What living styles are there 

Do you still have doubts about which style you want to use in your home. Would you like to know which living styles there are and find out which one suits you, or would you like to know which style you have at home? Here we list 10 living styles that you can use in your interior. 

1. Industrial style of living 

The industrial living style is the most popular living style in the Netherlands. No less than 26% of Dutch households said in a survey by Veneta that they have an industrial style in their home. The industrial living style revolves around sturdy and natural materials, such as wood, concrete and lots of metal. The metal is often painted dark to give it a tougher impression.

Because this style is so popular, many variations are possible on this style. We have these variations here mentioned.
