Industrial bedrooms exude calm and cool. Exposed brick walls, iron finishes and unpolished floors carry the creativity of the artist – and what better way to experience the house-in-an-old-factory vibe than in the place you sleep? These forty industrial bedrooms show the scope and stretch of the industrial genre, coupled with soft and playful finishes. Go back to your childhood, with a roughshod wooden bed hanging from the ceiling. Hang iron pipes on your wall to hear how the water runs. Throw woollen throws and suede chairs beside factory carts, softening harsh surfaces. See our guide’s tricks to creating beautiful industrial bedrooms.
Industrial bedrooms can carry colour. Hanging on a stark concrete wall, a double-angled violet painting draws towards the centre. A velvet wingback adds luxury to a steel hover lamp, while a pair of lamps add steel and copper to an inviting, velvet-covered futon.

Make your industrial bedroom mismatch – on purpose. Shattered factory windows are filled with stained glass; the bed covered with pumpkin leather. Bach floorboards, an exposed brick wall, grated ceiling fan and variety of patterns ensure a different décor at every turn.
Show industrial sleek in different shades. This loft bedroom oozes sophistication with a multi-layered brick wall in grey, greyscale photographs and a darker mottled rug. White and brown make an appearance in a soft suede duvet, sliding wardrobe and simple floorboards beneath.
Only have a small space to work with? This over-the-stair-top bedroom makes a haven all its own, with a typographic artwork as the centrepiece. Clever inlets in the divider provide a bedside table, while muted grey and white bedding, expanding grey walls and floorboards make the space look larger.
Book lovers rejoice in this industrial bedroom’s shelf space. Filling the space between two factory-style windows, the books’ many colours add flavour to a décor largely white and grey. A subtle mirror behind the bed gives the illusion of book-stacked walls, while copper inlet pendants add to its eclecticism.
Typical of the style, the exposed brick wall is an industrial asset. This bedroom makes the most of it, by drawing the eye with a chalkboard triptych, caged lighting and a slatted wooden ceiling. A roughshod wooden wardrobe and white wall provide breathing space and storage, while a geometric rug beckons sleepers to bed.
