Kitchens are the heart of the home and need to be hardwearing and practical to withstand high traffic and daily use. So it isn't a surprise that there is a trend towards a more industrial look for our homes.
Whether you would like to introduce a subtle nod to the style or want something more bespoke, here is our guide to achieving an industrial look in any kitchen.
When you think of an industrial interior, concrete is probably the first thing that comes to mind. If you love the look of concrete, we have a sink that will work for you. Blanco's Silgranit range features a concrete look sink but is made up of granite. Silgranit sinks are made from 80% quartz sand which is the strongest component of granite. It is hardwearing, hygienic, easy to clean and has the look and feel of concrete with all the added benefits of granite.
Durinox is a new stainless steel with a matte finish and is twice as durable as conventional stainless steel sinks. It is scratch and finger proof resistant making it easy to clean. The surface gets these properties from the process of blasting. The material is blasted with over 1 billion tiny stainless steel balls on both sides to increase its strength and produce its velvety texture.
Curating an industrial look with smaller items like sink and taps is a good way to introduce the aesthetic to your home. However, if you want to create a bolder statement, a concrete look worktop will work well.
Cosentino's Dekton Industrial Collection has many concrete-inspired worktops. What's more, Dekton's high UV, scratch, stain and heat resistant properties mean it is a practical solution for your new kitchen. There are poured and matte finishes for a utilitarian style.
Another great way to create impact is to consider the finish of your kitchen units. Rempp's Beton Dunkel range (pictured below) showcases two complementary greys. The lighter grey help keep the kitchen light whilst the darker grey adds depth to the room. Both colours emulate concrete. You can add warmth to the look with wooden accessories, chairs or units.
You can also get real concrete unit door options with Rempp. Yes, you read that right but don't worry, it won't be like the Flintstones. Specially manufactured, the veneers are only millimetres thick meaning they are lightweight but still retain the look and feel of real concrete. Rotpunkt provides a range of ceramic fronted doors which allow for a similarly tactile surface.
