Open shelves above worktops display more equipment, which may have been chosen for its stackability, while tall, deep shelves at lower levels are used as dry food cupboards for catering-size jars, cans and more weighty items. Many cooks prefer wide drawers so all the contents are visible from above, and can be easily removed and replaced. Razor-sharp knives - a cook's most precious equipment - are carefully protected in a knife rack or felt-lined drawer. One or even two dishwashers are essential rather than a luxury here, and they need to take a wide range of items: pots and pans as well as the standard dinner service.
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.
