Fires to suit your interior: Industrial

B&Q Graham and Brown Brick Wallpaper

This month we are focussing on embracing the industrial style and how you can incorporate a show stopping Opti-myst cassette to enhance this modern look.

The first place to start when trying to achieve an industrial style is the walls. If you have exposed brick in your home then this is the perfect starting point. If not, then turn to B&Q’s stunning range of brick wallpapers – these are surprisingly convincing and our featured paper is £14 a roll, making it surprisingly affordable too. This will immediately transform the space and bring a city vibe to your room or apartment. To enhance this further, consider wood or wood effect flooring to match the cool, modern feel to the look, which will be brought to life with new soft furnishings.

When you are considering the transformation to an industrial style, it is important to make sure the space still feels like home. Cream fur rugs and throws soften the room, as does incorporating a variety of wood tones. Introducing leafy green plants brings life to the space and breaks up the cool colour palette. And make sure to remember that this look focusses on the exposed - so declutter your space and only keep items that make you truly happy.  You can then showcase these on book shelves made from reclaimed wood and dark metal brackets, or even consider upcycling ladders to house your photos, plants and books.

To truly add some warmth to the newly industrial styled space, turn to our Opti-myst bespoke range of cassette fires. Available from select independent retailers, these free standing, show stopping fires offer you the cosy, homely vibe that a real fire does, whilst maintaining the modern, industrial feel. These Dimplex electric fires are completely safe, hassle free and don’t produce heat, relieving any worry about fumes and making them a perfect feature for loft apartments. Our cassettes 500 & 1000 can even be plumbed into the water supply, relieving any need for maintenance and you have the freedom to create your own casing to match your individual style and taste.

The industrial look is one full of character, whilst remaining modern and on trend, and our Opti-myst cassettes work to enhance the exposed feel, whilst bringing a feeling of warmth and tranquillity to any space - be it a city loft apartment, or a newly updated home.
