How to get an industrial design bathroom?

Although the industrial style has become one of the most important trends in interior design during the last decades, its origin is much earlier. It was at the beginning of the twentieth century when the revolutionary and functional nineteenth-century Iron Architecture gave way to Industrial Architecture, factories, warehouses, workshops and offices that, as the name suggests, had an industrial function.

During the 50s, many of these buildings had become obsolete for their original function and were occupied by students and artists who converted them into homes, giving rise to what have since been known as lofts.

Already in the XXI century, industrial interior design has spread to all types of homes, with an aesthetic in which straight lines, diaphanous and spacious spaces, exposed construction materials (beams, pillars, bricks …), metallic or natural colors and vintage or retro elements stand out.

The industrial decoration can be developed in all the rooms of a house, being the bathroom one of the most played by its particular physiognomy, and in this post I want to explain how the industrial style bathrooms are.

Black shower screens, exposed installations, designer taps… There are many possible combinations that will allow you to install a bathroom in the most fashionable style of this century.

The screens with aluminum or black steel profiles are clearly imposing themselves on the most minimalist and bland screens without profiles.

Essential to provide your bathroom with an industrial style, this type of screens print character to the bathroom, are resistant and durable and have a wide range of models that will allow you to combine them with other relevant elements of the room, such as taps, furniture, or lamps.

If you want to see different models I recommend that you take a look at this catalog dedicated to the black shower screen. Surely you will be surprised by the elegance of these models.

Open furniture with straight lines

The industrial style is the antipodes of the baroque style. The importance of functionality is far above that of free ornament. This does not mean that aesthetics is unimportant, but that it is the very simplicity of the functional that should permeate the entire decorative style.

The furniture of an industrial bathroom must be linear and simple, which are integrated into the whole without protruding, with colors and textures that impose on the form. In simplicity lies much of the taste of industrial interior design.

Raw materials

One of the characteristics of industrial interior design is its dynamism, the feeling of unfinished work in the middle of the construction process. Raw materials such as brick, cement or wood contribute to dilute the static in an environment of dynamic movement.

Combining different raw materials in furniture, floors, walls or ceilings can provide very interesting counterpoints from an aesthetic point of view.

Exposed walls and installations

The brick seen on the walls is possibly the most recognizable feature of the industrial style, both in the bathroom and in the rest of the house. These can be left with their original color or painted in a color that combines with the rest of the elements of the room.

A white color in the bricks of the wall can create a very desirable feeling of spaciousness, although dark tones provide great elegance to large bathrooms with good natural lighting. The options are endless.

As for the facilities, the bathroom is, next to the kitchen, the room that most allows you to play with these functional elements, making them decorative. The exposed pipes have a great visual force and, as with bricks, offer many possibilities when it comes to painting them in a way according to the rest of the decoration.

One of the most popular tones is copper, the most natural for this type of ducts, although a more colorful touch can provide greater joy to the space without losing its industrial essence.

Design and vintage elements

As we have indicated, the industrial style began its journey in the early twentieth century and reached its development in the middle of that century, which gives it an inevitable retro touch.

To enhance it, nothing better than betting on vintage functional and decorative elements, for example antique faucets with golden and copper tones, iron or brass accessories and accessories, retro furniture and mirrors, etc.

With regard to lamps, the most trendy are marking in the industrial decoration of bathrooms are those with bulbs with filaments in sight or lampholders with colorful cables.

As for the mirrors, the round ones with leather and metal structure are the ones that are hitting harder among interior designers.

Design elements

As you can see, the industrial style in the bathrooms offers a wide range of possibilities. The great advantage of this type of interior design is that functionality and aesthetics go hand in hand, and one cannot exist without the other.
