One of the common drawbacks of industrial extractor fans is how loud they are. This can be such a problem that most restaurant managers choose to run them only when the amount of steam, smoke, and pollutants in the air reaches an intolerable level. However, there are some high end models that can run in a Quiet Mode that doesn’t make that much noise at all and even can be run all the time if you choose.
There is no need for extensive cabinetry in an industrial kitchen as open shelving on an exposed brick face is the norm, typically using reclaimed old timbers or beams that were already within the space. When displaying items on these exposed shelves, it is best to stick with the trending materials of wood, stainless steel and plain white dishware. It is hard to accurately recreate the looks of exposed ductwork in a space, so traditionally this type of design is used in renovated loft spaces.
The flooring of an industrial space is typically a sleek cement or dark or painted hardwood. These floorings are inexpensive and durable, and even when scuffed or marked up, they still look good in an industrial space. Lighting should be limited to simple factory type lighting and elaborate pendant lighting and chandeliers contrast with the overall feel. Yes, the industrial look is such a departure from traditional design, but it is still a look that many people love. It has a "simple life" type of feel, a carefree and easy breezy feel while still being raw and edgy. Your Kitchen will have a lot of character with this style.
Contact a Leasing Company - A restaurant equipment leasing company will ensure that you get adequate supplies, equipment and free maintenance on your new kitchen equipment, all for a monthly, quarterly, or yearly rate. This rate will be cheaper in the short run than buying your own equipment but over time you could probably have saved money by buying your own equipment. On the other hand buying your own equipment will not get you new kit every couple of years so leasing is still your best bet if you are just starting out. Be sure to find out from the company all the terms and conditions involved, such as what happens if you need to end the contract early - just in case the kitchen turns out to not be as busy as expected! You can find out off local businesses what leasing companies they use - and this is a great way to quickly find out the best companies.
