4 furniture ideas to ensure your industrial chic kitchen furniture is timeless
Industrial style is all the rage right now. Interior designers love it because it’s edgy and elegant. Homeowners love it because it’s cool and simple to maintain. However, it’s trendy. We love trends, but they simply won’t do for kitchens because we want things that last for the long term! To ensure your industrial chic kitchen hangs in there, here are 4 furniture ideas that will stand the test of time (and satisfy our desire to stay stylish).
1. Poured concrete worktops.
They may seem “trendy” but concrete worktops have been around for many years now. As such, they’ve made the leap from trend to industrial chic kitchen icon. Matte and warm grey with subtle undulating patterns, concrete worktops in fact have all of the features of traditional marble!
2. Wooden dining table.
A natural material in the midst of stainless steel, concrete and rough-luxe pendant lamps, the wooden dining table brings a timeless quality to the industrial chic kitchen. A table with metal legs, topped with light wood stained in a natural finish is an enduring feature. For an edgier option, choose a wood trestle table stained matte black. The colour and finish will certainly be beautiful for years to come.
Warmer than stark white, and less intimidating than black, grey is a mainstay in the industrial kitchen because it is an easy colour to get along with. The neutral’s variations run the gamut from warm to cool, making it an ideal choice for the walls of an industrial kitchen, but also the cabinets. Also grey’s ageless quality suits a variety of cabinet styles. A homey feeling can be added to a loft with traditional grey shaker cabinets. Flat fronted, handless grey cabinets, hor, are 100% contemporary regardless of the year.
4.Stainless steel kitchen island.
The industrial kitchen demands a kitchen island. Though it may be tempting to retrofit a vintage table into an island, or refurbish a set of cupboards reclaimed from an old manufacturing plant, the key to a timeless industrial island is stainless steel. Practical and attractive, it has the ideal combination of form and function to add a classic touch to an industrial space.
