Characterised by exposed brick walls, the use of stainless steel and reclaimed wood surfaces, and prominent design features such as ventilation units and filament light bulbs, industrial style kitchens are becoming increasingly popular all over again. Why the recent resurgence in this style of kitchen? Here are just a few reasons why.
The industrial style kitchen combines the look of a professional kitchen with quirky, factory-inspired touches. Combining the best aspects of old-world charm and modern sleekness, it is the perfect compromise.
Industrial style kitchens tend to be made from high-quality materials that last such as stainless steel worktops, heavy-duty appliances, and hardwood floors. While all of these materials create the 'professional' look that the industrial trend is known for, they are also extremely durable and are easy to clean.
Whatever the size or shape of your space, an industrial style kitchen will make the most of it whilst making it appear more open. Whether you widen the walkways or keep the worktops as minimalistic as possible, you can adapt this style to your home.
For people who cook a lot, this style of kitchen is perfect. Not only do they look professional, but they are also modelled on kitchens where actual professional chefs cook so the functionality is top of the range too!
You heard us right - the industrial style kitchen is a timeless trend, but it also gets better as time goes by. With such high-quality materials, the industrial style is easy to live with and maintain, not to mention, it ages well.
