Choosing the materials for an industrial style kitchen
Materials and textures are the most critical design features for every industrial kitchen design. The stuff you use will be the stars of the show, making an impact every time you enter the room. Typically, industrial home kitchens include a range of synthetic and natural materials. There’s plenty of room to get creative too! You might mix traditional and contemporary elements to create an eclectic aesthetic, or keep it consistent for a streamlined finish.
Some materials you could think about include:
- Exposed brickwork and stone
- High-shine metals, like chrome and polished copper
- Metals with a patina, like brushed brass and steel
- Natural wood
- Synthetic materials like composite, concrete or laminate
- Ceramic tiles
Industrial kitchens often use a mixture of materials to create the trademark eclectic aesthetic. What you choose is up to you, your lifestyle requirements, and style preferences.
