Industrial architectural style initially penetrated European interior design and architecture due to the many former factory buildings that were no longer used. In order not to be neglected, adjustments are made so that these buildings can be used as decent and comfortable dwellings. However, despite some adjustments, the original character of the building was intentionally not removed.
Industrial style usually uses monochromatic colors and is masculine. Some of the materials used also tend to be rough like metal and steel which are intentionally exposed to show their character. The material used also uses recycled materials or industrial materials such as glass, iron and aluminum which are processed in such a way that they can be used as attractive interior elements.
Columns or roof structures are often left to be seen clearly, some are finished, but some are unfinished. One of the most visible of industrial style is the exposure of the appearance of bricks. There are also bricks painted in bright colors such as white or shade like gray. The use of concrete floors is also often applied to give a strong impression.
The furniture used tends to be without finishing and more shows the original color. Wood furniture is usually not painted, but only refined to anticipate termites. Iron, aluminum and stainless furniture are also not painted at all, but are left as they are as authentic materials
