Industrial Style Kitchens

Industrial-style kitchen furnishing guide

Visible bricks and pipes, recycled elements, metal details: the industrial-style kitchen has now made its way into homes, bringing with it all the charm of the old New York warehouses that were converted into lofts and artists’ studios in the 1980s, starting this trend in interior design. If you’re tempted to buy industrial furniture, follow this little guide to recreate the typical atmosphere of this style in your kitchen.

Colors and materials

The industrial style focuses on dark colors such as black, blue, brown and gray, used in their roughest variants to reproduce the "worn-out" effect. However, in order not to darken the kitchen too much, it is important to balance the hues well by adding a few touches of color, such as in accessories: rust, red and orange, reminiscent of an old factory setting, are the most commonly used bright colors.

Another solution to create a warm atmosphere is the use of natural materials, which can be alternated with dark colors: first of all it is wood and then metals such as steel, copper and aluminum: the visual and material contrast leads to really evocative compositions.

Blocks

The first-class industrial kitchen focuses not only on aesthetics, but above all on functionality: containers, compartments with open fronts and vintage glass fronts are a symbol of industrial design, complemented by counters and carts on wheels. Overall, despite their simple and clear silhouettes, they are robust and designed to blend together, creating an ever-changing and unique environment, suitable for those who live in a kitchen and want to stand out.

Lighting

Another of the most important aspects of an industrial style kitchen is natural and artificial light. These are large windows with minimal frames that let in light, as well as lamps with wrought iron fixtures or hanging from the ceiling with visible wires. Finally, spotlights, large floor lamps and illuminated plates are the main elements fixed to show the way to style: yours!
