Kitchen cabinets & storage - Make your kitchen as efficient and functional as a professional kitchen with well thought out cabinets and storage. That way, all your stuff is close to hand. Dark, richly coloured units are ideal for an industrial style kitchen. The Raffello high gloss in anthracite (pictured) looks striking with bright metal appliances, the sleek, glossy cabinets making a real design statement. The Carisbrooke taupe is a little more subtle than the Raffello and when combined with the right worktop and accessories, also perfectly captures the industrial trend.
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 style works incredibly well in a kitchen and draws from pure textures and materials like exposed beams, natural wood, exposed brick, and neutral solid countertops. An Industrial style kitchen is crisp and raw. It lacks the characteristic refinement of traditional kitchens, and instead draws from an industrial pureness by exposing wastepipes, gas lines, and electrical wires to add to the design of the room.
You have to be able to encompass all aspects of the industrial kitchen supplies. What kind of counters are you looking for? Do you like marble? What kind of overall design are you going for? Have you already picked out your tabletop designs and how big would you like them to be? Are you going to place booths in the establishment? Seating is extremely important in any business because you want to make sure you can accommodate all of your guests. Make sure that you have a lot of variety in your selections. I myself have never thought of using industrial kitchen supplies but I do admire the way that some people use them to decorate their own homes. By browsing the internet I have also found some styles that I would like to borrow ideas.
