The 'Cool Industrial' Trend for a Minimalist Bedroom

The trend for industrial style interiors has been around for some time now. Easily recognisable by the heavy use of exposed bricks, untreated wood, metal, and factory lighting. It suits most types of properties from converted warehouses, country cottages, refurbished barns and even contemporary apartments. But what if you like that look, but it's just a little bit too rough and rustic for you? Well, we have a solution....

The House of British Ceramic Tile have developed the Paragon Collection using 3D HD technology to imitate the look of exposed bricks. And by choosing the matt grey version you can get the effect of a brick wall but with a much cooler colour palette.
