There are plenty of ways to add some character to your walls. Opt for a statement clock - we love this old fashioned clock or consider some new wall art. Think black and white prints or typography. And why not display knives that a professional chef would envy with a magnetic knife block? Upcycling is a key part of this trend, especially if you want to add a truly unique accessory to your kitchen design. Try repurposing second-hand chairs, benches or stools with a lick of paint to give your kitchen a stamp of individuality.
The overall look of an industrial kitchen should be pure raw simplicity. Kitchen islands with siding of rustic old timbers can become interesting focal points as can a rustic reclaimed dining table. The appliances within a space are typically stainless steel and sleek, and when space permits it, they should be industrial sized. When selecting your kitchen countertops for your industrial kitchen, the prevalent trend is dark granite or neutral low gloss granite like Astoria granite.
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.
Complement your sink with a pull out or spring neck tap like the ones often on show in restaurant kitchens and the industrial look will be complete. Spring neck taps feature an extendable spout making it easier to tackle difficult cleaning tasks and look for ones with a spray head for rinsing fruit and vegetables easily. You may want to include a waste disposal unit underneath your sink. Having one will allow you to remove all food waste from your bins, grinding scraps into tiny pieces that are then rinsed away down the drain. It’s an ideal addition for a kitchen built to entertain and is constantly cooking.
