    Industrial home decor is functional, minimalist, and celebrates the raw materials used. Metals, glass, concrete, wood, natural and distressed finishes, and exposed walls and beams are all mainstays of this style. Stick to neutral colours in a cool or warm palette of your choosing, and avoid patterns. If you love function and a mix of modern and vintage, you will love the industrial decor style.

    1. Leave windows bare, or use roller shades. Alternatively, select solid curtains in neutral colours like grey, black, white, or brown.

    2. Choose a long, low-profile sofa in a neutral colour, like this sofa-cum-bed. You can also go for a very simple and functional single mattress on the floor, like a divan. Use a neutral coloured cover and long, rectangular cushions or pillows.

    3. This very hipster brick decal is perfect if you want the beauty of an exposed brick wall without the hassle.

    4. Avoid rugs. If you want, get a flat (low pile) rectangular rug in a neutral colour. A jute carpet works well too.

    5. If the walls in your home are old, or the sinks have a patina, embrace this! If everything looks too new and shiny, make it look distressed with chalk paint.
