1. Neat, Tidy, and Marble Industrial-Style Kitchen

Sometimes industrial kitchens can feel a bit sterile, which is why when you're putting one in your home, it's always a good idea to incorporate some organic materials. The white cabinets, countertops,walls, and chairs make the room super clean and neat, whereas the wooden slanted ceilings and ceramic-looking floors bring necessary warmth to the room. A stainless steel hood vent is always going to bring that industrial vibe, coupled with a pristine stainless steel gas stove really brings the functionality to its peak. A drop down sink incorporated into the white marble waterfall kitchen island brings elegance, and a hidden fridge really hits it home that this kitchen is not only designed to work good, but it's designed to look even better.

2. Wood, Dark Marble, and High Ceilings Make for One Happy Home Cook

This kitchen does an incredible job of displaying and being discreet at the same time. Clear-glass framed cabinets allow you to expose your classiest dishware, whereas wood panel cabinets allow you to be discreet about those 25 boxes of unfinished cereal boxes. The blend of rustic and industrial-style kitchen boasts gorgeous dark countertops (which are great for concealing crumbs), a deep double bowl sink, and a seriously serious double stainless steel oven as well. This is the kitchen for 12 person Thanksgiving dinners done right. A kitchen island with an open side gives the kitchen a ton of breathing space, and backless stools create even more openness. High ceilings with modest, black pendant lights allow the kitchen appliances to shine their brightest, while exposed brick and naked staircases bring you back to that industrial style. Perfection!

3. Quaint, Informal, Yet Functional Industrial-Style Kitchen 

Industrial-style kitchens aren't only reserved for people who have acreage up the ying yang. You can still incorporate all of the elements of industrial-style kitchen in smaller spaces, and this is a kitchen that does that beautifully.  On one wall we have upper cabinets and lower drawers all made from darker cabinetry, which provides a lovely contrast to lighter colored walls and an even more lovely farmhouse-style deep white sink. With such little space, the designer still managed to fit a stainless steel dishwasher and 4-element gas stove, too. The beautiful light wooden dining table can also serve as extra counter space, thanks to those low back stools that give you the option. The refrigerator isn't in the image, but you can imagine it also serves its minimal purpose.

4. Spacious, Minimal, and Bright Industrial-Style Family Kitchen

Though upon first glance this kitchen may seem a little bit plain looking, the most important thing about it this design is that it incorporates all of the best bones required for a functioning kitchen. It's got amazing appliances, a ton of room, plenty of surface area, and lighting lighting lighting!  This kitchen comes complete was an impressive double door stainless steel fridge, plenty of under-cabinet space, toaster oven, a regular oven, all with a matching stainless steel hood. The dining room table can act as extra counter space, while the overhead lights above the gray countertops ensure you see exactly how tiny you're slicing that garlic.

5. Dark, but Never Dreary – The Sexiest Industrial Kitchen you’ve Ever Seen 

This kitchen is incredibly striking for so many reasons. The interior walls are black as well as the exterior of the home which you can see through the enormous windows. What may seem like a dangerous idea completely works in this setting because of the reflective stainless steel counters, classy pendant lights, and giant windows that let the daylight in.  I personally love this kitchen design because so much is happening in the kitchen island. You have your deep sink with drop down faucet, you've got your gas stove top and oven, your dishwasher, along with tons of prep space.

6. Everything you Need Industrial Kitchen – With More Than Enough Room for your Best Porcelain China

I'm always excited to see a design for a space that is really utilizing space. Do you ever think that hallways are just such an enormous waste of space? Well, this designer turned an entire wall into an opportunity to create an absolutely ridiculous and over the top unnecessary amount of cabinet space. This kitchen set up is clean, proper, and perfectly sized. We've got a classic stainless steel double sink with a drop down faucet, a hidden fridge (disguised as cabinetry) and some classy shelving so that you can display your teapot collection.  The light colored appliances and cement flooring do a great job of complimenting the darker ceiling panels, with the overhead lighting bringing it to a whole other level.

7. Charcoal with Colorful Accents – The Totally Funktional Industrial-Style Kitchen

I find this kitchen space pretty interesting because it seems small upon first glance, but the more you look at it, you see really how much room there is. I love incorporating eating into the kitchen, and this design is fantastic because it combines a kitchen island with a kitchen table. We have a super long marble countertop that extends the entire length of the kitchen, but only half has stools behind it. A centre shelf for your wine glasses splits up the room nicely, well hexagon pendant lights bring some eccentricity.  Complete with a double oven and huge drop down kitchen sink, this earth toned kitchen space is sure to suit the needs of anyone who enters it

8. The Secret Kitchen: A Cream Colored Industrial-Kitchen Dream

I felt that this kitchen deserved to be on this list because its simplicity screams industrial, but its clean lines preach classic designs. I call this the secret kitchen because all of the major appliances like the kitchen, oven, and dishwasher are all completely hidden with very smart cabinetry.  The beige colored cabinetry demands a dark contrast, which we receive with this dark gray waterfall countertop. The kitchen doesn't feel so small even when you combine a countertop with a kitchen island, and the few pops of color around the room really bring a breath of life into the simple design.  Cement ceilings bring us back to industrial inspiration, but wooden flooring and side tables bring us back to the natural.

9. What More do you Need Than Lighting and Sleek Countertops?

Right here we've got another great example of utilizing smaller spaces to the best of their ability. Though this is a small room, the design makes it feel large by using a wide pattern on the floor, and having plenty of space on either side of the kitchen island. Go a step further and use the kitchen island for your sink and for your oven, and use the back countertop space as a place to make drinks, to prep veggies, or however else you like to use your kitchen. I especially love the horizontal peephole into the next room, creating even more breathing room.  The wooden exposed panelling on the ceiling just scream industrial style design, and various colors and shapes for pendant lights bring some kitschy flare. Lighting incorporated into the flooring and countertops bring the space to a whole other level.

10. The Perfect Cocktail Hour Industrial Kitchen 

It's always exciting to see a kitchen design that's doing something new. Loft apartments demand smart designs, and that's what we get here. Let's start with coloring. White ceilings, countertops, walls, and fancy fridge really expand the feel of the room when they're combined with super dark flooring. Dark wood is brought up using lovely stools, bringing warmth to the room. Semi-see through cabinets add an interesting aspect but I think also works to expand the space of the room, and a floating marble countertop brings some drama where it needs to be. This kitchen just makes me want to chop asparagus really slowly, y'know? Though it's a little hard to see the appliances behind that impressive kitchen island slab, you can be confident that small kitchen is still mighty and provides you with all that you need.

11. Minimalist Kitchen at It’s Finest – Because it’s Beside your Backyard

I am just completely obsessed with the look of this kitchen. I love small spaces, and I especially love it when small spaces are ergonomic and designed with efficiency in mind. This kitchen is so so smart in that it utilizes an entire wall as the area for the fridge, ovens, and cabinetry. The opposite side of the room we have deep double sinks, tons of counter space, and our stove top elements. Small gray tiles lead you all the way to a sliding door that takes you outside to the backyard. Incorporating the outside with the inside like this makes the room feel completely expansive. This kitchen doesn't have the bells and whistles, it doesn't have fancy decor, but what it does have is elegance, which I think outshines all other things.

12. Rustic & Industrial: Striking the Perfect Kitchen Balance

Something I love about interior design is that there is no expectation of the designers to abide by any certain style or era of design, and this is a perfect representation of combining industrial elements that are brightened up by modern country-style flourish.  This is a huge kitchen framed by a brick-lay archway and very rustic and warm tiling. Pendant lights lead you down to a huge kitchen island where you find a stainless steel dishwasher and matching sink. Comfy looking upholstered seats sit kiddie corner making the space feel inviting. We've got a huge stainless steel fridge with a double oven, and if you look closely theres another neat little archway that leads you to the drink-making room with a wine fridge. If you think this is the perfect hosting home, you are right.

13. Brown and White Color Scheme for Industrial Kitchen Design

This kitchen space just reminds me of a S'mores bar. The foundation of the kitchen is chocolate, with gorgeously warm cabinetry with matching stools, which are all topped of with pristine porcelain white countertops.  This isn't the kitchen that's going to consistently feed a family of 12, but it will do just fine with a single oven incorporated into the wall, a perfectly sized gas stove with a matching hood vent, and a single deep sink with a spray hose to boot! White ceilings bring breath into the room, while exposed brick on the outer wall brings an added level of warmth. Lighting is found in all the right places not only to set the mood, but to illuminate your kitchen prep.

14. Nothing but Richness for This Industrial-Style Kitchen

This is the type of kitchen that if I entered, I would probably gasp out loud at the sheer beauty. It's cozy, it's extravagant, it's spacious, it's inviting, it's everything that you want in a kitchen. It's dark where it should be, it's light where it should be, it's everything.  Let's start with the color palette. I love the incorporation of different shades of brown, bringing texture and dimension to each portion of the room (it's particularly smart to have darker colors near stools where people may be grazing their feet against the surface).  Using white countertops and white glazed brick for the backsplash bringing a brightness exactly where it needs to be, and warm pendant lights ensures the white feels cozy and not glaring. Matching stainless steel appliances are simply a must, while chocolate colored cabinets frame the entire room.

15. Farmhouse Style Kitchen with Industrial Flare

I really really love this simple kitchen design. Though it doesn't scream industrial-style, it borrows concepts with the plain and simple cabinetry and clean lines. Though it may be small, it packs a punch, and that punch is filled with all you need in a kitchen. We have a quaintly sized refrigerator on the left, leading you to the perfectly sized stainless steel sink, which is followed by an adorably modest dishwasher, complete with the perfect sized stove. Though not too much counter space, you can always use that beautiful rustic kitchen table if needed.

16. The Tiniest Industrial-Style Kitchen you Ever Saw

Like we mentioned before, sometimes industrial kitchens aren't just for the biggest spaces, and this is proof of that. You can just imagine this studio being in New York City where space is not a luxury. This room is a kitchen, a dining room, and a laundry room all wrapped up into one.  This space is industrial style because its bones are exposed. Instead of cabinets there are shelves, instead of countertops we have the literal tops of other appliances. This is absolutely not the style for everyone, but this room has an eccentricity that I really appreciate.  I think what makes the room is the huge window that reveals the greenery outside, which brings a freshness and openness to this hilarious room. Plus, don't you just want to know what's at the top of that ladder?

17. Kitchen, Library, and Conference Room Rolled into One

I am always attracted to a kitchen space that is inviting and good for hosting, and this is space that is good for hosting. Opening with the bookshelf, this is a fun aspect that you don't normally see in kitchen spaces. Books are always inviting and adds a topic of conversation for your guests!  This space is also great for hosting because people can sit in the same room as whomever is preparing the meal. The light colored cabinets match the dining table, which pop even more thank to the black accents found on the countertop, backsplash, and even in the bookshelf!  I also always love when kitchen appliances are incorporated into the centre island, and the designer has done that here with the oven and slick stovetop. Differently colored chairs bring some fun to the space, while the huge windows on the outer wall bring in that gorgeous natural light.

18. Intensely Minimal and Tonal Industrial-Style Kitchen

I don't think I've ever seen a kitchen quite like this before. I imagine finding this in a Scandinavian Air Bnb that just floats off of a sauna. Here the ceiling blends into the wall that blends into the countertop that blends into the cabinetry that blends into the floor. Once you move away from that charcoal-hole (play on words for black-hole if you didn't pick that up) we get a much needed pop of lightness with that gorgeous wooden table and little bar area. I think that bar separator is especially smart because it cuts off the room into another, but still serves a function. Exposed brick brings some more warmth against the dark grey theme, and honestly I would have chosen a different type of pendant light, maybe something lighter and made of fabric to bring the warmth even further. After all, the kitchen is the most nourishing room in the home!

19. Simple and Stunning Industrial-Style Kitchen Space (Ready to Move In!)

Something that I think interior designers are so good at doing is using color to their advantage. Working with dark and light colors can really change the shape and feel of a room, and that is something that we are witnessing right here and now! Rustic cabinetry is brought to elegant place with black framing and countertops, and this theme is brought upward with the shelving on the back wall. Cement flooring is beautifully contrasted against white walls (is that a ceiling height radiator?) and a floor-to-ceiling glass door brings in that delicious natural light.

20. Rustic, Vintage, Yet Still Industrial: The Perfect Kitchen Space

This is another industrial style kitchen space that just makes me groan with pleasure (can I say that here?). Like I said in the title, this is space that marries rustic elements, vintage elements, and industrial elements to create something completely beautiful.  Exposed brick is warm, a white vintage fridge is funky, dark shelves and cabinets are elegant, and various plants, dried leaves, and fruits around the space make it super inviting. The focus here isn't at all on the appliances, but instead of the character of everything else. The kitchen island is a great place to cook dinner, to share a cocktail with friends, or to sit on and eat pickles right out of the jar while you're all by yourself.

21. Perfectly Balanced and Elegant Industrial-Style Kitchen

This is a superbly funky space. I love how shelving is used as a room separator, not only to be decorative but also to be functional! The color in the huge shelving unit is brought to the backsplash and upper cabinetry, while the lower cabinets elevate with some brightness.  The industrial style kitchen space is brought into the modern with black counter tops and smart lighting above them, with an even cooler cylindrical cluster of lights above the kitchen island.

22. The Getaway Cabin Industrial Kitchen (Ready to Feed a Dozen of your Closest Friends)

Another gorgeous room absolutely adorned in various kinds of high quality wood that was built to host nothing but the best of parties. The designer stuck to darker features for the bulk of this room, where colors are matched perfectly within the staircase, the kitchen island and stools, and the backsplash and cabinetry as well.  I just want to have breakfast on one of those stools. Stainless steel appliances are part of the reason why this space is industrial style, but also the exposed piping, gorgeous hardwood beams and exposed foundation.  This room could be in a farmhouse, in a ski lodge, in the suburbs, in the centre of the city, or anywhere else on the planet. No matter where it is, this kitchen gives you everything that you need and more.

23. Incredibly Modern but Warm Industrial-Style Kitchen

Oh this room is so incredibly beautiful! What I think is particularly special with this room is the use of shapes. You can tell that this is a big room because they've managed to make the kitchen island perpendicular with the rest of the room. And this is a huge kitchen island. It's not just a table, it acts as a place for storage, for prep, for seating, and to place your kitchen accessories as well. I also love the netting on the wall for a unique method of storage.  Though it's a bit harder to see, the back wall is what holds the bulk of the kitchen appliances, but that's the entire point. The charcoal kitchen island is the focal point, and everything else is complimentary. What's even cooler is the stovetop in the middle of the room, with a hood vent above it!

24. Not-Your-Standard Home Kitchen: Extravagance is Sometimes All you Need

This is a very impressive room. It is clear that space is not an issue in this home's floor plan, and why not go a little wild while designing a kitchen? When a designer has space, they tend to use industrial influences because they just can!  The color scheme of this room is a bit on the cold side, with the shiny stainless steel kitchen appliances and the cooler gray countertops and cabinets as well. We've got cabinets up the hoo-ha - I doubt any person alive could fill all of that cabinet space - but you could probably run a very successful bakery out of this kitchen.  Everything about this room screams extravagance from the gorgeous flooring, the stainless steel counters, all the way up to the shining ceiling lights. And did you notice that stone backsplash?

25. Uniquely Shaped and Inviting Industrial-Style Kitchen Space

Now this is a kitchen design that you're sure to remember. I've never seen an architectural choice like this one, to place the eating space cornering on a separation wall, but it just completely works. If anything, it's an incredible smart use of a small space.  What makes this room industrial is its rustic looking stools, stainless steel appliances and matching hood vent, but what makes it country home is everything else. I simply adore the white brick backsplash, the gorgeous window frames, the rustic wooden shelving, and farmhouse style kitchen sink just peeping at me from the back. Lighter colors are the main focus of this room, where darker accents bring dimension where it needs to be. I honestly couldn't have imagined a more gorgeous kitchen, and it is an incredibly smart design for a smaller space.

26. Complete with a Butchers Block Industrial Style Kitchen

The first thing in this kitchen design that catches my attention is that gorgeous slab of butchers block that is laid over a stainless steel kitchen island. Matching stainless steel appliances really the nail on the head when it comes to industrial designs. What brings us out of the industrial and into country home is the gorgeous hardwood floors (either distressed or simply antique) the beautiful white brick back splash, and the very sweet, arched shelving on the back wall with plenty of space for cookbooks and decorative dishes alike. I particularly love this kitchen, and though there is not much opportunity for seating around the kitchen island, it is still a place I could see myself chopping onions, rolling out pie crust, or making a snack for loved ones all the same.

27. Marrying Dark & Light – A Gorgeous Industrial Kitchen

Going through all of these designs, I'm really seeing how much contemporary designers are using really dark colors for their kitchens, and how much I like it! The key to using dark colors is to incorporate lighting where it needs to be in order to brighten it up, and here the lighting is intelligently placed under each shelving unit. The exposed brick on the back wall pairs perfectly with sleek black cabinetry, and it's very smart to use white counter tops so that the natural light coming from that huge westward window can just bounce right off of them. Stainless steel appliances are cozily snug in their rightful places, and a couple stools for guest seating on the opposite side of the kitchen island make this kitchen particularly inviting.

This design right here is one of my favorites in the entire collection. I especially love the incorporation of plant life into the design, which I think not enough people bring to their kitchens! This design is courtesy of Andrew Heiser.

28. Bright, Lights, Big – Industrial Kitchen Fit for a Queen 

I am an absolute sucker when it comes to big windows, especially when they are framing rooms that don't normally have big windows. The room is focusing on lighter colors, which is why the black window frames are especially poppy a dramatic. There is so much industrial stainless steel in this design, from the entire kitchen island (countertop included) to the gorgeous double fridge, to the entire sink and back prep counter with piped hood vent. This is a ton of stainless steel, but it somehow isn't sterile looking. This could be because of the gorgeous cream colored flooring, or maybe those expansive windows, or maybe it's because of the warm lighting emitting from those nifty pendant lights.

29. Simply the Most Beautiful Kitchen I’ve Ever Seen 

Like I said, I'm a sucker for big windows, so you can guess that I would get really excited over a house that is entirely windows. This is a really unique railway-car style home, with beautifully hardwood frame horizontal windows along the entire length. The inside could be made of Play-Doh and I would still want to move in. Exposed hardwood beams on the ceiling pair perfectly with the dark brown counter tops, and simple cream colored drawers bring a necessary pop, since the cement-looking brown floor is also brown. I think brown and cream is one of my favorite color combos! We've got two huge and deep sinks, a gas stove top - but I can't seem to point out the oven - and it looks like the fridge in the back has translucent doors which I've never seen before! This kitchen design is so simple, but I want to wake up to it every morning.

28. Are we Playing Chess or Making Pie?

Now the industrial-style aspect isn't as obvious in this design, but it's there if you look for it. We have distressed hardwood on the ceiling that looks like it's washed up beach wood (in a good way) with very similar wood flooring in the opposite room.  That distressed wood is brought up again with those interesting chess-piece-looking stools, but modernity punches in with that super cool painted tile on the floor, naked light bulb pendant lighting, and golden door handles and faucets. If you're looking for the fridge, it's hiding behind those huge blue-gray doors on the right. White brick back splash and white countertops make the design feel bright and fresh, which pairs so perfectly with everything else in the room.

29. Truly Huge, Magnificent, and Magical Industrial-Style Kitchen Space

This kitchen is really no joke. This is the one for you if you have a giant family to feed, or if you just really love hosting dinner parties. I love how the eating area is directly placed on the outskirts of the kitchen, giving your dinner party a casual and warm feeling. We've got stainless steel drawers, countertops and oven on the back wall, where the industrial style design is really clustered. Then we have a gorgeous marble countertop to bring some elegance to the room, with exposed wooden beams on the ceiling, and wooden tables to bring some warmth southward. This kitchen has so many different things going on, from the ceiling rack to hold your pots and pans, to the gorgeous painting over by the eating area. This kitchen space brings in so many different elements, but it's entirely cohesive.

30. Marrying all the Elements: Bringing Diversity to an Industrial Kitchen 

Here is another design that is combining so many different elements to create one harmonious look. We've got the industrial exposed support beam and wooden beams on the ceiling, and some type of hardware that looks like it might be from an old train car? You can't really get more industrial than that - let's just hope it's locked in there good and tight. From here, diagonal hardwood brings some delicious length to the room, which brings your eye up to the clean white cabinetry. Light hardwood countertops are just so warm and inviting, where the white tile back wall brings freshness. This kitchen is rustic but fresh, old but new, and truly the perfect shape. I love the kitchen island in the middle with the perfectly sized sink, simple stools, and waterfall siding with what looks like some type of aluminium!

31. Stone & Steel: Creating a very Sleek Kitchen Design

Here's another super cool design that is incorporating lots of darker shades to bring some drama. Let's just say thank goodness for those bright orange chairs or I might feel like I'm in Batman's kitchen! This design is industrial to a T, from the cement floors, the rusted metal table, the exposed piping and cement ceiling, to slate cabinets and dark marble countertops. This design is really sleek and modern, though I do long for a little bit of warmth or brightness. The natural light coming in brightens it up a bit, but imagine what it looks like at night time! We've got high quality stainless steel appliances, and I personally love the way the pots and pans are hanging on the back wall. This is the kitschy style I look for in kitchens.

32. The Boomerang Shaped Kitchen Counter

Now here's another super unique kitchen design that I've never seen before. Starting with the very obvious boomerang shaped kitchen counter, it feeds into its own little kitchen island for seating. This is truly genius, creating a shape that you won't soon forget. Now I don't think that this is the main kitchen of the home, it seems more like a cocktail hour area, but it is still industrial as heck with the chunky shelving, cement floors, and distressed hardwood on the ceiling. I love the dark gray panelled cabinets and of course, the sliding doors lining the entire back wall.

33. Is There Even Anything Else to Discuss Other than a Fireplace in a Kitchen?

And we're going to finish off this list with a bang, with truly one of the most special rooms that I've ever seen. This designer obviously wanted to make you feel like you were inside a sauna but throughout the entire house. We can move past the cement flooring to notice the gorgeous light cedar wood that is found on every vertical surface in the house. The sauna inspiration is really hit home with that gorgeous wood fireplace. You almost can't tell where the kitchen is because everything is so camouflaged by cedar, but you have all the prep space that you need on the back wall and a cute little oven.
