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.
Railings are wonderful structures to run along stairs, decks, and other places for support when descending or ascending safely. Although initially designed for safety, they are now rang everywhere from rustic and simple, to an elaborate and refined.
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.
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.
This spacious basement wet bar features stainless steel countertops paired with dark brown cabinets and a red brick accent wall. Industrial style pendant lights and bar stools complete the look of the area, while a nearby pool table provides an additional space for entertaining guests.
A beautifully designed staircase that blends old and new. The staircase uses thick wood slab treads that seem to float on the white painted steel stringer. This metal look is a industrial modern and possibly could be made a bit more elegant with larger posts, or incorporating wood to the rails/posts.
A custom-designed railing made from mesh and metal piping lines this one-of-a-kind stairway. Corrugated tin adds interest on the ceiling, as does a custom light fixture dubbed "Daddy Long Legs" by the design team. Glass block windows bring in loads of natural light.
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.
Small Industrial Bar Area with Glass Shelves and Granite Countertop
Install glass shelving to stock up a bar and display favorite bottles and garnishes. For an inexpensive industrial feature, Carlton Walker and Tony McNeal of McNeal Walker Interiors repurposed an old metal kitchen light with a cage purchased at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
