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.
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.
