Designer Linda McDougald turned a culinary student's dream kitchen into a reality with a brilliant kitchen design that has all the trimmings to make cooking, cleaning and entertaining a breeze. A vaulted ceiling allows for a tall cabinet and range hood in this impressive transitional kitchen. Gray brick adds an accent strip to the wall under the range hood. The large island features two sinks on the gray countertop. A neutral bar extends from the island providing eating room. Industrial pipe stools with wood tops add a distinctive detail.
Edgy and industrial: two common words associated with tween and teen room design. Collect used cans and use them to create a one-of-a-kind door wreath by drilling holes into the bottom of each can, then fastening the cans together side by side with twine or rope threaded through each hole. For an extra layer of contrast, wrap fabric scraps around every other can.
Enhance the look of any island by adding stylish brackets, or corbels, to support the countertop. Choose weathered wood corbels for a casual rustic touch, or accentuate a traditional kitchen with ornate brackets. Metal supports create an industrial look. To complete the look, add comfort to wooden barstools with cushions or apply nailhead trim to existing stools. In this kitchen, Terracotta Design Build chose chunky, wooden corbels to give this traditional island a hint of rustic texture.
There's no way to look past the eye-catching art at the heart of this dining room. The piece brings color and vibrancy to an otherwise-neutral design scheme. Industrial-style barn doors and lockers bookend either side of the space; each is utilitarian and art in and of itself. Using stools for dining chairs means more seating space: It's easier to cram more of them under a table, as they tend to be smaller than traditional chairs.
This living room is a playful mix of colors and style. A red patterned curtain plays off the overstuffed red armchair. A commercial sign listing Boston neighborhoods serves as industrial wall art. A chevron rug and an avocado green record case as end table storage complete the color- and decade-mixing fun.
Made from pine with a dark stain, designer Brian Patrick Flynn’s team created and installed this low user-friendly Dutch-style door that closes off the pet nook from surrounding spaces in the home. Outside the pet nook door sits an industrial-style iron pet feeder with raised ceramic dog food bowls that gives pets a posh way to enjoy mealtime.
Look closely at these bookcases and note that they’re built on industrial disc casters, designed to be beautiful and practical office/room dividers. They’re literally colorful, moveable walls. Hanson Hsu of Delta H Design Inc. designed them with both form and function in mind. The shorter, higher shelves hold smaller books, which are lighter. The middle three shelves hold standard-sized binders and/or medium-sized books, while the very tall lower shelves are for large-format art, architecture and photography books, which can be heavy and cumbersome, therefore easier to handle down low. These bookshelves are constructed of walnut and have a frosted Plexiglas backing so the books don’t fall through.
By layering earth tones, loads of texture and mixed metals, designer Judith Balis created a warm and inviting space with a strong hint of masculinity. Touches such as the mesh fronting on the wood cabinets add an industrial element to the contemporary space, and the unique bluestone tile backsplash is at once subdued and a primary focal point in the room.
Red toned wood floors and a deep coffered wood ceiling connect the open floor design of this kitchen and dining room. A higher ceiling and clerestory windows open up the kitchen creating levels and a more spacious look. The long wood dining table compliments the long rectangular kitchen island. Stainless steel countertops give it a modern, industrial influence.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson borrowed 20 square feet from a neighboring bedroom to allow room for a luxurious free standing soaking tub in this newly renovated master bath. In addition to the industrial fixtures and decor, a glass shower with a rolling door creates a contemporary look in this now bright and spacious room.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson combined minimalistic industrial decor with warm, mid-century modern elements to create this gorgeous neutral, eclectic living and dining area. She replaced a dark wood banister with sleek glass and filled the space with clean white and warm wood furnishings.
The dining room is a study in minimalism. What makes the aesthetic work are the layers of texture and finishes that keep the eye delighted. In this dining room wood meets iron, meets brass, meets leather, meets sheepskin for a perfectly layered affair. Above the dining table, another piece designed by the couple, vintage lighting that can be found in industrial buildings, was installed. The found pieces were upcycled with the addition of black paint.
The goal with the fireplace was to create an architectural feature with enough visual weight to balance the large scale of the room and trusses. Incorporating industrial and rustic materials, including corten steel, rebar rods and angle iron, was also a key element of the design to tie together the home.The lighting through the pattern casts dramatic shadows across the golden walls, which were upholstered in burlap and then painted over for texture.
If you love the open flow and exposed structures of loft-style spaces but don’t happen to live in an actual loft, no worries: It’s easy to give any room in any house an industrial edge. In the living room of a midcentury house, for example, designer Michelle Lord left the ceiling beams beams and metal ducting exposed and hung open shelving created from plumbing pipes and reclaimed wood.
The assortment of fabrics in this eclectic bedroom brings warmth and personality to the space. Designer Sarah Richardson combined industrial and fine elements equally so nothing looks out of place. The dragon fabric on the headboard and footboard set the tone for the room, and patterns with the same color scheme are sprinkled throughout for a look that flows smoothly. Family heirlooms add a cozy touch.
Loft-style living demands cabinets with an industrial edge. Because Atlanta homeowners Sy and Nyvette Gray needed to fill a vast space and create much-needed storage, they selected kitchen cabinets from Ikea. They worked with designer Iesia D. King for their loft decor, and the minimalist cabinets even bring out the grayish tones of the aged exposed brick.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson combined minimalistic industrial decor with warm, mid-century modern elements to create this gorgeous neutral, eclectic living and dining area. She replaced a dark wood banister with sleek glass and filled the space with clean white and warm wood furnishings. An updated wet bar with extra seating and elevated dining area add interest and make the room ideal for entertaining.
As part of the McIntyre home transformation in Atlanta, GA, licensed contractor Chip Wade included a pullout pantry for ample storage, an expanding kitchen table for increased seating and a buffet style kitchen layout for prep, cooking and easy cleaning. Many elements were added for ease of use including this expandable table. The design aesthetic mimicked a sleek industrial kitchen, but added natural and warm elements like the tree trunk sink, wood table and brick floors. The transformation also includes open seating area to host family and church members, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.
