Industrial Style Kitchen – Furniture, Lighting And Materials

The industrial style kitchen is among the most suitable interior design choices. As it easily lends itself to many original interpretations to blend with the rest of our existing decor. Organic and decorated in wood, metal, and brick or bright and chic in white and stainless steel, it can be modified to better match our own unique style. Find out what wall and floor coverings, furniture, lighting fixtures, and other decorative accents to use in order to achieve a successful industrial style kitchen.


The Successful Layout Of The Vintage Industrial Style Kitchen

The workshop-style kitchen is not so difficult to achieve. You don’t necessarily have to copy word-for-word inside a factory, warehouse, or workshop in order to design a beautiful industrial style kitchen. On the contrary, success is in moderation, the right textures used, and especially in the details and the good decorating ideas to borrow.

For those who have to completely redo their kitchens, we will start with the base – the floor and the walls. What is particularly useful with an industrial style is that it supports several different materials in terms of floor and wall coverings and in addition – a marriage of organic materials and modern materials.

What are floor and wall covering in the Industrial Loft Kitchen?

In this regard, the waxed concrete floor, the solid wood floor, but also the large-format tiles and the resin are just 4 of the suitable options. Walls too are a negotiable item, but the real classic is raw concrete with an exposed brick accent wall.

White metro tiles and central island with super practical integrated stools

White brick or white subway tile wall cladding is another suitable option, especially in a small industrial-style kitchen or in open areas. Top the walls with several open storages such as solid wood and metal wall shelves.

In the black and white industrial style kitchen, please combine brick or tile with chalkboard paint. This option is super practical and pretty at the same time and adds a vintage touch to the design.

Apart from the exposed brick on the walls, it will display other structural elements of your interior well. Show off some part of the frame or opt for the visible ventilation ducts, which have become a classic in the loft interior style.

Glass roofs, spiral staircases, and mezzanine elements are to be highlighted

Overhead lighting, canopies, and metal window frames are the other structural elements worthy of highlighting. As well as the stairs and mezzanine floors, if you are lucky enough to have one or the other.

Stainless Steel Kitchen Equipment

Please combine all of these basics with modern stainless steel appliances or vintage equipment, depending on your own style, personal preferences, and the rest of your decor.

Extractor hoods suspended in the kitchen

Being on the subject of appliances, the built-in oven and the extractor hood suspended on stainless steel cable are good choices. And if the marriage of metal, brick, and concrete seems too austere, don’t be afraid to add color.

Yes, of course, the industrial style kitchen, although it is dedicated to the abundance of textures, is not necessarily colorless. A metallic table with partially peeling yellow paint, a bold purple cabinet, or a fridge in surprising hues are quite adequate.

Apart from the all-metal table, in successful lofts, you often find large pieces of furniture in wood and metal, such as the workshop-style work table.

The last essential element that we will mention is lighting. The right choice of lighting is in fact one of the pillars of successful decoration, whether industrial or not, and whatever the room in question.
