1. Choose a neutral color palette.
2. Play up contrast.
3. Avoid over-decorating.
4. Feature lots of raw materials in your design.
5. And decorate with industrial-style accents, too.
6. Consider a concrete countertop.
7. Or try a galvanized steel tub.
Industrial style often incorporates lots of "unfinished" looking materials and textures. Whether it's exposed pipes beneath the sink or skipping a traditional tub in lieu of a more rustic galvanized steel option, like this one at the Stickett Inn in Barrywood, NY.
8. Consider a trough style sink.
Let the main fixtures of your space speak for themselves by keeping other decor accents to a minimum. Black subway tile is the perfect backdrop for the trough-style sink in this industrial bathroom designed by Raili of RailiCA. Three woven baskets draw your eye to the exposed plumbing below, while providing extra storage space, too.
9. And say no to shower curtains.
10. Exposed plumbing is a must-have.
Exposed plumbing and industrial bathrooms pretty much go hand-in-hand. This jaw-dropping bathroom in a miner's cottage from the 1860s designed by Kali Cavanagh isn't shy in the least about putting its shiny pipes on display.
11. Lastly, warm up your look with pops of color.
Industrial style can sometimes feel hard and cold. So to keep your look lively and warm by adding pops of color. We love the welcoming "Oh Hey" floor tile, red stools, and round vanity mirror with red accents in this small bathroom designed by Raili of RailiCA. Natural elements like greenery and exposed wood help, too.
