Exposed brick, uncovered pipework, metal furnishings, matte worktops and black accessories are combined to achieve a stripped-back, industrial-style kitchen. Whether you opt for the full look or simply introduce one or two elements into your current space, these hints toward an industrial kitchen will emphasise a raw, modern space.

For those of you who are beginning the design process for your industrial-style kitchen,  here are some of our favourite kitchen designs that showcase the industrial trend…

Glass cabinetry, copper elements and touches of greenery make the kitchen feel modern and dynamic.
