Industrial decor is taking elements of the factory, science or even wire and incorporating them into the interior of your home. It is currently all the rage, and lucky for us, it’s easy to do! Just throwing in a piece of two can really add this eclectic vibe into an already stellar room. Another plus side of industrial decorating is that it’s basically up-cycling! By buying things that were once used for something else entirely, an incorporating them into your life, you are giving them a second chance! From turning old light bulbs into center pieces for a coffee table, or repurposing vintage school lockers as shelves, these salvaged materials are used as treasure. While half the fun in decorating with an industrial flair is the hunt, I thought I’d help you out with a few ideas that can currently be found at Antique Plaza.
One easy way to incorporate industrial into your space is with some vintage school lockers. Not only will the metal create an interesting contrast with other materials in your room, but the lockers can actually be used as shelves in order to give them some added utility. Leaving one or more of the doors open and creating an aesthetically pleasing display inside can help to blend industrial with the current look of your space. You can even remove a door to help with this effect! On the left, you see inspiration on how lockers can really add a spark of uniqueness, as well as some lockers that are currently for sale in the store.
