Grey and robust
Neutral and natural shades work best in an industrial interior; they form a perfect complement to the robust elements. Black and white are always good options, but softer grey, in particular, is more typical to this trend: it emphasises the concept of steel that is so characteristic of the industrial look. Is an over-abundance of grey perhaps a little too stark for you? You could consider painting a wall in an accentuating colour, such as a bright neon colour, or an earth tone like burgundy. Does your house have a red brick wall? Don’t plaster it, because authentic walls like this are just the thing to lend a cosy atmosphere to your home.
More than just concrete
The past few years have seen an immense upgrade in the architectural application of concrete: from a material reserved entirely for construction purposes to a much-admired and popular finish. Have a concrete floor installed, or choose an imitation floor that mimics the concrete look to perfection. The robust allure and typical grey colour guarantee a minimalist look. One step further? On the wall, on the ceiling, in kitchen counters or washbasins: this material can be applied as an aesthetic element just about anywhere!
