Exposed Pipes and Ducts. One signature element of industrial interior design is the presence of features that people typically try and conceal, such as pipes and ducts. You can imagine what a liberating strategy this proved to be when the concept of warehouse apartments began gaining popularity! Converting former industrial spaces (such as factories) to residential living may have been a challenge, but leaving a few raw elements exposed reminded residents of the buildings' original purpose and eliminated further construction. What may have started as a necessity became a sought-after style, and many design enthusiasts now specifically seek out this “unfinished” look. Exposed pipes can also be a fabulous choice for all-white spaces, as the brightness of the walls and ceiling are a sharp contrast to the metal of the piping, as shown below. In addition to metal pipes and ducts, the presence of metal on walls and doors is another key feature of industrial design.
Define your personal needs. An environment, such as a bedroom, has different needs according to those who use it. One person needs a single bed, whereas a kids' room for two brothers will need two single beds or a bunk bed.Needs can also get more specific. The kids' room for siblings may require two night tables or a larger surface for studying. Thus you can customize the list of furniture needed for your project. It is important to stop and think what your family really needs, and how to resolve the issue of your home furniture to make day-to-day life more comfortable for everyone. Complementary furniture, Ii order to carry out certain activities, some complementary furniture pieces are also needed, such as storage pieces, which are essential to maintaining order. A room may need a large library if its inhabitants are book collectors, or perhaps a desk, a table for a computer, a TV cabinet, and so on. In a dining room, you can choose to place a cabinet for utensils that are not stored in the kitchen, such as fine tableware and cutlery, glasses, etc.
Size, dimensions, and shape of furniture for home. Once you've defined what furniture is needed, size and shape come into play. Practicality, aesthetics, style and the space available should be considered. Practical considerations are directly related to the furniture's function, although specifications for each piece should be defined – for example, how many drawers are needed in a chest of drawers? How many guests will the dining table need to support?. Plastic considerations (aesthetics) are related to the integrated space design. For example, if the furniture will be straight or curved, if space requires tall or low furniture, etc. Finally, as mentioned above, space determines the size of the furniture and also the distribution of the same. The different pieces of furniture have to always be related to space before buying them. Check to see if their sizes are appropriate for the overall design – for example, a sectional may not be the best choice for a small living area. Also, the physical space of the room and the ways furniture can be placed need to be considered, such as the size of a window or proximity to a door.
