If you want to recreate this look in your home, take a look at these 8 industrial-style bedroom ideas for some mood-setting interiors.

Industrial-style bedroom decor idea: opt for a neutral color palette

Another way to create that mood-setting industrial-style bedroom is with a rich, neutral color palette. Nothing does the job better than the timeless neutrals color palette by Kelly Hoppen. If you’re not using industrial materials—wood, metal, concrete—you can recreate them through your paint colors. Take a look at our guide on how to style Timeless Neutrals in your bedroom. Their greiges, beiges and charcoal greys are dark, sexy, and very grown-up. They won’t fail to create a relaxing yet sophisticated ambience in your industrial-style bedroom.

Industrial-style bedroom decor ideas: exposed brick or concrete walls

​​An exposed brick feature wall behind your bed is a one-way ticket to creating an industrial-style bedroom. Those terracotta tones are instantly warming, whilst their rough appearance creates a textured backdrop. Perfect in a loft renovation where you can make the most or irregular sloped ceilings or exposed beams. 

Alternatively, you can expose your brickwork by removing the plaster from your walls (although we’d recommend getting a professional in to do this, as this depends on the quality of your masonry). If you’re able to achieve exposed brick walls you’re guaranteed to get the industrials-style decor spot on.

Industrial-style bedroom decor idea: wall panelling

If exposed brickwork is too much of a project or it’s simply not possible in your home, why not think about rustic wall panelling? We’d recommend using reclaimed wood to create a shiplap cladding feature wall. Keep your wood untreated for that industrial-style look. As with brickwork, it adds texture, visual interest, and a subtle warmth to your home. Perfect for creating a cosy feel in your bedroom. Yes, that’s right, industrial-style bedrooms can be cosy too.
