Granite is easy to clean with soap and water, but we also suggest using Mr. Stone’s AGM Daily Cleaner. This product contains a small amount of sealant, so you essentially seal your countertops each time you clean. For those looking for an even lower maintenance stone than granite, they should consider quartz for their industrial kitchen. It is an engineered stone so it can come in many colors and pigments. Quartz does not require any annual sealing and can be cleaned with a simple mix of soap and water.
Kitchen worktops - With a style that focuses on tiles and bricks, solid wood worktops are a great way to add more warmth and character. Darker woods, like cherry and walnut, work well in the industrial kitchen and they will develop over time – the colour becoming deeper as the years go by. They are thick and come with square edges, for a truly authentic and visually stunning look. If you want the look of wood with no specialist care required, check out our wood-effect laminate worktops – they are hard-wearing and come in several effects other than wood.
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.
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.
