Industrial venues are versatile spaces that lend themselves to all sorts of events. Blank canvas spaces give you a lot of creative control, which means sourcing an industrial venue for your event is all about finding the perfect shell to work your magic on.
Utilitarian surfaces, stripped-back architecture and salvaged objects lend themselves to a modern aesthetic. Keep your venue bare or get creative with florals, found objects or modern art installations to totally transform the space. Don’t be afraid to take a risk when it comes to styling an industrial venue – showing off your personality and making the space your own is what’s going to make your event a standout. And remember that industrial-style spaces are usually expansive, so when decorating choose larger pieces for a big impact.
The Demand for Industrial Chic
Pared back to the essentials with strong clean lines and no hint of excess, industrial spaces are big, bold, comfortable in their own skin and all the more chic for it. There’s a stripped-back quality about this style that makes for a unique atmosphere and leaves a lasting impression on guests.
Whether you’re after a New York loft-style space or a cavernous exhibition space with vaulted ceilings, exposed pipes and cement floors, hosting an event in an industrial-style space is all about the wow factor. From crumbling former factories to the more polished and altogether less-warehousey warehouses, the possibilities are virtually endless.
Cost Less Than an Arm and a Leg
Industrial venues are relatively affordable event spaces. A rustic warehouse wedding is perfect for the budget savvy bride as industrial-style spaces can accommodate large guest counts that would usually call for a ballroom affair. In conclusion also lend themselves to DIY decorations and are perfect for self-catered events.
Industrial venues give you plenty of opportunity to make a space your own. Working with the bare tableau of a warehouse or former factory means you can really afford to get creative. Why not inject a little personality into your event by including an element of surprise? Serve a custom-named cocktail with personalised drink stirrers or set up a make-your-own BBQ slider station or an oyster bar with on-the-spot shucking.
You Can Go Your Own Way
Therefore I don’t know about you, but the growing popularity of industrial-style spaces has us very excited as event-goers. Finally this trend is all about pushing boundaries and daring to be a little different, which essentially translates to new and exciting ways of getting together. And what’s not to love about that?
