Why does the industrial style work so well for kitchens? Well, kitchens are perfect for this style, because rather than trying to hide or disguise appliances and utensil storage, an industrial look allows you to highlight them and make the utility and the design one and the same thing.
They’re also good rooms for showing off, particularly if you have a large kitchen-diner space where you eat as well as prepare food. The industrial style allows for a nice flow between the practically necessary bits and the pleasant socializing bits (like seating and bar areas).
There’s lots of different ways to add an industrial style to your kitchen, you just have to let your imagination run free.You can go for exposed brick walls, dark metal surfaces and tiled floors for a sort of early 20th century New York hotel kitchen look.
Or you can favor white cupboards and wooden flooring for a completely different feel, rather like a working kitchen in a Victorian-era stately home.
The obvious place to start with your industrial style kitchen lighting is with pendant lights. They can provide the general ambient light for the room, and they’re ideal for focused task lighting for work areas.
If you’re lucky enough to have a large open-plan kitchen, pendants also allow you to create specific pools of light, which can be used to separate different areas of the kitchen: food preparation, casual bar seating, more formal dining and so on.
