Trends to look out for in 2020 – The Industrial Look

Industrial on Trend Look

Industrial-style interiors is a design choice that has stood the test of time. In 2020 the trend looks to continue, making it a fashionable option for those creating interiors with a sense of permanence whilst keeping bang on trend. In the last two decades, industrial-style interior design has significantly increased in popularity, and this demand is showing no signs of slowing anytime soon.

A key component of the industrial design look is metal, particularly when raw like a galvanised finish and incorporated into ‘edgy’ furniture and designs that make a real statement. Honest, metal furniture is a great way to bring an element of the industrial feel into any interior space. If you’re looking for a statement piece of vintage industrial look furniture second-hand shops and salvage yards are good places to look. However, if you don’t fancy scouring around, here at Fitted we have an extensive range of metal benches, tables, chairs, clothing rails that can help you to achieve the look. 

“Metals are going to be all over the place in 2020. We’re talking silver, gold, tin, and copper. Tin panels are predicted to be a popular backsplash option for kitchens. The mixed metal decor trend will also be pretty popular. Be careful not to mix more than three metals in one space, or your decor could become way too busy and overwhelming for one room. The right interior design firm can help you find balance.”


If you’re looking to add immediate industrial impact then consider adding furniture or accessories with black as the prominent colour. Whether a large cabinet, or something smaller like a light fitting or wall hanging, a touch of black will immediately complement the overall design, whilst in keeping with the theme of raw and industrial materials.

With the industrial look keep things simple, less is more as they say, so remove unwanted clutter and keep the overall design minimal and fresh. The industrial style requires a stripped-down arrangement; the simpler, the better. On the whole floors and walls should remain clear in respect to the industrial design theme. Over the years, exposed brickwork has been a constant feature in creating the industrial look, it might not be for everyone, especially in the home but it will certainly add a focal point to the interior space.

Crittall style windows, doors and partitions continue to be a popular solution for Interior designers and alike. Whether commercial office developments, partitioning for luxury apartment blocks or shower screens in hotel developments. The graphic steel frames provide a cool, contemporary feel and pay homage to the industrial style. Whether in the home as beautiful doors onto a garden, as a living room divider or stunning windows, this specialist metal framed glazing is continuing to grow in popularity across industry sectors.
