You know how your favourite leather jacket can dress up any outfit? Rugged building materials add that same rocker chic to interiors! We can’t pinpoint when the industrial trend started, but the influx of client interest denotes that this trend is here to stay. When bricks, concrete, metal and wood converge, they add effortlessness and edginess to any interior.

Integrating these materials can be problematic due to weight restrictions and planning permissions. Bearing that in mind, we have compiled a list of which elements are yay and which are nay, and a few stylish workarounds that’ll get you the look, without the weight!

“We chose Landmark Lofts to build our loft extension after considering several other companies. We are so happy with how much space we now have. We have two extra spacious rooms and a second bathroom. Sebastian, the site manager and his team were committed and came on time every morning and completed the loft project in 8 weeks. They kept the place clean after each day’s work. Sebastian was also very prompt and helpful when we had questions and he kept us informed as the team progressed through each stage of the build. We are very happy with the end result and would highly recommend Landmark Lofts to our friends.” Ash, KT2 Read the rest of this blog post

The room’s primary purpose is to be an office for my husband who runs his business from home. With 2 toddlers at home with our Nanny during the day, the house can get very noisy and we wanted to create a quiet, comfortable work space. The secondary use is as a guest room.
