1. Use (and abuse!) of materials with a factory look
There are three materials that should play a starring role in these settings: exposed brick, if these are the original walls and they can be recovered; wood, but in its most natural appearance; and metal, in the form of appliances with a stainless steel finish or even as other modules, such as a central island.
When selecting the benchtops, you should try to create some contrast if the space being created feels a bit cold. For example, you can try a surface with a rough texture such as our Volcano line from Silestone. On the other hand, if exposed brick and wood dominate the space, you can compensate for their qualities with a crisp, shiny feel from a surface such as our ultra-glossy Dekton XGloss line. Another excellent choice may be natural stone, which can fill a kitchen with richness when it might otherwise seem rather austere. We recommend Sensa by Cosentino, a line of top-quality natural granites that do not require any maintenance, since they are given a revolutionary protective treatment that makes these surfaces highly resistant to staining. Another option would be one of the Silestone textures that emulate marble, such as the new Eternal collection.
As for the floors, one of the most commonly used materials for this style is microcement, which provides a very practical, continuous surface that is easy to clean and maintain.
