It’s an industrial evolution. Industrial chic is one of the hottest trends in St. Louis area bathroom design as we approach the end of 2019. Inspired by the industrial look of the Roaring 1920’s, exposed pipes and trough sinks are standard features of industrial-inspired baths. “Less is more” is key to making the industrial look work. Minimal decorative pieces is part of an industrial motif. Industrial style requires paying attention to the design’s raw, unfinished components such as combining a wood ceiling with exposed plumbing or drawing attention to framed shower doors. We recommend playing up the bathroom’s aesthetic by adding accents wherever possible without overdoing them.Another opportunity to make a bold, attention-drawing statement is to use industrial-themed materials such as a concrete countertop, sink or galvanized metal bathroom fixtures and tubs. Wooden shelves can be used along with woven baskets, small galvanized buckets or other containers to finish an industrial bath look.
Industrial design typically lends itself to the use of dark tones including black, metal, brick and wood in combination with white and neutral tones. Adding pops of color and polished metal adds warmth to the bath and also a certain dynamic energy. Again, less is more when using pops of color in an industrial bathroom. You don’t want a bright color to become a focal point.
