16 Industrial Interior Design Ideas You Can Incorporate For Your Home (2023)

What is Industrial Interior Design?

Industrial interior design is a design that takes aesthetic inspiration from industrial spaces, like old factories and warehouses. Elements such as brick walls, exposed pipes and weathered concrete surfaces like cement screed floors are incorporated into the design for a gritty and raw aesthetic.

How do I make my house look industrial?

Industrial interior design tends to inspire a lot of at-home DIY projects or custom-made furnishings as it may be challenging to find furniture pieces that match the rugged style of the industrial look.

Interior paint colours used in an industrial interior design tend to stick to a neutral, grey or dark palette to recreate the raw cement look of industrial space – although bright pops of colour through unique furniture pieces are not unheard of.

Why is industrial interior design popular?

When executed well, the industrial interior design can look sleek and clean-cut, while maintaining a rugged and natural aesthetic in a sophisticated manner. It is one of the top interior design trends that also gives you plenty of room for exercising your creative touch.

There are plenty of ways on how to incorporate industrial elements like an unfinished brick wall or exposed pipes and fixtures into your home. Recycling and dabbling with salvaged materials and furniture can help to add a unique and personal touch to your home that cannot be replicated elsewhere.

The industrial interior design often interweaves different textures into the space of your house in the form of metal and wood surfaces. This helps to prevent the industrial style from looking excessively stark or cold.

A careful combination of different textures and styles can help create a cool design ensemble that is truly one of a kind.

10. Industrial Scandinavian at Keat Hong Close

When you mix and match design elements from two or three different interior design themes, you are bound to come up with something unique with a character and personality like no other. And the practical representation of this can be seen in this design portfolio where the Industrial theme meets Scandinavian in a beautiful aesthetic of elegance and style. We can see light neutral colours with natural and warm lights that are representative of Scandinavian themes. To bring in the industrial elements, black exposed pipes can be seen crawling in different locations on the ceiling. Wrought iron hanging lamps from the ceiling show the industrial aspect whereas its geometrical shapes and warm light bulbs bring in the Scandinavian elements in the design.

11. 32 Marine Crescent

Another uniquely beautiful industrial theme design is at 32 Marine Crescent. The typical industrial elements of black exposed pipes can be seen throughout the house. But since that black colour with the white walls and floors can become a bit too dull, colour is added in the design in the form of a reddish coral shade for the kitchen. This cute and fun colour shade has been used for the kitchen cabinets which go perfectly with the white overhead cabinets and grey countertops. The dark brown wood door also helps to balance the otherwise black and white dominant interior.

For the living room, we can see that pop of colour has been added in the form of a red couch. The black top coffee table with the black bench also add to the overall industrial theme of the design.

12. 421 Serangoon Central

Another unique industrial design interior is at 421 Serangoon Central. In this design, we can see the black exposed pipes, track lights, and a black fan representative of this design. But apart from those, we also see many other elements that have been used to enhance the appearance of the interior. A red brick wall serves as the accent wall behind the TV. Black lamp posts also adorn the interior on one side. A red phone booth adds a touch of creativity to this living room. The wooden TV console, coffee table, and benches are all given a rugged appearance in line with the industrial theme.

From another angle of the living room, we can see metal net partitions that separate the living room from the adjoining area. A wrought-iron gate separates the kitchen from the living room. The walls paints also mimic cemented walls which are very important to bring the industry essence into the space.

13. 277 Tampines Street

Another interior design that is quite out of the ordinary has been discussed here. This design is a mixture of rock ‘n roll and industrial themes which give it a very upbeat and colourful ambience. The black exposed pipes can be seen on the ceilings as well as the walls. Raw wooden centre tables and leather sofas add rugged elements to this design. To cater for the rock ‘n roll theme, neon lights and signs are used.

The bedroom features a rock wall that has a distinctive texture which when combined with the exposed pipes and modern lighting creates a beautiful harmony of hip hop and rugged elements.

14. 104 Tampines St 11

If you think that industrial themes tend to be a bit too raw and rugged, then you may be wrong. There are ways in which you can add a stylish and elegant touch to even an industrial design as can be seen in the following image. Exposed pipes on the ceiling along with a brick wall architecture on one wall show the raw elements in the design. But instead of a typical red brick wall, white bricks are used and that too in a creative pattern. Other modern elements such as a glass showcase shelf, couches, and wood floors add an elegant ambience to the interior.

For the bedroom, we can see similarly exposed pipes on the walls and ceiling. For the cupboard, barn style wood and iron doors have been used to add a touch of creativity and ruggedness to the space.

15. HDB BTO 4 Room At Fernvale

In this beautiful house design, a beautiful and lively interior has been created by combining industrial design elements such as exposed pipes and a black ceiling with some colourful elements such as a blue sofa and a blue wall. Indirect lighting from underneath the living room platform adds a beautiful contrast to the track lights on the ceilings.

In the bathroom, we can also see the black exposed pipes with modern toilet fixtures. Neutral bohemian tiles on the floor create an interesting and unique touch in this bathroom.

16. HDB BTO 4 Room at Punggol

Another beautiful representation of a modern industrial design has been shown beautifully in the following portfolio where the new and trendy elements meet the raw and rugged architecture. The black borders on almost every piece of furniture and carpentry along with the exposed pipelines add raw aesthetics to the interior. However, a glossy floor in cement colours adds the touch of modernity and elegance to create balance and harmony. The hanging lamps also show the black wires that have been rolled on a raw wood plank to create that extra effect of industrialism in the design.

In the bedroom of this house, a platform has been created that serves as the bed as well. We can see that this platform and the adjoining wall is made of raw wood with a very distinctive texture and grain to add to the overall industrial theme.


While there are decorative elements common to the industrial interior design aesthetic, not all industrial spaces, have to be the same cookie-cutter design. There are definitely some interesting rustic design ideas such as this that you can explore and incorporate in your interior design project.
