We’re going to take a look at a very nice kitchen remodel from Amsterdam. It has a beautiful industrial vibe and it features an interesting combination of materials. The current look and design of the space were the creation of designer James van der Velden of Bricks Amsterdam. The task was to remodel the kitchen, not just the whole space.
The combination of wood and concrete is a very interesting choice for the kitchen. Both materials have beautiful textures when analyzed separately and they contrast with each other when put together. It’s this contrast that makes the choice of materials so interesting in this case.
The designer chose them for both functional and aesthetical reasons. Concrete is a nice material to use in a kitchen because it’s durable and strong. Wood, on the other hand, is a softer material with a warm look and a texture and color that makes it look cozy.
The industrial look is given by elements like the concrete counters as well as accessories such as the pendant lights and the metallic accents.Furthermore, the reclaimed wood surfaces emphasize the beauty and character of the industrial elements and they have a similar charm themselves.The walls and ceiling of the kitchen were kept white, a simple and elegant choice, perfect for when you want the focus to be on other elements.
