5 Industrial Kitchens We'd Love to Have at Home

Be inspired to create your own interesting cooking corner


When we step into the kitchen, we immediately feel the warm vibe it exudes. As the heart of the home and as the special place where delicious magic happens, this area is often completed with bright and cheerful hues. If given a chance, would you want to experiment with a different look?

You can still keep it special with elements like concrete and steel. An industrial-inspired kitchen can add a distinct charm to your space and give it an extra edge. Here are five photos that you would surely love—each reminiscent of your favorite restaurant or coffee shop.

Maintain a neutral kitchen by working with a concrete countertop, cement slabs for shelving, and a gray palette for the walls and cabinets. For extra storage, you can opt for stainless steel freestanding shelves. These are great for storing pots and pans and can blend well with the other appliances that you have.

How can you soften up a space that's dominated by materials that are seem too stiff and strong? Adding plants can liven up your cooking corner. Display them on shelves or create a vignette by the kitchen counter. A group of herbs in cute planters will surely do the trick!

If you're designing your industrial kitchen, you can inject accessories in brass or copper finish to give it a vintage appeal.

Wood can add warmth to your kitchen and it works well with concrete or steel. If you have a kitchen island, you can have a wooden base and a concrete surface on top. Achieve the coffee house vibe by choosing pendant lamps, vintage-inspired barstools, and wall-mounted open shelves.

Giving your walls an upgrade with the right treatment can also help you achieve the space of your dreams. Pair your copper pendant lights with silver mosaic tiles to add a modern flair to your space. Since the tiles have a futuristic appeal, it can also double as accent pieces. Complete the look with white cabinets and a non-slip area rug.

If you have a compact kitchen and you want to take things slow in terms of renovating the space, you can start by choosing white subway tiles for the walls. These wonder rectangles can make up a canvas that you can easily liven up with rustic lighting fixtures.

Another simple upgrade? Add a corner shelf made of steel pipes and wooden planks. You can create one on your own or order a lovely piece from Vintage Hardware. The store offers pipe shelves and quirky lights that are perfect for your cooking corner, too!
