Industrial Modern Home Style

The Industrial Modern Home

Our most current Modern is similar to the early Industrial style but its use of varied materials to add texture elevates it to its own category. By using a variety of elements you might find in a factory, such as corrugated metal, concrete and exposed wood, this look has become increasingly popular in urban settings.

Essential Style Elements

Industrial Modern homes feature flat roofs with simple forms arranged asymmetrically. Multiple window units are often arranged in rectangular or irregular groupings that benefit interior functions or features.

Quintessential Windows

Window groupings in the Industrial Modern style range from simple rectangles to more complex shapes that reflect either interior function or interior features such as a fireplace. Additional shapes such as trapezoidal or triangular are also used, particularly when the home has a pitched roof. Windows are usually mulled directly with no additional spacers.

Industrial Modern Doors

Quintessential Doors

Main entrance doors in Industrial Modern style homes are frequently single doors. While standard proportions can be found, taller doors are more common. Auxiliary doors are used at utility entrances and locations such as terraces and patios. Auxiliary doors that are not on a prominent face of the house are usually single doors of a standard size, whereas doors leading to a terrace or patio would commonly be multiple doors in one unit.

Colors & Finishes

Painted exterior finishes are most common in the Industrial Modern style. The color range is quite varied and includes dark colors. For interiors, maple with a clear coat finish is customary. However, other wood species and stains, or painted wood, may also be used.

Hardware Styles

Industrial Modern style window hardware is simple with an emphasis on function. Straightforward hardware that lacks flourishes, or even industrial-looking hardware, would be at home in this style.

Door hardware is treated much the same as window hardware. Minimal hardware is appropriate, although straightforward pieces that are slightly more substantial may also be used.
