Living in an apartment could be dreary, so to speak. Pressing yourself into a tight room, sharing space with your belongings and of course, family members. Having this situation could initially give you stress and could be a potential source of disaster. Not literally causing catastrophe but could arise with minor plights in your house like hitting on furniture, bumping on knee-high boxes and slipping into clutters and the like.
Add up the not so pleasing set up and decoration of your interior that might perhaps be rooted in entire misfortunes. This may be slowly driving you nuts and would probably lead you to throwing it all out. However, before this beats you up, know that there are a lot of solutions for this common problem.
One of the fruits of their creativity is the Open Concept Contemporary Industrial Apartment. This project is entirely a mind teasers design that would probably make you ask how they were able to come up with such a work of art.
With respect to their crafts, we will be featuring one of their projects here.
But prior to that, let us first make ourselves familiar with this Open Concept Contemporary Industrial Apartment.
Open-concept is also known as open plan, which means, having a few or no internal walls or partitions within the interior’s spaces like living room, dining area and kitchen.
While a Contemporary Industrial apartment is decorating a space beyond concealing rawness and roughness of the materials exposing them in a warm updated touch. This is common with having exposed beams, pipelines and ducts, which highlights the industrial most on its ceiling. Shades of grey and edgy spots are the favorites for industrial make-overs too.
Industrial design is somehow minimalist and perhaps suits best with contemporary that would closely deal or break with what the concept is all about. And this has been the challenge the designers have brawled, which however resulted to brilliancy like the one we have here.
Check the whole project below and be inspired.
Design by egue & seta.
The geometrical tiling in shades of dark and light blue combing on the mini bar area connecting on the dining area’s wood palette tiling are chic and stylish. While the rugged brick wall and protruding ceiling are quite industrial.
The open concept of this design is quite stunning in its linking dining area and mini bar/kitchen. The shades of grey on the flooring add to the industrial look.
Grey colored sofa bed with a few throw pillows in shades of dark and light blue blends well on the grey toned tiling. While the green shade mat and chair on the side give it a cool contrast.
An oval wooden table top comfortably seats four. On the other side behind it is the mini kitchen counter with hexagon tile patterns on the floor.
Beams on the ceiling are painted in white to match up with the wall paint while the color itself is a bright add up to the areas lighting. Grey tone flooring and sofa give it the cool touch of industrial design.
You can see that a few raw details on the ceiling are still exposed although it was painted in white and looks pretty much contemporary industrial, while the edgy bricks remain dusted and rugged.
Cool wall patterns behind the dish racks are quite artsy while the simple and plain cabinet are at their most functional style, keeping all the clutter hidden.
Open or uncovered electrical plug on the kitchen counter may look odd for some but for an industrial contemporary design, it gives the cut.
Seeing these plugs or sockets being exposed makes it more accessible than crouching down under the counter.
Light oak or maple wood cabinets and table with granite kitchen counter looks fabulous on its soft and simple design.
A pair of ceiling bulbs symmetrically hanging and giving enough lighting on the dining table. The potted succulents are the cutest green center pieces giving a little touch of nature to the place.
This is the mini kitchen with a granite counter top for food preparation, working sink and faucet for washing, a few shelves for display and functional symmetrical cabinets for storage. Beside the counter rest a pair of high rise chairs.
The artsy wall background behind the kitchen shelves are oozing with coolness. While the shelves work perfectly in displaying some of your plates, bowls and glass collections. A few teacup succulents and fruit trays can be displayed too, same with the empty glass containers and other decoration accents on the counter top.
This is the best shot for an open plan, where you can see each part of the apartment arranged in a very communicable manner. The dining area is close to the kitchen and living room right beside them. Then who says you need partitions to decorate them well.
Huge glass entrance and windows make it more light and brighter, allowing natural lighting to pass through them.
This kitchen may look small and compact yet the type of set up it has gives you leeway in preparing a meal.
You can slice and chop your fresh cooking ingredients right on the granite made counter top. You can cook as well on a flameless cooking range right on the granite top.

Geometrical styles on the floor are cool. The hexagon tile pattern and textured wood palette tiles cut on the edge to fit and blend them closely.
The bedrooms are located with an accessible bathroom. The painted ceiling still exposes the bare figure of the beams.
The neat and tidy bathroom looks even more spacious with the color shade choices and the sliding glass doors as well.
Geometrical shapes are still present in the grey flooring while on the walls rest white and light to dark blue toned tiles.
