Want to bring the timeless Industrial style to your home office? Exposed concrete furniture, welded elements and decor, and heavy-duty desks are just a few staples to get you started on this cool style. Keeping things minimal and clutter-free are essential decor rules, along with using cool tones and a mix of manmade and natural materials. An industrial home office design is all about stripping back any ornamentation and letting natural and man-made materials shine. This can be a desk that is a combination of metal bolts and rugged wood, or a room with exposed brick. It’s all about giving that factory, and industrial setting feel to a space while keeping it functional and comfortable to use. A home office should, of course, be functional first and foremost for whatever purpose you need it for. This could be a large table, used for collaborative work, or a small desk that is perfect for occasional work from home days. Either way, we have plenty of beautiful industrial home office design ideas to get you started! A home office needs a few things to work functionally; a desk, a comfortable working chair, and lighting. Depending on each individual's needs, storage and additional seating could also be a factor in the industrial home office layout. Task lighting is very important, and industrial styling lighting is very cool...we think so at least! With exposed bulbs, wiring and typically a metal, wood or a combination of the two, industrial style lighting is all about exposing the elements. If you think about lighting in an old warehouse or urban loft, it’s anything but fancy but is effective, and in industrial style, it makes the space. Though Industrial style is rugged and the furniture may appear rough or unforgiving, you can still have comfort in your industrial home office design. A few ways to ensure some modern comfort with this style is to add some layers of softness amongst the rugged nature. This could be a large upholstered chair in worn-in leather. You could include a cushion desk chair or layer rugs under your desk for extra comfort on your feet. Cowhide rugs are popular in industrial design, and when layered over a solid rug or even on polished concrete floors, they can add a hip feel that is undeniably stylish.

Many folks rely on their attics as a space for a home office. The challenge is that most attics have a low slanted ceiling, which can make the space feel cramped. We suggest trying to paint the lower have of the wall a slightly darker color than the slanted ceiling. This will help divide the vertical wall surface from the low ceiling, making the room seem taller.
When having a neutral color scheme, it’s important to add various materials and textures to add a sense of dimensionality to your home office. The natural wooden top of the desk adds an organic texture that complements the soft leather of the ottoman. Black metal accents emphasize the industrial nature of the space.
Wrought iron, wood tones, steel, dark tones are all hallmarks of the industrial aesthetic. Trying to make those elements neutral and inviting can be difficult.
