True to its name, this interior style consist of industrial materials like exposed ceilings, concrete, brick, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The large amount of natural lighting illuminates the room and balances out darker elements, like charcoal walls.
However, unless you’re doing a full renovation, your windows are probably average sized. Because of the lack of natural (and perhaps artificial) lighting, this reduces some industrial style choices, like black kitchen cabinets or dark grey concrete flooring. What’s a homeowner to do? Let us introduce you to mini blinds, or aluminum blinds.
Mini blinds are more modern and sophisticated than ever, with colors from popular neutrals to trendy metallics. They come with big benefits, like increased light control and safety. Dust, dent and scratch resistant, their functional design is perfect for everyday use. Available in 1″ and 2″ slats, these moisture-resistant minis can be used in any room, even bathrooms and kitchens.
All of our mini blinds are made from original aluminum instead of vinyl. This makes them stronger and more durable than traditional metal and recycled aluminum window blinds. Mixing two or three metals is normal with industrial decor. Consider these blinds as more of a subtle accent metal since aluminum likely isn’t featured in your hardware or light fixtures. We recommend ordering samples to see if you want to complement or contrast the main metal finish in the room.
“They fit perfectly, were super easy to install and they look gorgeous. The 2″ blinds give the whole room a completely different look.”

Industrial decor is also recognized with its defined angles throughout a space. You can accomplish this with mini blinds and opt for more curved furnitures to soften the room. Or if you have straight furniture or that black accent wall, you can soften the room with colored mini blinds like the 1″ Luxe Modern Cordless Aluminum Blinds in Curious Blue or Pale Dogwood. You get an elevated look with its color coordination from the headrail to bottom rail.
