Industrial-style kitchens have become more popular in the past decade, partially because of the rise of factory-to-loft conversions, says Meghan Browne, a bath and kitchen designer at Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The look “adds a modern feel to the space while giving a nod to the history of the home,” Browne explains.

To keep an industrial kitchen from looking too cold or stark, Browne suggests mixing in warmer tones and textures, along with natural and organic materials, to achieve a “well-rounded colour and material palette” and a look that is both modern and utilitarian. Here are her top shopping picks.
