Industrial Kitchen & Dining Room Design
Industrial style has held its popularity in interior design for many years. Its influence has streamed from warehouses to restaurants into homes. It doesn’t seem as if the trend plans to stop any time soon! For this home’s kitchen and dining room, NFID focused on bringing forth the right amount of modernity and industrial aesthetic into these spaces. With this equation, it transformed this local home into a SoHo retreat.
The stainless steel and iron accents of the kitchen complete the industrial vibe of the space, contrasting with its dark tones. This can be seen with the stainless-steel appliances throughout the kitchen. Such as, the stove, overhead fan, dishwasher and microwave. In addition to the steel accent cabinet pulls. In result, they effectively compliment the dark walnut cabinetry. Moreover, the Blanco Silgranite undermount sink in colour ‘Cafe’, and faucet adds to the industrial vibe of the kitchen. This sink and faucet duo features increased depth. Therefore, giving the space an aura of an industrial kitchen.
The kitchen’s quartz countertops give the space a more “at home” feel. While effectively balancing out the darker tones of the cabinetry, flooring and brick walls. Meanwhile, by placing the microwave under the counter, this allows the kitchen to have more open counter space. This gives the island counter more functionality. Permitting homeowners, the space to dine right at the counter, and entertain guests while moving freely throughout the kitchen.
Additionally, this room allows for a more formal setting for dinner. With enough seats for a sit-down family style meal with six seats available. The use of mix and match chairs is another key feature in industrial design. For this dining set, we used Restoration Hardware’s tufted dining chair in cigar leather as our accent chairs. Its reclaimed look lies within its worn leather, further accentuating the rooms industrial design. It’s cigar leather balances the white hues of the rest of the modern dining chairs. In addition, the Sonneman Atelier Dining Room light fixture contributes to the modern touches of the room. This fixture gives the space a touch of uniqueness with the its modern design, further enhancing the steel accents of the overall design.
Furthermore, the walnut dining table from IZM perfectly matches the cabinetry and flooring. The dark wood aesthetic effectively flows from the kitchen into the dining room. Cementing the industrial atmosphere of this space are the art pieces showcasing industrial art by Lindsay Nichols Photography.
One of the key features in successfully delivering an industrial aesthetic, is exposed brick. The exposed brick carries the warehouse ambiance from the kitchen, streaming into the dining room. The brick chosen for these spaces is a perfect match in hues with the flooring, cabinetry and dining table. As a result, both room’s dark hues and contrasting steel accents, complete this local home’s SoHo apartment vibe. For this home, New York City is just around the corner.
