An industrial kitchen for less
The industrial look is very on-trend at the moment. Embracing that trend can seem costly. This kitchen shows that selecting a variety of cost-effective materials can give a similar look for a lot less.
Where to splurge, when to save?
The key, when taking a less expensive route to the kitchen of your dreams, is to include some high-end items that grab attention and remain with the viewer. Notice the beautiful pendants in this kitchen and how they set the kitchen off with industrial style. This is where to splurge. Savings may, on the other hand, be made on the big-ticket items such as benchtops. Modern laminates have such a realistic tone and texture that they are not found out as a substitute until they are touched!
A colour pallet of black, white and timber is synonymous with the modern industrial look. The timber accents in this kitchen are laminate as are the matte black and white cabinets. Clever design and careful styling are all it takes to pull off an industrial kitchen that is a fraction of the cost of a high spec cousin.
Lighting like you mean it
As well as the high-end pendants, the owner of this kitchen has also included under bench lighting. LEDs used for this application are not going to break the bank, but they do give a lot of bang for the buck! A well-lit splashback – whatever material you choose – gives a luxurious feeling. A well-lit workspace also helps you to cook safely and efficiently – everyone wins.
