For several years, interior designers have been inspired by the industrial look, incorporating exposed plumbing, beams, and electrical conduit as part of an open concept. From this trend, many plumbing and electrical products have been adapted in the following ways.

Conduit. For DIYers who have unusually sized or oddly placed windows, creating their own rods can save money over purchasing custom solutions. One couple, featured at apartmenttherapy.com, used conduit pipe for their corner windows and created a unique look. See how they did it here.

Steel Pipes. To create the ultimate industrial look, DIYers are building shelving using steel pipes and fittings. For over 50 project ideas for shelving made from pipes, click here.

Garden Water Taps. Garden water taps are being repurposed as wall art, hooks and drawer pulls, but the cleverest use is as a towel holder like this one sold by Mud Pie. View Product Here >>
