How To Create An Industrial Style Bathroom

5th November, 2015

Edge Modular Bathroom FurnitureThe trend for an industrial style bathroom in the home has been present for a few years now and is still going strong. Perhaps because the bathroom is already a place of plumbing and mechanisms, people are choosing to embrace this and exhibit it instead of hiding it. There are many ways to achieve an industrial style bathroom and a few different styles of the industrial theme.

Let’s start with your walls. The most sought after industrial look is the exposed brick wall. This gives the room a stylishly exposed look, but the balmy, terracotta colour of the bricks can bring a lot of warmth to the room. For a crisp minimalist look try painting your brick wall white. This look is incredibly on trend and goes great with black accessories.

One of the main materials used in an industrial style bathroom is copper. Exposed copper piping just gives that edgy finishing touch. Try and find a towel radiator where you can see the copper piping, like we’ve used in our brochure with our stunning Edge modular furniture.

When it comes to choosing sanitaryware, the simpler the better. Try our Faro WC and basin, which have an understated curved design. Alternatively, one of our bench basins on a deep countertop would fit in perfectly with the industrial style. We recommend the Lyra basin, which has a robust, rectangular shape.

If you choose to furnish your new industrial style bathroom with some of our fitted units, any of our black bar handles are a must. They come in a chrome or matt option, and with long and short sizes to complement doors and drawers. These will top off the look perfectly, and really fit in with an industrial style.

If you’re more interested in modular furniture, our Edge or Rise units are both simple, stylish, and perfect for a traditional looking bathroom. Look at how we’ve styled them in our brochure for some industrial inspiration!
