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.
The style works incredibly well in a kitchen and draws from pure textures and materials like exposed beams, natural wood, exposed brick, and neutral solid countertops. An Industrial style kitchen is crisp and raw. It lacks the characteristic refinement of traditional kitchens, and instead draws from an industrial pureness by exposing wastepipes, gas lines, and electrical wires to add to the design of the room.
Kitchen sinks & taps - Stainless steel sinks are the perfect choice for an industrial kitchen – the metallic look fitting right into the style. They are hard-wearing and easy to take care of, as well as being attractive. We also offer a range of linen finish stainless steel sinks which have all the features of normal stainless steel while offering more protection against visible scratches. If you have a solid wood or earthstone worktop, why not choose an undermount style and your sink will stylishly fit in below the worktop?
Kitchen walls & floors - The classic industrial look is to have exposed brickwork – the bricks adding warmth to a space filled with metal and concrete. You may wish to go for the full effect or limit to just a feature wall. Paint the other walls in neutral colours and you’ll soften the look significantly. Love the look of exposed brick but don’t fancy stripping the plaster off of your walls? Simply recreate the look with brick effect wallpaper. We have a number of different options, including one that replicates classic red brick, as well one that features more muted grey bricks for a more neutral finish.
