The best industrial style colours are typically black with various shades of contemporary grey and brown. These colours are said to be popular because the tones are similar to the natural or industrial materials used, for example metals, wood, brick or concrete. For steel-look interior doors and glazing, black remains the go-to colour, but it works just as well in grey, white or other more muted shades.
The advantage of using muted colours is creating a great backdrop and setting a neutral scene for your chosen furniture, fabrics and accessories. These colours are also said to create a balance to the industrial look adding the touch of softness and calm, essential in living spaces, bathrooms and bedrooms.
