We’re on such an industrial kick lately! We just love the variety industrial details bring to any space and love that you don’t need a lot of them to make a big impact. Going through a few recent house tours we were surprised by just how many elements we came across — in houses of all types of styles.

Expanding the definition of industrial to include a lot of metal accents, functional pieces or just pieces whose aesthetics have been stripped down to a functional minimum, you can really find industrial ideas almost anywhere. We just think they’re a great way to add another layer of interest into a home’s style, even if the dominant style is a far cry from industrial. You don’t have to look or feel like you live in an empty loft to benefit from the industrial feel; you’ll see in these house tours how a little bit goes a long way and how flexible of a style it is!
