12 Industrial Style DIY Home Projects
Industrial styles are trending and industrial-inspired furniture pieces and decorative accents are perfect for complimenting a variety of other interior design genres such a modern, minimalism, and farmhouse. If you’re looking to amp up that vision a bit more around your house, we’ve found some transformative projects that you can adopt and implement over the weekend. From the bedroom to the foyer, there’s 12 industrial style DIY home projects below that you can dive into.
1. Side Table
Check out this two-tiered side table found at The Golden Sycamore. It’s perfect for the living room, man cave downstairs, or even as a nightstand. It’s also a really simple blueprint to follow even if you’re a novice DIYer.
Love Grows Wild has an incredibly stylish stool up their sleeve and we’re completely here for the mixed material design. It’s the perfect combination of minimalism and industrial-quality finishings. Use these at the breakfast bar to top off your kitchen’s vision.
3. Towel Holders
There are smaller bits and pieces that you can bring or make inside the home that will help with that same industrial styling goals. These towels hooks from The Fogue Abode can top off the master or guest bath quite nicely. One for the hand towels works well but a set for bath towels works just as nicely.
4. Console Table
North Country Nest went with a bigger piece of furniture but that doesn’t mean the actual project is any harder than some of the predecessors. It too has a mixed material finish that helps with interest but also blends well with minimal or masculine visions. Slide this into the foyer or living room area.
5. Paper Towel Holder
Taryn Whiteaker went with a smaller and functional accent for the kitchen. This towel paper holder is such a fun finished project to complete and adds great interest to the kitchen countertops. Some recycled wood and metal pieces or piping is all you need to get started on it.
6. Picture Frames
Even your picture “frames” can have an industrial spin on them. We’re really loving this innovative design idea for your wall art pieces. Do this with your family photos, posters, or found art pieces. Grab the details by hopping on over to Designer Trapped.
7. Light Fixtures
Homedit gives us the scoop on this fabulous Edison-style light fixture. We can easily envision this in a guest bathroom or in a vanity space. And no, you don’t have to be an electrician to make this one come to fruition.
This DIY from Shanty 2 Chic has a subtle industrial finish, just check out the metal hardware addition – and those wheels! It’s a really great piece to highlight a home office, living room, or even a larger master bathroom.
9. Bar Cart
Grillo-Designs whipped together a bar cart that has a beautiful mix of both industrialism and Gatsby styling. This project has a bit more bells and whistles than some of the others but can still be completed within a weekend.
10. Clothing Rack
Another mixed material find that fits the industrial style bill can be found by visiting Sammy On State. Install this in the bathroom to hold the towels or in your walk-in closet to hang your outfits for the week. It’s also a great addition to a foyer, mudroom, or laundry area.
Gray House Studio will walk you through the process of install a full wall of industrial shelving to your living room or home office. This is the best way to add personality but also blend function with that vision. Organize, display, and transform within one project.
12. Laundry Hamper
This is an incredibly easy and innovative way to add some of that same, trendy style to the house. These metal bins turned laundry hampers from The Shabby Creek Cottage will keep the laundry ready, organized, and out of the corners.
