Looking to give your home an edge? Say hello to industrial style. Acting in direct opposition to excessive frills and fluff, the addition of salvaged items, "cold" metals and exposed elements all work together to create a functional, workshop vibe. But for most people, the biggest roadblock of getting into industrial style is the question of "how do I keep my happy home from turning into a full-on factory?!"

Going all-out can be a challenge, especially if you're unsure about wanting to commit to an entirely utilitarian look.
