or perfect.
Use black paint
Paint is one of the most budget-friendly ways to renovate a space. Black paint is prominently used in industrial chic rooms and instantly creates a dark and mysterious mood for the space.
We wouldn’t recommend painting everything black because you’ll start to feel like you’re in a bats cave. But what you can do is create a feature wall by painting one wall black and add wood or metal shelving, as well as vivid green plants to make it pop.
Choose wood flooring for bedrooms
Albeit a slightly more expensive option compared to other bedroom flooring, wood flooring is essential for making a bedroom feel industrial. The natural and rustic look of wood is exactly what industrial chic is all about, so without it you’ll struggle for an authentic appearance.
If your budget doesn’t stretch this far, you could explore our choices for LVT. Luxury vinyl tiles work to realistically replicate natural materials like wood but have a better price tag. They are also waterproof, durable and extremely versatile for any interior space.
If you’re a DIY fan, you’ll love the opportunity to up cycle furniture, paint it a different colour or make something completely bespoke for your bedroom.
Why not try your hand at creating an industrial-style shelf for your books using metal piping and wood? The result will really bring the room to life!
Stick with a dark colour palette for bedrooms
Keeping things in line with darker tones is the way to pull off an industrial look. Everything you choose, from sofas, cushions and throws to TV units, shelving and modern decorations should never venture off to be too colourful.
