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.
Butler's Pantry Provides Easy Space to Serve Food to Adjacent Family Room
A small butler's pantry with sink, microwave and counter space make it easy to serve snacks for epic TV binge-watching sessions in the adjacent family room. The whitewashed brick wall matches the accent wall just out of sight in the family room.
Guests are immediately introduced to the life from the bar. Original historic brick towers behind the bar to provide a dramatic backdrop, while an adjacent counter seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor seats to draw energy from the street.
Urban-Style Bar With Vintage Fireplace & Warm Wood Floors
Industrial metal barstools pair with exposed ductwork and a vintage-style fireplace to create an urban look for this restaurant's bar. Sleek pendant lights add a contemporary touch, and rustic wood floors lend warmth underfoot.
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.
The blend of textures in soothing neutral tones create a mix that is very inviting and balanced in this industrial front entryway. Originally, the home had two separate circular stairs units, one to get the basement, and one to access the Crows Nest above. By deleting one and fabricating a new larger circular stair that goes from Crows Nest to the multipurpose room below, an open space was created that is functional and interesting.
These industrial-inspired stairs are one of a kind, with diamond plate treads and risers, along with a custom railing made from pipe and mesh. A glass block window follows the lines of the stairway and ushers natural light into the space.
Industrial-Style Staircase Features Floating Steps, Wood Handrail
This staircase is more than a means to the top floor; rather, its metal rails and floating steps transform the feature into a major point of interest. What's more, the open sides allow even more sunlight to filter throughout the house.
Renovated Basement With Wet Bar and Industrial Lighting
This spacious basement was renovated to include a wet bar with industrial pendant lighting and a stainless steel countertop. The nearby staircase features a stone covered accent wall and hardwood steps.
To create flexibility in the children's area, a sliding door subdivides the space for nighttime and nap time, creating two separate bedroom spaces, each with its own entrance. During the day, though, parents can keep the space open, creating a great big playroom for the kids.
