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.
The flooring of an industrial space is typically a sleek cement or dark or painted hardwood. These floorings are inexpensive and durable, and even when scuffed or marked up, they still look good in an industrial space. Lighting should be limited to simple factory type lighting and elaborate pendant lighting and chandeliers contrast with the overall feel. Yes, the industrial look is such a departure from traditional design, but it is still a look that many people love. It has a "simple life" type of feel, a carefree and easy breezy feel while still being raw and edgy. Your Kitchen will have a lot of character with this style.
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.
Industrial extractor fans come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and strengths so it can be difficult to choose the best one for your restaurant kitchen.
