The luxurious look of marble clashes with the feel of an industrial kitchen, so homeowners tend to gravitate toward the durability and sleekness of granite. The natural stone industry sees trends come and go, but the overall universal nature of granite makes it work with nearly every design trend. Countertop fabricators should stock their slab yards with a wide selection of many granite stone colors to best serve each design trend.
This hard-edged, industrial-looking style of kitchen may appear intimidating if you do not cook regularly for vast numbers of people, but a meticulous consideration of efficient ergonomics achieves an unexpected degree of comfort which can be very attractive. An uninterrupted run of work surfaces allows the cook to move around the kitchen at speed; in stainless steel, the preferred surface of professional cooks, it will be extremely hard-wearing and resistant to excessive heat and both acid and alkaline stains.
Kitchen appliances, cookers & hobs - The industrial kitchen look is all about having the best equipment and utensils possible – replicating the items you’d find in a professional catering kitchen. Black and chrome options both look great in this style. A large American style fridge freezer is an impressive addition and will hold all of your groceries easily. Range cookers allow you to cook several things at once, and include gas hobs with multiple rings to sauté, boil and steam your food. And a large dishwasher will help keep your surfaces clear while you’re cooking up a storm.
This kitchen style perfectly suits a darkly coloured sink. Our composite quartz sinks (pictured) are available in black as well as white, and are extremely durable. Heat resistant to over 200 degrees centigrade, they're also highly scratch-resistant. Or for a look that's a little bit different, take a look at our toughened glass sinks. The frame is made from black reinforced glass, while the sink is stainless steel - a stylish and unexpected combination.
