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.
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.
Another popular option for an industrial style kitchen is tiles. Choose white tiles for a clean look that will lighten your room and use a dark grout to make your choice of tile really stand out. Or maybe a stainless steel effect tile (pictured) to keep with the professional tone of the style. We love these on-trend black subway style tiles which will add some gloss to your space. Add some further interest by playing around with the pattern in which you lay your tiles. Consider herringbone, crosshatch or diagonal layouts to create a slightly different look.
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.
