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.
One way to achieve an open shelf look is to have base cabinets with open shelving and racks overhead instead of traditional overhead cabinets. We offer a wide range of internal storage solutions that work brilliantly inside these under-counter cabinets and drawers, helping you to make the most of the space you have. For something bang on-trend, choose copper shelf brackets and store items in matching copper wire baskets. And, if you’re looking for a project, consider creating your own shelving out of sawn timber and shelf brackets. Finish by staining or painting it a dark, rich colour.
While cooking and preparing food may be low on some people's list of priorities, for others these activities will completely dominate the kitchen design ideas: full-time cooks and caterers may only really feel at ease in a room that has been devoted to working with food rather than dining and entertaining. Professional kitchen design ideas are planned as workplaces, taking into account the exacting regulations of commercial hygiene standards. And it is worth noting that if you will be producing food for public consumption in your kitchen, the same constraints will apply, even in what you would consider your domestic environment.
Granite is built to last and is one of the most durable natural stones available on the market. With sealing 1 to 2 times a year, granite will last over a century. Even if you sell your home after installing an industrial kitchen, and the trend doesn’t appeal to the new homeowners, the space can be transformed without touching the granite, making it an incredible long-term investment for a home. It could be argued that your countertops will last longer than any investment that you make in your home.
