            Industrial Kitchen Ideas

            Whether it is using carbon colours, commercial building materials, or features that hasten daily routine, like a fine-tuned factory line, these industrial kitchen ideas demonstrate how to create an urban-themed cooking space that takes inspiration from the industrial revolution. Adopting characteristics seen in 19th-century workplaces, these industrial kitchen designs are full of structural details that proudly show off the inner workings as part of the decor for a deconstructed effect, both from real customer homes and those examples handpicked by our designers. 


            • 1. Carbon colours

              Max out on industrial style by putting coal-coloured cupboards at the centre of a scheme. This will draw in a large room and make a bold statement. 
            • 2. Ashen tones

              For compact living spaces, a paler, monochrome shade, such as slate grey, offers an industrious aesthetic without overpowering a room. 

            • 3. Simplify with slab 

              Enjoy the best of functionality and form by choosing industrial kitchen units with a slab-style front that lets the rest of the scheme do the talking.
            • 4. Open up space

              With open-plan formats often adopted across factory floors, consider using this spacious layout to craft a multi-functional living area for the whole family.

            • 5. Heavy-duty looks

              Recreate the appearance of chunky building materials by selecting stone or timber-effect surfaces in laminate finish for an industrial kitchen on a budget. 
            • 6. Subway chic

              Metro-tiling offers a one-way ticket to an industrial kitchen design. Save time on this metropolitan look by switching to a tile-effect laminate board instead of tiles. 

            • 7. Steel the show

              Take advantage of the functional and fashionable benefits of stainless steel often used in the construction industry by using it for a sink-bowl. 
            • 8. Give it gas

              Fire up a man-made look by adding a gas stove complete with cast-iron supports for engineered character and a professional cooking experience. 
            • 9. Aged accessories 

              Drill down into the detail with industrial kitchen cabinet handles that have a patinated look or an aged finish for a well-worn look.
            • 10. Factory foundations

              Go to town with factory flooring by choosing a stone-effect surface that is manufactured to take whatever family life throws at it.
