Industrial Farmhouse Bedroom Ideas
A farmhouse aesthetic doesn't have to be quaint, it can take on a sleek, industrial vibe. Check out our top industrial farmhouse bedroom ideas and inspiration.
In a farmhouse interior you are likely to find natural materials such as exposed brick or stone, wooden flooring and timber framework. Original industrial environments are characterised by concrete, exposed steel beams and ducting, metal lighting and exposed copper or galvanised electrical conduit.
Industrial style interiors tend to be dark, or have dark elements throughout. This could be in the form of dark walls, soft furnishings or through the use of fixtures & fittings such as black lighting, door handles or black metal furniture frames.
Lighting is one of the most important elements in any room. To achieve the industrial farmhouse look and feel choose industrial style lighting.
Original industrial lighting is generally made out of metal and feature cages or vitreous enamelled shades. These features are used to maintain the safety and life span of the products and mean the light fixtures are incredibly hard wearing and robust.
Reproduction industrial style lighting is all over the place and often made from plastic, however they are a cheap alternative. But if you are looking for authentic fixtures and fittings that will last a lifetime, choose original vintage industrial lights which add much more character plus will have longevity due to the way they were originally designed and manufactured.
Cantilever lighting is commonly found in industrial or workshop settings as task lighting. When used in the home not only do they add industrial chic but can also be very practical allowing you to move illumination around. Often cantilever lighting can be pulled out and pushed back to the wall again which makes them suitable for bedside lighting or as vanity table lighting.

Add a colour pop with industrial lighting. These lamps can be painted any colour to suit your interior. The lamp shade is on a ball & socket joint so the shade can be moved for directional lighting which is perfect for bedside wall lighting.
Hang large industrial style lighting on your ceiling to create the perfect feature in your farmhouse style bedroom, like the bright bedroom below which is a lovely combination of exposed brick, wooden furniture and metal fixtures alongside soft furnishings to create a simple industrial farmhouse style bedroom.
Using metal is a key feature in creating an industrial style bedroom interior.
The beauty of choosing to use metal is the range of finishes and colours available. There is something to compliment all interior styles.
Warmer metals such as brass, bronze and copper have become more popular over the last few years due to changes in interior colour trends.
However if you prefer silver / white tones then aluminium, stainless steel or chrome industrial style fixtures and fittings look fantastic, especially when using reclaimed and original fixtures which add much more character than new or reproduction fixtures. In the bedroom ensuite bathroom below the use of reclaimed aluminium cage lighting adds character to this space. See Loomlight's full collection of vintage industrial light fixtures
