Industrial farmhouse decor is absolutely beautiful when done correctly. However, often times industrial decor can feel hard and cold making it a not so great choice for your home. That is until now. In this post you will see how you can make industrial decor feel cozy.
When Rob and I were looking at decor options for our home I loved the cozy clean look of a rustic beach decor. Meanwhile, Rob liked a more warm look with lots of medium wood tones. As a compromise we settled on an industrial decor.
The problem still remained that industrial decor didn’t have a cozy feel to it. So I started looking for ways to add touches of warmth to the decor.
Part of having a beautiful home is making sure it’s free from clutter. Get your FREE decluttering checklist right in your inbox.
Industrial Home Decor
One way to make an industrial decor feel cozy is to add plenty of greenery. Use industrial style planters to keep with your
industrial style. These concrete square planters or these concrete geometric planters are perfect for industrial decor.
Adding plants to an industrial decor feels cozy because you are bringing the outdoors in. By using industrial styled pots you are keeping with the decor style while adding a bright pop of color.
I recommend putting them on floating shelves or pipe shelves in an area that gets plenty of natural light. Adding 3 or 5 potted plants to an industrial room will brighten what can oftentimes be a dark decor.

Add Warm Colors
Add Soft Textures
Use throws, pillows, and soft rugs to make an industrial decor feel cozy. Soft light neutral or warm toned throws will immediately make your room feel more comfortable.
Depending on the color palette of the room you may also be able to add a white fuzzy throw rug to soften the harsh edges of industrial decor.
Add A Gallery Wall
A beautiful gallery wall can instantly add comfort to your decor. Use untreated or rustic wood frames in medium tones or metal frames.
Mix pictures of family with a gear clock or a piece of modern art. Use different sizes and shapes to complete the gallery wall and make the industrial decor feel cozy.

Mirrors will make the living space feel larger putting a plant or candles in front of the mirror will double the amount expanding the comfortable feeling in your living space.
Try also adding a mirror across from shelves of plants. If the mirror is framed in iron or wood the industrial feel will continue but the reflection of the plants on the opposite side will continue the cozy feel of the industrial decor.
Making an industrial decor feel cozy is absolutely possible. However, be careful in how many small touches you add. Add too much and you will lose the industrial decor and end up with a cluster.
Pick 1 or 2 of these touches to add to each living space. In an office try soft textures and plants. In a living room a gallery wall and warm touches of color. In a kitchen or dining room add plants only. In hallways or bedrooms add mirrors or a gallery wall.
