Industrial Interior Architecture

Let’s start off by talking about common industrial style interior architecture elements that are found in these types of homes. You’ll need to think about how you want the walls, ceilings, and floors of your industrial dining room to look. Industrial dining rooms have several key features that give them a quintessential look. Here are some examples of the ‘bones’ of an industrial home.

Open Layout

Our first industrial style dining room shows the open layout concept commonly seen in industrial style lofts and apartments. One room flows effortlessly into the next, and walls tend to be exterior facing. This industrial dining room has gorgeous leather chairs around a rustic dining table. A brown leather sofa sits perpendicular to the dining table. A large wall of windows lets the natural light flood in the raw space.

Brick Walls

Red brick walls are another popular architectural feature of industrial residences. This brick wall has white paint slowly peeling down from the ceiling, giving it an unfinished, distressed look. A white ladder leans against the wall holding reading material. A coat rack hangs on the other end.

Concrete Floors and Tin Walls

I love how unique this dining room is. It has gray concrete floors that have been smoothed over and a silver tin wall. The brick wall has been painted white. A silver metal dining table and metal dining chairs make up the dining room furniture.

Black Metal Frame Glass Panes

This dining room has been separated by black metal framed glass panes. There is even a sliding door that can be opened and closed as needed. I like how this dining room door doesn’t hinder light, but still creates a barrier.

Exposed Metal Beams

Many industrial homes feature exposed metal beams and pipes. Here you can see the black metal ceiling beams which support the roof above the dining room.
