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.
