There is no need for extensive cabinetry in an industrial kitchen as open shelving on an exposed brick face is the norm, typically using reclaimed old timbers or beams that were already within the space. When displaying items on these exposed shelves, it is best to stick with the trending materials of wood, stainless steel and plain white dishware. It is hard to accurately recreate the looks of exposed ductwork in a space, so traditionally this type of design is used in renovated loft spaces.
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.
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.
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.
