Industrial decor has a moment in the restaurant world when it seems like every hip new restaurant and bar has elements of that style on it. Beyond fleeting restaurant trends, industrial design in the kitchen not only looks good, it also makes a lot of sense. From easy-to-clean surfaces to open shelves that keep the essentials within easy reach, industrial kitchen décor is timeless – even if it’s a little trendy right now. Even if you don’t want to rely entirely on industry, there are a few ways here to integrate industrial decorative elements into your room.
