  1. Start with the basics: polished concrete benchtops

Whether you already have concrete benchtops or are starting from scratch, there are plenty of ways to achieve a polished look. Concrete is a popular choice for industrial style kitchens as it brings a sense of sophistication and refined edge. Luckily, it’s also getting much easier to find polished concrete benchtops in Australia.

  • Incorporate metal elements

An easy way to add an industrial feel to any room is by incorporating metal details. This could mean anything from installing metal shelving or cabinet hardware to hanging pendant lights or using an antique metal sign as wall decor. Get creative and let your personal style shine through!

  • Use stone or brick accents

Another popular element in industrial style design is stone or brick accents. This can be anything from a statement brick wall to small items like coasters or soap dishes made from natural materials. You can even DIY some of these accents using inexpensive supplies from your local hardware store!

  • Bring in Edison-style light bulbs

Edison-style light bulbs are having a moment right now and they fit perfectly into an industrial chic aesthetic. These bulbs can be used as replacements for standard light bulbs in any room but we think they look especially great when suspended from uncovered wires or installed in non-traditional fixtures like mason jars (as shown above).

  • Don’t forget the greenery

Plants add life (literally) to any space and they should definitely not be overlooked when trying to achieve an industrial chic look in your home. Urns, pots, and vases made from metal or stone are great options for holding plants in an industrial kitchen – just be sure to choose plants that can thrive in lower light conditions as many industrial kitchens tend to be on the darker side due to lack of natural light sources.
