Industrial Chic / Recycled Materials
What started, naturally enough, as a style seen in converted lofts and other commercial areas converted to living spaces, industrial chic has moved to single-family urban, suburban, and rural homes. The style combines utilitarian design and worn and areas converted, vintage materials like reclaimed wood and recycled materials and is characterized by the combination of raw materials like iron, wood (especially repurposed lumber), aluminum, galvanized or stainless steel, glass (both new and vintage or recycled), and recycled plastic for building materials.
Common elements include exposed brick or stone walls, concrete floors, exposed beams, unfinished or natural-looking wood and other materials, and stainless-steel accents. The no-frills look is common especially in architectural styles like Mid-century Modern and Contemporary Farmhouse
