Designing an Industrial Style Kitchen

Posted in Blog
20 June 2023

An industrial kitchen design is characterised by its raw, utilitarian, and minimalist aesthetic.

It draws inspiration from commercial kitchens and factories, focusing on functionality and a stripped-down, no-frills approach.

At K Interiors, we offer a range of stunning kitchens that will enable you to create a beautiful industrial-style look for your kitchen.

Here are key elements commonly found in an industrial kitchen:

Exposed Brick or Concrete Walls

Industrial kitchens often feature exposed brick or concrete walls, showcasing the building's original structural elements. This creates a rugged and authentic look, emphasising the industrial theme.

Stainless Steel Surfaces

Stainless steel is a staple material in industrial kitchens due to its durability, easy maintenance, and hygienic properties. Countertops, backsplashes, appliances, and sinks are typically made of stainless steel, providing a sleek and professional appearance.

Open Shelving and Wire Racks

Rather than traditional cabinets, industrial kitchens often use open shelving and wire racks for storage. This allows for easy access to utensils, pots, and pans while adding to the industrial aesthetic. It also showcases the kitchenware and creates an organised yet exposed look.

Industrial Lighting

Lighting plays a crucial role in an industrial kitchen. Exposed bulbs, pendant lights with metal shades, or industrial-style fixtures with bare Edison bulbs are commonly used. The lighting is often hung from high ceilings or suspended over workstations to provide ample illumination.

Metal Accents and Hardware

Industrial kitchens incorporate metal accents and hardware to reinforce the industrial theme. Cabinet handles, drawer pulls, and other hardware are typically made of materials like iron, brass, or copper. These elements add a touch of authenticity and ruggedness to the design.

Open Layout and Minimalist Design

Industrial kitchens often have an open layout, maximising efficiency and functionality. The design emphasises ample space for movement and workstations that are strategically placed for workflow optimisation. The overall aesthetic is minimalist, with clean lines and a focus on practicality.

Industrial Appliances

Industrial-style appliances are a key feature in this type of kitchen. Stainless steel, heavy-duty ranges, ovens, and refrigerators with a commercial look are commonly used. These appliances are designed for professional use, providing durability and high performance.

Concrete or Metal Flooring

Industrial kitchens often feature concrete or metal flooring for their durability and ease of maintenance. Polished concrete floors or metal tiles create a sleek, industrial look while withstanding heavy foot traffic and spills.

Minimalistic Colour Palette

The colour palette in an industrial kitchen is typically neutral and understated. Shades of grey, black, white, and muted earth tones dominate the space, enhancing the industrial aesthetic. However, pops of colour can be introduced through accessories or artwork to add visual interest.

Utilitarian Accessories

Industrial kitchens often incorporate utilitarian accessories and equipment. Stainless steel or cast iron cookware, hanging pot racks, wall-mounted utensil holders, and magnetic knife strips are functional and contribute to the overall industrial vibe.

These elements collectively create an industrial kitchen that is practical, efficient, and visually striking. The focus on functionality, raw materials, and minimalist design principles make this style popular in contemporary home kitchens and professional culinary environments alike.
