From exposed bricks to black metal finishes and concrete floors, the industrial style evokes the austere functionality of a factory in a residential environment. Combine these elements with the homey and comfortable nature of the farmhouse, and you get a space that is unique in its juxtaposition. Neither farmhouse nor industrial decoration uses many bright colors; both prefer a neutral palette with just a few touches of subtle color. But you'll still have to choose between a bright and bright farmhouse color scheme or a dark and grumpy industrial one.
If you still love the modern farmhouse style, but are ready to change things up a bit, let us introduce you to the industrial farm. The design of an industrial farm combines the rustic and popular aesthetic of a farmhouse with a strong, masculine industrial look. Some spaces may seem more industrial than farmhouse due to the excessive use of metal, while others may seem more farmhouse than industrial because wood shapes the backdrop. While modern country houses include many white, shiny stainless steel surfaces, industrial farms feature more burnished finishes, darker mixed metals, and pieces of wood with vivid edges (a style in which the edges are not straight, but show the shape that the tree would naturally take).
The finishes you choose and the incorporation of rustic elements are the two big differences between the decoration of a modern farmhouse and an industrial farm, says Drew Henry, founder of Design Dudes.
