Industrial style can also be seen in the use of unexpected materials used in building. Shipping containers are now being used in architecture for homes and commercial spaces. The Industrial style of design is most commonly found in urban areas including cities and lofts.
These locations also contain some of the key elements used to achieve this style of design including exposed bricks and pipes, concrete flooring, and large open windows. To achieve an industrial feel, a natural color palette is most commonly used. A mix of grays, neutrals and rustic colors can be seen in these spaces.
This is important because spaces like lofts tend to be very open. These islands tend to be made of reclaimed wood or other earthy materials. They can be paired with barstools that are made of wood or contain metal finishes.
Open faced shelving and storage are big hits when it comes to an industrial kitchen.
Lighter colored floors or polished concrete are ways to incorporate this style into any kitchen.
