In the middle of the last century in America began to make plants outside the city, and the vacant industrial buildings turned into residential. This is how the industrial style appeared, which is also often called the loft style. Initially, rather poor people settled in the industrial premises re-equipped for housing, now this style is considered to be elite, although even today the design of the premises in a factory spirit is not too expensive. Knowing the basic requirements for interior decoration, interior items, decor and lighting, everyone can turn their housing into an apartment in the loft style.
Industrial style in the interior is of two types: natural, when properly decorated room is actually located on the former enterprise, and artificial, when the building had and has a completely different purpose (residential, public). In the first case, in order to give the room proper appearance, it is enough not to hide pipes, stairs and other structures characteristic of factory buildings. In the second, such architectural elements are created artificially.
The industrial style is more suitable for bars, shops, creative workshops, cultural institutions and other public facilities. However, there are fans of this trend, who make their accommodation in a factory spirit.
Apartment in the loft style is suitable for a creative, freedom-loving person, not bound by the framework of conventions, not experiencing the need for privacy. It is also important that a fan of loft style has at its disposal a housing of at least 100 square meters, and preferably even more. With such areas, you can turn an apartment into an industrial style pattern.
Kitchen and Bedroom Design Ideas
The most comfortable rooms in any apartment are the kitchen and the bedroom. It seems that making them in a loft style is an impossible task, but it is not. It is enough to show imagination - and everything will turn out.
An industrial-style kitchen can be quite warm and even sweet. Untreated wood furniture, a brick wall, a steel panel in front of the working part, a coarse lamp help. The walls can also be decorated with tiles, laying it so that it resembled brickwork. Lockers on the walls are undesirable; they should be replaced with open shelves. If desired, the pipes and beams passing under the ceiling can also be used: for fixing lamps, hanging for drying kitchen towels.
The industrial-style bedroom can also have brick walls, but no more than two: the rest can be made of metal or frosted glass. Do not interfere with a huge window. The bedroom should be separated from other zones by a partition. Cabinets, if you can not do without them, it is better to make built-in. One of the walls can be decorated with a poster or avant-garde painting. The only furniture that is needed here is the bed. It should not stand out from the general style, but at the same time it can be made less cold than all the decoration of a room by putting a bright coverlet on it, for example, a patchwork or in ethno-style. The final touch in the interior design of the bedroom can be a chandelier with a bright metallic shade.
