Industrial décor is anything but shy, it’s one of those decorating styles that engulf the room on its very own. Unlike what many believe it’s actually easy to achieve, functional and always a conversation piece. Additionally, it is also a versatile concept that can be personalized to you and your personal style. Keeping that in mind, one of the very best places to begin working in industrial décor is in the kitchen. With that being said, here are 10 industrial kitchens that will take your breath away.
Emphasis on exposing Brick
If you do not have brick in your kitchen it is time to get some. Exposed brick is quite classic when it comes to industrial décor. The idea is to have a bit of the natural element intertwined into what your décor already has. If you want to have exposed brick but don’t know how to do so you might want to consider getting faux brick by having a wallpaper that resembles natural brick.
Just like in a factory you want to have an element of authentic display such as showcasing your pipelines, ductwork and/or beams. Having the overhead exposed will bring that industrial element without adding or removing additional décor. To achieve this open up your ceiling and have it become the main focus.
Lower Your Pendants
Lowering your light fixtures is a great way to have a charming bit that still feels very industrial and unique to the room. Consider having multiple light fixtures at once that are similar in size and aesthetics.
Hang Your Pots and Pans
The kitchen can become a cluster of items quite quickly; therefore, with that being said hanging your pots and pans can be an excellent idea. Not only will it showcase and keep your pots on hand, but it will give you an element of industrial décor. The key is using a rack that hangs from the ceiling and having mostly copper pots showcased.
Black is your Best Friend
Dark hues are your best friend when you are working on an industrial decorated kitchen, particularly the color black. Black is not only edgy but it’s rich and elegant when it is paired with other essential colors and textures.
Open Up the Room
Industrial décor is known for being open and airy, which is why you want to open up the space and allow your kitchen and dining area to be a blend of both. Additionally, having an open kitchen allows for better entertainment when you are having family and friends over.
Concrete is not only cheap but it’s versatile. Furthermore, it’s excellent to add to your kitchen when you want that industrial feel in a seamless manner. When left in its natural state concrete works great as a flooring option as well as part of the walls or even your kitchen island.
Wood is a classic element of industrial décor, there is just something cozy and “cool” about wood elements perfectly paired with industrial bits to brighten the darker hues and bring a cozy spin to traditional industrial appeal.
Light Wooden Floors
In retrospect, light wooden floors are perfect for a room that needs a bit of a contrast between the dark colors and the natural elements that make up the room. In order to do just that consider blond wood floors or even gray.
Do not be afraid of Color
Color is typically the last thing you might think of when you consider industrial décor. This is mainly due to darker hues being the main focus of an industrial kitchen. But that is not always the case, in order to break it down consider having colorful areas that blend well together and bring color right where you need it.
