INDUSTRIAL CHIC BATHROOM

SHARE

There was an era where everything was clean, clinical and absolutely straight and shiny.

No décor, just white or black. Don’t get me wrong…this style still looks beautiful to my eyes, but now things are changed.

If you are open minded person who is not afraid to experiment new stuff, industrial chic design is the style for you. Especially in your bathroom. And everything start with the right surface.

Could be concrete, bricks or weathering steel. The importance is to use rough materials.

And you can do it by yourself, with the right paint or choosing the best covering. Let’s get started!

CONCRETE WATERPROOF PAINT

Viero Paint

Literally fall in love with them. I think some of their collections are just sensational. And it’s just paint and plaster.You need a lot of decorative skills and patience to achieve a good result, but it’s not impossible. Hydro is what I was looking for. It’s a slaked, translucent lime based Marmorino plaster, formulated with special additives that make the surface highly water-repellent. Can’t wait to use it in my shower area!

HANDMADE CEMENT TILES

Do you remember when we talked about Bert’s boxes? These boxes have a sensational, industrial look, thanks to their coverings. Bert and May are the specialist of handmade and reclaimed cement tiles and the effect is absolutely fabulous.

With their products you can easily replicate a vintage and industrial look.

METRO TILES

Pretty popular in France during the 18th century you can still see these tiles in the Paris’s metropolitan stops as Porte de Versailles.  Around the 18th century the city of Paris was building its new transport system, Le Metro’. La faïencerie de Choisy-le-Roi started developing the now famous earthenware tiles covered in white pottery glaze- to reflect the dim artificial lighting as much as possible.

Today this kind of tile is perfect if you would like to replicate a retro’, vintage style in a contemporary living.

OR THE ENAMEL BUCKET SINK 

This ‘Bucket Sink’ is a very traditional product in Germany. Although originally designed for use in garages and workshops, we have used it to great effect in bathrooms and kitchens.

MIRRORS  

As the one you can see in the movie “The Dreamers”. I always dreamed to have one in my bathroom. And finally, during the Maison and Object 2015, I’ve found where to buy it: affari.nu and Chehoma. At an affordable price – around 200 euro.

But another alternative could be to use a antique frame as a mirror.

LIGHTS

Obviously, we can’t forget to talk about lights.

We are mad about Lambert&Fils and their lights.
