The appeal of the industrial aesthetic starts with inexpensive, hard-working materials. Concrete fits the bill and is amazingly versatile and appropriate for a variety of surfaces, especially in the kitchen. Here are five kitchens that use concrete in a variety of ways — from flooring and walls to countertops, sinks and shelving... • 1 The K-1 concrete kitchen is a collaboration between designer Rainer Spehl and Berlin-based betonWare. • 2 Custom concrete shelves form the basic structure and backdrop of this industrial kitchen featured in Living Etc. • 3 This open concept oak framed kitchen with concrete countertops is another collaboration of Rainer Spehl and betonWare we found via materialicio.us. • 4 A concrete kitchen that appeared in Canadian House & Home via Desire to Inspire. • 5 This concrete island from Robert Timmons appeared in Living Etc.
