If you do lots of cooking at home, you need a look that wears well through heavy use, which is why the simple, rugged aesthetic of an industrial kitchen remains popular. Now, Big Chill has introduced the Classic Series, a professional stove and hood specially made for industrial-style kitchens. The set is constructed of heavy-duty stainless steel, comes in six colors, and is finished with mixed textured metals.
Renovations of the Carroll family's kitchen include removal of walls to open the space up, unstained walnut wood, quartz countertops, sea foam green and tangerine paint, huge dovetail joints, and a walk-around pantry. Chip's overall goal was to create an industrial-style kitchen that is still homey and intimate.
This modern, industrial kitchen features white cabinets, a range hood with shiplap and sheet metal, and industrial-feel pendant lights above the kitchen island. Guests can enjoy a cup of coffee at one of four bar chairs and enjoy an outdoor view from the kitchen window.
Instead of springing for a built-in island, consider a freestanding one made from recycled materials. Case in point: the Industrial Recycled High Bench Table, shown in Shabby Chic White, $1,999, designed by Will Marx for GHIFY. Handmade in Brisbane, Australia, of native Australian timber, the design was inspired by the architecture of Queensland. Says GHIFY, “This island is one of our signature designs, which has been hugely popular as a kitchen island for added counter space, as a high bench dining table for the eat-in kitchen and as a workbench/desk. It is a timeless industrial recycled styled table that can be custom-built to any size, color or finish. Each table comes with a 10-year warranty.”
A brilliant mix of materials gives this kitchen a contemporary blended style. The exposed duct work and brick wall lend a warehouse-loft vibe, while the shiny black wall tile, glass light fixtures and stainless-steel appliance add an industrial touch. Natural solid-surface countertops and wood cabinetry provide a natural element.
The culinary artist can certainly get down to business in this industrial-style kitchen that pays tribute to stainless steel. From the walls to the cabinets to the appliances, designer Andrea Michaelson achieves a coherent look in a silver tone, with contemporary artwork as the focal point in the room.

Professional-grade appliances and expansive kitchen island suit the homeowners of this Eugene, Ore., house, who love to cook. Storage is mostly tucked into the spaces in the lower half of the kitchen to suit the homeowners, who did not want upper cabinetry.
The exposed kitchen — spacious and open — serves as the focal point of this restaurant, connecting diners to chefs in a way that's unusual for fine dining. Exposed ductwork and steel accents give the space an industrial vibe.
Industrial-style barstools provide casual seating at the two-tiered peninsula in this contemporary kitchen. Industrial pendants coordinate with the barstools, and horse artwork adds unexpected interest while keeping with the space's neutral palette.
Although this neutral-hued kitchen is transitional in its approach, it also suggests an industrial-style edginess in its furnishings and architecture. The sharp lines of the graduated tray ceiling and the rustic center island and barstools introduce these aesthetics while complementing the more traditional elements in the cabinetry and flooring for a successful marriage of otherwise clashing forms.
