Create the Industrial Look in your Kitchen

How can we create an industrial look in our kitchens? What elements can we add to the design that work the raw and edgy feel? Expose materials such as brick, steel, copper and concrete to open up this style in the home’s working, most used room.

Discover below a few tips to create a space that you will love for many years and a design style that is becoming the most favoured.

The Kitchen Design

With an industrial design, dark colours are often used to create a simple yet sophisticated look. Layer up with different tones across the room using shades of black and grey that can be found within the appliances and fixtures and fittings. Contrast these colours with raw materials such as metal, brick and timber.

If opting for a dark kitchen they can often feel small, so try and add splashes of white or pale grey on the flooring or worktops to encourage light to reflect around the room.

Our kitchen design choices at The Handmade Kitchen Company range from Classic Shaker to the Traditional Shaker where you can add industrial features to create the look you are after. We have many other kitchen features that you can add too to bring the industrial theme to life.

The Worktops

Materials that are derived from nature are key to creating an industrial look. There are many worktops to choose from that are a perfect option to bring a natural element to the surface and you can mix and match these too.

Introduce contrasting tones and textures, e.g a large island complete with a quartz worktop and the seating area finished with a solid oak top.

The Appliances

Want to keep it sleek? Or are you someone who wants to bare all? Integrate your dishwasher, hob, ovens, and wine cooler to create a sleek finish for a fuss-free aesthetic of an industrial design. Or hide some of the appliances behind cupboard doors and keep the spectacular-looking ones on show, e.g a big and bold Wolf range cooker.

The Accessories

The overall design for an industrial-style kitchen is fairly subtle, but why not spruce up the space by including a bold piece of statement art? A blank wall in your kitchen space is the perfect place to show off a framed picture or a large selection of wall art. If you want to add other quirky features, opt for open shelving where you can display utensils, pots and pans.

Are you looking to incorporate an industrial look into your handmade kitchen?
