Industrial shelving goes beyond being functional and becomes practical and beautiful. It provides a rustic look using different types of materials to help it stand out and make a difference. When the right materials and design come together in any industrial decor project, it can breathe life into a home and pull all of the elements together.
Wood Frame Shelving – One of the better-known options available for any type of industrial shelving is the farmhouse look. It tends to start out fairly basic (sometimes nothing more than a rectangle), but it is the material used to design and build the shelves that really makes a difference. Shelving can be included in almost any room and various nick-knacks can be added to embellish its own, eclectic look.
Floating Shelves – There is often an opportunity to hang shelves on the wall and this can really add something to the room. When industrial shelving is hung on the wall, it shouldn’t overwhelm the room with a very specific look. The shelving itself should blend in with the wall by emphasizing the room’s architectural structure. But as always, it is what is put on the shelves that will make a difference.
Pipe Shelving – One of Pinterest’s hottest trends is DIY pipe shelving. Readymade materials can be purchased at any home improvement store and pieced together to make an artful and functional masterpiece. Regardless of whether it is a freestanding unit or a hanging wall unit adding an piped shelving to the home is an element that makes an industrial statement. It does work well on its own, but when it is used in conjunction with other types of design, that is when it truly shines.
