Open shelves above worktops display more equipment, which may have been chosen for its stackability, while tall, deep shelves at lower levels are used as dry food cupboards for catering-size jars, cans and more weighty items. Many cooks prefer wide drawers so all the contents are visible from above, and can be easily removed and replaced. Razor-sharp knives - a cook's most precious equipment - are carefully protected in a knife rack or felt-lined drawer. One or even two dishwashers are essential rather than a luxury here, and they need to take a wide range of items: pots and pans as well as the standard dinner service.
The other side of the cooking business entails the supplies that help prepare the food that we enjoy eating. Industrial kitchen supplies are a necessity in any business or wherever you choose to place them. Are you in need of new freezers, dishwashers or ovens? If so, you definitely want to request catalogs, website browse and begin contacting manufacturers to see what kind of deals they are currently advertising. There is a wide spectrum of supplies that people do not explore but sometimes you have to be willing to think outside of the box.
Kitchen worktops - With a style that focuses on tiles and bricks, solid wood worktops are a great way to add more warmth and character. Darker woods, like cherry and walnut, work well in the industrial kitchen and they will develop over time – the colour becoming deeper as the years go by. They are thick and come with square edges, for a truly authentic and visually stunning look. If you want the look of wood with no specialist care required, check out our wood-effect laminate worktops – they are hard-wearing and come in several effects other than wood.
Kitchen cabinets & storage - Make your kitchen as efficient and functional as a professional kitchen with well thought out cabinets and storage. That way, all your stuff is close to hand. Dark, richly coloured units are ideal for an industrial style kitchen. The Raffello high gloss in anthracite (pictured) looks striking with bright metal appliances, the sleek, glossy cabinets making a real design statement. The Carisbrooke taupe is a little more subtle than the Raffello and when combined with the right worktop and accessories, also perfectly captures the industrial trend.
