If you’d like to create such kitchen in your home, you need to piece together the components.

What are the standard components in an industrial style kitchen?

Stainless: As much stainless as you can manage, although black can be an surprising alternative. But unless you’re doing a black theme, get as much as you can.
Open Shelving: At least on the top but you can do the bottom too. If dust is an issue in urban areas, use glass window style cupboard doors.
Overhead Pot Racks: Cast iron or stainless hangers for your pots and pans. And hang a chile and garlic ristra or two.
Utensil Bar: Don’t forget a stainless bar to hang your kitchen utensils from, with stainless S hooks. Everything in plain view and easy to reach.
Edison Lights: These radio bulbs are a nice touch, even better if you can use them in pipe lights.
Exposed Structures: Bonus points for exposed brick to show off and even better if you can add exposed duct-work.
Concrete: Concrete floors, concrete counters, concrete walls.
Distressed Furniture: Especially counter stools.
Windows: Black metal framed windows, that have come to be known as loft windows, are another strong choice.
Wood: It’s great to have a big thick slab of solid wood, either for a counter or tabletop.
Beams: Exposed beams and pillars are good.
Faucets: And finally, that ubiquitous pull down industrial kitchen faucet.
Put five or six of these components together and you’re well on your way. Keep your eyes open, you’ll find many of these items in these stunning kitchen images below.

Unlike a rolling library ladder, this kitchen ladder unhooks to move locations. A tall, narrow wine cooler blends into the cupboards.

The long solid wood harvest table is a perfect match for the black aluminum industrial chairs. And the cement column with the fireplace and dish pantry is a perfect match for the industrial look. And every good chef worth his salt knows that you can’t beat white porcelain dinnerware for a blank palette on which to serve your culinary creations.
