Austerity, refined elegance, large spaces and a limited color palette are the features that are particularly striking in the case of this industrial style. The mentioned style arose from necessity during the crisis years, today it is considered an extremely sophisticated symbol of taste, freedom and artistic aspirations in interior design.
What is an industrial style?
The industrial style is derived from the United States, where in the period of the 1950s recession in the real estate market there were plenty of abandoned huge factory and workshop spaces at low prices. The real popularity with a hint of snobbism, however, brought him the 1960s and 1970s, when post-industrial premises, from the twelfth century called lofts, took over semi-public artists in the neighborhoods of Soho, Chelsea and Brooklyn, creating interconnected workshops, apartments and exhibition halls. Such room was the legendary New York studio Andy Warhol, located in the former hat factory, Silver Factory, painted all in silver color, where the entire New York avant-garde of those years met.
In the case of authentic lofts created in converted factory rooms or soft lofts modeled on them in new buildings, the characteristic feature of the industrial style that immediately strikes the eye is the space, most often open, avoiding dividing walls between the kitchen and the living room or room and bathroom. Unusual, large windows are a source of light and often the most important element of the interior design. The left walls most often reveal the material from which they were made, ie brick or raw concrete. In an industrial apartment there is no clear division into individual zones, which increases the spatial effect of the premises. A smart solution for the optical expansion of space in the case of smaller apartments will be the skillful use of mirrors, which we can put out the entire wall.
Do concrete wall panels fit only the industrial style?
Definitely, concrete wall panels perfectly match the industrial style. It is thanks to such panels that we can give character to any interior. You can not forget that by deciding on such panels made of concrete, we can also combine them with other styles. Thanks to this, our interior will look great and we will feel good in it.
