A kitchen fit for a New York industrial style apartment
The industrial style was popular in the United States during the 1950s when creative types converted old factories into housing. But rest assured, you don’t need a massive warehouse space or boho chic New York loft to make industrial style kitchen ideas work for you. That’s because industrial style kitchens, with their strong, uncluttered lines and focus on low-maintenance, are a highly appealing option for many Australian home owners. While industrial style kitchens have parallels with the contemporary kitchen, they boast certain unique traits. These include deliberately exposed fittings, re-purposed finds for that warehouse or factory feel, and a striking blend of rustic and ultra modern. Remember, while historically suited for dwellings with high ceilings, they can easily be integrated into just about any home these days. Enjoy open space, an abundance of light and a kitchen that not only looks incredible but is highly functional? The industry style kitchen is your perfect choice.
The key to industrial style kitchen design
There are many things the Advanced Cabinetry team loves about designing and building industrial style kitchens in Victoria. Edgy and stylish, this kitchen walks to the beat of a different drum. For maximum authenticity, our industrial style kitchen ideas pay tribute to elements such as exposed brick or concrete walls, minimal furnishings and plenty of natural lighting. When it comes to flooring, polished concrete floors or natural wooden floorboards are the hero of the day. To complete the picture, throw in some metal, say with stainless steel appliances (think Smeg’s classic range) or a stainless steel benchtop, which is not only strong but super easy to clean. Unlike in other kitchens, the industrial style purposefully leaves certain fittings and fixtures exposed, which means more care is need for their specs and installation. Other key features may include timber and iron bar stools, eye-catching factory pendant lighting, and reclaimed decorative pieces. You can easily source these flea or antique markets, or retro shops.
