Handcrafted concrete basins
Whether a modern family home or chic studio apartment, customers can create the much-loved industrial look in the bathroom or kitchen with a concrete basin from The Poured Project. Handcrafted in the UK, they come in a wide variety of textures, colours and finishes, transforming a bathroom into a sanctuary of rest and relaxation.
The Aurora radiator (left) is a piece of industrial art in itself, while the Isabella Radiator (right) is a modern radiator finished in black nickel. It’s glossy look suits modern bathrooms and the on-trend black is fit for any industrial scheme.
According to Keith Alcock, senior furniture designer at Roper Rhodes, achieving the industrial look is all about balance: “For many – the full industrial look of exposed services and frameworks is simply too much of a leap. We developed our new Frame collection to give people elements of this aesthetic whilst maintaining a more recognisable furniture appearance.”
Featuring matte or glass fronted paneling encased in a black aluminium frame, this slim-profile yet impactful unit is the perfect centre piece for a minimal bathroom.
Black switch plates
Light switch plates, handles, and doorknobs- formally the mundane elements of your room design, have come leaps and bounds in the last five years. Switch plates and other electrical hardware are now available in new contemporary designs and finishes, many with an of-the-moment industrial twist. This toggle switch by Buster & Punch is one part industrial, one part luxury, with diamond-cut detailing and a sleek matte black finish.
Lucy Shore, Creative Designer at window styling experts, Swish, comments:“It is important not to forget your window décor when pulling together a strong, industrial theme. Opting for a metallic blind, such as the Cordless Aluminium Venetian blind from Swish, will not only prove easy to clean and maintain in a kitchen area, but will also echo the metal finishes that are key to making this trend work.
To make a statement, pick out colours from your flooring, worktops or shelving for a style that coordinates across the room. Here, we’ve used Brushed Bronze to mirror the deeper shades in the flooring and compliment the worktops for a seamless look that really pulls together an Industrial style.”

The new generation of timeless design and clean, architectural lines of the Crittall-inspired metal-framed windows seems here to stay.
