Kitchen lighting - Harking back to the overhead lighting of factories and warehouses, pendant lighting is particularly well suited to an industrial style kitchen. We love ones in copper, such as this bronze-effect dome light and this industrial-style copper light with eye-catching rivets and chains. If you’re looking for something simpler, this shiny Manison dome light is a great option. Or why not explore our Sylcone range of retro lights? Available in black, nickel, brass and copper finishes, they’ll look great in an industrial-inspired space. Plus they come with an oversized, hand-blown bulb that will finish off your lighting look perfectly.
Granite is built to last and is one of the most durable natural stones available on the market. With sealing 1 to 2 times a year, granite will last over a century. Even if you sell your home after installing an industrial kitchen, and the trend doesn’t appeal to the new homeowners, the space can be transformed without touching the granite, making it an incredible long-term investment for a home. It could be argued that your countertops will last longer than any investment that you make in your home.
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.
Most professional cooks prefer to have access to both gas and electricity for cooking. They need bigger ovens to accommodate larger trays and baking sheets and often their stovetops have integrated charcoal barbecues, grills and griddles. Cooking on a large scale generates a huge amount of heat so an extractor hood that more than covers the gas or electric rings reduces heat and steam to maintain a pleasant working atmosphere.
