Your home interior design has a big impact on its value and its appeal. Why not create a style that Insider.com says is the next big trend, yet costs less than RM85K? We’re talking about industrial interior design.
What is industrial interior design?
Industrial interior design is an affordable way to add character and style to your home. The style refers to old factories that were converted into homes. The look involves having “raw” elements such as exposed piping or metal frames, unfinished brick walls, bare cement, or even recycled items, all while giving it a modern edge.
But, don’t be fooled into thinking that industrial house design is expensive. As the examples below demonstrate, it’s possible to get affordable industrial interior design in Malaysia at under RM85,000. All the examples below show how easy it is to create a clean, uncluttered home filled with lots of character. And apply it to practically any room in your home.
