There was a time when industrial-style bathrooms were found primarily in converted urban warehouse lofts and unrenovated country farmhouses. But the nostalgia for an industrial past seems to have an irresistible appeal in an increasingly digital world, and industrial-inspired bathrooms have become a fixture everywhere from modern apartments to historic renovations and new build suburban homes.
While some industrial-style bathrooms still celebrate raw industrial materials like concrete and metal, rough finishes like exposed brick walls, and details like exposed ductwork and plumbing, industrial style is constantly evolving. These days, you’re likely to find a chic industrial-inspired aesthetic that is a more polished take on the original, mixing age old materials with new variations such as concrete-effect tiles or modern reproductions of vintage lighting or plumbing fixtures. And industrial style is increasingly combined with other popular styles such as minimalist or modern farmhouse to create hybrid spaces that have a timeless quality rooted in past traditions but are softened for modern lifestyles.
Check out these industrial-inspired bathrooms in a range of settings for ideas on how to incorporate some of this time tested style into your space.
