Antique designs are extremely popular and a rarity to find in a modern day home but I personally love the way that it complements certain homes. Have you seen the antique counter stools? They are just lovely. I enjoy industrial kitchen stools of any sort actually because they are unique and design and it is a rarity to find. When you think industrial kitchen supplies, don't just think restaurant or business because they can also accommodate your home design as long as it is done correctly.
Kitchen accessories & finishing touches - Accessories in an industrial style kitchen are all about metallic finishes - from home accessories in rich copper to utensils in stainless steel. Kitchen cabinet and drawer handles are an easy way to add a dash of metallic sheen. Pewter-effect handles (pictured) look great in this style of kitchen. Choose bar or d-shaped options for a modern twist on this traditional look. Want a brighter look? Opt for copper handles for a warmer metal finish.
Kitchen worktops - With a style that focuses on tiles and bricks, solid wood worktops are a great way to add more warmth and character. Darker woods, like cherry and walnut, work well in the industrial kitchen and they will develop over time – the colour becoming deeper as the years go by. They are thick and come with square edges, for a truly authentic and visually stunning look. If you want the look of wood with no specialist care required, check out our wood-effect laminate worktops – they are hard-wearing and come in several effects other than wood.
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.
