To further play up the industrial modern cottage vibe in this small beach house, a concrete slab floor and industrial HVAC vent running through the ceiling were left in place. Shiplap was added to one accent wall to bring in that coastal element. A blue painted sliding door opens into the bathroom and brings a little bit of color to this space.
Instead of springing for a built-in island, consider a freestanding one made from recycled materials. Case in point: the Industrial Recycled High Bench Table, shown in Shabby Chic White, $1,999, designed by Will Marx for GHIFY. Handmade in Brisbane, Australia, of native Australian timber, the design was inspired by the architecture of Queensland. Says GHIFY, “This island is one of our signature designs, which has been hugely popular as a kitchen island for added counter space, as a high bench dining table for the eat-in kitchen and as a workbench/desk. It is a timeless industrial recycled styled table that can be custom-built to any size, color or finish. Each table comes with a 10-year warranty.”
This modern, industrial kitchen features white cabinets, a range hood with shiplap and sheet metal, and industrial-feel pendant lights above the kitchen island. Guests can enjoy a cup of coffee at one of four bar chairs and enjoy an outdoor view from the kitchen window.
Weathered white planks create a stunning beach-inspired backdrop to this cozy nursery. Light fixtures and a metal changing table nod to industrial style. In order to take advantage of the tall ceilings, large canvases are placed close to the top of the wall and the curtains are hung high above the top of the window.
This modern loft kitchen highlights natural materials in the marble countertops, backsplash and kitchen island. The stainless steel range hood and matching chef's oven give the space an industrial feel paired with dark hardwood floors and black cushioned bar chairs.
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.
White cabinets line the walls of this modern industrial kitchen with light hardwood floors. Stainless steel appliances are flanked by cabinets with brass hardware and marble countertops, plus a shiplap and sheet metal range hood.
Loft Bathroom With Subway Tile, Open Shower & Double Vanity
This bathroom is exactly what you might expect in a loft such as this: spacious and without division. An open shower with a bench, surrounded by subway tiles, is the highlight of the space. A double vanity with a huge mirror promises you'll never fight for mirror space again. The all-white palette assures a fresh, streamlined look.
Use Scale and Material To Create an Urban Loft Feel
Among the hallmarks of loft spaces are their size and the visibility of materials that might otherwise be hidden or treated to a smooth finish: metal pipes and ductwork and well-worn wood flooring, for example. Architect May Sung explains how she used these elements to loft-style look: “In this kitchen, we utilized proportion and texture to create interest to the space. The texture of the reclaimed wood juxtaposed next to the industrial element of the table legs created warmth and coziness, emphasized by the over-scaled ceiling pendant.”
This fresh living room area features neutral furniture, including a gray and white striped armchair, and polished concrete floors, giving it an industrial touch. Sliding glass doors offer natural light, while an orange modern painting adds a pop of color.
Weathered white planks create a stunning beach-inspired backdrop to this cozy nursery. Light fixtures and a metal changing table nod to industrial style. The marquee sign behind the crib, not only lights up, but the letters can also be changed at any time to write sweet messages or celebrate milestones.
A zinc-clad barn door conceals this walk in pantry when not in use. Shelves made from chicken wire and angle iron allow crumbs fall to the counter instead of being stuck on the shelves, making for easy cleanup.
Guests are handed a white subway tile with a number for their food order. At the table, they find 2x4 stud table toppers wrapped with "Inspired" questions, to strike thought-provoking and fun conversation. Questions are themed around topics like art, music, film, photography and pop culture.
