What’s Your Style? A Close Look at Industrial Kitchens


When you are considering remodeling your kitchen, you likely have a style in mind—even if you don’t know what the style is called. Kitchens can range from traditional to industrial to farmhouse to contemporary—and there is even a difference between rustic farmhouse and modern farmhouse. Whatever you call it, your kitchen will end up with a style, and the cabinetry, countertop material, colors, and finishes all contribute. A well-designed kitchen considers how all of these elements work together—the better they work into a coordinated style, the more likely your new kitchen is to “wow.”

Today, we will take a look at what makes a kitchen “Industrial.”

What is Industrial Style?

Industrial design started in lofts and has since expanded. It celebrates the elements, so expect a big mix of textures—especially concrete, brick, and metal mixed with wood. You can go extreme with exposed brick or pipes and decorate with scrap metal and flea market finds, or you can mix it with modern highlighted with a few touches of metals and industrial items.

What will you see in industrial kitchens?

  • Colors that are mid-tone to dark-tone stains, earthy, muted and subdued browns, grays and blacks
  • Metal details such as rivets and pipe fittings.
  • Concrete or scraped wood flooring

What words describe an industrial kitchen?

  • Modern
  • Edgy
  • Raw

What goes with the style?

Concrete used anywhere will really pull the raw industrial look. Choose handles and metals with industrial finishes. Mix textures throughout. Accents of leather and galvanized materials add interest.
