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.
You have to be able to encompass all aspects of the industrial kitchen supplies. What kind of counters are you looking for? Do you like marble? What kind of overall design are you going for? Have you already picked out your tabletop designs and how big would you like them to be? Are you going to place booths in the establishment? Seating is extremely important in any business because you want to make sure you can accommodate all of your guests. Make sure that you have a lot of variety in your selections. I myself have never thought of using industrial kitchen supplies but I do admire the way that some people use them to decorate their own homes. By browsing the internet I have also found some styles that I would like to borrow ideas.
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.
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.
