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.
Industrial extractor fans come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and strengths so it can be difficult to choose the best one for your restaurant kitchen. There are roughly seven different sizes that are available from 315mm to 630mm which can be mounted in a few different ways. Many businesses prefer the axial style of fan as it can be used for a wide range of applications. This article will discuss these machines and hopefully make your choice of fan a bit easier.
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.
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.
