1. Seek inspiration by looking to buildings with historic pasts
Before you can know what type of industrial details you like, look to buildings that share a historic past to reveal creative ideas you may not know about. Exposed brick walls, timber roof trusses and steel columns without drywall wraps are common in warehouse and manufacturing districts. Consider traveling to your local downtown city to see if there is a revitalization of older buildings. For many cities across the world the restoration of warehouses, barns, and manufacturing facilities into swanky condos and office buildings is on the rise.
