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.
Want your bedroom to look a bit quirky? Utilising an awkward space to full effect, three layered concrete panels provide the perfect canvas for a sliced-orange moon, running copper dog and metal cage accessories. Bedding completes the look by reinforcing artistic white and orange hues.
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.
Our next brick bedroom keeps it simple. Filled with sunlight from factory windows beside, a futon bed and greyscale sketch mark the space for sleeping. A knitted ottoman, floor lamps and leaning print make the most of the style, while a leather chair to the side matches brick tones.
Iron or metal piping makes the most of brick. Here, two plumbing lines draw a frame around the bed, while two hanging metal lamps support. Factory windows mirror their lines beneath a metal extractor fan. An antique headboard attracts attention while rugs, leaning prints and a bicycle fill the space.
Monochrome photographs and prints can easily fill a space. This low, wide room dots their forms, large and small, across a series of industrial, British flag-backed platforms. Subtle grey drapes over the bed, floor and chairs, while a metal staircase shows the way out.
Looking for something whiter and brighter? This bedroom mixes white and grey in a plethora of exposed brick walls, LED lights, wooden floors and wall features. Different-level platforms, a painted metal staircase and indoor tree make a scene, while leather adds rock chic in a bed frame and chair.
Make a wooden wall panel the feature instead. Hovering white bauble lights people this funky bedroom, which pops with a sunshine crate table and sky-blue rug. Taupe curtains, an LED-lit wardrobe and concrete walls and floors keep it classy.
Sometimes it’s the treatment, not the material, which acts as the centrepiece. This bedroom feels industrial yet chic, as perforated windows create circles of light over a wooden floor and matching headboard. Straight-from-the-factory concrete tiles, aptly-shaped side tables and TV crew lighting complete the look.
Mix art deco and industrial interiors. Wooden floors and ceilings frame concrete tiles in this rectangular bedroom, with each piece of furniture assuming the shape. As a wooden artwork hangs over two rectangle-forming amps, the living room table mirrors their form. A low bed, TV cabinet, bookcase and room divider follow the trend.
Black and white work wonderfully with grey brick walls. This modern industrial bedroom invites with portrait typography and architecture, shifting the colours from black and white, to black and blue and back again. White sheets sit on black leather amidst black and wood accessories. Dark and light colours in a fluffy rug, iron piping and light grey floor tie it all together.
Join your ceiling and wall for a bedroom tres chic. Pendant baubles illuminate a grey brick wall, low bed and nifty ottoman as a rug matches the floor. A velvet wingback offers alternate views of an abstract photo and the city beyond.
Let your concrete wall do the talking. This attic-roofed space builds portrait tiles into an art piece. Mahogany and teal cushions, matching copper lamps and mint bedside tables show personality in colour.
Texturing is the real hero of this industrial bedroom. Subtle nails – yes, builder’s nails – create an artwork atop the bed, which matches its texture to a pucked woollen cover. Wood lines the ceiling, bedside table, floors and shelf, while a black and yellow abstract offers difference.
Love cats and the industrial look? Reverse traditions and elevate a cat above your plank-high bed. Rustic skirting keeps it natural on an unpolished floor; a Scandinavian lamp, abstract cat print and grey fabric make it modern.
Hipsters can’t go past this quirky bedroom look. A white brick wall holds a tiled artwork, caged light, and flying mint bicycle complete with headlamp. Grey floors introduce elegance, as a similarly-coloured bed frame is draped with patterns and black. A standing metal lamp and mint chair provide finishing touches.
Want the industrial look with classic elements? This many-windowed bedroom makes the most of its space by letting light peek through wooden Venetians. The industrial reigns in wood and steel rafters, a telescope and concrete walls. The modern takes over in shiny floors, Scandinavian furniture and modern office accessories.
Want your bedroom to remain open? Try the concrete arch in this bedroom space – in place of a door. Lining the walls and ceiling, it provides a base palette for a greyscale print, tartan armchair, wooden cube bed and dusky pink curtains.
Make industrial windows look fresh and clean. This bedroom lets in light as shades of blue patch the rug, chair and bedding. White block furniture creates room for thought; a greyscale painting and antique pendant a hint of luxury.
Sleeping in an attic? Make the most of your roof with an exposed brick wall and juxtaposed white walls. Thick black joinery suns the bed and floor, while simple white furniture and a host of prints tie it all in.
Open up your bedroom with a glass wardrobe. Wood and steel create the structure within; concrete and wood the walls on the outer. A white futon blends in with the floor as pops of monochrome art, idea bulbs, greenery and teal make the room come alive.
Want your industrial bedroom to have a vintage feel? Paint your concrete in charcoal and French windows in white, while you pepper your walls with black and white photography. Rustic wooden assets add to an antique suitcase, while a wide-set chair and delicate lighting adds romance.
Create a log cabin inside your bedroom. A wooden feature wall and exposed brick create a room cosy, warm, and held high by steel rafters. Typography and cushions bring it into the 21st Century, while an old leather suitcase and zigzagging lamps hold on to memories. Steel Venetian blinds and a steampunk-style chandelier ensure the industrial isn’t lost.
Keep your bedroom’s factory look. Three concrete planes hold blocks of wood and suede, as corrugated iron lines the ceiling. Old wooden rafters play with industrial metal fans, as squares in the rug mimic the factory boxes of the past.
Glass is the perfect segue between industrial and modern. Two idea bulbs mark the entrance to a sleeping and eating space, provided for by a bench in glass. Rugged concrete rafters match the floor, while LEDs illuminate the cavity behind. As a wide window lets the city in, a gold tree coat rack and rattan light stretch out to the sun.
Dare to use rusted metal as the base for your bedroom. This unique separating wall and floor are the perfect canvas for a wheeled trolley bed. Slatted Venetian partitions play alongside sprigs of poppies and marigolds, an extractor fan pipe and motley cushions.
Love Jules Verne’s under the sea classic? Sleep in the theme day and night, as nautical overtones mix with this industrial sleeping space.

Looking for something simpler? This bed on a hanging crate hovers over concrete and between industrial windows, as wooden tiles mimic its shape. Extending over to form an inbuilt shelf, concrete holds books, ornaments and a few prints telling us more.
Industrial bedrooms hold green walls, too. Caging masks an exterior brick wall, while grating skims over the entrance of this unique bedroom. A photographic lamp shines towards panels of green, as wood forms a low-height floor bed under bold artwork. A spider chandelier and metal cabinet lurk to the side.
Make a statement with your bed board. This roughshod wooden frame mixes industrial and beach themes beneath concrete walls. Simple white and wooden accessories keep the focus on the bed, a feature masted by a monochrome triptych.
Build a treehouse in your room. This industrial bedroom sleeps guests under the British flag and gets work done above it. High concrete ceilings with grated panels keep it fun, as unpolished wood holds the bed and LEDs beneath. A potted tree and colourful artwork keep the room full of colour.
Use top-to-toe concrete to frame your space. Elevated on rustic wood, this bedroom uses black and white to decorate between, with a Mondrian-esque gridded artwork, thick steel joinery, wall-hung tables and black bedding. A simple white bathtub offers retreat.
Don’t live in an abandoned factory? Create an industrial bedroom with a concrete feature wall. Keep your walls in simple eggshell, your furniture steel-legged and your bedding coloured in grey and white. A studio light panel, hover lamp and unpolished floor won’t go astray.
Confine the industrial look to your bedroom. Opening to a full concrete wall, grey tones in an abstract artwork, bedding and side tables complement those in the more modern living room. Metal chairs and lamps blend the two upon a shared wooden floor.
Be minimalist and industrial at the same time. A futon platform holds simple white bedding, while a gap in the concrete lets LEDs shine. Low-set black furniture and an opaque partition wall continue the black and white theme, a stylish asset in a concrete room.
