Industrial kitchens are designed to celebrate the kitchen in its most raw and authentic form. From the iconic 50s industrial era to modern loft style apartments, industrial style kitchens strip away the clutter and noise to create a stunning display of space and character. Through a combination of spaces and appliances, you can create your own industrial kitchen.

Industrial Kitchen Design Layout

To nail the industrial kitchen trend, it must be designed and executed properly. Start with your desired kitchen layout as a base and then infuse the industrial energy into it. Choosing the kitchen design that best complements your space and purpose.

For larger spaces, the U-Shaped Kitchen acts as a perfect canvas for industrial style kitchens. Surrounded by slick appliances, bare walls and rustic furniture, it is the dream industrial kitchen for chefs and entertainers alike.

In medium to large open-plan living spaces, the L-Shaped Kitchen brings industrialism to the fore with sharp edges, minimalistic features and appliances that pop.

A prominent feature in most industrial kitchens is the pared back simplicity and functionality, and this is beautifully captured in the Galley Kitchen style. Best suited for smaller kitchens, it features a long benchtop running parallel to the kitchen counter which houses the cabinetry.

Industrial kitchens come alive in Kitchen Islands design, where the freestanding benchtop gives you the versatility to conceal cabinetry while exposing the unique elements of the kitchen.

In a Peninsula Kitchen, the island counter is connected to a wall bringing together contrasting materials and functionality to create the perfect backdrop for an industrial kitchen design.

Appliances For The Industrial Kitchen

When planning out industrial kitchens, don’t be afraid to experiment with contrasting textures, colours and materials. Varied textural richness adds elegance and character to the pared-back aesthetic of industrial kitchens. Think smooth surfaces and rough textures.
