Once upon a time (but not too long ago), Industrial interior design wasn’t really even a design. It was merely a way to cheaply give new life to a warehouse or some other uninhabitable space that was being remodeled. Exposed duct work and iron supports was just a structural feature that was left exposed, not because it was visually desirable, but because hiding it would result in budget overages. However; the look has essentially gone viral. In part five of the series on interior design, we will cover the Industrial design.
In this part 4 of the series on interior design styles, I will be covering the Craftsman design style. If you have been following the series, then you have already read about the Traditional style, Mid-Century Modern, and the Transitional design style.
Welcome back to Part 3 of the series on design styles. If you have been following this series, then you have already read the articles on Traditional Design and Modern Designs. If you are just now finding this series, hop on over and check out those design styles after you finish with this one.
Recently, a new trend has arisen in home design and construction. The Tiny House! Maybe because of t.v. shows such as “Tiny House Builders” or “Tiny House, Big Living,” but whatever the reason, downsizing to the nth degree is fast becoming the thing to do.
Now, while I can’t say that a tiny house is everyone’s cup of tea, I can certainly say that I appreciate the reasoning behind it. I also can appreciate the skill and sometimes ingenious ideas that go into creating one of these special abodes.
Are you traditional?
I frequently come across people that are asking for advise or commenting on different interior design styles, and one thing that I have noticed is that many of these people don’t know exactly what constitutes a particular style. Generally, I try to show people photos of different rooms to see which ones they like, and what about those rooms that they find attractive. I do this because, more often than not, simply taking their word on what interior design styles they want may or may not turn out to be pleasing to them.
