Modern Industrial Loft Kitchen With Chalkboard Wall
Instead of a refrigerator plastered with magnets and notes, this loft kitchen features a chalkboard wall where people can leave reminders, notes or fun pictures. A gray metal rolling island, light fixture and stools add to the industrial feel of the space, while yellow zigzag wallpaper and a pink and red star runner add pops of color and texture.
Designer Kelli Kaufer created this one-of-a-kind backsplash using her client’s prized collection of buttons (plus a few extras bought at garage sales and crafts stores). “I used a double-sided sticky mat,” she says. “Apply the mat to the wall and start placing the buttons. You may want to use the back side of the buttons as there are fewer ridges. Once the buttons are in place, apply a non-sanded grout just like you would grout normal tile. This will help hold the buttons in place.”
The clean, modern cabinets have beechwood surrounds, plywood back boxes and feature soft-close. The cabinet hardware has the look of weathered copper with a blue-green verdigris patina. Antique inspiration is behind the kitchen island, which is clad in a cold-rolled steel wrapped around a plywood substrate for a smooth and durable work surface.
