2. Corrugated metal. Cheap, easy to find and as tough as nails, corrugated metal can be a unique and inexpensive addition to your kitchen design. Cut to fit, it can replace glass cabinet doors or pantry doors, or even be used as a backsplash.
Custom. Can’t find any door style on the market that really complements your unique design intention? Design your own! Contact a local designer or craftsperson to help you create a personalized design.

For some people (read: me), black appliances are a default, not a first choice. But for this industrial-meets-artsy space, I can't imagine any other color. White would look bland, stainless would compete with the ultra-cool corrugated metal cabinet inserts, and anything brighter would complicate the room's streamlined palette. Black works here as a beautiful balance.
With a super industrial feel, the dark gray cabinetry and corrugated metal insets create such an interesting combination that one might not notice the funky fish hanging over the sink. Combining the lighter metal with the darker gray cabinetry keeps the kitchen from feeling too dark. Amherst Gray by Benjamin Moore is a great dark gray for kitchen cabinetry.
Want to achieve an industrial look in your kitchen? Try refacing your cabinet doors with economical and hardworking corrugated steel. Combine this look with shiny black countertops for a style that teeters on the border of rugged and refined.
