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.
One of the common drawbacks of industrial extractor fans is how loud they are. This can be such a problem that most restaurant managers choose to run them only when the amount of steam, smoke, and pollutants in the air reaches an intolerable level. However, there are some high end models that can run in a Quiet Mode that doesn’t make that much noise at all and even can be run all the time if you choose.
Complement your sink with a pull out or spring neck tap like the ones often on show in restaurant kitchens and the industrial look will be complete. Spring neck taps feature an extendable spout making it easier to tackle difficult cleaning tasks and look for ones with a spray head for rinsing fruit and vegetables easily. You may want to include a waste disposal unit underneath your sink. Having one will allow you to remove all food waste from your bins, grinding scraps into tiny pieces that are then rinsed away down the drain. It’s an ideal addition for a kitchen built to entertain and is constantly cooking.
