Jan 14, 2022 | Blog

Changing your commercial kitchen’s layout can be rather tricky. This is doubly true if you have little to no experience doing this. To help you out, we thought it would be useful to put together a couple of tips that should be of help when you’re planning for your commercial kitchen layout.

If this is something that you’re interested in learning more about, read on as we list down four tips for a killer commercial kitchen layout.

1.   Customize Your Layout

Remember, there is no one best way to design a kitchen. You’ll want to customize the layout to accommodate your needs. Before you make a final decision about the layout for your kitchen, you should do some research about the various designs and layouts. It’s crucial that you explore all the possible options so that you can end up with the best kitchen possible.

You may want to discuss your ideas with your construction crew, as they may be able to make modifications in order to accommodate the design that you want. In addition, you should consult with your designer if you are working on a teaching kitchen. After all, you should create a layout that is ideal for the purpose of the kitchen.

2.   Prioritize Flexibility and Space Efficiency 

While there are a multitude of different things that you have to take into consideration when it comes to the layout of your kitchen, it’s also important to consult industry specialists to ensure that your design is flexible and uses space efficiently. Designing your kitchen in this way allows you to make adjustments in case demand for your services ramp up.

Not only will this allow you to serve your customers better but it also saves you money as you won’t need to make any drastic changes to your kitchen whenever adjustments need to be made. 

3.   Keep Food Sanitation In Mind

Aside from the things we mentioned above, it’s also important to keep your kitchen as clean as possible. Sanitation is important for every restaurant, especially since they have to adhere to food safety codes. In order to manage this, owners need to determine the right number of wash stations and the right sizes for the different items used in their kitchen. They need to decide what the best sizes will be for drainboards, waiter tables, and racks.

4.   Choose the Right Countertops

While it can be easy to choose commercial countertops based solely on aesthetics, you have to remember that commercial kitchen countertops will have to be able to withstand a lot of wear and tear. ​​

Countertops that are used in commercial establishments have to be durable all while matching the look that you are trying to achieve. Aside from being durable, you’ll also want to get countertops that are easy to clean so that you don’t waste precious time on cleaning.
