Designing with exposed building elements can be fun! Brick walls, wooden beams, and dark pipes are all part of the Industrial look that make this design style a favorite. These structural details are all key elements to giving your space urban chic vibes. Using a white subway tile like Tongue in Chic’s - You Don’t Snow Me is a great backdrop to a mix of cabinets and open shelving. It also complements nicely with a wall of exposed brick. The Totally in Zinc pulls inspiration form metal pipes and is a thrilling accent for a counter face or coffee/wet bar backsplash. Creating a flowing design will bring a sense of cohesiveness to your open floor plan. Don’t be afraid to try something different! Using the Carbone porcelain plank in a herringbone would help define a bar, pantry, or bathroom floor from the traditional cement or wood floors in the common areas of the loft. Selecting a stone like Vanity’s - White Carrara 6x12 for shower walls keeps the bathroom space light and open. The honed finished creates a sense of rawness and carries the “unfinished" look into the additional space. Round out the design with rustic wood pieces, Edison light bulbs, and neutral colors to give your loft the perfect mix of exposed building elements and urban vibes.
