How To Achieve The Industrial Interior Design in Singapore

In contrast to concealing building materials of their home, the industrial interior design distinctly displays these materials. This accomplishes the kind of raw, unfinished look that has recently become an incredibly popular design style. By blending wood and metal elements in a unique and upscale way, the industrial design mixes the old with the new. Here's how you can achieve this interior design in your Singapore home.

1. Warm and Neutral Color Palettes

Similar to the contemporary design style, industrial interior design features both warm and neutral hues. Common colours are shades of grey, black, brown and white.

If you want to go bold, rich warm-toned colours such as brick red, burnt orange and dark green are excellent choices.

2. Open plan spaces

An open floor plan refers to how a bigger space is formed through the removal of partition walls. Homes in the industrial style typically do better with this floor plan as the openness helps to prevent the space from looking too overwhelmed by the multiple textures and exposed elements.

3. Texture and materials

A key characteristic of the industrial design style is the exposure of materials. Rather than concealing the materiality or infrastructure, it celebrates and even enhances it.

The theme often highlights materials such as metal, wood, stone and bricks. Raw elements, such as exposed pipes and ducts, wooden or steel beams and unfinished walls, all serve as part of the aesthetic.

4. Polished Concrete Flooring

Polished concrete flooring is a relatively affordable flooring option that requires low maintenance. The material is both clean yet natural-looking, and complements the industrial style perfectly.

5. Vintage or abstract furniture

A plus point about industrial design is how fluid it is. Depending on the look that you’re going for, you can incorporate either abstract or vintage furniture, or make use of both!

A very common example would be the use of pipes for lighting, along with large black cupboards to serve as storage.
