If you are the proprietor of a busy bar area that currently is lacking a kitchen, you may well be leaving a lot of money on the table that could be in your pocket instead. A kitchen in a bar can have huge profit margins and also increase the likelihood of repeat business if your food is good enough. But before you rush into turning that empty storage area into a bespoke industrial kitchen, you should first of all follow a few simple steps:
While cooking and preparing food may be low on some people's list of priorities, for others these activities will completely dominate the kitchen design ideas: full-time cooks and caterers may only really feel at ease in a room that has been devoted to working with food rather than dining and entertaining. Professional kitchen design ideas are planned as workplaces, taking into account the exacting regulations of commercial hygiene standards. And it is worth noting that if you will be producing food for public consumption in your kitchen, the same constraints will apply, even in what you would consider your domestic environment.
Task-specific lighting is important, so that delicate jobs like filleting and icing can be undertaken without having to fight with your shadow: halogen spots provide glare-free illumination for the front of worktops and some extractor hoods incorporate a good light. Meanwhile rows of spots above the counters offer flexibility and efficiency. Regularly used pans and utensils are always within reach - either hanging above or immediately beneath the stove. Industrial units, with adjustable shelves and frames, from which utensils may be hung, provide strong, flexible storage; they can either be fitted or freestanding.
Kitchen sinks & taps - Stainless steel sinks are the perfect choice for an industrial kitchen – the metallic look fitting right into the style. They are hard-wearing and easy to take care of, as well as being attractive. We also offer a range of linen finish stainless steel sinks which have all the features of normal stainless steel while offering more protection against visible scratches. If you have a solid wood or earthstone worktop, why not choose an undermount style and your sink will stylishly fit in below the worktop?
