There are three main materials that are characteristic of an industrial style kitchen - exposed brick, wood and metal. These materials work together in balance to create a style that exudes practicality and unpretentiousness. The movement initially begun as a work place environment as companies took over raw, industrial spaces, but that transitioned into a style for loft homes, and ultimately expanding into a design movement used in homes and luxury contemporary apartment spaces.
The flooring of an industrial space is typically a sleek cement or dark or painted hardwood. These floorings are inexpensive and durable, and even when scuffed or marked up, they still look good in an industrial space. Lighting should be limited to simple factory type lighting and elaborate pendant lighting and chandeliers contrast with the overall feel. Yes, the industrial look is such a departure from traditional design, but it is still a look that many people love. It has a "simple life" type of feel, a carefree and easy breezy feel while still being raw and edgy. Your Kitchen will have a lot of character with this style.
