White cabinets line the walls of this modern industrial kitchen with light hardwood floors. Stainless steel appliances are flanked by cabinets with brass hardware and marble countertops, plus a shiplap and sheet metal range hood.
John and Anthony, of America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designed an open, functional space to meet their needs. To define the boundaries of the new kitchen space, the Kitchen Cousins added a brick wall to separate the kitchen from the living room, a small, informal breakfast bar to separate the dining room and the stove and shelving to separate the space from the home office adjacent to the kitchen.
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.”
This kitchen was once small and closed in, so Anthony and John from America's Most Desperate Kitchens removed several walls, allowing them to expand the kitchen into the adjacent spaces, creating a larger, more functional area. An exposed brick partition, an ordinary wall that was cut down and cased in brick, remains to give the kitchen and living room spaces a little definition.
The homeowners wanted a unique kitchen space, so designers featured a hidden television inside the space's mirrored backsplash. The special dielectric mirror was designed and fabricated so that it can slide behind the built-in kitchen cabinets in case the television ever needed to be repaired. The home already had cast iron columns, so designers incorporated them into the home's design, giving the space a more industrial feel.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, to maximize the space in this kitchen, Joanna added a functional kitchen island to increase seating options and give the family more prep space for meals. Gray cabinets match the gray trim and molding from the rest of the open concept first floor, and rustic stools provide complementary style. A subway tile backsplash polishes off the space, finishing out the design.
The homeowner knew she wanted to transform her home into a transitional, industrial space. Upper black cabinets contrast against the soft gray cabinets below, which are topped in clean Caesarstone countertops. Adding a sweet bistro touch is the subway tile used inside the back of the glass cabinets.
Incorporate the ultimate trio - The three key materials for an industrial interior are brick, wood and metal. This industrial kitchen mixes all three and creates a dramatic effect, adding exposed duct work for extra impact.
A wall covered in chalkboard paint creates a place for the family to jot notes or doodle in this contemporary family-friendly kitchen. Gray quartz countertops, concrete floors and bar stools add to the industrial feel of the space, while white cabinets and pendant light fixtures add pops of color and texture.
In this kitchen, designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens created an elegant, industrial space for these homeowners. The neutral color of the cabinets and countertops are offset by the blue backsplash that makes the space pop, while metal and wood blend together to create a seamless, industrial design.
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.
