Industrial Kitchen : Country Farmhouse v Urban Chic
Whether you're sourcing from salvage and scrap yards, rummaging through car-boots to recreate an original look or looking to buy from new, restoration and industrial style pendants are bang on trend this year, particularly in kitchens around the country. These pendants are perfect for any kitchen/diner whether your fixing up a farmhouse, transforming a town house, updating your urban abode or simply adding more illumination and ambience to your kitchen.
Industrial lighting doesn't have to be confined to just converted mills and factories, these fittings can be added to any home to create a restoration look, a shabby chic interior and even a new build. We've sourced some amazing images to show you just how easy it is to include an industrial element in your home...
Full on Industrial
If your humble abode consists of a converted factory or mill then going for a full on Industrial interior is easy, most of the work will already be done with exposed piping and brickwork, stripped back flooring and metal pillars, just throw in a few stainless steel pendants and metal framed furniture and the look is complete. Keep colours neutral, if you want to add colour then retro reds and green worn metal works best...
Country Style Industrial
For converted farmhouses, cottages and even newly built properties you can always add an industrial element with a more subtle edge. Shaker style and country farmhouse interiors that incorporate light colours and wood will allow for industrial style pendants, white, cream and soft grey enamelled fittings are perfect.
