How To Give Your Kitchen An Industrial Look

There are several different types of styles that you can choose from when you are designing a new kitchen. Although traditional kitchens have been a fan favorite for a long time, there are other styles that you may want to consider, like an industrial-style kitchen. An industrial-style design is a really fun way to showcase both a masculine and a feminine feel. By incorporating a variety of industrial elements, like exposed beams and pipes, you can create the ultimate industrial-looking kitchen. To help you channel that style perfectly, this article will take a closer look at a few different things to add to your kitchen. 

Stainless steel cabinets

Although wood cabinets can give you an industrial feel in your new kitchen, stainless steel cabinets are really going to help you achieve that look. The great thing about stainless steel cabinets is that you won't have to worry about them chipping the way that painted wood cabinets do. And, they are really resistant to wear and tear so if you have little kids, then your stainless-steel cabinets won't show all of the scratches and things that traditional wood cabinets might. Another fun thing about stainless steel cabinets is that you can have them powder coated in whatever color you'd like. 

Concrete Countertops

One of the best countertop materials that you should consider putting on top of your stainless-steel cabinets is concrete. Concrete tends to be a lot more affordable than materials like granite and quartz, and it will tie everything in together really well. Another fun thing about concrete countertops is that they age really beautifully. For instance, if they get a lot of water on them, then they may look a bit darker in some areas which just adds to the overall character of them. Just make sure that you have your concrete countertops sealed so that they don't stain from food or anything else. 

Pipe Lighting

Another thing you should consider getting is some pipe lighting. Pipe lighting is just industrial lighting that looks like it's made out of pies. Whether you add some industrial pipe pendants above your island or you go with a larger industrial light fixture in the center of your kitchen, this type of lighting will add some unique character to your kitchen's overall design.
