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.

Copper: for a unique kitchen

Petersfield, Hampshire kitchens with copper as seen on Channel 4 Big House, Little House

Copper has been at the forefront of design for a few years now and it is certainly finding it’s place within the kitchen.

The material can really add a modern twist to your space whilst still remaining elegant and simple. Here at Anthony Edwards, we have started working with copper within many of our projects. Statement lighting is one item that copper can really work for. Within one of our Petersfield kitchens, we showcased a beautiful set of copper pendant lights – that were featured on Houzz in a recent ideabook of theirs. They also caught the attention of Aidan Keane when this kitchen was featured on Channel 4’s Big House, Little House back in April. They worked well to make a powerful statement against the white aesthetic and more muted tones.

We’ve also used copper more extensively, in the form of worktops and bespoke shelves. A Hawkley kitchen of ours used the Anthony Edwards Modern Country style as a starting point to mix a beautiful homely layout with an eye-catching, dynamic copper worktop. The copper finish isn’t overused but it brings a quirky spin to the kitchen.

Copper, along with rose gold and brass, can really bring a sense of warmth and cosiness into the house. In a kitchen it can be the perfect addition to make a design statement. It’s certainly not for everyone but it is something that can be brought into the kitchen in any scale.

Copper can be used in so many unique ways. There are more and more copper pieces emerging on the market that can provide a simple but pleasing touch to your kitchen. A copper kettle, a copper clock or a copper cutlery set: the possibilities are endless.
