Open shelves above worktops display more equipment, which may have been chosen for its stackability, while tall, deep shelves at lower levels are used as dry food cupboards for catering-size jars, cans and more weighty items. Many cooks prefer wide drawers so all the contents are visible from above, and can be easily removed and replaced. Razor-sharp knives - a cook's most precious equipment - are carefully protected in a knife rack or felt-lined drawer. One or even two dishwashers are essential rather than a luxury here, and they need to take a wide range of items: pots and pans as well as the standard dinner service.
Another popular option for an industrial style kitchen is tiles. Choose white tiles for a clean look that will lighten your room and use a dark grout to make your choice of tile really stand out. Or maybe a stainless steel effect tile (pictured) to keep with the professional tone of the style. We love these on-trend black subway style tiles which will add some gloss to your space. Add some further interest by playing around with the pattern in which you lay your tiles. Consider herringbone, crosshatch or diagonal layouts to create a slightly different look.
