While cooking and preparing food may be low on some people's list of priorities, for others these activities will completely dominate the kitchen design ideas: full-time cooks and caterers may only really feel at ease in a room that has been devoted to working with food rather than dining and entertaining. Professional kitchen design ideas are planned as workplaces, taking into account the exacting regulations of commercial hygiene standards. And it is worth noting that if you will be producing food for public consumption in your kitchen, the same constraints will apply, even in what you would consider your domestic environment.
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.
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.
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?
