Picture of Industrial Beams for Kitchen Interior
20130722_192806.jpg

This is a short how-to on the industrial beams that we made for our kitchen.

We were inspired by the industrial-style lamp posts that we sometimes see on the streets and so we decided to replicate it for the interior as a decor.

For this build you will need:

  • L-bars of appropriate length to fit the width of the room, 4 L-bars per beam
  • Flat bars (steel strips) - plenty to be able to cut many of the small parallelograms
  • Angle grinder
  • Stick welder

Materials are very few and cost is low. I think it is the time that would be the biggest investment for this project given the amount of welding that goes into it.

Step 1: Sketch Your Idea

It is always good to at least make a sketch of the idea. It helps to visualize and understand which parts will be needed for the build.

This is a really cool idea if you can get your hands on such items. I don't think that there would just be such poles and industrial materials just lying around for you to commandeer for use in your house decorations! Haha!

Hi,
Thanks. Depending on where you live, high chances are that these things are available in your hardware store. I get my material from there.

That looks awesome! I love how it all got together and how it looks like those mobile reception towers! It really lends a nice industrial look to the room and it's definitely unique!
