As seen on season 1 of Tiny Luxury, this 140-square-foot home was filled with high-end, industrial-style caged light fixtures at a fraction of what it would cost to outfit a standard-sized house. Perks!
The stairway pendant in the design studio was designed by Andrea Michaelson and was made using reclaimed factory coils with a vintage-style exposed bulb. The contemporary aesthetic with touches of industrial style was used throughout the entire space on everything from fixtures to furnishings.
Change up your room with an industrial light fixture, but in a color that doesn’t seem too harsh. These metal pendant shades, which are under $80, come in a spa blue that DIY and home decor blogger Wendy Durnwald selected. She saved even more by finding the vintage-like fixture at the Ballard Designs outlet.
The newly configured kitchen has a large center island, crisp white cabinetry with contrasting black hardware, new stainless steel appliances and custom vent hood. Joanna Gaines found vintage wooden corbels at a local salvage shop for the perfect finishing touch.
This light, bright semi-traditional kitchen has some vintage and industrial touches along with counter-to-ceiling subway tile, a deep farmhouse sink and rugged hardwood floors, as seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation.
As seen on HGTV’s Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott designed this living room to match the homeowner’s bright personality. The original cement flooring was stained a warmer color and dark gray paint was added to the walls, while the one wood-clad wall was kept as a feature. The large metal storage unit resembles an old set of lockers, which brings an industrial feel to the space. Two vintage side chairs and an old leather sofa were reupholstered in bright colors and prints, and a star-shaped light bulb installation was mounted on the wall as a finishing touch.
A honed granite countertop provides functional seating at the kitchen island in this narrow kitchen. Painted faux-antiqued cabinetry brings a bit of rusticity to the overall refined and spacious feel. Repurposed bricks create a façade on the accent wall while over-scaled subway tile with dark grout is used above Calcutta marble countertops. Vintage industrial lights hang over the island adding drama and whimsy.
Designer Kari McIntosh Dawdy used her skills to revamp a charming 20's home that had a kitchen from the 80's. She selected white cabinetry, a gray countertop and backsplash, an industrial-styled light fixture and satin hardware to create a charming, transitional look that retained the home's old-world charm.
On the wall opposite the bed in the master bedroom, a gallery wall displays the homeowner's professional photographs, adding interest and customization to the space. On the adjacent wall, a large window with airy curtains that math those in the living room lets in plenty of natural light, while a vintage ladder helps add rustic detail and provides a creative solution for hanging blankets in the space.
This bar and restaurant makes use of industrial elements in the space. The pendant lights add a vintage and industrial flair, while the wood bar height dining tables gives the space a rustic appeal. Both elements work well together to give the space an unique and warm appeal.
Bring an industrial touch to your home by wrapping wooden ladders with colored lights. This can also work as an alternative to a Christmas tree for use inside industrial spaces. For a tree alternative, consider 8-foot to 10-foot ladders, then use the space below the ladder to pile gifts.
Industrial lights are becoming more popular in styles and designs, which is bringing down the price point for new fixtures. “If you use authentic industrial lighting, it was meant to hang in factory. So you can find an old vintage light a lot of time and get it for a good deal,” says Stephanie Andrews, a designer for an Atlanta-based company, Balance Design.
