Kitchen appliances, cookers & hobs - The industrial kitchen look is all about having the best equipment and utensils possible – replicating the items you’d find in a professional catering kitchen. Black and chrome options both look great in this style. A large American style fridge freezer is an impressive addition and will hold all of your groceries easily. Range cookers allow you to cook several things at once, and include gas hobs with multiple rings to sauté, boil and steam your food. And a large dishwasher will help keep your surfaces clear while you’re cooking up a storm.
Kitchen lighting - Harking back to the overhead lighting of factories and warehouses, pendant lighting is particularly well suited to an industrial style kitchen. We love ones in copper, such as this bronze-effect dome light and this industrial-style copper light with eye-catching rivets and chains. If you’re looking for something simpler, this shiny Manison dome light is a great option. Or why not explore our Sylcone range of retro lights? Available in black, nickel, brass and copper finishes, they’ll look great in an industrial-inspired space. Plus they come with an oversized, hand-blown bulb that will finish off your lighting look perfectly.
The worktop may also include a large built-in hardwood chopping board, with a pull-out waste-disposal drawer beneath into which to scoop vegetable peelings, and perhaps a slab of cool, smooth marble as well, traditionally the best surface for rolling pastry. Otherwise a freestanding central work station with all-round access may include both cooking rings and a sink for washing fruit and vegetables. The height of all these worktops needs to be carefully calculated because at the wrong height they will make preparing and cooking food unnecessarily tiring.
You may even want to run the fan a bit after your staff has finished for the day in order to clear up any residual pollutants that may remain in the air. If you are currently looking at the different options of industrial extractor fans you have available, you will have to decide whether you would like a model that uses ducts or one that uses filters. The former choice is the most efficient as it can take the polluted air directly out of your building and replace it with clean air.
