One of my favorite things about the farmhouse style is that you can combine it with a lot of other styles and it still looks amazing. When we decided to finish our basement, I wanted to add some farmhouse industrial decor to give it more of an industrial feel.
What is Industrial Farmhouse Decor?
Industrial design is all about metal accents, concrete, exposed brick, wood, and exposed lighting. Think of an old factory or warehouse vibe. If you combine those elements with the softer side of the farmhouse style (like farmhouse pillows), you create a look that is not too harsh and more welcoming. This style is all about city meets country. Depending on how heavily you lean into one style or the other will determine the overall vibe of the space.
In order to incorporate the industrial style, here’s what I did to our basement:
- Added Brick Accent Wall
- Built A Bar Using Corrugated Metal & Black Pipes
- Added Industrial Decor
- Put Black Pipes on the Counter behind the couch
- Installed Shiplap Wall

One great way to incorporate farmhouse industrial decor is to change out your lighting. Industrial style lighting is all about black metals as well as exposed bulbs and cages.
Another great way to add farmhouse industrial decor is with bar stools. Not only do bar stools give you extra seating, but they can become a statement piece in your design as well. Most industrial-style barstools have a combination of metal and wood.
If you want to soften the design a bit, these metal bar stools come in a variety of different colors.
Farmhouse Industrial Shelving
One way I added industrial to my farmhouse decor was to add some shelving. There are so many great industrial shelving units out there to choose from. Mostly you will find them with wood shelves and some sort of black pipe. You can also make your own by purchasing the pipes and shelving separately.
Consider adding an industrial end table or desk. Again, most of these will be wood tops with metal legs. To soften the look, add accents like greenery, books, candles, etc to give it more of the farmhouse look.
You can also add this cool industrial shoe rack, or galvanized metal end tables. As you can see, there are a lot of different options. Just make sure you use softer accents to create a cozier, less harsh look. Remember, it’s all about mixing the city and country vibes together.
Remember, an industrial farmhouse is not just wood and metal. Once material I like to add is concrete. This can be in the form of a vase, a lamp, or even a picture frame. Anything to add an extra texture to the room to help pull the look together.
If you are trying to decorate on a budget, you can get cement spray paint and simply update items you already have in your home.
Industrial Farmhouse Wall Decor
Don’t forget about wall decor when you are looking to incorporate some industrial elements. It can be artwork, clocks, sconces etc.
Industrial Farmhouse Sink
If you are working on the kitchen, an industrial farmhouse sink is a way to make a huge impact! Stick with stainless steel in silver, black or copper to really top of the design look!
