The kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s probably the #1 social gathering place of your home! It’s where family memories are made and friends gather when visiting. It’s also likely the most expensive room in your home to renovate (which also adds the most value to your home!), so when planning your kitchen’s design, you want to be sure it’s a style that will last for years to come. What we love about this modern industrial kitchen is its modern cabinetry and countertops are sure to stay in style for years, and a touch of industrial elements add an affordable touch of elegance.

Cabinets and Countertops
Updating your kitchen’s cabinets and countertops will not only add the greatest value to your home, it will also add the biggest wow factor to your kitchen. Granite is commonly used for kitchen countertops due to its durability and wide range of colour and pattern options. Polished granite creates a high sheen and a smooth surface that many homeowners love. To bring in a bit more of a natural element, try a titanium leathered antique granite countertop from Sims Countertops. Leathering granite has become a new way to finish granite countertops. Rather than a high-gloss, smooth finish (which can show smudges rather easily), leathered granite has a rather rough, slightly matte look that leaves the natural contours and grooves of the stone intact. Be sure to talk to your countertop professional to determine whether a leathered or polished finish would be best for your home’s lifestyle.
The clean, straight edges and lines of these cabinets contrast nicely with the natural pattern of the countertops. The horizontal lines draw the eye upwards, giving your kitchen the feeling of being larger and bringing your attention to the gorgeous lighted storage up top. Take a look at Kitchen Craft’s Winfield cabinets in Whitecap. Having light-coloured cabinets keeps your kitchen feeling open and airy while creating a canvas to showcase industrial or natural features.
The finishing touch for your cabinets is modern hardware. Richelieu’s contemporary metal pull in chrome for drawers and the contemporary metal knob in chrome will add functionality and style to your kitchen.
Backsplash and Lighting
Play off the natural stone of the granite countertops with a natural thin stone veneer panel from Realstone Systems. This silver alabaster shadowstone panel is ideal for installation on indoor, vertical surfaces.The horizontal lines of the backsplash offer a subtle break from the vertical, clean lines of the cabinets.
The feature item in this kitchen that really gives it its industrial feel is the pendant lighting. The fresh, industrial style of Canarm’s Wren pendant lighting is enhanced by the matte black finish on the canopy and cage. Complete the industrial feel by adding vintage style bulbs.
