The Industrial Design Style

Vintage Industrial Kitchen Design Hampshire

The industrial design style is extremely contemporary and differs from any other design aesthetic out there today. It’s all based around working with materials that ordinarily would be hidden or not necessarily a focal point in a space. Exposed brick, stainless steel surfaces and emphasis on wood make up some of the design characteristics. The look is almost a little unfinished but that’s what makes it so unique. It’s a style that is becoming popular in shops and restaurants: showcasing a really casual and stripped back layout.

Here at Anthony Edwards Kitchens, we recently completed our first vintage industrial kitchen design. The 3D render above, created with the programme ArtiCAD, shows our final design for the kitchen we installed. Wood stands out as a dominant feature to compliment the concrete worktop and grey tones. The exposed brick also adds a quirky element to the design.

Although it’s a unique look, elements of the industrial design style can be applied to many kitchens. Whether you want to add a metal surface, vintage pieces or some rustic furniture: it can make such a statement in the kitchen or any room in the house.

Wine Storage Solutions

Bespoke Quality Kitchen Design High Quality Wine Storage Hampshire

Finding storage for wine is often part of the design brief for a new kitchen. The location is important, as it needs to work with the flow of the kitchen and not disrupt the function. There are many options, some discreet and hidden – others that become a focal point.

Wine fridges with 1, 2 and 3 temperature zones have become popular; they start with small slim line units to tall cabinets. We also design one off bespoke wine storage solutions often in oak and walnut that are a part of the cabinets themselves. This type of storage can save substantial space, be very practical and give a real wow!

Kitchen Storage Space and the Rise of Larders

Storage Space Larder in Anthony Edwards Kitchen

Finding storage space for the multitude of items found in a kitchen can be extremely difficult. Not only does there need to be substantial room for food but there also needs to be somewhere for the cutlery, appliances and any other things that may have found their way into the kitchen over time. A kitchen has become a space for living in with so many different dimensions. With clutter built up on surfaces, a room that is meant to be comfortable can quickly become somewhere you want to avoid.

More and more kitchen owners, however, are looking at interesting and quirky ways to present kitchen storage where it can still be firmly out of sight. Kitchen necessities don’t have to be an unwanted mess. They can be beautifully presented whilst still being accessible.

Many are choosing to install larders within the kitchen as a way to really effectively store numerous items in a way that is pleasing to the eye. Larders allow for simple organisation that doesn’t take up much space at all. They’re a form of storage that makes sense within the kitchen space.
